Improved Features

Policy Compliance Changes

We added Policy Compliance as a general reason for change.

Show/Hide Email Option

You can now show or hide the Email Instead of Mail check box on the online registration form.

When creating the form, you can include or exclude the option for family, head, spouse, and students.

Paid and Pledged Fund Summary

Now, it's easier to print the amounts paid and the amounts pledged for a selected fund period. When selecting your fields to print in a list report, go to Fund > Fund Summary, and you can select the paid and/or pledged fields for the fund(s) you want.

We fixed the following issues that affected some of our clients.

  • When updating their information online, families could submit the registration without filling in some required fields.
  • PDS was still producing 3-digit mail trays, which were discontinued as of January 2017. We've updated the program to reflect the standards for Traying Sequence (245.7.5).
  • If you included student user keywords on the online registration form, only the first keyword was showing for the head and spouse when selecting which fields were included/required.
  • When adding a new family during the Payment/Donation Entry quick posting, you had to enter the name twice.
  • The eGiving Check Batch Status was incorrectly reporting that some records could not be found at Vanco.
  • An error displayed when running reports if you had duplicate fund periods.
