    Man, I fight that every week! I see folks in the district office sending out broadcast emails (some with attachments that are big enough to put a drag on our email server) all the time. Usually I’ll contact them and ask them to post it on our main bulletin board; other times I’ll post it for them then show it to them later as a teaching moment. It’s actually in our policies for staff not to send these kinds of emails, but folks are driven by habit and the immediacy of email. What I also am trying to do is get folks subscribed to specific folders so the push notification occurs automagically via the intranet! That’s why I’m hoping IC comes up with a tool for manually subscribing groups so we can automate this and not rely on folks to subscribe themselves. This will DEFINITELY get folks looking at our intranet as the central source for news instead of emails! Great tip Carolyn!
