Streamline Live! - Quarantine Edition

Posted by Sloane Dell'Orto | April 30, 2020

We just finished up our second quarterly Streamline Live! webinar, where we announced some exciting new products and handed out quarantine-themed customer awards. We also held a mock public meeting (wearing ridiculous wigs, of course) to try and decide which remote meeting option was best for our imaginary district.

If you don’t have time to watch, here are the highlights (but you'll have to BYOB):

STRliveWe shared information about another upcoming webinar on how to manage a public meeting using Zoom Meetings - without the Webinar addition. You’ll be able to see the entire screen while I run through it … on a single 13” laptop. Super fun! 

Learn more or sign up at the top of our Comms During Crisis page > ... and as always, if you need a Streamliner on your practice meeting to help you figure this out, we’re here for you. Just email sloane@getstreamline.com and we’ll get it on the books.

We also unveiled two new products we are rolling out for our districts in the coming weeks:

Streamline Portal, our brand new intranet product just for special districts, is free to use at this time. Use Portal to collaborate with your team during the crisis (and beyond!), whether they are working remotely from home, or out in the field. If you’d like to learn more about Portal, schedule time with Maria.

Streamline Engage, an add-on for both Streamline Web and Streamline Portal, will be going into beta testing in the coming weeks with a few select customers, then will be available to everyone shortly after that. Engage allows you to email out any of your website or intranet content (think: agendas, pages, or full newsletters) to lists that you manage. You’ll also be able to allow people to sign up right on your site! If you actively email your community using something like Mailchimp or Constant Contact, we’d love to see if you’d be a good fit to help out during the beta phase - just email chris@getstreamline.com to start the conversation.

Best of all, we handed out awards to some of our districts who are doing amazing things with their websites. Truth is, all of our districts are doing amazing things with their websites, so we typically just go with the “most posted” type of awards - otherwise it would be impossible to choose! We've made a few exceptions this time, though. 

The winners for January - April are:

Best Overall COVID-19 Page (totally subjective, but still)
Orange County Mosquito & Vector Control District
Great public information, encourages the public to engage, fantastic video!

Most Amazing Overall COVID-19 Community Engagement Effort
Polk County Fire #1 - Signs Save Lives campaign (we didn't mention this during the webinar because there is more to come in a dedicated blog post next week - be sure to check back!)

We're proud of every single one of our districts - you’re all doing great work and we can’t wait to hand out more awards next quarter. We’re already looking forward to our next episode of Streamline Live!

As always, thank you for what you do. The entire Streamline team appreciates you so much - take good care, and let us know if there is anything we can do to help.
