Feature Request Friday: March 1–29

Check out all the feature request submissions we've received in the last few weeks!

Developing new features for our platform is one of the key ways we can make sure we are giving you the best service possible — and we wouldn’t be able to do it without your help. After a short hiatus, we’re back with a brand new collection of all the feature requests you submitted in the last few weeks. Let’s dig in!
