What's a release?

Simply put, a release is a package of software updates consisting of new features and bug fixes along with new content. On CCL Community, we'll release updates every other week.

New Features 

  • Event Default Photos. Each of CCL's sitewide event categories will now have a template photo added to their default setting to streamline the creation process and add an additional visual element for our CCL Community event details.
  • CCL Community events require being logged in to see event description details. To enhance CCL's volunteer's video conference security CCL Community event pages now require a login to be visible.

Bug Fixes

  • Event Invite.  The Group Invite "Send to All" issue was fixed so that using the "Send to All" button for an event invitation is once again sending the invite to everyone in the associated group, unless their email has bounced messages in the past or they've opted out of Community emails. For more information see this FAQ.
  • State/Regional Custom Groups Tool. The description field has been edited to clarify that editing the field and saving the changes will replace text that has been saved in the "About Us" section of one's group page.
