Bug fixes

We have resolved the following bugs and issues in this release:

  • We fixed an issue where the URLs in SMS were modified when they were delivered. We edited the code so URLs included in SMS would remain intact upon delivery.
  • We included Reach to the list of Advanced option settings in Messages. We identified this and removed Reach from the Advanced option settings in Messages.
  • URLs added to the website alerts were unresponsive when visitors clicked them on the website. We've fixed this issue so these URLs are accessible.
  • The phone number of whoever submitted a tip to the school admins via SMS and calls were included in the tip report email when their identity should have been anonymous. We've fixed this issue by removing the phone number in the report to maintain anonymity.
  • We fixed an issue where the organisation names with an ampersand or apostrophe showed as code before saving.
  • We fixed an issue with the character count being inaccurate when copying email content to SMS.
  • We fixed an issue where users couldn't add content to App Resources.
  • When users edit a saved message with an audio attachment, we'd show a prompt to replace the audio attachment or continue with it.
  • We fixed an issue where apostrophes in account names showed up as code.
  • We fixed a broken image in the charts in the Message utilisation report.
