  • The redirect option available under client forms now functions correctly.
  • Searches for leads/children by franchise users will no longer show leads/children from outside your franchise organization. (Technical details: users with responsibility over multiple locations can find any lead/child tied to any location they supervise; single-location users can find the same leads/children as the first person above them who has multi-location responsibility.)
