The Surpass team recently hosted the 12.30 pre-release webinar, on Tuesday 12 July.
Elaine from the Surpass Training team and host Rosie Sweeney explained the new and improved features in the 12.30 release, including User Experience (UX) improvements in ‘Item Authoring’ and performance improvements for Surpass users.
Watch the recording here, and read on for an overview of the key features that were discussed.
- Citations and Item Lists are now in the right-hand panel, for a better user experience.
