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

  • Welcome Home Banner. This new banner spans across your home dashboard page with your name and a clear link to your local group at the very top of the page along with your three highest accomplishment badges with a link to the badge glossary page to find out more about what other badges CCL provides.  You'll note that your groups, bookmarks and Action Tracker link are all still prominently located at the top of your page shifted to the right side.
  •  Main Actions Block. To help keep our monthly actions front and center for all of our volunteer network we added this block to help surface the CCL's monthly actions and national goals/campaigns that we are currently working on. Scroll through the pages to see all of the options available to you and your chapter and click any respective button link to be taken to the action that best suits your interests. We believe that this design will help activate our new volunteers and get them involved right from the beginning of their experience with CCL by providing clear immediate actions, helping them feel empowered and connected to our shared national climate work.
  • News & Updates Block.  This block combines the best of the former three areas of the main home dashboard page (Top News Block, Blue Action Bar Block and CCL Community Bulletin Block) all in one area so that you can find what you're looking for and stay current with CCL related news in one place-- whether it be our weekly briefing, monthly speaker plans, recent content shared on social media or other important updates. Click the "More News & Updates" link to be taken to our CCL Community Bulletin archive for older news after it cycles out of this main page.
  • Action Tracker update allowing state and regional coordinators to view individual actions across their state or region and the ability for coordinators to filter the results by state, chapter, participant, and action type (including calls, letters/emails, etc.).

Bug Fixes

  • Video Additions. Fixed an issue where a thumbnail error was triggered while adding a photo video to one's group page.
  • Chapter Email Issue Addressed.  Fixed an issue where the chapter message was intermittently timing out when being sent.
