We launched portal integration with MuckRock a while ago, but have noticed that we are still missing a lot of portals in the system. We’ve made it easier for us to catch when an agency starts using a portal, plus a few other tweaks to speed up getting requesters to their files.
We’ve made a small fix to eliminate a search bug from some profile pages. More importantly, you can help us set our 2019 priorities by taking our user survey — and get a chance to win free MuckRock swag.
Last week was mostly working on some longer term improvements, but we roll out a fix so that you will now see the correct plan on your settings page. If you’re looking to get a little more hands on with MuckRock development, we still have two openings for our News Nerd in Residence — apply today!
Last week we pushed a number of changes, from making it easier to crowdsource your FOIA finds to reducing the amount of follow ups in many jurisdictions. Plus, we have an opportunity to turn your chatbot dreams into reality.
Removing features is not as much fun as adding them, but we think this time it will make things easier as you stay on top of your requests.
