2. Moving create Type to Special Actions

Types are going to be created at app level in order to remove duplication of Types being created. We have not built the ability to do this yet, but need to remove the Type Settings page, so this will temporarily sit on this page.

3. Add Join & Join_and_patch to CSV uploads

This allows us to define how a user uploads profiles using the CSV uploader. They can choose whether to add replace all data or simply add a profile to the event. Users were filling in large spreadsheets with all metadata using 'join', so all of the created data was not being used

Improvements & New Features : Data 🔢

1. Add date stamp in the stream views list on the dashboard for session opened and closed

Improvements & New Features : Mobile 📱

1. Event-scoped notifications screen

This initiative is about limiting the scope of the Notifications screen to a single event rather than displaying a list of notifications for an entire app. This change aims to eliminate several usability issues:Mobile users could see all their past or outdated notifications (e.g. from an event that they attended a year ago or from an event that was deactivated) and organisers were unable to hide these notifications from usersMobile users had no way of knowing which notification belongs to which event when looking at the notifications screen.

Available to: Everyone

Release type: All new app builds from 20th July; existing apps updated gradually or on request
