No worries--sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I left my computer at NORC last night so I wasn't on email until just now. We'll set up a time for whenever...


I'm sorry we missed each other this week. We are very excited about our new website framework, the most important aspects of which are the following:

1) Better (and easier) administration of users (e.g., users may recover (securely) their passwords on their own if they forget them, we will be able easily to designate certain areas of the site as being accessible only by certain users or groups of users, etc.)

2) The ability to add events, to view them in a shared online calendar, and to download them (in iCal or vCal format) for easy importing in users' personal calendars

3) A simplified and enhanced bulletin board, making it possible to modify (and even remove) items that have been previously uploaded

4) An easier (and more dependable) method for managing "official documents" and related content

5) The ability to create workspaces easily which may then be used by a particular group working on a particular project

6) Overall, a more professional-looking and capable user interface.

As I said, we are currently testing this new framework on our development server and making a few final usability tweaks. We are also figuring out the best way to migrate all of the content from the current site to the new site. Although we shall ultimately replace all of our current project sites, our plan is to do the NSHAP site first. We've had a few unanticipated delays in the past couple weeks (e.g., sickness, a couple of emergent issues related to other projects), and next week is going to be a bear catching up. But sometime during the week after that (April 3rd) we can set up a time (perhaps on Wednesday that week?) to give you a brief demonstration. The new site should then be ready shortly thereafter.
