  • A user is automatically redirected to the sign-in page when the user's session times-out resulting in reduced confusion.

  • Search results can now be printed in an user-friendly format for all searches as well as exported to a spreadsheet.
  • Date formats are now consistent throughout the application (in the D MMM YYYY format).
  • The label "ext" is now added to phone number fields which contain an extension.
  • The order in which contact information appears on summary screens is now standardized (alphabetically).
  • In Advanced Search when searching by location (country) a user now has the option of using the location specified in the organization's address country field, or by the official primary location stored for the organization.
