Version 23

We introduced support for user accounts and subscriptions that are not linked to an Azure Active Directory:

  • It's now possible to create subscriptions without an Azure Active Directory.
  • It's now possible to invite users by e-mail.
  • It's now possible to invite external users by e-mail for subscriptions that are linked to an Azure Active Directory.

For now the login via a personal user account (non Azure Active Directory account) is not supported on the mobile app. This only works in the web application of Condense. We will allow this in the future.
