Celebrating 10 Years of Digital Services Georgia

As we turn 10 this year, we’ll keep educating, gathering, analyzing, improving, and reporting alongside our agency partners. We know there will be more challenges and opportunities long before our next milestone; we look forward to solving them together in all the years to come!

Visualizing Data to Tell Our Stories

The Georgia Data Analytics Center (GDAC) site provides access to easy-to-consume data and analytics from across state government. GDAC provides transparency and accountability to lawmakers, agencies, researchers, and the general public.

New Web Application Firewall Adds Another Layer of Protection

We’ve just added a layer of protection from outages called a Web Application Firewall (WAF). It’s an additional set of tools that our engineering team uses to monitor and block unwanted traffic.

All Basic Training is Now On Demand

Our training program continues to grow to meet you where and when you’re able to take courses! Through our LMS, we want to equip you with the skills needed to use the robust features in GovHub and GovHub Analytics. 

Closing the Loop: Why Your Feedback is Important

At this year’s GOVTalks, we spoke about how Digital Services Georgia uses customer feedback to drive GovHub forward into a more mature platform. What do we do with the feedback that we receive? And how do we work to ensure that the changes that we make to the platform benefit all of our content managers and our constituents?

Find the Right Type of Content With GovHub’s Type Tray

At first glance, Type Tray might just look like an expanded version of the dropdown list. But when you look closer, you’ll see some extra details that can help you find the best option for your content. It is a little like walking into a fine clothing boutique with your personal stylist on call. Inside this boutique, all the clothes (your content types) are arranged by occasion and your stylist (Type Tray) helps you choose your best options.

GovHub’s New Claro Theme: Easy on the Eyes to Help You Focus

GovHub gives you the tools you need to move your content off your to-do list and onto your website. And with the new Claro visual design system in place, that process will be easier than ever.

Real Georgians, Real Results: Usability Testing for a Better Georgia.gov

Last year, we updated the state flagship website, completing our GovHub migration project. As we continue to tweak and build out new content for Georgia.gov, it’s worth sharing why.

How We Use Alerts on Georgia.gov During COVID-19

Alerts are an effective way to make sure important content is seen, but that message gets lost if you ignore best practices. We thought it would be instructive to highlight how we rolled out the Alert feature on Georgia.gov early during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how we adjusted our approach as time went on.
