Released on November 27, 2018


This release represents a major update to our web app's user interface (UI) and user experience (UX). Whereas our version 1 web app focused on functionality, our version 2 focuses on improving the user experience on devices of all sizes. The app now scales smoothly between 30" desktop monitors and 3" mobile phones, and all sizes in between. Version 2 also simplifies the common workflow tasks in planning events, described below in more detail.
