Contact Us Form Updates

The ‘Contact Us’ form, which has been available within the transitional UI, is now available within the legacy UI, in addition to all login pages and the public collections page. In these additional pages, the Contact Us link will appear in the footer. 

Note:

The exact positioning within the footer may be different from platform-to-platform depending on specific client customizations. In some cases of customizations, no Contact Us link will be shown.

Resolved Issues

  • An issue where the footer could appear in the wrong place when using Saved Views has been resolved.
