      1. Playbook: https://{your sitename}
      2. Your old shortcuts and bookmarks should forward to the new ones, but we recommend updating them just to be sure.
    2. The Login pages for Reports and Admin have been retired. To sign in to the Reports, sign in to Playbook and click Dashboard.Nov 5, 2022 - URL Revamp - 1 - Dashboard
    3. To sign in to Admin, sign in to Playbook and click Admin. This button only shows for administrators. If you're not an admin, this button is not displayed.Nov 5, 2022 - URL Revamp - 2 - Admin
    4. Reports and Admin now auto-logout after 30 minutes of inactivity, the same as Playbook. All three apps are integrated, so activity in one app counts as activity in the other two apps. After 30 minutes of inactivity in all three apps, you are auto-logged out and a message is displayed.
    5. We also upgraded Angular, a platform for building mobile and desktop web apps, which has eliminated most if not all exceptions in the Reports. Yay!
