    Apologies for the lateness. Started gather the info for this as soon as I got back. It'll be on time next week. :slight_smile:

    Also, we have a blog now... so that's cool, right!?

    These will all be posted there and cross posted here as well. So if you are ever wondering if there was a platform update but don't want to traipse through community, just go to devblog.smartthings.com

  3. Yes, I am glad to see this bug acknowledged and hopefully fixed.

    I have found a few things over the past 6 months

    1. ST's response time have gone from average to great. They are getting good at tracking and fixing reported bugs.
    2. A long time request from @alex has been to have a dashboard which tracks first time right and recurrence of bugs. This had been one of my biggest issues with ST and plagued the overall reliability. While I can't say if he did or didn't implement one, I can say I see far fewer recurrence of bugs of late esp with the mobile phone apps.
    3. QA is still a concern to me, benchmarking to some of the best metrics I've seen delivered at this scale there is significant room for improvement but I'm still amazed the ground they have covered in the last 6 months given their history

    Keep it up ST
