COaTI Intranet Update

As you can see, the intranet's undergone some substantial changes since it's debut in California. After our first session, there were a number of clear "rough spots" that needed working out. Hopefully, those rough spots have been addressed and all is working. We'll be preparing an updated "How to use the COaTI Intranet" document, and will get that out to you shortly.
