Feature Spotlight

Revamped Tracks UI [Improvement] [Tracks]: Hasta la vista Snippets. Maintainers are now able to include content from the Catalog directly in their track, including articles, videos, event types, and courses so that they can build a richer blended experience. A new Track Summary page will help bring context to the track so that their audience knows what each of their tracks is about. We're building an intuitive creation/editing experience, easy, and consistent with other content types so that maintainers are encouraged to expand their use of tracks on the platform. End-users will also have an improved experience consuming these tracks. No longer will users scroll through content. Tracks will now have a paginated UI that will focus users on the task at hand. Complete buttons will now be front and center so users can more easily confirm they have completed their tasks. Talk to your PlusPlus Customer Success Manager if you're interested in activating it or viewing a demo.

Special Attention

Removal of Additional Locations [Deprecation Warning] [Platform]: We launched Is Friendly To My Time event filter on March 23 to make it easier for the end-users to discover online events that better fit into their time-zone-aware schedule, regardless of their physical location. Similarly, we're launching in the upcoming week the same filter for Mentorship sessions. With that in place, we find little value in having the organizers and hosts manually curate the list of additional locations where their events/sessions show up in. As a result, we will be deprecating the Additional Locations feature on September 28. If you have any concerns/suggestions, please reach out to your admin or your PlusPlus Customer Success Manager.
