🛠️Other Improvements

­­Self Account Verification - Now users can link their existing phone number or email to a different account. This was due to the fact that previously, users could create two separate accounts, one using their email and the other using their mobile number, but they were unable to link these two accounts because the system displayed credentials that were already in use.

Hide or show (event, courses, direct message) - Now, as an admin you can hide or show events, courses and direct message in Left navigation menu. Same will apply on the white label mobile app of your community. Learn more
