  • You can now download your list of members with the  events they rsvp'ed to.
  • We fixed the "Download" button in  the "Event" part next to the "Duplicate" button and fixed a bug in the  event approval notification. 
  • We created shortened URL links for events, forms and documents (ex: http://cglink.me/r127995). These links will help you cut and paste shorter links into your  emails.

  • Coming up:   
    • The Waiting List feature will be reactivated on Friday Jan 25th for all schools.
    • We will push an improved attendance listings.

2) People Page:
  • The "Loading more people" message is now easier to read, it doesn't move when you scroll the page. 
  • We added a mouse-over popup on the People page with counters (i.e. Number of groups, RSVPs, posts and photos) and bio.
  • Bug fix: the Javascript loading People pictures does not run anymore when the user leaves the page.
  • Once the popup has loaded data for one person, we cache this data so  that the popup quickly displays data on second visit. Also, the Bio in  the popup is now truncated to 85 characters instead of 110 in order to  fit on two lines.

3) Forms:           
  • Users can now access member profiles from the survey/form answers page.
  • We added a new My Form page, with all submitted forms and the ability to edit Form submissions (when it is allowed). 
  • We have developed 90% of the new Form builder, soon to be released  (see attached preview). Among other new capabilities, the builder will  include improved Pages and Logic functions.

4) Groups:           
  • When non-admin users wish to create a new group, they are  now asked to contact a School Administrator. 
  • In the Control Panel  school administrators can now prevent a group from being displayed on the  "Groups" page by checking the "Hide" checkbox. Unlike with the  "Published" option, events of the group will be displayed on the  "Calendar" page. You will find this new feature on the Groups Listing on  the Control Panel for your school.
  • School Administrators now have the ability to  classify groups by tag.
  • You can now set a default Group Type to  be displayed upon landing on the "Groups" page (click on the "Groups"  menu on top). Otherwise, all groups will be displayed by default under  "All".

5) Media:           
  • You can now switch between Photos and Docs using a  radio-button instead of a dropdown. 
  • We fixed some small bugs  on the photo slider.
  • When the user selects the area of a picture  to crop, the final cropped image matches precisely the user's selection  (this used to not be the case).
  • We improved the confirmation  messages around image cropping. When you crop an image, a "Cropping  image, please wait..." message shows up. This used to create confusions.

6) Feed:
  • We made general design improvements, fixed  the alignment of boxes in the feed, reduced the size of the avatars next  to the comment boxes and added a comment box by default on each post. 
  • We are now working on a feed design update for which we will soon have mock ups.

7) Profile:
  • We improved the design of the My Inbox, My Groups, My Events and My Payments pages. 
  • We moved the Resume box to the bottom of the Profile page in preparation for new Resume popup. 
  • We have been working on a new, clean My Profile page. Mock ups will soon be available.


8) Navigation:
  • We fixed the width of the Manage menu, as well as irregular padding and margin between buttons.
  • We continued to add more "Red" counters in many of the links in the  left menu and in the iPhone App. These counters let you know when  something is new since the last time you visited a page/section. 
  • The left menu as been improved, the code has been simplified and there  is a slideUp/slideDown effect instead of a fade effect when displaying  sub-menus.
  • We made the Switch Group dropdown larger and easier to select a group. 
  • We have been working on a new left navigation design for which mock ups will soon be available.

9) Website:
  • We fixed an issue on Websites whereby the content of some widgets would not be displayed and required to refresh the page. 
  • Updates to the "Topbar", "Header" and "Sidebar" are saved properly.
  • We fixed a display issue, that was preventing the side column of a website to be positioned properly.

10) Tags: 
  • We fixed the display of the Student Documents on the "My Tags" page.

11) General:
  • We added Audit Tracking on "Delete" actions. 
  • We  improved our White Labeling and domain name configuration process. It is  now easier and faster to replace the CampusGroups.com domain with your  own domain.
