    Release Notes 22 February 2021

    - This is the one many of you have been waiting for: we now allow for exact-phrase searching on the website! Use those quotations marks to find your content. We are also now supporting basic Boolean logic. Just be sure to use all caps when you do (AND, NOT, OR).

    - You can now add tags to podcasts.

    - Improvements to internal back-end functionality.

    Release Notes - 2 February 2021

    - U.S. Navy submitters can now see the "Audio" tab in the Navy Audio Series category in the Awards Module

    - DVIDS embedded videos on DoD and .mil sites now appear on non-modern browsers like Internet Explorer.

    Release Notes - 18 January 2021

    - Most closed captioning for uploaded content is now being handled by AWS automated transcription services. You should see a much faster turnaround time now. Most non-live events are no longer transcribed by people.

    - Audio thumbnails work again.

    - Public-facing video analytics are fixed. You can see them on an asset page again instead of running a report through DVIDS360.

    - We worked on a few requests regarding awards workflow, permissions setting, and SOPs.

    Release Notes – 11 January 2021

    - We squashed bugs related to the Holiday Greeting Map, the Audit tool, the Video Control edit category functionality, and site vulnerability.

    - In the Awards Module, units assigned to the U.S. Space Force have their own branch flow for this year’s DoD Awards competition. These members still will ultimately compete in the U.S. Air Force competition this year, but this is good groundwork for future competitions.

    - We linked and published the SOPs for different service awards competitions to the public-facing awards page Check them out at

    - The Marketing Notes block has been removed from the upload metadata form. We can still help you get your content out to your audiences – just shoot us an email to with the details – but this fix removes an outdated field. We’re all for less confusion.

    - Terabytes of data continue to flow out of our building as we continue migrate all our services to the cloud. That boost in site performance you see is no coincidence.
