  • Photo columns now appear correctly in Exports with the ‘Include user profile data’ option enabled



  • For the WebStorm search bar, inputting an idea code for an existing idea and then pressing ENTER will direct you straight to the idea view

  • Idea comment edits will now send email and in-product notifications to users who submitted, are subscribed to, commented on, or voted for the idea

  • Fixed an issue with incorrect user count previews for the User Import feature

  • Fixed an issue in which removing tags from WebStorm Admin would not be reflected in the idea
  • Fixed an issue in which sorting by Idea Code required a capital ‘D’


  • Fixed an issue in which information tooltips for scorecards were duplicated between different scorecard questions
  • Fixed an issue in which assigning large numbers of scorecards would create duplicate action items
