31 January 23: Change request subject, ordered lists, and more

We've added more context around change requests, improved performance and squashed some bugs.

βž• Improved

Change requests default subject

A default subject is added when you create a change request instead of leaving it untitled. This allows you to see what are the most recent changes at a glance, even if you forget to add a subject to a change request.

  • Add default subject to change requests without one.

  • Update change request's updatedAt field on all comment activity.

Ordered lists starting at another number

You can start at steps 2, 3, or beyond in an ordered list now. If you already have an ordered list somewhere else on your page, you can pick the numbering up where you left off after that. No need to start at 1 every time.

  • Allow insertion of ordered lists starting at another number than 1 by typing

  • Add support in Markdown/HTML parsing for ordered lists starting at another number than 1

We've also made improvements to the following:

  • Notify also collection and organization reviewers when a change request is submitted for review

  • Change requests are no longer automatically converted to draft when editing happens

  • Usability and accessibility improvements for CheckBox

  • Add an API endpoint to allow adding/removing users from a team based on their email

  • No longer list expandable blocks in the page outline

  • Fix an issue where user couldn't access change request

  • Fix page conflicts indicators not showing anymore when page has conflicts

  • Fix position of deleted diff indicator when the first block is deleted.
