Please also note that on July 9, 2013 we will be shutting down Activities. If you have an upcoming Activity, please recreate it as an event. (To ensure the necessary features are met, we will wait until Events have subevents and promotional tools to shut down Meetings.)

As always, thanks for all your fantastic feedback, we couldn’t do it without you. Please contact our Support team with any questions.
