Fast way to Tutorials when logged in to your Droplet control panel

When logged in to your droplet control panel at https://www.digitalocean.com/droplets I noticed that there is not fast way to access the Community/Tutorials without having to open a new tab and manually typing the address.

I think the digitalocean logo should link to https://www.digitalocean.com/community and open in a new tab. (or provide a link to community in the menu.)

    Hi, In late March we added a new Dashboard page to the Control Panel along with a new footer navigation. We added a direct link to Tutorials in both places thanks to your feedback. We hope the changes make it easier for everyone to find the tutorials they need, and we are planning on making the integration even more seamless in the future. Thanks for the feedback!

    Sounds like a great idea... what kind of feedback do you want?

    This feature was previously raised in another thread. You should consolidate your votes, over there: http://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digital-ocean/suggestions/3990458-fast-way-to-tutorials-when-logged-in-to-your-dropl

    Great suggestion we will be looking to integrate the community section into the control panel.

    I agree, this is a problem. It's the first thing I noticed was wrong with the site... I have to log out to get access to help section! I'd suggest, instead of waiting on a redesign, just add a link in the left nav in the meantime.

    Hi Calvin,

    We are working on a large redesign which will make that information front and center and much more easily accessible from inside of the control panel.

    Thanks

    We will be integrating the community section more tightly into the control panel over the next couple of weeks.

    Rather, I should say, manually travel there. Just to be clear.
