Issue 102

We are building features for the Women Who Code community and we want to highlight that work with our stakeholders, you! THANK YOU to our contributors for dedicating their valuable time to help us build tech a place where women can excel.

You can follow all of our work on github. Below are a few snippets of our awesome features.


During this week's sprint, we worked on a lot of great features for Women Who Code, including improved authorization and login routines, as well as the beginning of some long-term projects that will eventually add whole dimensions to the functionality for our product! 

We updated an Omniauth login strategy that allows for Admins, Network Leaders, Customers, and basic users to each login and be automatically directed to the correct backend dashboard with access to all accompanying information and services. This also includes a more sophisticated authentication process. 

We implemented advanced controls over Customers for Admin users on the back end, with the ability to add perks and placements to their accounts manually. 

We updated the copy on the email sent to Customers outlining "Next Steps" to make the process more clear and created a member onboarding notification email that is sent when a user signs up but not when they log in. The purpose of this communication is to encourage members to sign in and update their profile. 

We also started working on steps to transition Network Leader profiles into their own class, in order to create a more seamless on boarding and off boarding process, while removing the decoupling between joining a Network and becoming a Leader.
