Alpha 1.6

  • Invitations can be sent from the group email address or the user's personal account.

  • An "Expired Events" queue was added to the calendar. Any event that is past will automatically be moved into the expired events queue, where it will be deactivated. From there, users can edit the event to make it live again or it can be deleted.
