Quick update for call admins: Now, when you go to activate your call you have the option to activate optional modules too!
Previously, a call had to be activated first and then each optional module (Advanced Scheduling, Publishing, Custom Submission Receipt, etc.) would have to be activated individually. With this update, you can now choose which, if any, optional modules you want to include with the initial activation.
You can still activate optional modules individually like you could before; This just gives you the added convenience of including them with the initial activation.
I’m excited to announce the initial release of multilingual support in ProposalSpace!
So far the effort has centered on a handful of pages—sign-in, sign-up, the Dashboard, and the Review Module—in French and Spanish, but that’s just the start. Soon, call admins will also be able to manage call settings—including forms—in multiple languages.

We’ve made a slight change to the way messages are sent with the Messaging Module.
Previously the module always sent one copy per user per proposal. Unfortunately that could be confusing if an individual had more than one proposal because someone could receive multiple copies of the same message and not understand why.
The module continues to send one copy per user per proposal, but only if the message contains proposal-specific merge fields, like the proposal ID or title. That way, if someone receives multiple copies it should be clear which proposal each copy is for. If, however, the message does not contain proposal-specific merge fields, then the module sends just one copy per user, regardless of how many proposals that user is associated with.

Normally in ProposalSpace calls are automatically archived by the system one year after activation. But things aren’t exactly normal right now, so we’ve decided to extend that period for a year.
The extension applies to calls activated January 1, 2019 through April 30, 2020 with a submission deadline on or after January 1, 2020.

Call admins can now select specific questions to use for session titles, role-user names, and role-user organizations in the Publishing Module.
Previously the system made its best guess which questions to use. (Basically it used the first question in the main submission form for the session’s title, the first question in each role form for an individual’s name, and the second question in each role form for that individual’s organization.)

Have you ever wanted to organize your call’s proposals using your own taxonomy? Well now you can, with labels!
Call admins can now create and apply custom labels to any proposal. They’re completely under your control. You decide what to call them and which proposals to assign them to. You can then use them to find proposals according to the labels they’ve been assigned.
And the best part? They’re included as a core module at no additional cost and with every call, new or existing!
