From within the user profile, administrators can now merge user profiles.

Filter date fields by 'month'
Date filters will now allow administrators to filter by month instead of a specific date. This will apply to all date filters including event, shift and user fields. 

For example, this filter could show all users born in a specific month, so that birthday emails can be sent. 

Ability to create Shift Templates

Shift Templates are now able to be created and can be used when creating shifts, including when creating ‘quick shifts’ from the user update page.

Shift templates will pre-fill any values that have been set in the template. Administrators can choose whether the value can be changed when creating shifts.
