Sakai 11 Upgrade: Organize Site Favorites

sk11_upgradeTHIS IS IT.

The Sakai 11 Upgrade is TOMORROW! Sakai will be offline tomorrow, December 20, from 8am until 5pm while we apply the upgrade. We will work diligently to bring the system back up as soon as possible.

With the Fall 2016 Semester now over, one of the first things you’ll likely want to do soon is update your top Sakai site tabs. Sakai 11 makes it much easier to do so with the new Sites and Favorites features!

Sites Organized by Term

Starting tomorrow, you will find a new Sites icon in the top right corner. Clicking on this button will display all sites you are a member of, minus the ones you have hidden from your view. It will be even easier to find your Sakai sites now as course sites will be organized by term on the left-hand side and project sites on the right.

You can still hide certain Sakai sites from your view through Home > Preferences > Sites. Note the My Workspace tab has been renamed to Home.

Organize Site Favorites

It will also be easier to organize your favorite Sakai sites at the top of your screen. In the Sites window, simply star each site you want displayed. Then click on the “Organize Favorites” tab to drag and drop your sites in the order you want them displayed. It’s as simple as that!

And 3…2…1…it’s time to upgrade!
