Digication Development Update -- 2/27/2023

Dear Digication Community,

In keeping with our commitment to providing a minimum of two weeks' notice of any changes to our user interface (UI), we wanted to let you know about improvements that will occur during the week of March 13, 2023. No system downtime will occur when these improvements are implemented. We have also included a list of other improvements and bug fixes implemented.

Organizer Tool

In order to be more consistent with our naming conversion, the “ePortfolio Organizer” will be renamed the “Organizer Tool” (1, 2).

Template settings heading change

To provide more clarity, the “Template default settings” heading under “Template settings” will change to “Recommended sharing settings for users of this template” (1, 2).
