The rationale for compiling email messages that are currently distributed to large segments of the campus into a digest format is
The intention of these efforts is to streamline communications, improve access to important information, and support students’ and employees’ management of the ever-increasing volume of email messages.
The following lists will no longer be used:
Submissions made by 3:00 p.m. will be reviewed by a moderator that day and if approved, will be published in the next day’s edition of the Mines Daily Blast. Moderators may review submissions outside of official work hours at their discretion. Submission of content in advance of the preferred publication date is encouraged.
Yes. Just select the intended audience on the submission form when you submit your item.
If you are a faculty or staff member, you may submit a request to receive the student version of the Mines Daily Blast. Instructions for subscription are on the bottom of the faculty/staff Mines Daily Blast
To get the YouTube URL: find the video you want to include, right click on the image and select the ‘Copy Video URL.’ Paste that URL into the “Link to website with additional information (optional)” field of the Daily Blast submission form.
If your entry has not yet been approved by a moderator: After you submit an entry, you will receive an auto-generated response that includes a link to edit the entry. Select this link to edit your entry and resubmit it.
If your entry has been approved by a moderator: Contact the moderator who approved your item and have them moderate the item again, this time ‘rejecting’ it. You will receive an email on how to edit the item, and the moderator will receive a notification when you save the edited item. (View the list of moderators here.)
Most announcements should be submitted to the Mines Daily Blast using the submission form. If you believe your message is truly urgent, contact your Vice President, who has the authority to approve your item for distribution to the campus.
We welcome your feedback. Please share your comments via the “Provide Feedback” link on the Daily Blast home page.
Linking each announcement or event to a web page is optional.
You may include images on a webpage that can be linked to your announcement or event, but images will not be included in the initial versions of the Mines Daily Blast. It is possible that this feature will be added to future versions of the Mines Daily Blast.
Your announcement/event can include a link to an existing web page that includes graphics, additional text, or whatever information you need to provide. OrgSync provides webpage development functionality that may be of use to you.
The Daily Blast includes important information for faculty, staff, and students, who will be automatically subscribed. The Daily Blast will be a source of critical information such as deadlines, closures, event notifications, etc. so you will not be able to unsubscribe. You will receive approximately 20 Daily Blast email messages per month, one for each day of the week (Monday – Friday.)
In comparison to 20 Daily Blast messages per month, 205 campus-wide email messages were sent to faculty, 188 to staff, and 186 to students in April 2015. We expect that the Mines community will appreciate the reduced volume of email messages that will result from implementation of the Daily Blast.
