Passageways is releasing version 2.8 to our customers on July 20th, 2019 starting around 10:30 pm Eastern.  


This release updates how permissions are displayed and provides a new way to assign permissions, an easy way to invite users to your organization, and an update that improves our Approval Experience.

For a full walk-through of our update, please watch our video covering all the new features.


New Features and Improvements.
