Released on May 14, 2019


This release focuses on enhancements to importing, exporting and backing up Groups and Sections. Users can now append and update Main Groups and Sections by importing data from CSV files or tabular data on the Clipboard (e.g. data copied from a spreadsheet. These import data actions provide an important method for maintaining Groups and Sections, where the data changes frequently and batch/bulk updates are desirable. For security purposes, Backup and Import actions are restricted to Admin Users within the Account Organization.

  • Events
    • Relocation of the Determine Attendance setting - Overall Event

    • Relocation of the Determine Attendance setting - Activity
      • Similarly, when editing an Activity, the user determines the attendance setting as either "Link Attendance" (to the Overall Event's attendance setting, the default) or "Ask If Attending"
      • Previously, this setting resided on its own Attendance tab in the Edit Activity side panel. The setting now resides as an option on the Details tab, as shown in the following screenshot.
