Have you visited your NAVUG Collaborate community lately? We’ve done a bit of remodeling to help improve your experience, and I’d love to show you around! 

Let me guide you through a quick virtual tour. To begin, visit http://community.navug.com, sign in using your Windows Live ID (upper right-hand corner - you must be a NAVUG member to log in), and discover these 3 key areas that we’ve enhanced.


There’s a streamlined navigation to help you easily find the areas of the community that are most relevant to you. Hover over the options in the navigation bar on the home page to explore what’s available.

Click on 'My Profile' and notice that you have several tabs for managing your profile, as well as your preferences for interacting with the Collaborate community. Be sure to click on the ‘My Settings’ tab—it’s here that you can adjust your subscription settings, your email and privacy preferences, and your RSS feeds using the drop-down arrow at the top of the page.

We’ve added your Event communities to the main navigation as well. If you’re interested in Convergence 2014 Atlanta, you can join this event-specific community by hovering over 'Events' in the main navigation, selecting the event, and clicking ‘Join’ on the community landing page. Stay up to date with the latest event news and enhance your Convergence experience by starting your networking today!


We’ve moved some things around on the home page. It's been tidied up a bit, our rock star Most Active Members are now featured at the top of the page (where you belong!), and the Member Blogs section has been moved up in the right-hand column to make your blogs more visible. 

Did you know that you can blog here? It couldn’t be easier—simply click on ‘Create a blog,’ type your content, and click 'Publish.' All members are welcome to blog in the community as little or as much as you’d like!


It’s easier to connect with one another. Simply hover over any member’s profile photo to view their profile information and quickly send them a contact request or a message. 

Speaking of profile photos—be sure you’ve updated yours. Networking is more fun when others can see your smiling face!

I invite you to take 5 minutes to look around the community…chances are you’ll discover a helpful feature that you didn’t know existed. As always, you can use the 'Contact Us' link at the top of the community if you run into any hiccups or can’t find what you’re looking for.
