At the upcoming Global Exchange conference, TimeBanks USA will debut its most recent upgrade to Community Weaver, our online TimeBanking software.

A key feature of Community Weaver 3.0 is the way that it easily works on smart phones and iPads. State-of-the-art programming means that the software will automatically adjust to fit any size screen for computers, notebooks and phones.

With the software upgrade has been designed for easy scrolling, and quick responsiveness, connecting to other TimeBank members, finding and sharing information, and registering exchanges will all be easier and quicker.

A Special Moment

Ten years ago, Community Weaver, the internet-based TimeBanking software offered by TimeBanks USA was born.

A decade later, the newest upgrade, with a new look, new feel, and new features, will debut at the upcoming Global Exchange conference. The alpha version of Community Weaver 3.0 will be demonstrated by TimeBank tech-coordinator Eric Bachman and TimeBank coordinator Abby Greer.

Like the very first Community Weaver, the latest upgrade version has called on intensive input from an advisory group of TimeBank coordinators and leaders. Since mid-February, the group has met weekly to confer on what the upgradeā€™s features should offer to best serve TimeBank coordinators and members.

In the weeks after the conference, through the month of August, a group of additional TimeBank volunteers will be trained to try out every feature of the upgrade.
