Thank you so much for taking the time to write that nice note. The entire team has seen it. What a way to make us feel good on a Friday!

We are now working on allowing multiple editors. Watch for updates soon.

Hi, thanks for the updates! Is it possible to make phone numbers a clickable hyperlink in the mobile browser version of the directory, too?

May 27, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterCorey

Hi Corey!

Currently, the phone numbers are expected not to be clickable, however depending on the browser you use, they can show clickable. (Chrome and Safari do not). This is on our roadmap, but truthfully not very high up as majority of our users are viewing the online directory on their computer, so we don't have as many requests for this. Thank you for posting out!

Can second editors not approve photos? We added another editor and the main reason was so they could help with photo submissions, are we missing something?

Hi Lean!

Yes, other editors should be able to approve photos, however, it appears there's a bug in that feature. Our team is working on getting it fixed! Thank you for posting out:)
