So far I'm not liking the new format so much...
Why do they allways have to change something ?
Remember folks Freedom Is not Free !
Thank you. I have missed communicating with other afib patients.
Hi Jean, I just want to make sure you have been able to change your settings and are moving around the site OK.
As you are finding out, the site is different and it is important that you share your feedback with us so we can 1) help you navigate the site and 2) seek out and fix any issues that need addressing. You can do two things, post in the forums or email all concerns to SupportNetwork@heart.org for assistance.
For the notifications specifically - this site has a few options and there are steps you must take in order to receive profile comments and site notifications of activity.
1- To receive notifications you must change your privacy settings and tell us how often you want to be contacted.

A quick note about the email notifications. We are still hammering out the details of how these will work and expect this section to be up and running by early April.
If you have questions and concerns, please let us know. We are excited to have you and want to help you with the transition as much as possible.

I am having trouble getting the new site to work. Somehow my user name was changed with numbers added that I did not add. I did change my password. When I click on a lot of things, nothing comes up. I think more work needs to be done to make the site easier and quicker to navigate. It also says that I have not given permission for any information on my profile...very confusing. I hope the IT folks can improve the site so it is easier to navigate.
