Crowd 5.0 Release Notes
Bring some HTML to your email notifications
You can now enable HTML rendering for email notifications coming from Crowd. Add some tags, images and icons, maybe a bit of color, and make the emails look more professional and dripping with your company’s style.
You can configure your email templates and enable HTML rendering by going to Administration > Mail template. Learn more about email notifications
Keep users up to date right from the start
You can now inform your users about important changes by adding an announcement banner on the login page. We hope it will help you avoid sending emails or running around the office, and your users will get all the info they need when they start they work.
You can configure the announcement banner by going to Administration > Look and feel. Learn more about look and feel
Support for new databases
Crowd now supports PostgreSQL 13 and PostgreSQL 14.
