Community Release - August 12, 2019
What's a release?Simply put, a release is a package of software updates consisting of new features and bug fixes that are ready to deploy. On CCL Community, we'll release updates every other week.
- Newest Members Block. On all groups' "Members" page the "Newest Members" block on the right-side now displays the city and state of the newest (up to) five members of the group along with their join date (see green boxes below). The Newest Members block previously displayed only the names of the members, so these additional details will make it easier for all group members and especially leaders see the most recent additions to your group and where they're coming from.
- Email Opt Out tab. When accessing the chapter roster's Email Opt Out tab, the user can now easily see the opt out date for their members' rows and compare other information without having to scroll across their roster.
- Fixed blurring and pixelation occurring with individual profile images. Higher resolution now displays fully, but the best height x width dimension for uploading is still 400 X 400.
