  • 4 projects
  • 4 improvements
  • 34 fixes
  • 17 internal tasks


Clear Webforms Results

Extending content management powers to section managers. Now section managers can clear webform results to start a new round of data gathering without having to duplicate a webform.

Poll Content type to be section based

Extending content management powers to publishers, editors, and authors. Polls are now a content type so they can be easily edited by members of a section’s publishing team.

Accordion Function for WYSIWYG

Publishers can now create sections and snippets of content that can be displayed and hidden by the user. This makes content more interactive and easier to navigate, especially for text-heavy FAQs.
