October 2020: Features and Updates

 🎃The updates we made in October of 2020: An exciting new content type, additional customization options, and more!

  • For exceptional experiences: ICYMI, we released a brand new content type in October - Experiences! You can learn all about it in the DIY section of the October Mid Month Memo! Or, you can go straight to the knowledge base articles here:
  • For engaging events: For events with internal RSVP (ie, people are RSVPing on uConnect), you now can easily control whether or not you display the number of people who have RSVP'd to a particular event. To turn the RSVP counter on our off, navigate from your dashboard to Publish > Events and select to edit the event you'd like to adjust. Scroll down to 'RSVP Options'. If the event is marked as 'Internal' you will now see the options to 'Show Attendee List' (Yes or No), and Send Reminder (Yes or No). Once you make your updates, don't forget to hit 'Save'!
  • For custom classes: if you have a Classes widget anywhere on your platform, there's now the option to customize the 'View All Classes' button - both what it says and where it brings users to when they click. To customize this button, just reach out to and we will make an update for you right away!
  • For login locking: While it is our recommendation that your platform remains open-access so that prospective students, alums, employer partners, and other community members without university credentials can view all of the great career development content your office provides, you do now have the option to put some content types behind authentication.

🐛If you noticed that guest blogs or external blogs were being attributed to staff members on staff profile pages, that was a bug that has been fixed!

🐛Virtual events pulled from Handshake are now labeled as 'virtual' instead of 'unknown' for location 

🐛If you have an integration with the Vault and set up mapping between Vault tags and uConnect tags, you may have noticed Vault guides already in uConnect weren't getting updated with the correct tags. This is now fixed! 

🐛If you have an integration with Graduway: We fixed a bug that was causing duplicate mentor profiles to be created in some cases. 

🐛If you have an integration with CampusLabs Engage: We fixed a bug that was clearing existing Organization tags
