Under no circumstances do we wish students to share their ArgoNet user ID and password.
Student leaders can assign members to Positions that provide them with customizable administrative privileges. Refer to the Student User Guide for detailed instructions on how to assign positions to specific members and adjust administrative privileges.
You have the ability to include URLs to your group's Facebook and Twitter pages within ArgoPulse. You also have the ability to share events with over 330 social networking sites.
Each RSO does have the option to host a website on the UWF server. The problem with that option has been maintaining information year to year.
ArgoPulse provides a website that is edited using a what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editor, which is much more user friendly and requires no downloads. ArgoPulse is NOT intended to replace Facebook or any other social networking sites.
The University of West Florida is currently redeveloping ARGUS (MyUWF). The new MyUWF portal is estimated to be launched in the 2011-12 academic year, at which time ArgoPulse will in fact be housed therein. ArgoPulse will actually be the equivalent of a "tab" within the ARGUS portal and will provide single log-in access (once logged in to ARGUS you won't have to log-in to ArgoPulse separately). Additionally, the calendar and event submission processes developed in ArgoPulse will feed the University's new global calendar, eliminating the need for multiple event submission processes and providing a single point of access to campus events.
The Event function is a pain to use. There isn't a way to start an event description and then save for later before submitting through Student Activities. You have to submit it and then any little update requires it go through the approval process all over again. There also isn't a way to delete an event once it's been created.
ArgoPulse has been designed to allow RSOs to assume greater responsibility for posting their upcoming events and activities. A result of that added responsibility is the need to be organized and thoughtful when planning. It is recommended that all organizations wishing to post events create them in a Word document and have them edited for accuracy of spelling and content prior to submitting them to the events calendar.
