Presence Version 2020.4 Released 

Version 2020.4 of our Presence Content Management System (CMS) has been released. This release includes a small update to the Rich Text Editor, a change to how users are authorized to create Emergency Alerts, as well as a number of accessibility improvements and minor enhancements. 

Telerik Rich Text Editor Update

The Telerik Rich Text Editor, used when editing portlets in Presence, has been updated to 2020.2.512 release.  This update includes a number of minor fixes and enhancements to the editor.

Change in Authorizing Users to Create Emergency Alerts

Previously you could authorize users to create emergency alerts on your district or standalone site by going to the System Administration page and clicking on Manage Authorization for Publishing under External Broadcast Settings. This has been replaced by a new module called Manage Authorization of Roles. It is found under the General Administration section of the System Administration page. 

The actual process for authorizing users is the same on the new module. 

Manage Authorization of Roles is under the General Administration section

Accessibility Improvements

A number of accessibility fixes and improvements have been included in the release. These changes assist those using various accessibility tools when accessing your site. The changes are primarily focused on enhancements for mobile navigation, and the Photo Gallery and Staff Directory portlets.
