Dear Community Member,

With so much going on in the CA Project and Portfolio Management Community I have consolidated recent activities in case you missed anything.

It's great that we have such a vibrant community to get quick answers to questions and gain product knowledge! We have very active members jumping in to help others out all the time. The goal of the community is to respond to every members' question so that no one goes away "empty handed".

Got an Idea? We’re Listening CA World ’16 Session Ideation

If you’ve been a member of the CA Communities very long, you’re probably familiar with ideas and ideation – it’s how you can offer ideas on how to improve the CA products you use every day, vote on other members’ ideas and comment on them too.

Well, we’re bringing that capability to CA World ’16 programming!

The CA World team wants your event session ideas! If there is a session that you’d like to see at CA World ’16, just visit the session submission form and tell us about it. The CA World team will then review those ideas and we’ll post the best ones here in the CA World Community as ideas. You can vote them up or down and comment on them. The most popular session ideas will be considered for November at CA World ’16.

Keep an eye out for the first ideas, which we expect to post soon!
