ProposalSpace users can now receive email notifications whenever there’s an update to the site.
For years, details about site updates—mostly related to new features—have been posted to the Product Blog. But the only way to know about the posts was to visit the blog periodically. Now, users can sign up to receive an email whenever a post related to site updates is published.
If you are reading this in an email, then good news—you are already signed up! (BTW, this is the first email you should have received, so don’t worry if you haven’t been getting them.)

For example, let’s say you want to return a submission, but you only want the author to edit the abstract and nothing else. Previously, they could edit any part of the proposal. Now, you can prohibit them from editing anything but the abstract.
