In this release, Commons has added a sidebar to the Search page and has updates to Navigation and the Footer.
For Canvas users, to have Commons enabled in your Canvas account, please contact your Customer Success Manager.
A sidebar has been added to the left side of the Search page, displaying the Consortiums and/or Groups to which a user belongs. If a user does not belong to any Consortiums or Groups, the sidebar will not display. By clicking a Consortium or Group name in the sidebar, only resources shared within that Consortium or Group will appear in the Search Results.
This feature was originally suggested by the Canvas Community.
The navigation bar has been updated with a blue background. Additionally, a user avatar and drop down menu appear in the top right corner with the option to logout of Commons.
Open Resource in New Tab
Resources can be opened in a new tab by pressing Command (Mac) or Control (PC) while clicking the resource name on the Search page. Users can also right click the name of the resource to open it in a new tab.
