AF Module Updates | Jan 2022
It's been a while since we released a newsletter update but over those few months, we have been continuously adding capabilities to the AF Module Software—based on what you, our customers, need—serving every Alliance Française who are using the platform worldwide.
Below are just some of the features we've added and bugs we've squashed. 🙌
