Spring 2016 update

Spring has sprung in Kingston!


Be inspired by spring and take some time out to clean your My Community Life content.

Can you jazz up your content to draw attention to your page? Is the content up to date? Are the contact details current? Do you have new photos to use for your page images?

It would be good to have a variety of options if you have multiple event pages.

The My Community Life team has been busy working behind the scene to make everyone's My Community Life experience smoother.

Some changes made to the website include:
  • Adding an 'information' icon at the top right of the screen. When you click on the information icon, it takes you straight to the instructions page which has lots of handy information and instructions to help make your experience easier. 
  • When searching for a particular community group, event or volunteer page - you will notice that the results are a little more colourful. Before, when you hover your mouse over a group, event or volunteer name - it used to be blue. Now, Community Groups are purple, Events/Activities are green and Volunteers are orange.
There will be more changes made to My Community Life over the next few months to make the whole experience easier for everyone.

Nominate someone for the Australia Day 2016 Awards!


An important My Community Life page we think you should know about is the Kingston Australia Day Award 2017 Nominations!
 
All of the community groups, events and activities on My Community Life exist because of an immense amount of dedication and support from volunteers. 

Do you know someone deserving recognition and applause for their volunteer efforts? Then nominate them now!
TIPS

Categories for Community Group pages NEW!


Community groups pages are now easier to search and find!
A new drop down list of categories has been added to the form that you fill in to build / edit your community group pages. You will be familiar with this list because it is the same category list as the event page.

Our team has busily been adding groups to all of the current community groups registered with MCL. Please have a look at your community group page and check that you are happy with the categories selected. You can easily edit them in your My Profile section if you want to change them.
 
Adding categories will help people searching the site find your group more easily!
Help spread the word about My Community Life!
The more groups that advertise their activities and events on the website, the greater value and usefulness it will have to the local community, which in turn will benefit all groups and organisations in Kingston.

So tell your friends, family and other local community groups and organisations to check out My Community Life! 
Stay tuned for the latest My Community Life news, statistics, and handy tips and reminders via quarterly email newsletters.
