Applicants will now receive an automated email when saving a submission as a draft for the first time (#2948)

Bug Fixes:
Add js validation for acceptable file types for all uploads (#2951). This fix addresses several issues:

  1. The third-party library Hypha has been using for the upload button (django-file-form) was buggy. Developers replaced the code with an updated library.
  2. When a user uploads an invalid file type like a jpg, the platform rejects it and prevents the application from being submitted. Developers added a patch to include a javascript validation. This means the platform will not accept certain files like a jpg, but the application could still be submitted.
  3. The file type could now be displayed. The font is black for acceptable files, but red for unacceptable ones. An error message will appear.

This release also fixes duplicate comments in in-app feed (#2950). When a user submits a comment, the comment will be reflected on the in-app notification. When the comment was edited, this triggered several notifications associated with those edits. The fix means that each comment will be associated with a single alert regardless of how many edits were made within this comment.

We had an in-depth conversation about the ‘Community Review’ workflow
How is it currently used in practice?
This workflow is often used in participatory grantmaking
Workflow allows any external individuals (ie applicants) to evaluate applications while other workflows limit it to the reviewer user group

Any Other Business or ‘Proposals ongoing’

Unfortunately couldn’t make it for the meeting but I’m loving the look of the new documentation!

Thank you for taking the time to meet with our tech document writer. Here is new documentation hot off the presses Configuration - Hypha docs
