Can I get a change early?

If you see a change for the upcoming release and it is something you just can't wait to have, contact Nimble AMS Support to see if it can get added to a patch that is deployed to your org prior to the major release.

You should also consider joining our Preview Channel to be on the cutting edge of our new features and receive them early. Contact your Client Success rep to learn more.

What do the different groupings mean (Added, Changed, etc.)?

Each change is grouped by type:

    • Added for new features.
    • Changed for updates to existing features.*
    • Deprecated for soon-to-be removed features.
    • Removed for now removed features.
    • Fixed for bug fixes.
    • Security for permission changes and security improvements.

*Sometimes this is a new feature that improves upon and deprecates an older feature.

When does my org get upgraded?

Our Nimble AMS team always upgrades your org to the next major release. You are never left behind! Join the Release Readiness (external) group in NimbleLand to get notified when major releases are scheduled to be deployed to your org.


As part of each seasonal release, we update four custom user profiles (and one permission set) that ship with the Nimble AMS product. If you have cloned any of the profiles (most often the Nimble AMS Standard profile), you may wish to include some or all of these new permission grants into your own custom user profiles, so that your staff can access new capabilities.
