The new DAU.mil has been live for about two months now and we’ve received a lot of great feedback from users. Some feedback was positive and excited, while others included constructive ideas on how we can improve. We made many changes based on your feedback, some small and some big.
First, we installed the commercial security certificates that come preloaded in all major browsers. This means you do not have to load DoD certificates into your browser to access the site from your personal computers or mobile devices.
Many users were also having trouble finding the links to course registration and logon that are located in the training center. To make this easier, we added course login/apply links to the front page quick links. This is an interim fix, and we plan to add buttons to the header to make the links available on every page of DAU.mil.
We’ve improved how the main DAU menu is presented. Items have been renamed and moved around to better reflect where the links lead. We want the site to be as intuitive as possible.
Couldn’t find our blogs? We created a full list of all blogs so you can find something you saw a month ago or search historical blogs. Navigate to the list by scrolling down on the front page to the "Latest Blog Posts" section and click "View All Blog Posts."
Finally, we made some improvements to the Tools page, including the ability to hover over a tool and see a menu with the full tool title and partial descriptions. At the bottom of the page, there is a text-based “All Tools” list.
Talking about tools, if you think of a tool that DAU could create to help you get your job done, click on the "New Tool Request Form" icon in the tool carousel (or just use this link: https://www.dau.mil/tools/t/Request-a-New-Tool).
We’re constantly looking for your feedback and insights on how to make DAU.mil even better. Please continue to click the feedback button at the bottom of every page. We’re listening!
