To add to the portal announcement only, some variation on this release notes blurb for edX Insights (ok'd by Victor):
EdX Insights
A new metric that measures total interest in your course over time is now available in edX Insights. The Enrollment Activity page now includes a metric for Total Enrollment (the number of learners who have ever been enrolled in the course) as well as for Current Enrollment (the number of learners enrolled as of the computation date, not including learners who have unenrolled).

In case the announcement about the Zendesk/Portal integration happens next week (see attached screen shot above):

EdX has incorporated its technical support for course teams into the edX Partner
Portal. To access technical support, submit a support ticket, and review any
support tickets you have created, go to https://partners.edx.org and select
*Course Staff Support* at the top of the page. This option is available on
every page, so you can access the technical support site from wherever you
are.
