The SNO Report: A new weekly webinar from SNO

At SNO, we take support seriously. From our training materials, support videos, online chat and phone support, and personalized training services, we’re dedicated to helping you get the most out of the SNO platform.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the start of a newweekly webinar series. Each week, a member of the SNO Patrol will provide a hands-on 30 minute demonstration of a product or feature from the SNO platform that you and your staff can join live. And if you can’t make the live session, we’ll record each one and make it available for you to view later.

To kick things off, on March 9 at 3:00pm (CST) LaurenFeller will demonstrate how to use the FLEX design options to design a stunning homepage.  To join, simply visit at 3pm on the 9th and follow the onscreen instructions.

One last thing, we need your help coming up with a clever name for this new service.  Send us your wittiest ideas.

Distinguished Sites Update

By now, you’re all probably well aware that it’s badge season here at SNO Sites.  Although we’re just over two months into our recognition program, we’ve already seen an impressive number of submissions and badge recipients.

So far, 63 programs have earned badges, with quite a few schools being first-time applicants, or even brand-new to the SNO Network. Carmel Catholic High Schoollaunched their SNO Site this November, and they’ve already managed to snag a Site Excellence badge.

While the most popularly-earned badges this season are the Site Excellence badge and the coveted “Best of SNO”Excellence in Writing badge, we encourage you to keep applying for all of the badges – even the ones you’re not feeling so confident about. If your submission doesn’t meet every guideline for one of the badges, we’ll let you know what to fix, and how to fix it.

So what’s in it for you? Oh, just the esteemed bragging rights that come along with being a SNO Distinguished Site, a fancy certificate to prove it, and a letter from us to your administrator, singing your praise. This year, seven schools have already claimed their DS crowns, which is more than double the number of Distinguished Sites we had this time last year.

Submissions will be accepted until June 1, 2016, but there’s truly no time like the present – apply today!
