v3.1.66

New Features

- We have totally overhauled the submission process for talks/sponsors/exhibitors applications. This includes a complete restyling of the forms, a significant number of additional field options, and better reporting capabilities on the existing data. Additionally, submitters can choose one or more authors to be the speakers/presenting authors for the submission.

This allows for multiple people to be involved in the submission process, and for the submission to be presented by someone other than the submitting author. This is especially useful for submissions that are a collaboration between multiple people, or where the submitting author is not the presenting author.

User Facing Improvements

- Add date time handling to BCOM integration to allow faster sync of results

- Numerous improvements to internal workflows and forms, including better handling of specific email validations

- Fix a validation prompt when reviewing previous versions of submitted forms

- Enforce file uploads in registration custom fields with a better error message presented to users

- Fix a scenario where admins will see the livestreams start/end timings for the day, not the live stream

- Improve speed and performance of updating metadata models and workflow statuses in bulk

- Update a number of dependencies

- Migrate to new SSO proxy service in development

v3.1.60

New Features

We are so happy to introduce a complete refresh of the admin list views UI. Although the overall look and feel is the same, we have made a number of major improvements!

Users in any view will now be able to:

  • Sort columns
  • Show/hide columns
  • Generate custom reports (views) with custom filters and parameters
  • Save these custom views for later viewing, and;
  • Export these custom views to CSV and PDF

We are incredibly excited to bring this new feature to our users, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Thank you to all beta testers of this feature as we continue to improve our overall experience for you.

User Facing Improvements

- Removed email open and click tracking from the email reports as this functionality has been removed from the underlying service providing this functionality.

- Support emails and logos on error pages have been updated to be consistent with the rest of the platform.

- Bulk email sending has been moved to a background job to improve performance. Email sending should feel more responsive in the Platform and the email sending process won't take any longer to deliver.

- Update the check on the /agenda page to always show the current event date when an event is running. This prevents users from having to manually choose today's date when the page loads.

Internal Changes/Updates

- Update a number of dependencies for security fixes.

- Displaying polling results to the livestream page has been temporarily removed as we are working on improvements to the interface for users on small devices.
