HOC 3 Release Notes 188.8.131.52 (August 9, 2018)
This release has the usual under-the-hood improvements to performance, along with some simple but welcome improvements to the user experience on the public site and in the sharing portal.
When expressing interest for multiple connections to an ISO with schedule on the public site, the user first enters the days of the week and times they wish to volunteer - and then the Start Date / End Date of the recurrence.
Previously, the Start Date and End Date fields were pre-populated with Today's Date (as the start), and the Occurrence End Date (as the end) and people often submitted the form not realizing they were using these broad, pre-populated dates. Additionally troubling was, that if the opportunity didn't actually start allowing signups until a later date -- entering today's date.
To make sure that volunteers actually CHOOSE which dates they'd like to start and end - these fields are now left blank, requiring the user to fill them in in order to submit the form. (today's date appears as a formatting tip in both the start date and end date)
Sometimes, when a team captain is signing his team up for an opportunity, they might click the 'all' button and selert all the team members, and be unaware of just how many team members they are actually signing up. To alert the team captain of exactly how many team members they are signing up, a new confirmation screen is presented to have the captain confirm exactly how many team members they are registering for the opportunity.
During registration, if a user clicked on the pop-up that explained the age requirements for registering on the site - the pop-up would not go away unless you refreshed the page. This has been fixed.
