The November release included the following changes to the platform:

  1. Improvements in the Manager Interface
    • Improved post creation workflows across all modules, by making it clearer what is required or optional - this makes it faster for you to create content
    • Improved the list search UI - this makes it easier for you to find existing content
    • We removed a number of small features that were not being used by any clients, and that were complicating the system
    • Simplified process for creating delivery options in the shop
    • Improved the custom code editing formats (not FF)

  2. We've started testing an option to ask supporters to 'cover your processing costs' in the donation flow. We're looking to see if this significantly increases donation amounts, without reducing donation conversion.  If you'd like to be part of our trial, please contact the help team
