New Events Calendar

A new events calendar is now available on the KUMC web site:

It offers easier ways to download event information to your computer, mobile device, or social networking site of choice, options to be notified of changes to events, and you can even set up text message reminders.

For those signed up to receive weekly alerts from the calendar, you will no longer automatically receive them. To re-subscribe, go to the Events Calendar, and select the Subscribe button.

For those wanting to push events to their KUMC-based web sites, contact Internet Development for more information.

Web Statistics for SharePoint

SharePoint site owners can now view statistics on activity in their sites. If you've updated your site to the 2010 look and feel, you can access your statistics at any time by going to Site Actions > Site Settings > Site Web Analytics Reports.

Note that statistics are only available if you've updated your look and feel to 2010 (from the 'classic' 2007 version).

If you have any questions about site statistics or updating your site to 2010, contact Jameson Watkins.

New Search Engine on

A new version of the search engine on was released today. We replaced the Google mini search appliance for a hosted Google index of our site. Among the improvements:
  • Faster search results
  • Uses the latest Google search algorithms to provide the most relevant results
  • Thumbnail photos of the page appear next to results
  • One search also brings results from the online phone directory in the righthand column
We're continuing to fine tune the filters, synonyms, and keyword matches. Please contact Jameson Watkins at if you find any odd results.
