Editing staff information (name and email settings) just got easier!
This one is for the MyConferenceTime admins who like to be organized.

The Email Summary has been improved. You can view a comprehensive list of the emails that were sent for your school. You can also see when an email was delivered, if it was opened, or if it bounced due to a typo in the email address.
