Switching Off Release Management

SearchThis is a somewhat unusual blog post. Rather than announcing a new feature, this post explains how it is now possible to switch off some existing functionality. Since most organizations have not implemented Release Management, we have made it possible in 4me to hide this functionality. In fact, it is now hidden by default. To switch it on, an account administrator only needs give someone the Release Manager role of the account. As long as no one has the Release Manager role, the ‘Releases’ option of the Records console will not become visible.

In addition, change managers will not see the Release field that is part of the Change form.

As more functionality continues to be added, we felt that this was a small but helpful step to keep 4me’s interface clean and easy to use.
