Google Chrome, Java and ART Adhoc Users guidance from Bowman Systems

Google starting with version 42.x has decided to stop supporting plug-ins which includes Java in their Google Chrome browser. This change will only affect ART users that use "Edit Report" which requires the installation of the Java plug-in. For these users we recommend switching over to Mozilla Firefox for editing reports.

Users that don't use ART and users that only use "View Report", "Schedule Report" or Dashboard ART reports can continue to use Google Chrome.

HMIS technical writer Linda Cataldo is leaving the team

I wanted you all to know this will be the last newsletter from HMIS technical writer Linda Cataldo. Linda has accepted a new position and will be leaving the HMIS team. Her last day is tomorrow, Wednesday, January 6th. Linda started with the HMIS team April of 2012 and she has been instrumental in ensuring the HMIS documentation is of the highest quality. She became very familiar the HMIS data entry and reporting so the documents would be very detailed and accurate. Linda has produced many exciting newsletters. We are sad to see her go but wish her the best of luck in her new position.
