Release Notes

1.11.4.4

Released June 1, 2020

Small improvements and bug fixes.

For Users

Improved
  • When creating your account for the first time on desktop, the Terms of Use screen looks much better. Snuggle up with a cuppa for some page-turning reading.
  • From the My Account screen, you can now tap on your active campaign to navigate to it in addition to tapping the Back button in the header. Plus, this nav action now has a nice animation.
Fixed
  • Action cards featuring banner images with white near the edges will now look better because our action card border will border the image too.
  • The animation from your full-screen actions cards back to the feed view is smoother. Like buddah’.
  • The progress animation in buttons wasn’t aligned quite right.
  • Loading individual people’s profiles should be faster.

For Admins

Fixed
  • There was a bug since the last release on Friday where you couldn’t save new integration instances. All fixed!
  • You no longer need to specify a people source when creating a Slack integration.

Released May 29, 2020

Bug fixes for invite links

For Users

Fixed
  • Invite links would sometimes not work on the first attempt for a brand new user creating an account.
  • Successfully joining via invite links would sometimes lead to way too many green success notifications. So much success it would make your head spin. You’d get sick of all the success. Now they should be chilled out.

For Admin

New
  • When setting up an integration, you will now specify which set of people (voters vs. Reach Adds) it should process. Should lead to more effective VAN integrations.

1.11.4

Released May 21, 2020

Feast your eyes and fingers on the all new design for the Home Screen and Action Cards making them better and more action-y than ever! Now, every card can be expanded into a full-screen view with a beautiful animation, each card can have a customized Call to Action button which appears in the feed and the Details view, cards can have Banner Images, and users can see when cards are pinned to the top and when each card was published.

Improved
  • The Contact Actions sub-header on the Person Profile screen is now smoother and more reliable.

  • Shadows look better and more consistent throughout the whole app.
  • On the Person Profile screen, the Add User button is easier to tap now.
  • In Chat, the Message Read indicators no longer will say “and 0 more”. That was silly.
Fixed
  • When joining a new campaign by invite code or invite link, you may have seen a red error notification even when it worked great. Sorry for the false alarm.
  • Sometimes My History was appearing empty for users who had canvassed a LOT of voters. Awesome work on that Reaching. It should now show you your 50 most recent interactions. Coming soon, you’ll be able to page through more.
  • On Web, after selection a contact script, it was possible for scrolling to stop working correctly for a bit. All fixed.
  • Sometimes, Reach was confused about your device’s push notification settings. It’s seeing more clearly now.

  • When deciding to trigger a contact action without using a contact script, Reach will no longer deselect your script and look confused.
  • When adding a user from the Person Profile screen, toggling the SMS switch was re-drawing the page. Yuck.

For Admins

Fixed
  • When adding users from Admin you were previously not able to specify their role. That is now fixed.
  • Fixed a typo in Notifications admin.
  • When uploading images to Reach, certain advanced options like Image Search and importing images from social media weren’t working perfectly. They should be all better.

More ways to contact voters and spread the word!

For Admins

Dear admins,

As much as we love hearing from you with support requests to set up and manage your integrations, we’re afraid all good things must come to an end.

Love,
Reach

For Users
