This week has seen some improvements with the release of Groups v1.25

There is a new option to view local pending changes before actually uploading. This is useful when you've been making lots of changes in your organigram and you've lost track of them. Before pressing the upload button, you might actually want to see what it is you've changed. Now you can! :)

I decided to heed the feedback of some users and so I included the option of inserting an additional top node ("Add Parent") to an organizational chart. Some simple logic there but it will help when people need to add grandma to their organigram. Job done

A bit more tricky was adding the option for users to log in via Google OAuth 2. Not terribly hard but it did take some debugging to make it work as I couldn't properly test this on my dev machine
