The defence gateway has been up and running for a few months now and I am interested to know what peoples thoughts are. Personally I'm finding that I'm missing information as this is just yet another communications medium to check in an already busy life. I receive probably 50+ emails a day at work, plus around 10 in my civvie email I have a dii account to check plus the email address used by the unit for recruitment. Add this to my personal mobile, work mobile, RNR mobile, facebook etc it's just yet another thing I need to check on a regular basis. Info coming out on civvie email worked, people checked them as a matter of course as part of their daily life. It may seem like an easy thing to do to log in now and again to check it but alongside everything else it ends up taking a back seat because everything else just lands in your lap. Nice idea in principle but in practice it doesnt seem to fit. I know that other people at our unit are missing things because of this.
