Announcing the Launch of an Enhanced, User-Friendly Web Site
See anything different lately when you visit the APTA web site? How about a streamlined service that provides easier navigation with a single sign-on?
APTA launched its redesigned and redeveloped web site on Sept. 1. In addition to updating the site’s look, APTA has added features—such as updated member forums—in a more user-friendly, easier-to-navigate format that directs viewers to the specific content they want.
Another change? In the past, visitors often had to log on more than once for different applications: for example, after logging on to MyAPTA, the user then had to log in a second time to enter the member forums. Now all it takes is a single click on the home page.
And the new developments are ongoing. APTA is currently testing “committee collaboration sites” that will allow each committee to have a private, “committee member only” portal to provide such features as a private committee forum separate from general member-only forums, a place to share documents, and a shared committee calendar. APTA also is working on integrating other APTA web properties, such as the APTA Standards website, to further extend the single sign-on capabilities.
