We have another exciting round of updates to share! These are on their way to you next week, and most will be live in all regions by the end of the day on Friday, March 4, 2022.
- We've improved the user creation process, so you can now assign regular level user permissions when creating an account, and control more user assignments during the creation process.
- We've also added an option when creating a user to not send the "Welcome to LibCal" welcome message, if desired.
- We’re introducing new regular level user permissions, to help control whether regular level account holders can do things like: edit and cancel appointment booking info they haven't created, edit and cancel space bookings they haven’t created, and access space booking forms.

- When replying to tickets, admins can now choose which of the 3 message tabs (Reply/Internal Note/Transfer) load by default on first page load.
- If a ticket reply has failed to send, the ticket will be reopened with an error tag, and a note will be added in the ticket answer page to indicate that an error occurred.
- We've moved the Ticket Action Log to a modal window, to help reduce the amount of vertical scrolling required when answering a ticket.
- Quality of Service: There is now a setting to limit the number of surveys sent to each user.
