In this release, we also:

  • Fixed an issue in Domain settings where making a change in a subdomain would sometimes also save the parent domain menuentry settings, even though the subdomain had not edited the menuentry.
  • Updated the hide/show button’s hover tooltip in the Change password dialog to correctly indicate what happens when you click the hide/show button.
  • Improved the Badge editor by disabling the Done button until the entry form is error-free
  • Fixed an issue in Domain settings where clicking on badges or landing-content entries defined by an parent domain did nothing; it now reports a message indicating why the field is not editable.
  • Resolved an issue with correctly scrolling the current activity into view in Editor > Group settings
  • Resolve an issue with viewing folder activities in Editor > Group settings when filtered by a Grading period that was not the current Grading period
  • Fixed a typo in the Minimum-allowed password strength validation error message. 
  • Updated the Activities > Objectives descriptions to display full description of the objective on the card, instead of using truncated versions and hover tooltips


Updates in version 2022.9.15.841.
