sare notes in a recent Forums posting that we have updated the look of the console landing page. The new Dashboard provides a simplified, heads up view of activity on zoomshare.
With the new Dashboard users can better track their friends list, send and receive invites and update their profile and directory information. Of course users can still edit their website or upload photos to their photo album by using the navigation tabs at the very top of the console screen.
How does the new Dashboard help users better track what's going on? Well when a user has a new Message or Invite the Dashboard lets the user know of the new item by highlighting the console as shown in this screen shot:
Moreover, we now send out notifications of certain updates to you when your friends have made changes to their zoomshare sites. Which also makes it easier for users to keep track of what's happening on zoomshare:
What kind up update triggers a notification? If a friend edits a web page, adds a blog post, adds an image to a photo album or adds an item to their shopping cart then a notification will be on its way to you.
When does the notification get sent? Well currently we process our update logs every 24 hours at 3 am Central Time. That means most users will have a notification of a friend's update the following morning. Over the course of the next few weeks will will be adjusting the timing of this process to find the right balance between timely notification and information overload.
In the meantime, enjoy the latest set of updates and let me know what you think
