Recently deployed updates

The following items have been deployed to the website and Walks Manager in March/April 2024.

  • NSD-420 Wellbeing Walks Sign-Up form: Users who were signed in to the website when they accessed the Sign up form for wellbeing walks were encountering erroneous password errors. Fixed 19th April 2024.
  • NSD-399 Duplicate button "Greyed Out": As of the 26th March 2024, this has been resolved for all users. Anyone that still struggles with greyed out duplicate button on their homepage should perform a hard reload by pressing "Ctrl and F5" together to restore your functionality going forward.
  • Ability to view the contact preference settings for each Walk Leader within a group: Users can now see what each walk leader in their group has consented to when creating a walk, so that it will be clear how the walk leader and contact details will appear. A report containing this information can also be found and downloaded from the "Manage Groups" page. See the Walks Manager guidance for more information.
  • NSD-347 Error messaging for CSV import headings does not match CSV file column headings
