Development Update #5

Welcome to the fifth edition of the Phoenix Development Update! For those who haven't seen the previous edition yet, in this series of news posts we'll be taking a look at the most recent changes on our custom platforms.

While this wasn't the most active month in terms of new Phoenix feature releases. As always, we have a ton of exciting stuff going on behind the scenes, which we can't wait to share with you! Please do continue reading since I will be talking about our new Blocklist System, and sharing some more teases of our brand new, in the works, main website.

PhoenixBase Blocklist System

With our member and application count steadily growing, it was about time for us to get a central system to manage blocklist entries. This newly released system makes it extremely easy for our Human Resources staff to manage blocked users, since it works perfectly with our custom recruitment system, and also offers advanced protection against driver applications from blocked users.

Although we cannot publicly explain how this works behind the scenes, this is what the blocklist entry show page looks like for Human Resources members: View blocklist entry example screenshot

More new website teases!

In the past month, there has been a lot of progress on the code and design of our new main website. While we want to reveal most of it when it's ready, I can tease a little of two brand new or fully reworked pages already!

Did you notice the "4 minutes read"? That's an automatically calculated estimate! Pretty cool, right?
