*NEW* Release Notes


Context

Introducing a streamlined approach to stay abreast of MentorCity platform developments, administrators can now conveniently access release notes directly within the virtual mentoring platform. This feature has been available since December 11th, offering crucial insights into updates and enhancements.

Definition: Release notes are information that accompany software releases or updates, providing a detailed summary of the changes, enhancements, bug fixes, and new features introduced in that particular version. They serve as a communication tool between the developers or company releasing the software and the users or administrators who will be implementing the update. 

Key points:

It's important to mention that Mentor Canada will continue to communicate impactful platform changes directly to administrators. However, administrators can now conveniently reference low-impact and minor updates through the release notes in their notification center, promoting a more efficient and informed administrative experience.
