From Portal - Organizations List has changed? less access?

Hi,

Gary sent me an email asking if I work with any youth groups. I wanted to go through all Iowa organizations and be sure I didn't miss anything.

Go to>> Iowa only shows a few organizations on a page and it would take me many minutes just to load all of the pages in the list. So I didn't try this approach.

Instead I went to my control panel and set the second drop down on the left to Organization >> Iowa and then clicked on Organizations under PORTAL. In the past this would result in a list of Iowa all Iowa organizations. Now I only see three

1) my parthership
2 my parthership's school account (IAS Ed. Programs)
3) a 'new' account named "Iowa Academy of Science GLOBE v-School" I assume this was maybe created for all partnerships to address that our partnership orgs can't own sites? I don't need this one since I had IAS Ed. Programs set up a long time ago.

Either I am doing something wrong or this section has changed because I can't find a way to get my list of all Iowa schools. I put this in BUG because before the list was just there....now it isn't. Maybe it's a new feature. I don't care where but I need a place that I can see ALL (not 5 or 6) of my schools at once and easily review them.

Thanks.

Many new website features were released on June 29'th. I have had one training session on them and will hold another on Thursday the 11'th at 9:00 am MDT. I modified your account to include your territory (Iowa), please check ans see if that works for you now.

ok, I can see all the iowa teachers now, but I can't actually click on the names on the list and make edits/updates. I *think* that used to be possible...ok, just learned in our webinar that I probably am not admin for this yet.

I noticed that some of the people on my list have job titles in "organization" column and would like to go in and fix that.

Here is an example of one of the profiles that appears to have created a new organization because of an off-by-one error:

Hi Jon,

I am still having some trouble with this. Some of my organizations I have access to and others I don't. Also I noticed that I'm now the parent for Alabama Schools but the University of Northern Iowa got relocated to Montana? Maybe we should talk? I'm at my workshop until Tuesday next week.
