"Work in a bee" always on for registered users
If you are registered with property-bee.com, you will always be "Working in the bee" (ie sharing information with other users) - there is no longer the option to turn off this feature.
If you have not registered, then as before, the add-on will not shared data with other users.
"Show timings" has been removed from the Options menu
In most cases users aren't interested in the exact timings of the toolbar, and we get a few support questions when it get accidently turn on.
"Show username" has been removed from the Options menu
On the righthand side of the toolbar, the username you registered with will always be displayed. This makes it easier for you to provide the account name you registered with, and us to provide the support you need.
The format used for "Export data to a CSV file" has changed
If you like to analyse the data collected by your property bee add-on, it is now much easier to do so; on the property bee toolbar select "Wizards" then "Export data to a CSV file" and follow the instructions.
