- (2017-09-06, v:2.2) Matthew Leon: Out of date information
I LOVE this VandyTab extension, however, it still shows Blackboard instead of brightspace and the resturaunts are incorrect (I.e. bistro now serves dinner and Last Drop is now Local Java). Are there plans to update it or turn over development to someone else if you've graduated?

Hey there - Blackboard isn't the primary course management system for Vandy anymore, but Brightspace is. Could you change it? Thanks!

A few updates that might be considered: Vanderbilt has switched from Blackboard to Brightspace Vandy Vans will now be running ~22 hours a day
- (2016-04-24, v:2.2) Disabled Vandy Tab
Hi! I'm not sure what happened but all of a sudden my vandy tab stopped working. When I go on the chrome web store and go to VnadyTab, it says that it is added to chrome and says "This item has been disabled in Chrome" and has a link to enable this item but that button doesn't work. How do I get the vandy tab back? Thanks
