code for boston
This week, we released improvements to our request download tool so it works better with large requests and improved the language in follow ups. Here’s what’s new at MuckRock and how you can help out.
Last week, we refactored how we delete requests to both protect user privacy and minimize agency confusion. We also fixed an attachment bug on multirequests and broadened our support for forms that agencies asks requests be submitted on.
It’s not uncommon for requests to have dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of attachments. Now you can get the all pulled together for easy download with just a click.
No major releases over the last week, but we’ll be at Code for Boston tomorrow if you want to meet up in person, or join or Slack to talk about contributing to our efforts.
Now you can edit Assignments, making it easy to correct typos, fix attribution, or otherwise update entries. See how you can help improve MuckRock in this week’s release notes.
