2019-06-11: Project Status and Roadmap Page Added
Added this page to let users know about recent changes and planned features.
2019-06-07: Home Page Update
Cruises listed on the site home page are now cached on the server. A new column was added with a quick "heads up" status showing what has been recently changed on the cruise plan.
2019-05-22: Cruise Registration Status
There was a recurring problem where scientists were not completing the entire registration process after initially joining the cruise. A new registration status box is diplayed prominently at the top of the page alerting scientists that they have more steps to complete. This is also designed to prompt scientists to add photos/attachments and hazmat or explicitly state that they do not intend to do so.
