  • Icon Consistency: We have made changes to the icons on the overall site for consistency. Icons have been updated for new Individual Profiles, Organization Profiles, Plants, Collections. Icons have also been updates for the page sections of Plants, Collections, Community & Network.  The icon on a plant to represent a tag or sign has been ordered has also be updated to a QR code icon.

  • Manage Network (Organization Profiles): Owners and Admins will see themselves in the Manage Network list.
