HOC 3 Release Notes - 3.0.28 (June 15, 2017)
This release includes improvements to the form used in the Advanced Registration System, improvements to the CMS, improvements to site templates, and a variety of bug fixes. Highlights are detailed below:
The text that appears on the team signup page (after you click on "sign up with a Team" or "Express Interest with a team" - has been updated to better describe the options for signing up with a team. It removes references to 'public teams' that are not part of HOC 3.0. Here is the new text:
For individually scheduled opportunities we do not display the start date but only the words "Voluneers needed through (end date)" This made sense, since the start date might be a long time ago and is no longer relevant.
However, in circumstances where the start date was in the future, volunteers were confused when they tried to sign up to get a message saying they couldn't sign up for today's date.
Now, when an Individually Scheduled Opportunity is not allowing singups until a future date, the start date and end date will both be displayed. For example. Today is June 15, but we are not accepting volunteers to schedule themselves before June 20th. So the opportunity will appear like this:
Users of template 3 found that the schedule was not easily readable, or in some cases even visible for Individually Scheduled Opportunities. This has been fixed.
When defining the URLs that a page or block is visible to, it turned out that the URLs were being treated as case sensitive. Now, when a URL is entered in the "Visible to" for "All pages, except URLs below" or "Only URLs listed below", the logic at execution is not case sensitive. The url /witness success and /WitnessSuccess will be treated as the same URL.
The date picker on the self-reporting page, was not using the date format for the appropriate international regions. The date picker will now pick dates in the appropriate format used in that country.
If visible in your sharing portal when creating volunteer opportunities, the field "Image" has added help text to explain to partners what the image they upload here may or may not be used for. Note: The image is only used if you are using a theme that has been enabled to use the "featured Opportunities" block. It clarifies that this image is only used when the system admin spotlights this opportunity as a 'featured opportunity'.
For those of you who have a customized theme using the featured opportunity block, its now possible to determine what items are or aren't displayed for each opportunity. You can now opt to not display images (in case you don't have images available for all your featured opportunities, and don't want to take up space with blank, placeholder images.
