- Guided opportunity creation – now community admins can follow an easy to use opportunity creation process to create new opportunities for their communities.
- More prominent community header – This is now in a clearer layout with a more prominent placement for the logo of the Not-For-Profit organisation.
- Platform files are now only accessible in a session for the users who log in. This means the direct URL of platform files will expire after 5 minutes, reducing the possibility of unauthorised file access.
- The terminology of “projects” is now changed to “opportunities”. In the future, projects will be considered “project-based opportunities”, which allows for other types of opportunities such as role-based opportunities and event-based opportunities.

- Direct message notification email – immediate
- Project update notification email – daily
- Discussions notification email – daily
- Community notification email – weekly
