CR4 Daily Digest Email - What You Should Know

Posted September 07, 2016 11:02 AM by SavvyExacta
Pathfinder Tags: CR4 Tutorial Daily Digest

The CR4 Daily Digest is an email summarizing new content on CR4. It includes the latest forum threads, blog posts, and news to your inbox every single day. You can also learn about upcoming webinars and new whitepapers that may be of interest.

The Daily Digest is sent out at about 10:00 PM ET each day. It includes posts from the previous night and the current day. Delivery has been a little bumpy recently, with some missed days and broken links. Those problems have been fixed and everything is working fine now.

How to Subscribe

You can subscribe to have the Daily Digest sent to the email address associated with your CR4 account. Here's how to do it:

  1. Click your user name (below the IEEE logo on the upper right side of CR4)
  2. Click the Edit Your Profile button
  3. Set the CR4 Daily Digest Subscription setting to Subscribe - Send me the CR4 Daily Digest

Is your email address up to date? Maybe you've changed jobs or you registered with an account you no longer use. If that's the case, you'll want to change your email address in the Email & Password section of your profile. Note that you will need to click on a link in a confirmation email sent to your new address in order for the change to go into effect.

Troubleshooting Daily Digest Delivery

Don't miss an issue! Follow these steps to make sure it's in your inbox each day.

The best way to ensure delivery of the CR4 Daily Digest email is to add this email address to your list of safe senders: reply@email.engineering360.com

By doing this, you can help prevent your email provider from filtering the digest to a bulk, spam, junk, or other folder.

Here are a few more tips:

  • CR4 Profile
    • Check the email address in your CR4 profile and make sure it's your current email address.
    • Review the settings in your CR4 profile and make sure you are set to subscribe to the Daily Digest.
    • Try changing your email address in your CR4 profile to an email address at a different domain.
  • Email Provider
    • Check your spam/promotions/bulk/junk mail folders.
    • Review your email filters and be sure that nothing is set up for CR4.

Occasionally there is a problem with our newsletter provider and the Daily Digest is not sent. Never fear, you can still access all of the same content! You can simply visit the CR4 homepage to see what's new. Clicking the show all forum threads or show all blog entry links or scrolling through the latest engineering news box will help you find content you may have missed.

There are 4 things I want to know how to do:

1. How to stop receiving webinar emails of subjects I'm not interested in and only receiving webinar emails of the things I am interested in.

2. How to get products and manufacturer listing of Asian and European HVAC companies on global 360.

3. How to post a photo in my reply like everyone else does. ( I use an Android base tablet running lollipop )

4. Clues as where solar eagle gets all of his crazy pictures ( like a furry soapy rat with a rubber ducky on its head sitting in a sink ) ��

Thanks for your feedback! We are actually working on many of these projects. I realize that the number of webinar emails can be a bit of a headache. The team is going to be taking a look at this in September.

We are constantly expanding the product catalogs available on Engineering360, but it is a slow process right now. We are hoping a major initiative in 2017 will be to really ramp up this expansion.

Which web browser do you use on your Android tablet? Tablets should be displaying the desktop version of CR4 rather than the mobile phone version. We released a new toolbar back in June that should be fully functional for most people. Can you see the toolbar when you post on your tablet?

And lastly, I cannot help you with SolarEagle's photo source. Maybe he will post a tutorial!

First I want to say that cr4 and it's members really try to explain the how & why things work ( devices, materials, systems, operations etc. ) This forum does so as long as a person attempts to present a question in a logical and articulate manner. I have to admit that there are a great many things that I don't know or understand but given the basics I will try to enhance my knowledge base.

I have some questions:

1. I see that a smiley face is called an emoticon, this word appears to be a conjunction of what two words ?

2. What is the purpose of a strike through ? If the person writing the text chooses not to use a word, phrase or sentence, wouldn't it be easier to delete that line of text and rewrite the sentence, or use a different word or phrase ?

3. What is hyperlink ? Can you provide an example of one ? And how is a hyperlink different than a link. Using the word link, are there any other words that attached to the word link that have used ? Such as, hyperlink, super link, sub link, etc. ?

4. Insert a video. The explanation says that the video must be posted to YouTube etc. But the explanation does not say that a photgraph needs to be posted anywhere. It appears that a photgraph can ascertained from a user's personal gallery ( and that is why there is a camera in the tool bar ) , yet a video cannot be sourced from a user's gallery ( even though every tablet, cell phone, etc. allows a user to capture still photography and motion video ) What is the rationale for this decision ?

Emoticon - The word is a portmanteau word of the English words "emotion" and "icon".

Strike through can be used sarcastically to share a thought you had AND your rewrite at the same time.

Link is simply an abbreviated way to say hyperlink.

We now allow users to embed video that is stored elsewhere on the internet. One reason why we do not allow you to upload the video directly to CR4 is the file size.

The strike thru gives the respondent a chance to be polite, instead of; you dumb shit, this is how you do it
