Make sure you're taking advantage of the latest product enhancements. If you're a heavy database user, you'll definitely want to see what's new.

Jared Allen of our Customer Experience team demonstrates:

- Database improvements: learn how to notify users via email when database records change, prevent everyone from creating duplicate records and leverage runtime filters to quickly switch between different sets of records.

- User interface changes: we've simplified how you work with Central Desktop SocialBridge® via drag-and-drop file uploads, fewer buttons in Files & Discussions, improved calendar scheduling and more.

- Project overviews: a new summary view lets you add tasks, check recent activity, and identify both upcoming and overdue items. If you don't have any tasks or milestones in a new workspace, a new training message walks you through how to get started.

- Document sharing: you can now send guest links that expire on a particular date to people who are not part of your workspaces.
