The SlideRoom section of the Configuration Portal now has an updated interface. The portfolio options have also been updated for clarity:

  • Required before submission – The applicant will not be allowed to submit their CAS application until their SlideRoom supplement is completed.
  • Submit at any time – Applicants must submit a SlideRoom supplement, but they may do so after submitting their CAS application. “Opt Out” will not be available.
