Release Notes | November 16, 2020

In this sprint we focused mainly on finding and fixing different bugs happening on our sites as well as bolstering a few of our features, such as the Control Panel and RTS! 

Control Panel Updates

  • With the new updates on the Control Panel's search bar for site selection, we realized that URLs were case sensitive, making them difficult to search and that some sites were unable to be found using the search function. Both of these issues have been resolved.
