A quick update - the solutions summit CPEs are now showing up in the CPE view.
The magazine CPEs are still missing.
I can't agree more. It's like a perfect demonstration of misapplied flat design just to "look modern," with terrible usability. Did they not pilot this with actual members at all?
It looks like the CPE portal redesign has finally shown some corrective results over the past few day, but some persistent issues still remain.
It is surprise, and upsetting, to see an international organization in, of all fields, information technology, has fork-lifted into a new application without adequate testings. I used to be a PM in applications development, and am fully aware of the difficulties in any large scale development efforts. But this project seems to have violated some fundamental principles of IT project management methodology. It did not deliver the functionalities, or did not fully test the functionalities. It failed load testing still. With all the tools available, I am really at lost as to what is going on behind the scene? Have we conducted alpha testing, let alone beta testing and user testing? What happened to the project reviews?
I have no knowledge of the actual development work, and am not trying to point fingers. But I am hoping that the project management team and the project sponsors take an in-depth look at what went wrong, and listen to the user communities, to compile the lessons learned, so that any future projects can avoid the shortfalls.
I wanted to reach out to all of you who have reported an issue with the new CPE Portal to provide a couple of updates. Within the Community, I have taken and compiled all of the reports of errors/issues to one thread (the one I am replying in here). Our team is working on all of the issues that have been brought up here and as we receive updates we will share them in this thread to notify everyone.
In the meantime, if you have an immediate need, want to supply more information about a problem you encountered, or have any further questions, you are encouraged to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org as they are best equipped to help you.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your patience while we work on fixing these issues.
