It’s almost here! The new eRA Commons home screen (log-in screen) and landing screen (screen when first logged in) are going to be unveiled on Tuesday, January 12, 2020.

In the new design, important resources are front and center on the page. Resources for registering an organization; submitting a reference letter; creating Commons accounts; contacting the eRA Service Desk; and links to web pages are all easily identifiable.
Along with the new cleaner and more intuitive design, navigation to eRA modules within Commons (Status, IAR, XTrain, etc.) will be through the apps icon in the upper left corner of the landing screen. See Figure 3 in the original communication below.
