Current Happenings

New Version

Our April release is out and ready for you to upgrade your community. As you know, we recommend that you keep your community up to date each month to keep it running smoothly and so you can enjoy the latest updates.

Review the release notes to see what is included in the April release, version 4.7.9.

Key changes:


@Charles and I talked about the release in our April Release Chat this past Tuesday.

You can watch the video and participate in that discussion in the converted live topic. 


On Deck

Our new Courses and Lessons application is coming along great. We hope to have a sneak peak ready next week. 🤞


Statistics and reporting improvements are nearing completion and we will talk about what is included in our upcoming Statistics and Reporting live topic event. 


Bounce Management is coming in May. For Cloud customers, we are adding the ability for you to view reports on bounced/complaint emails, take action on member accounts (purge them or mark them as no notifications), and unblock emails that our platform may be refusing to email.

Can I ask about Android devices? Is there currently anything by way of a mobile app or anything similar to what has been released here for Apple? 

Yes, and there has been for quite a while.

In Chrome, tap the 3-dot menu in the top-right of the browser and then 'Install' to add the PWA to the home screen.
