April 2017 Features and Updates

We've worked on some great features and updates this month. Check out highlights for April!

April Highlights:

* Add international employer addresses for companies outside of the US

* Embed Gravity Forms into blog posts instead of only pages

* Organize your resources using Quick Links grid


  • For the globetrotter - International locations are now available in the dropdown for company location.Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 8.11.15 PM.png

  • For the data collector-  Gravity Forms can now be embedded into blog posts as well as pages for greater flexibility. 
  • For the cataloguer - Tags management permissions have been changed to only allow users with Admin privileges to manage tags and categories.
  • For the label lovers - Tagging is so important that a warning message now will appear as a reminder if not enough tags are selected when a post is being published.
  • For the minimalists - Now there's the option of adding a Quick Links grid to the header, next to Log in, as a way to efficiently display resources. Ask us about adding this streamlined, space saving layout on your site!

  • Twitter images: Posts shared on Twitter weren't including the featured image, so we updated some required meta tags which allow posts shared on Twitter to appear in a card format with a large featured image.
  • Gravity Forms reCAPTCHAWe updated the API keys which fixes the errors that were being caused when using Gravity Forms reCAPTCHA when verifying that the user is a human rather than a computer.
  • Email analytics exportWe have optimized the export to function more effectively when handling a larger volume of email campaigns.
  •  Class year tagsClass year tags have been adjusted so that they work properly regarding email alerts for non-students, now ensuring that they receive the posts with class year tags when those posts also targeted for alumni.
  • Jobs search tool was not returning correct results after the recent Employer upgrade has now been adjusted so that the results are relevant.
  • Guest option for employer profiles and jobs - Employer profile and job posting options will no longer appear in Employer accounts profile if guest options have been disabled for employers. 
  • Looksharp blogs - since Looksharp has stopped posting new content, we've removed the Looksharp tab from the Posts page, but have left any existing published posts from Looksharp displaying the correct attribution.
  • Smaller screens and tablets - both of these will now benefit from enhanced formatting for better navigation of dropdown menus.
  • Performance improvement - after the recent Employer upgrade, we noticed a downtick in server performance, so we've made some enhancements to bring the performance back to it's peak.
