Don't miss the exciting new User Interface (UI) for the Platform that comes as part of this release! For a sneak peak, watch the preview video below!
*Important* If you have previously bookmarked your Platform URL including the "/login/logon/" (e.g. https://mp.mychurch.org/ministryplatform/login/logon) in your browser of choice, you will need to update your bookmark to simply be your Platform URL (e.g. https://mp.mychurch.org/ministryplatform/) without any text after "...platform/".

Security, Authorization, Record Security
Fixed an issue where updating the reporting service timeout value would not take immediate effect.
Fixed an issue where clicking About > Refresh button would not invalidate the user's cache thus seeing changes required logging out and back in.
