 Thanks for the great feedback on the release of the major upgrade to reports.  Lord willing, we'll have more coming on reports in 2014.  Next up is an upgrade to check-in that will include the ability to check-in families with an untethered tablet.  Then they'll pick up name tags at a nearby label printer.  I think this will make check-in more personal than it has ever been.  

But, we also sneak things in on you that we don't really tell you about.  These are generally things one of your peers at another church has suggested.  So, we thought it would be cool to give you a list of those features.  All of these have been done since summer.  They are listed by category.

-Ability to load transaction files from a third party processor
-Donor can view their contributions only (after first online gift occurs)
-Option to sort contribution data entry detail report by envelope number (if you are using envelope number)
-Notification email to staff for all registration payments
-Option to to include Notes field from contributions on statements
-Option to hide names on deposit slip report

System:
-Notification email options for individual deletion/merging of a member
-Notification email for deleted group

Groups:
-New link builder options for map, showing/collapsing the filters initially, and for detailed instructions next to the Title of the page
-Option for hiding the meeting day filter on browse groups
-Option for preventing leaders from creating a group

-Option on meeting report for removing a group member
-Option when transferring or copying group members to another group to preserve group role or force new role
