          Bug Fixes

          Multi-Select Fields in Attendee Edit on Dashboard

          • We addressed a bug regarding multi-select and multi-checkbox fields being set as blank for the initial update in Dashboard if the attendee record was created from a public registration form.

          Layout Issue on Agenda Page with Global Chat

          • We corrected a layout issue that would occur when the global chat draw was opened where the agenda header was being pushed to the left.

          HTML Bug With Missing Quote In Select Placeholder

          • We corrected a missing quote in the placeholder option for select drop-downs in forms.

          Fixed a spacing issue on Dashboard login page

          • There was a UI bug on the login page where the words ‘Your Email’ and ‘Enter Password’ were partially covered by the icons.

          Conditional blocks that have duplicate fields were saved as blank

          • If a form had multiple conditional field blocks with the same fields in each box, the fields that were duplicated would get saved as blank. Now the fields will be saved only from the conditional block that is selected on the form.

          Exporting avatars

          • There was a bug where the avatar wouldn’t export from certain events.

          Fixed CAPTCHA on registration forms

          • We’ve fixed a bug that didn’t allow CAPTCHA to be added to registration forms.

          Added a maximum file size of 16MB to avatar images on registration forms

          • We’ve fixed a bug with registration forms where large avatar images would break a form.To ensure this doesn’t happen moving forward, we are reducing the maximum file limit from 50MB to 16MB.

          Added the ability to scroll through saved searches

          • Fixed a bug with events that had a lot of saved searches. The saved searches would continue to the end of the page and all saved searches would not be visible. We have added the ability to scroll through the list of saved searches now.

          Resolved an issue with global presence duration times

          • If an event had multiple sessions in a row on the main stage, presence reporting would show the attendee being on the main stage for the entire time and not break it up per session.
          • The report will now break the presence report up per session instead of per main stage, ensuring that we can accurately report on how long attendees were in each session.

            Notification panel will now close when users click anywhere on the page

            • The notification panel used to only close when clicking the notifications panel again. Now the panel will close when the user clicks away from the panel elsewhere on the page.

            Fixed an issue with cloning an registration form that has conditional field blocks

            • We have fixed a bug when the user cloned an event with registration forms that contained conditional field blocks. The conditional field blocks didn’t appear for the attendee until the blocks were moved around.

            Fixed logo sizes when using automatic emails

            • We fixed an issue that if logo images were too large, the image would get stretched and pixelated.

            Fixed add to calendar links

            • We fixed an issue where the calendar links wouldn’t populate with the entire URL. This bug happens if the event is using short codes in your event like /main-stage/1890 instead of eventname.co/main-stage/1890.
