Program Updates: Communicating Bounty Brief Changes to the Crowd

Posted by Travis Andrade on Sep 12, 2016 2:00:36 PM

Crowdcontrol now offers researchers the ability to follow bounty programs to stay up-to-date on changes made to organizations' bounty briefs. Now, researchers who are "subscribed" to an organization's public or private program will be alerted when there is a change in 1) rewards or 2) targets in scope. 

Why is this important? With this most recent product feature, ‘Program Updates,’ important bounty brief changes are communicated to researchers on an ongoing basis. This feature will help bolster transparency and encourage long-term loyalty and participation in specific bounty programs. We want to make sure that when changes are made to a bounty brief, researchers who are invested in a program has the insights they need to take appropriate action.
