If you’ve noticed that the daily announcements look different today, that’s because Communications has replaced Today@UCAR with Staff Notes Daily, a Drupal-based application that brings the daily announcements in line with the rest of the main UCAR/NCAR site. The name change to Staff Notes Daily will help us streamline our ability to bring you news and information.
The functionality hasn’t changed at all—we’re still delivering announcements, calendar events, classified ads, the cafeteria menu, jobs, and visitors, all at 7 a.m. each morning. You can check the information online at any time at Staff Notes Daily.
The submissions forms on the Staff Notes Daily website let you post, edit, and delete as easily as before—just click on Announcements, Classifieds, or Calendar in the navigation bar in yellow on the right to submit material. The deadline for submitting announcements, classifieds, and events for the next day is still 4:15 p.m.
Instead of sending weekly compilations out on Thursdays, we’ll be sending these on Mondays, to better help staff plan for the week.
We are maintaining the Today@UCAR archives for your use. Anything that you’ve already posted to appear in Today@UCAR will be automatically transferred to Staff Notes Daily. There is no need for any action on your part.
Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with submissions, questions about the transition, or any feedback on the new system.
