Happy New Year! Our new year’s gift to our LiveBinders friends is the ability to easily move tabs to subtabs and move subtabs up to tabs. Thanks for hanging with us on this one, we know that it took us a while to get there. But we appreciate all the emails asking for this feature.
To try out the new tab moving features, just click on the “Edit Menu” from your binder and then click on “Tabs”.
We hope everyone has a wonderful new year!

Thank you to everyone who asked us for collaboration features. Now you can have multiple people creating and editing the same LiveBinder. Here are just some of the uses that educators came up with for this feature:
- Student group projects – in your class or with a school across the country
- Teachers collaborating on lesson plans
- Teachers and students working in the same binder
- District or school binders that are a collection of resources
Dawn Wall, Technology Coordinator from Kansas State University, was one of our early testers of the collaboration feature. Here is how she is using it:
“This collaboration functionality is really awesome. For example, we have created a private binder to share information regarding a complicated program transition. This allows us to have select staff update the binder in a timely manner while all interested parties have access to view the binder and have up-to-date information. I also think it has great potential for K-12 and post-secondary education project collaboration”
A note to all of our early Collaboration users and beta testers: We wanted to let you know that we made some changes to collaboration since you started using it. For security reasons, we switched from user names to email addresses when you invite a collaborator. Your current collaborative binders should still work, but for new ones, you will need to use email addresses instead of user names.
Please see this binder to find out how to use the new collaboration features:
Please also keep those suggestions coming in. We greatly appreciate your help in making LiveBinders a better product!

We have added a new feature to LiveBinders that allows you to display an author name other than your user name. You may want to do this if you want to use your real name, your twitter ID, or if you are collaborating with someone and want to use both your names.
Your user name will still show as binder author if this box is left blank. If you want to change it, just type it into the form in the Properties section of the “Edit Menu”.
How to set the binder author name that is displayed on your binder
Here is how your binder author name will display:
