CAP SharePoint site

Matt,

I’m dying here for want of a robust color palette for sub headings – look how awful this thing I just made is:

https://ems-team.usda.gov/sites/fs-rd-pnwcap/QuarterlyPubUpdate/Home.aspx

Besides Heading 1” (SHOUTY) and Heading 2 (LESS SHOUTY), all I’ve got to work with are progressively lighter shades of gray that aren’t all that different from “Paragraph.” My “Alternate” headings aren’t much better; “Heading 4” and “Paragraph” look practically the same.

Can you please put some color in our world?

P.S. I don’t really have skin in the game since I’m leaving soon… but seriously, the option with the more diverse color pallette will probably make things like my tedious writing less painful to read through. Just a user experience trick from one communicator to another.

Hi CAP,

Just wanted to let you know that I am going to begin working on our CAP SharePoint site. Nothing will be deleted, just rearranged and reorganized for browsing ease. Some of the links may change throughout this process. And some new apps may be added.

I’d like our CAP site to be a good example that I can use when working with other programs. If you have any trouble locating a document or page throughout this process just shoot me an email or find me on skype and I’ll help you find it.

Publishing; not to worry I won’t be touching anything on your sites at this point. Frank and I will get together before any changes are made there.

Thanks,

Matt
