Crowdcontrol Improves Adjusted Payment Workflow

Posted by Barnett Klane about a year ago

Although rare, customers have made a mistake when rewarding for vulnerabilities and, therefore, adjustments may be needed. Upon the cancelation of a reward, researchers will be notified and informed of the reason for the change. Customers can then award the correct amount.

Added Platform Usability and Preference Control

Posted by Barnett Klane about a year ago

Recent updates include added usability and control for users. Researchers can now easily filter by and view “Pending Invitations” to programs that have yet to start. Additionally, researchers can also pause and unpause payments as needed. This update has added the ability to configure Crowdcontrol to reflect the user's current time zone – in doing so, things such as submission activity timestamps, and program start times will be reflective of the time zone set.

Improvements Made to Boost Submission Workflow Efficiency

Posted by Barnett Klane about a year ago

Significant improvements have been made to increase the speed and efficiency of the submission workflow within Crowdcontrol. Submission blockers have been added to inform users (customers and researcher) when a specific action is required to further assist the vulnerability triage, validation, and fix process. It is now easier to adjust submission data as users can now edit multiple fields at one time. Searching for submissions has been improved with the ability to apply multiple sort criterias to the tokenized search.
