4.9.0 Highlights

Allow multiple places to be assigned to users

To better support Supervisors who manage CHWs across multiple areas, it is now possible to assign more than one “Place” (ie Community Health Unit, Health Center, etc…) to a user. To enable this feature, simply assign the can_have_multiple_places permission to the relevant user role(s) and add the desired “Place(s)” to the user.
