- We will hold webinars for administrators in May to walk through the new interface. Look for an announcement very soon about the webinars.
- The DMPTool continues to get a great deal of use. We had over 300 new users in March, and the first quarter of 2014 was our biggest quarter yet: 1002 new users, and over 800 new plans.
There are now 113 participating institutions that have either configured their campus single‐signon or customized the DMPTool for their users. There are participating organizations in 40 states and the District of Columbia; California leads all states with 20 participating organizations.
