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. The CCL Community Release Notes are published after a group of significant new features, bug fixes, and/or content updates have been released. Ask any questions in the comments below.

New Features

  • New Content for Volunteer Use. Subscribe to this new category in CCL Community's Sitewide forums to get biweekly direct download links to all new digital content from CCL's marketing department. Ask questions, discuss new content, and make requests for future digital content.
  • Text Opt-In On Chapter Rosters (and State Rosters).  With more groups using text messaging to notify groups of meetings and other events, CCL's IT team wanted to provide a way for group leaders to both download a list of SMS opt-ins as well as a way for group leaders to opt their chapter members out (but not in), both rosters now provide access to three new features in the roster view.
    2. In the "Export" tab there is now the ability to sort your roster by Text Opt-In status and export only those that have opted in (or not opted in):
    1. In the "Roster Details" tab there is a new additional field titled "Text Msg Opt-In" that provides a quick scan view with filter ability to sort the roster by Yes/No status of who has opted into text messages in the roster:
    • 08f8ab88307d9e297fe2dee3bf2147e9-huge-sn
    • 8460e162b94b35b834613f13129ee364-huge-sn
  • 3. In the "Roster Contact Info" tab there is now the ability to click "edit" next to any individual contact's name and opt members out of text messages if requested (but not allow someone to opt a user in). This field is only editable if the requesting chapter member is already opted in and is requesting to be opted out. If a chapter member is not listed as opted in and wants to be opted in have them use CCL's Text Alert page to complete themselves. Note: Unfortunately CCL leaders can't manually update chapter members to opt-in for text messages as electronic consent is required to be provided due to SMS guidelines that require implicit electronic consent from the individual, not via a third party.
    • 1ebd8dc50019852108134f1ca754fa48-huge-sn
  • Action Tracker Updates. An Organization Name field was added to the Action Tracker in the meeting actions. Note fields were added to two additional Grassroots action types: Presentations and Tabling

  • IT's New Help Center. CCL Community has been updated to feature connections to the new ticketing support system that the IT Department has implemented with the new short URL cclusa.org/help on the Help page, Contact Us page, and other support pages.  If you are a volunteer in need of technical assistance, please submit a support request at cclusa.org/help.
  • @ Mentioning Expansion. CCL Community has increased the number of @ mention results from six to thirty to make it easier to find the correct member. Members without profile pictures now show a no-image profile image.

Bug Fixes

  • Main Navigation Bar. Fixed an issue where the main navigation bar was formatted incorrectly across browsers loading without the search bar or with the dropdown menu items being condensed.
  • Group File Page. Fixed an issue where group files were not displaying correctly to allow group members to add, edit, and delete folders in their files.
  • New Chapter Members Joining. Group Leaders and Chapter Admins who sign up to be notified of New Members when they join their group will no longer receive notifications for members joining that have opted out of email communications. 
  • Social Media Buttons. Fixed an issue where the hover text on Profile Pages for Twitter handles was incorrect.
  • Unread Messages. Fixed an issue where the unread messages counter was not displaying the correct number
