Note on Team Share Permissions: The 2.7.0 release is a staggered release for the desktop client. Only SaaS partners who have opted into our Early Access program will see their desktop client automatically updated to version 2.7.0. Team Share permissions is an example of a feature only accessible to SaaS partners enrolled in the Early Access program. There are multiple beta groups that will have permissions enabled in sequential order over time after the release starting the week of October 22nd. Once permissions is enabled for their organization, the desktop clients will all upgrade to v.2.7.0 and the web will be updated with new components and workflows to take advantage of this feature. If you’d like to be included in the early access program, particularly to beta test Team Share Permissions, please reach out to your Partner Success Manager and/or the Axcient Technical Support Team.
