Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Community Center?
AAJ launch the new and much improved community platform for list servers and document libraries in the Summer of 2020. AAJ members still have access to their list servers right from their inboxes, and this new platform builds on that network. The center serves as a single point to manage your AAJ list servers, access discussion archives and attachments, and connect with the other members of your groups.
The email addresses for AAJ's list servers changed during this transition.
Why the change?
The new platform was selected based on member suggestions for how to best make content available for member groups. It will improve your ability to read and respond to discussions online, search the discussion archives and retrieve past attachments, change your list server settings, read newsletters, and view the document libraries. These features will be rolled out over the next several months.
What is an Allowlist?
An allowlist is a list of email addresses or domains from which you want to receive emails. By adding an address or domain to your allowlist, you are telling your email system not to filter email from that address or domain. This is the first and most critical step to take to ensure you receive your list server messages.
You will likely need to work with your IT department or vendor. Please ask them to add the domain connectedcommunity.org to your organization's "allowlist." For more detailed instructions, click here.
