Every two weeks, we release updates to our community platform; today’s release is Platform 5.18.0. As we continue to release updates to the platform, we’ll also release a blog post here to help walk you through the new features of Platform 5.18.0.
Our Newsletter feature in Analyze now offers bounce rate and complains. We are also updating the texts to of the feature for clarity. The feature allows for a view of which members received, opened, bounced, or received a complaint for a given Newsletter if Email Insights are turned On. Review our article on Newsletter Insights for instructions.
We have updated the forms and elements of a number of Modules. These changes pose a design risk to platforms with custom CSS as the code for the below sections have changed. If your platform is at risk for a design change, be sure to reach-out to email@example.com to inform our team.

Drawing Tool Removal
We offer an Adobe Drawing Tool that is going to be removed by Adobe in the coming months. In anticipation for the end of this integration, we are removing the Drawing Tool from the platform in early November to prevent any issues for your platform. If you use the drawing tool, it is best to turn it off or reach-out to us for more details.
