Added a visibility update for invitations: We now show attendees if they're available or busy in invitations for appointments.

Added support for iPhone X. We are now building apps that look just as good on Apple’s new edge-to-edge iPhone X screens as they do on prior models.

Made viewing poll results less ambiguous. When you show poll results by session, the session date and time appears in the dropdown as well, making it easier to differentiate between sessions with the same name.

Gave the Project Timeline a reset button. You can delete all custom milestones from the Project Timeline and reset it to its defaults in one click. Events inside apps published as stand-alone will not be reset.

Added more control over the in-app game. You can now change the order of achievements and categories, delete them, and choose how many times an attendee must do something before they earn points in Game. You can also clear the Leaderboard before publishing an event.

Updated suggested ads. For Diamond profiles, the “People Also Viewed” suggested ad now displays the venues a planner has viewed along with the one they're currently looking at. If they are within a five-mile radius of the venue being viewed, up to six suggested ads will be displayed on the "Nearby" map.

Added “Event Size” filter to mobile. When searching the Supplier Network on a mobile device, you can now use the “Event Size” filter. If you specify the number of attendees per day, it will apply to the “Largest Room” filter and when you specify guest rooms per night, it applies to the “Guest Room” filter.

Separated CVB and DMC venue types. Now CVB and DMC venue types are treated as separate types so you can filter for either. You can also include or exclude SEVs and DMCs in search results by default. Suppliers who choose to copy CVBs or DMCs on their proposal will now only see those that received the RFP.

Updated RFP portal user visibility. Portal Managers can now add and remove an individual user's visibility to RFP content from Admin > Websites > Portals > Visibility. However, they can only manage RFP content that has already been published to the portal. Adding brand new RFPs to a portal will continue to be done from the Portal Publisher for that RFP.

Updated the Total Meeting Space and Exhibit Space fields. Suppliers can more accurately market their meeting and exhibit space by entering the exact total instead of selecting it in increments of one thousand.

Added option to display affiliates. Suppliers with Affiliate companies that have purchased a Visibility Package from Cvent can now display their affiliation on their venue profile and Quick View under Brands in Venue Details > Listing Options.

Added decimals for dimensions. Now the ceiling height and room dimension values include a decimal to ensure measurements are accurate.
