  • File Info Page
    • There is a new project tab on the right panel called 'Project' which will show up if a file is a project file and show read only information about the project it is part of, including the project keywords and project hero image as banner. Clicking on the project banner in the tab will take you to the project page for that project. There is also a toggle to set hero image if the image being viewed is not the current hero image for the project.

  • Brand new employee > file linker tool which can be run on one or more employees from the new Employees List page. This tool allows very fast employee headshot attachments by automatically showing potential attachment files based on the employee's name. This search can be modified to better find employee files if needed
