Every year there seems to be a feature that stands out both in terms of our development effort and value to our friends.  Usually we look back on a year to determine that, but last night's release of The Dashboard is so significant that it's obviously the winner for 2019.  It's a big deal.

Thanks again to many of you, our friends, who constantly use the software and give us your feedback and thoughts on improvement.  Most of these six updates came from our conversations and were released in the last few months.  In fact, you've likely seen them already.  Software development is a continuous thing.  Not unlike spiritual development as I think about it.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 11/20/18 7:48 AM

Happy Thanksgiving!  In our prayer time this morning, we remembered things about Churchteams for which we thank God.  Mark summarized it best: relationships. Not only incredible relationships with each other as a team, but incredible relationships with our clients and so many others.  In other words, you.  Here are a couple of fairly major upgrades that came from your ideas.  Hopefully you will find these very helpful.

New Releases: Email, Reports, Links, Merge Groups & More

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 11/13/18 6:37 AM

We do dedicated blog posts and emails for major changes like the Workflow feature we've talked about a lot the past couple of months.  But in addition, there have been a lot of other less major but still significant upgrades the past three months or so.  Here is a quick overview of the rest of this post:

 

  1. Changed Email Providers
  2. Errors Using Email Personalization
  3. Unsubscribe Notices If Emails Are Scheduled
  4. Text To Give To A Designated Fund
  5. Tracking Assimilation Progress Through Groups Report
  6. Check-in: Re-print Name Tags And Security Labels
  7. Registration Links Improved
  8. Limit Coach Level Access To Search
  9. Browse Groups Page Style Options
  10. Add Leader Count to Attendance By Group Report
  11. Track Recurring vs. Non-recurring Donations
  12. Merge Groups Options

1. Changed Email Providers.  We made a major change in our email system the past couple of months moving from one provider to another one because of changes in the business model of the original provider.  Two big advantages of the new provider relate to email history.

  1. Email history populates much faster making it more usable.
  2. Email history shows not only that people opened their email, but also if they clicked something to respond to it.

2. Errors Using Email Personalization.  The "Email request for updated information" report and email / text templates for the Workflow feature allow you to add and as radicals to personalize emails / texts. However, our primary Email options do not currently support this personalization (that's coming). Until then, there's now a feature that catches misapplications of these commands and gives you a pop-up warning. That way you won't send out any goofy looking emails.
