Newsletter Service: Soapbox Announcement System

The UConn Daily Digest is a recurring publication created to keep the university community informed while simultaneously reducing the number of messages sent to individual inboxes.  This is a well-known newsletter used to collect informative elements and to communicate them to a specific group.  ITS offers a similar capability to our community with our Soapbox Announcement System:  This service allows faculty and staff to create publications to be sent to collections of recipients.  Through this site, maintainers can manage settings, moderate content, and publish content while contributors can submit material to selected publications.  We are asking IT professionals and others to broadly socialize this service option to their respective constituents wherever it might prove useful.
