New Features

    • Volunteer menu now just has 'List Volunteers' which lists attendees that have at least one task in progress/complete for the current event.
    • On-duty/Off-duty workflow was removed.
    • To add new volunteers to the list, search for them in the console search field and then navigate to the volunteer tab of their profile.
    • List Volunteers will now allow you to close all open jobs if the event is read-only. (to close accidentally left open tasks from past events)


Before starting an upgrade, we recommend that you backup your Convention Master database and files.

To perform the upgrade, run a Subversion update in the folder that contains your Convention Master installation:

$ svn up /path/to/convention_master

When this has completed, log in to the staff console [] with an account that has the "Perform DB and System Upgrades" permission to automatically trigger any pending schema updates. DO NOT FORGET THIS STEP, otherwise it will leave your install in a locked upgrade state.

For fuller/more complete information on upgrading your Convention Master installation, please see our upgrade documentation.
