Release of Updates 7.3.3 & 7.4.0 - WatchTowerHQ
17 March 2023

Release of Updates 7.3.3 & 7.4.0

Today we made two large pushes.

In 7.3.3 we revamped the UI and made it overall more sleek. While this isn’t finished and there’s much more to come, this revamp made many things easier to navigate.

In 7.4.0 we added a number of enhanced functions that we’ll get into now.

The Big Stuff:

Update #1

Notifications: WordPress Specific - - Admin Account Added - Admin Account Edited (email changed) - Admin Account Removed
What is it?

Adding, Editing, and Removing Admin accounts will trigger a notification.

Why does this matter?

You'll be notified any time an Admin account changes. This can be an early indicator of a bad actor getting into a website and let's you immediately take action if an alert was suspicious or unexpected.

How do I get started? These are setup for you and will begin to notify you when an Admin is added. Update #2

Reporting: Allow download of CSV file with CMS Access Log What is it?

The ability to download a CSV file with all

Why does this matter?
Previously WTHQ would track the CMS Access, but there was not ability for the user to download and manipulate that data. How do I get started? From the Individual Website Screen select Reports, in the dropdown you will now see export CMS Access Log Update #3

User Experience: Added Contacts to Main Menu, Multiple Contacts per Company What is it?

Historically every Company was limited to one contact and in order to access Contacts you had to go into the individual website. Now you can add multiple contacts to every company and assign Primary Contacts to each company. Don't worry, the contacts that were in WTHQ before are now marked as Primary.

Why does this matter?
Some companies have more than one contact that needs reporting, or emergency contacts to be contacted in the event a site is down. Those contacts would've had to have been tracked in Notes or in another system. Now all contacts are there for you and your team to see. We added Contacts to the main menu so you can see the complete universe of contacts on one screen and quickly reassign, edit, or delete them. How do I get started? It's all there ready for you to go! If you have additional contacts to add to a company, go into the individual website screen, click on Contacts in the menu, click Add Contact, and you're ready to go! Update #4

Change: Customers to Companies What is it?

A change to the nomenclature.
Why does this matter?
With the expansion of Contacts, having Customers and Contacts was too similar, so we changed it to Contacts and Companies. Contacts are meant to be individuals within a business. Companies are meant to be businesses. How do I get started? You're all set. 7.4.0
