Platform Release 2.2.0 & 2.2.1

Oh hello there!

Its been a while, hasn’t it? How have you been? Yeah, wow! We’ve been pretty busy here. Now I know I’ve missed the last release notes, we’ve been busy like I said! But finally, they’re here now so lets take a gander together! Here is platform release 2.2.0 & 2.2.1

The Highlights

You wanted them, we got them. Events are now live on platform,  with Google Maps integration and the ability to add to the calendar of your choice! As a volunteer you can explore Events on the Explore page and can even share these events with non-Communiteer users for them to view. 

Editing, editing all around! Vastly improved the edit functions for Community Admins. It really was unreasonable for us to expect everyone to get everything perfect the first time around.

Quality Of Life Improvements. These range from error messages to no results found messages on search. These should make it clear that Inigo Montoya isn’t on platform, rather than the platform is just loading.

Bug fixes! Mostly rather small ones, ranging from sort not working on a few pages to edge case overlays not popping up.
