VCSCBi: Labnodes Releases Master

We have resolved 79 ticketed tasks, bugs, or improvements. Significant improvements are listed below:

  • Copy a collection. Members may now copy an entire collection to a new community. This feature allows collaborators with offer subscription permission to share entire resource collections. Resources may still be shared on an individual basis without sharing the entire collection.
  • Move a collection. We have also added a new feature that allows members to move a resource collection from one community to another. Once the collection has been moved, it may be moved back to its home community or to yet another community.
  • Delete (permanently) a collection. It is now possible to delete an entire collection.  Members may remove collections by clicking on the Actions button and selecting Remove under the Manage Subscription heading.
