The new search result page is Sooo much better than before. It highlights what you are looking for and seems to automatically search RELEVANT gsu sites with that information.. unlike before where the search would find your keyword in any and all GSU docs. Thanks!1 vote
Please update the quick facts flyer with the one on the commkit that updated in early late December/early January.1 vote
Thanks for letting us know about this.
Mr. Tony explained very well the complicated subject of financial aid without technology (it failed him) but we got a clear understanding that early start to the process and GSU support this part of enrollment is not hard... Thanks Mr. Tony!!!1 vote
Thanks for the awesome feedback. We’re happy Mr. Tony is here with us.

They have added a contact us under the bookstore link on the left. Hopefully this helps.
Why doesn't the campus directory provide e-mail addresses for everyone now, particularly students? I teach a defensive driving class that students attend and I need to e-mail information to them, but I can't find addresses for most online. Unless they've e-mailed me to register, I can't send them information (some register by phone). We (staff) were able to view this information at one time. What's changed?1 vote
In the top, right hand corner of the website, there is a GSU directory of every single faculty, staff and student (unless they are new or opted out of the directory). Our directory has an image of the person and their GSU email address.
However, in order to access this information, you must be a current student or employee of Georgia State University.
Thank you for submitting this suggestion to our office.

I have a several [web]users who want to experiment with menu arrangements. Can we provide an online card sorting tool so that they can do that?1 vote
You can look into using:
This is pretty popular for card sorting.
The link from your degrees and majors page to the geo sciences program (http://www.cas.gsu.edu/geosciences) is broken.1 vote
Thanks for brining this to our attention. The link has been resolved.
Stories scroll so fast you can't possibly read the short paragraph before it moves on. It made me dizzy.1 vote
We have slowed the scroll a bit. There are some other constrains with the scroll what makes it hard to slow them more. We have added a feature that when a mouse is over the scroll it stops.

Hope this helps.
The current lower right corner toolbar placement is too obscure. Most blogs have social sharing and email icons located close to the post. Having icons in a visible and familiar spot could increase our visibility through social media sharing.2 votes
In January we deployed a “share” function at the top of the header that allows you to share any page or post. Thanks for the feedback.
I've noticed that the Carousel shortcode allows you to get specific text box alignments (e.g "bottomright," "topleft") .
Hero boxes only allow left, right, none alignments, we cannot control vertical alignments at all. Could we please get the ability to specify?6 votes
Check out the updated article that includes all the new hero box functionality including vertical alignment, new colors, and transparency.
Thanks for the great idea.
Hi in January we added the print option in the header (upper-right) to every page and post. This print feature allows you to delete the areas you’d like to eliminate from the page.
We have had numerous complaints from faculty and students re: the print template showing URLs that obscure the main content. Is it possible to develop a new template without the URLs or that places the URLs at the bottom of the page or somewhere else out of the way?5 votes
A print function has been made available for site/page designers to implement.
As an incoming Freshman's parent, I am thrilled to see you communicate and praise your staff and students. I know we have made the right decision on where to send our son for Fall 2014.

For the Core requirements, have a direct link for freshman and sophomore core requirements under the nutrition program .
It took me an hour to find the 60 credit hour core requirements for freshman and sophomore for entry to the Nutrition program. Other than that, the new layout looks amazing.1 vote
Thank you for your feedback. We added a link directly to the B.S. degree requirements in the catalog labeled “Freshmen and Sophomore Degree Requirements.” I hope that this solves the issue you reported.
Both the "EyeMed Vision Plan" and "Tobacco Use Communication" links go to the same .pdf @employees.hr.gsu.edu/wp-content/blogs.dir/107/files/2013/10/EyeMed2014(dot)pdf.
I'm looking to avoid that $50 surcharge, and I want to get as much information on the "Tobacco Use Communication" as possible. Thanks.1 vote

When a user-- including GSU students, faculty, and staff-- clicks 'map' on the GSU web page they are taken to a page that does not initially identify all of the buildings by name. It is only on enlarging the page that this happens. The 'commkit.gsu...' link has a list of building names and their relative locations more easily identifiable, and I believe it would be more useful to have that page as the initial 'campus map' url4 votes
We implemented a new campus map tool that offers this feature as well as more options to share specific filters, locations and more.
Just want to tell you that your website and usability changes are great! You've done a terriffic job in representing the university and granting ease of access to users.

The street outside of One Park Place is misidentified as Pryor St rather than Park Place. Pryor St changes to Park Place after crossing Decatur St from the south.1 vote
This has been resolved. Thanks for the catch.
