COMING IN 2018

★ [Design Idea] Collaborator Notifications

Faculty often do not know when they are linked to a record. They also need the ability to approve or reject a link. Notifications would tell a user when a collaborator adds a record and links them to it, and that give the user the option to accept or reject the record. 

RECENTLY DELIVERED UPDATES
