The Top 10 Times have been updated as of 1-23-2012. We have received a few comments about formatting and search capabilities and I wanted to share some of the details, limitations and options.
First – the why. We have opted to load most documents as Google Documents. We store the document in the cloud and allow anyone to access without signing in to a google account. One of the benefits is that we have one single location where the documents are stored which helps keep files organized especially since we have multiple hands accessing the files. A second benefit is that people accessing the document from a smart phone or tablet can view and search the document (more on the search under limitations) without having to download the actual document.
Second – the limitations and options. We have had a few instances where people were asked to sign into their account in order to access the documents. That should not happen since most documents are set to public access to view. There is always the possibility that by accident we limit access and we will try to ensure this does not happen. Another limitation we have discovered is that on large files (such as the top 10 times and the bylaws) that the online search option only indexes a set number of characters. Google is aware of the problem and we hope there is a resolution soon. I tried an online search (look in the top right hand side of the document for a search window) on the recent Top 10 and it appeared to only search the first 100 of 120 pages. You can always download the original pdf (under the file menu on the top left side) and the search through Acrobat works fine.
