We attended EdCampSFBay on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed catching up with old friends and meeting new ones! One of the things that we learned was that some schools were using Google Chrome Apps in the computer lab as an easy way for the kids to access applications. So we decided that we better get our Chrome App up in the Google App Store. Our app is now up there and it is a convenient way to access LiveBinders on Chrome.
If you decide to wander over to the Chrome App Store, we would really appreciate it if you gave LiveBinders a rating!

Previously, when the owner of a binder opened it, that binder would initially appear in edit mode. We’ve noticed that, often times, people open their binders to view or show the content, and would prefer not to be in editing mode by default. So now, when you click on a binder you will go in viewing, instead of editing mode on that binder. If you want to edit your binder, there are two ways to do that:
- From the shelf, as you mouse over your binder, you will see an edit menu. If you click on that button you will go directly to edit mode.
- From inside the binder, you will see an “Edit” link in the upper right corner. If you click on that link, it will take you into edit mode.
We hope this makes it easier to interact with your binders. We always love to hear your feedback one way or another!

Did you know that you can send someone a link to a specific tab in a binder? This feature is rather hidden, so here is the secret:
- With the tab that you wish to share open, click on “Share” in the upper right corner.
- Click on “Link or Embed”
- Click on “Show More Link/Embed Options”
- Copy the link next to “Current Tab URL:”
- You can paste this link into an email, facebook, or twitter.

When someone clicks on your name on LiveBinders, they will see your shelf with all of your public binders. You can now add your picture or icon to that public shelf.
It was so fun to see that Joquetta figured out this feature before we even announced it! If you haven’t yet checked out her library, it is well worth it.
To add your picture to your account, just log in and click on your username in the upper right. You will see a profile page where you can add your picture.
If you would like to add your website, twitter ID, or more about you, just scroll down on that page and enter the information under “Your website or description”. That text will also show up in the search results when someone clicks on your name underneath one of your binders.
We hope you upload your picture, we love to see the people in our community that are creating such fabulous resources!
