We have some exciting announcements, features and improvements to share with our services.
Please Note: The new functionality that we are announcing today will be available to services, educators and parents one week from now, on either the 7th of May or the 10th of May. Any minor bug fixes that have already been implemented will be listed at the bottom of this document.

Communications Centre (to be released on the 10th of May, 2021)
Xplor has been working with our customers over the past year to identify key needs around communication in the service setting. In response to this feedback, we have spent a significant period of time working to enhance the communications offerings in Office, Playground and Home.
We are excited to share a feature set which combines the original Admin Post function with SMS and Email capabilities. We are calling this the Communications Centre.
In Office, Admins can now create engaging and content-rich posts that can be shared with parents via email, Home App and Home Web. If your service uses the SMS booster, this functionality will also be accessible via Comms Centre.
Messages now include text formatting, embedded images and attachments, giving you control over managing your parent communications.
Support content for this feature can be found here.
CCS Error Reporting
We have revamped the CCS submissions page to allow admins to easily and quickly identify issues from both current and historical CCS-submittable weeks. You can read more information about this feature here.
Other Fixes and Changes
