We may have gotten distracted by all of the fireworks and our June release quickly became a July release! Like the fireworks we all enjoyed this past weekend, Woven has a few spectacular things to show you all in this release. The improvements in the release will be available on Tuesday, July 7, 2020.
We completed our Phase 1 - June release items in support of the upcoming Shift Scheduling feature. A breakdown of high-level timeline can be found in last month's release notes.
We are taking a small detour from this timeline in July to make several highly requested improvements to Direct and Group Chat Messaging.

The Location Audit feature in Woven received numerous customer-requested improvements:

Team members can now submit partial-day time-off requests. This update is especially handy for those wanting to request off for just an hour or two for an appointment without missing out on the rest of the day.
Additionally, managers with the appropriate permission now have the ability to withdraw time-off requests on behalf of Team Members in case they submitted by mistake.
Prior to this release, the default notification frequency for all users of Woven was "Immediate;" however, users had the option to change that to "Hourly" or "Daily." After this release, "Hourly" will be the default frequency and users will still have the ability to change it.
If you already changed your preferences away from the default value, those preferences will remain unchanged.
In addition to the above major items, we made over a dozen minor improvements to various parts of Woven. Here is a quick list of the more notable items:
