Note: Improved Visual Appearance for Commons: Look for an enhanced visual appearance for Commons over the next few months, as it moves to the new look and feel of other eRA modules. The new look is part of a required technology update that will enhance the security and stability of Commons. The capabilities remain the same. However, there will be changes in the way users navigate to other modules, access action items, export documents, etc. For additional details and images, please visit: eRA Common: Improved Visual Appearance
Note: Users with Multiple eRA Commons Accounts: Users with multiple eRA Commons accounts should hold off on moving to two-factor authentication until 2024. eRA will then have a solution for users to consolidate their multiple accounts into a single eRA account that contains all their organization affiliations and roles. More importantly, once users complete the consolidation process, they will be able to associate their Login.gov or InCommon Federated account with one eRA account to support all their authentication needs. (See eRA Commons roles).
Note: eRA posts Deployment and Maintenance Calendar on the eRA Website. Updates and additional details about planned maintenance are documented in this calendar as they become available.
