1. Profile Editing Restrictions and Permission

Why have we built it? We want to give organizers the ability to put restrictions on attendees editing their profile information, so that they can use their own database as a single source of truth

What are the changes?

Why have we built it? We want to make it easier to manage monetization plans through automation, whilst adding further control over monetization features

  • Monetization IDs will now be shown in the Grip Dashboard
  • The Disable User Upgrades feature allows you to disable the ability for Team Admins to upgrade plans on the Monetization Plans Overview page
