Want to use your tech skills for good? We’re looking for volunteer web developers to join our remote team. 

  • Addresses issues with user account creation and organization affiliation  
  • Addresses issue where service icons would not display properly for locale specific services
  • Adds Affirmative/Defensive asylum notations for asylum application options in the Service Type Dropdown on Search Page

  • Adds “Verified Information” and “Claimed” badges to organizations’ profile pages
    • The “Verified Information” badge indicates when an organization’s profile page was last updated (AsylumConnect’s trained volunteers/interns update every organization’s profile page at least once every 6 months to ensure resource data accuracy and user safety)
    • The “Claimed” badge indicates when an organization has registered for a free AsylumConnect service provider user account and successfully affiliated their user account with their organization’s profile page (in order to help keep their organization’s information up-to-date, etc.)

  • Adds more UI updates:
    • Adds drop shadow to navigation bar
    • Adds label for service icons on Search Results and Organization Profile Pages
    • Updates layout for “Service Type” dropdown on Search Page
    • Updates search field style for Google Translate language dropdown
    • Adds dark overlay when Google Translate language dropdown is opened
    • Updates Footer and Call to Action 

  • Removes “Distrito Federal” property from state dropdown for Mexico in service area coverage section in AsylumConnect’s back-end data portal. Neighbourhoods which were previously associated with Distrito Federal are now associated with Mexico City to improve search results accuracy. 

  • Addresses issues with user account creation and organization affiliation
