Now Sending New Photo Upload Notifications to Subscribers (24/4/2018)
Updated the project level Photos tool so that end users subscribed to the tool will receive email notifications. The system will check for new photo uploads every hour and if the user is subscribed to receive updates about new photos, they will receive an email notification with the subject line, "New photos have been uploaded to [Project Name]." Users can unsubscribe to no longer receive push notifications. If a photo is marked 'Private', only subscribers with 'Admin' level permission to the photos tool will be notified. The system sends only one (1) notification per project.
Improved Uploading Experience for Photos Tool (30/1/2018)
Redesigned the Photos tool upload window to allow the user to upload a photo, select a trade, choose the album to upload into and attach a location all at once- streamlining the upload experience for users.
