Squadron I.T. Overhaul

posted Jan 16, 2011, 1:18 PM by Lt Col CAP NJWG/GRA KING, ZACHARY Z

Good Afternoon Jack Schweiker Squadron,

Over the course of the past several months, we have been working to reconcile our communication infrastructure and develop a streamlined system to ensure that all cadet and senior squadron members, as well as all parents, are receiving all electronic announcements and other messages.

The first step in this process has been working to manually add your e-mail accounts to the appropriate e-mailing rosters (Google Groups).  

Secondly, all NJWG CAP members have a DragonNET account; however, we realize that many of our squadron members have still not yet been successful in accessing their accounts.  By the end of this month, we will ensure that all squadron cadets and seniors have completed the initial log-in process with DragonNET.  Therefore, starting on 01 FEB, all personal accounts, except for those for parents and guests, will be removed from our mailing rosters, and all squadron business will be communicated only through DragonNET.

Next, we have worked to update and also to integrate the online resources that we have available.  Using Google Sites we have updated the NJ-059 Members’ Site, created by Lt Col Jennings.  The Announcement page on the site, which is essentially a blog, is now updated regularly with messages and attachments.  ***Please note that from this point forward, not all announcements will be released via e-mail.  Only “Level-3” messages and above will be announced via e-mail.  All other updates will be released on the Announcement page.  To ensure that you are receiving all announcements, check the Announcement page at least weekly.  For your convenience, we have taken our I.T. development one step further to include an RSS feed for the Announcement page – this means that if you subscribe to the feed, you will automatically receive a copy of the messages on the blog as they are posted.

The Documents page on the squadron site has been primed with important documents, publications, and forms for your reference and utilization.

Our Google Calendar is being programmed, and we have started sending automated meeting invitations and reminders via the Calendar.  To fully utilize the features of the squadron’s Google Calendar, you must use your DragonNET account to access it.

The squadron facebook page has also been brought up to date and will be continually maintained as we move throughout the year.

Attached to this message is a memorandum outlining all online addresses for common squadron and CAP use.

Very respectfully,
