Our new download section is officially a hit! It's quite clear that the members of our community love this new feature. One place on our site where you can find the very best download files.
We launched the Download section at the beginning the year via our blog entry What's New in 2011?. Since that time, we've moved most of the downloads into this new section and even pulled the best attachments from forums and placed them in the Hall of Fame Community Downloads section.
A couple of features that we haven't yet mentioned is that the Download section includes version control and it incorporates the same "Like" system as the rest of the community.
Version control is used to make any notes about a file when it is added to or changed. The "Like" feature is great! If you download a file, be sure to click the "Like" button as shown above and you'll receive instant notification if the file is changed in the future. These are great features for a system of files that we'd like to see added to over time.
Now, it's your turn to submit your favorite MS Excel sheet to help us build our library. If you submit a file that is accepted and placed into the Downloads section, we'll upgrade your to ChE Plus status!
Even if you've downloaded a file and added information to it. Send it to us so that we can add it to the master file for everyone to use.
You can see what files are available to our premium community members in the ChE Plus section of the Downloads area. If we publish your file, you'll get access to a great library of technical articles, equipment specification sheets in MS Excel, and additional spreadsheet calculators. The idea here is simple...if you share, so will we.
