eXtension Enhances create.extension.org

Content Appraisal Report
In create.extension.org on your community dashboard page under “Manage Your Group” there is a new link titled “Tools and Reports.” When you click on that link you go to a page that will provide a list of all the articles that have been appraised. You can click the “more” link to filter appraised articles by a number of different data points as well as see a listing of appraised articles.

Optimization scorecard
In create.extension.org on your community dashboard page under “Manage Your Group” there is a new link titled “Tools and Reports.” When you click on that link you go to a page that provides a link to the Optimization Score Card. The scorecard facilitates a community’s ability to determine how well they are functioning as an optimized community of practice.

Individual contributor report
In create.extension.org click on “My Account” just above the “My Groups” in the right hand column navigation; you will go to your user page. You will see all the activity in Create. There is a pod on that page with the title “User Contributor Report” which shows articles, FAQs etc. that you, as a user, have created or contributed to in Create. If you scroll down until you see the word “more” and click on it, you are taken to a page that gives you the ability to filter on different criteria. Go explore the report and find your contributions.

New media library added
In create.extension.org under “Content” in the right side navigation bar there is a link to the Media Library. Although it is very basic right now it is functional. New features will be added weekly to improve its usefulness. The new media library can be used for adding metadata information to uploaded files and assigning them to groups. Our approach here is to create set of media files that are associated with each community. That set of media files will serve as a “Group media library” for a community.

iOS friendly editing on articles
You can now access, create, and edit content in create.extension.org from mobile devices using the WYSIWYG editor controls.
