Festive news title
December 2015 - Plans are well underway for training events in the New Year which we know you'll find of use and work continues on the hotly anticipated app. Register your interest today if you haven't already done so to be sure of getting all the updates as they happen.

It just remains for us to wish you an enjoyable festive break - we look forward to seeing you in 2016.

MSL App news and events screenThe latest development news from The App

The App has now been through two rounds of testing and we’ve succeeded in fixing some quite obscure but knotty issues. Now looking good to have the first trial versions set up shortly. Taking a bit longer than we hoped but it’ll be worth the wait!! On giving a sneak preview of The App to a potential client last week, we had our first “awesome...”! If you haven't seen it yet, The App has got its very own promo video - check it out here.

New releases you need to know about

We’ve been industriously working through a number of your wish list items, fixing a range of issues and delivering a general update of some popular functions in your MSL system. Many of these are already delivered in v7.75 and v7.80 - new poll display options, custom election page URLs, upgrades to checkout pages and author bylines on news articles. Full details are in the release notes. We also have some major enhancements already on trial; due in January are an upgrade of the WYSIWYG HTML editor to the latest version with a more up to date look and feel and loads of improvements to Idea Lists. Stay up to date with new developments by checking Next Release.

Teesside University Students' Union joins the MSL community

MSL is delighted to have been selected to work with TUSU as they implement a new website and membership management tools to support their student members.

Does your team need a refresh on the MSL Basics and Elections?

If so, you're in luck as we have two training sessions on those topics taking place in January 2016. We start with MSL Elections training on the 14th January 2016 and then move to MSL Basics on the 27th January 2016. Both sessions will be held at MSL's offices, starting at 10.00am and finishing at 4.00pm to include lunch and refreshments.  Follow the links above to book your places.

Our free web briefings' recordings are now available in Support

Follow the links above or contact us to have them sent over to you. We have another briefing scheduled for 20th January on making the most of the Feedback and Engagement tools you have at your disposal (idea lists, polls, live voting stats) so register now to reserve your place.

We're on our ho- ho- holidays!

The MSL elves have been working very hard this year and are all looking forward to a little break to put their feet up and enjoy a mince pie or two. So the MSL office including the helpdesk will be closed from Wednesday 23rd December and will re-open on Monday 4th January
