Improvements & New Features: Participants 👯

1. Reschedule Meeting From My Schedule

What is it? We wanted to make rescheduling meetings more seamless for our users, so we added the "Reschedule" button to the "My Schedule" Page. Events Participants can now reschedule meetings directly from their "My Schedule" page allowing meeting management to become easier and faster.

2. Improved CSV Uploader [postponed release]

What is it about?  We improved the CSV Uploader to be more powerful and useful to Grip users so that they can make changes more seamlessly.

The CSV Uploader now allows you to:

  • Import image URLs
  • Edit existing profiles via patching
  • Any uploaded metadata to be automatically translated
  • New drop-down option "Add new profiles and patch existing profile data."
  • This option will add new profiles and patch any fields that are on existing profiles

Why are we adding it? We want to make the CSV uploader more powerful and more useful to Grip users so they can more easily upload profiles to their events

Available to: All users, manually enabled.
