Easy button strikes again!
Did you notice? In recent days, some of your most common requests to make this site easier to use have been developed and released.
- Notification Preferences at Group Level: now you can set separate email and text notifications for each group! Be notified of everything that happens in your class groups, only announcements and the new discussions in a club group, receive SMS/text messages of events in three groups—whatever you want. Check it out under Account > Edit Notification Preferences.
- “Message” on User Profile Pages: if Conversations is enabled, you’ll see a “Message” button on users’ profile pages. This is a super easy way to send a 1-to-1 message with unlimited characters (wallposts are limited to 256 characters). Replies will appear under Conversations.
- Uploading and Organizing Your Stuff: if you want to add multiple files at once to Your Stuff and organize them with labels, there are a lot fewer clicks to do that now. For example, you can drag and drop all the contents of a folder into Your Stuff -- and all the files will have a check mark. Then you can apply a label, which could be the same as the folder name you’d used on your desktop. If you haven't created the label yet, no worries. Do that, files are still checked. Now apply a label--or multiple labels! Booya! Best of both worlds.
Note: “Drag and drop” requires a browser that supports HTML 5, including Chrome, Firefox 4+, Safari 4+. Internet Explorer 9 doesn’t support drag and drop, but it does allow you to select multiple files at once.
Keep up with all the latest enhancements and fixes as they are released in the new MBC Release Notes topic.
