Next week, the CA Release Automation community will be going through a few minor changes to the look and feel of the site. The changes to this community will be very minor, but there is a short overview of what you can expect below.


So, what will this change look like? Once the change has taken place, if you head over to the Overview page (the default page when you land on every community) , you will see an overview page much like the one we have on most of our communities today, with one major's missing the Activity feed. Don't panic! The activity feed is still available, but it has just moved off onto it's own page, the brand new "Activity" page. The Activity page will feature the activity feed in addition to some tiles containing recent content like tech tips, unanswered questions, and more! Our goal is to make the activity page your 1-stop place for recent content on the community, whereas the Overview page will now be dedicated to featuring important content like helpful links, featured users, and featured content. We will also be adding a new Upgrade page with information on the newest features and resources to help you plan and perform your upgrade to the current release of CA Release Automation.


This chart will better explain the new pages in detail:


This is the main landing page and is designed for new visitors. It is also great for a quick snapshot on things that are important in the community (helpful links, related communities, etc.)  

ActivityThe Activity feed that used to be on the main overview page is now here, on its own page. The right sidebar on this page will be used to feature recent content like recent blog posts, new ideas, unanswered questions, etc.

No change to this page other than it is now 2 tabs to the right of the Overview Page. The main change you will notice is that there will now only be 1 category: CA Agile Requirements Designer. You can still organize and search for content by content type (blog, document, idea), tag, or filter by text.


This page shows all of the people who are following this community.

Subspaces and ProjectsAs of right now, we do not have any subspaces on this community, so this page will appear empty.

The Calendar page will give you a month by month view of what's happening in the community.


The Events page is a dedicated page meant to showcase all past, current and upcoming events with links so you can easily sort through and register for upcoming events!


We also have a few more pages that will be added in the following weeks - keep an eye here for an update once those have been created! We hope that the addition of more pages will allow us to better organize content in the community and, in return, help you find what you need much faster!


As always, there is still the option to follow content via your inbox or activity streams.
