AceNotes Today

Monday, March 7, 2011

* Welcome to the NEW AceNotes

You asked. We listened. AceNotes has a new look today. Many have asked that it be shorter, as long as their information isn’t cut. We have reviewed other e-newsletters and hope this meets both needs. There are enough words to be more than a headline and if people want more, they can click for it.

That example was the 55 words allowed in the template. You can see that it goes to a complete story if you click for more. Please keep that in mind as you submit future AceNotes as it relates to what information will show without having to click for more detail.  We hope this is a solution that will work best for all. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns, at
