Two Wild Apricot Releases - 2.14 and 2.15

Lori Halley 21 March 2007 2 comments

A quick overview of the main Wild Apricot's enhancements in version 2.15 released March 19th as well as version 2.14 since we did not post about it separately.

Advanced Search in Contacts Database

This feature allows administrators to search their member database by selecting from the list of all fields - and specifying search values for each field. For example, you can search by member's city or any of your custom fields.

 

Custom Event Fields

Because all events are different, we added a very useful feature - custom event registration fields. Administrators can now change/add the set of fields for each registration form to collect information specific to their event/organization. For example, if your organization wants to offer a choice of meals, you can create fields for Vegetarian, Vegan or Kosher meals. To help manage each individual registration, we added the ability to view details of each registration. This new feature works in a similar way to custom member database fields.


 

Member Database Statistics

Wild Apricot's latest version now includes key membership statistics table. Users can see at a glance a statistics with an overview of members - membership totals by member level and status (e.g. pending, Lapsed, Active and New memberships). You can also scroll down to see who the members are by name and email or export this filtered list.


 

Renewal Process Automation

To help speed the membership renewal process, we have added a new feature - automation of the member renewal process. With this feature, administrators can track membership expiration, automate the process of sending reminders to members and change the status of expired member accounts.

 

We're always looking for ways to make Wild Apricot more useful to you, so please keep your feedback coming and let us know what you think.

    Can't wait to see how the customized events will work. It will be great to put that to work. But we need to be able to sell multiple event tickets via PayPal. Right now only one event ticket can be purchased at a time. If you click through to PayPal there is no way to edit the cart and increase your order even when "view cart" is clicked.

    Love the membership renewal reminders but need to be able to have PayPal subscription feature working so that members actually pay for their membership and not just get reminded.

    Our site is for an alumni association. Our members need to see the members directory with a more customized way. The new search features are great but that is only for user/admin. Soon we will have about 250 registered visible in this directory but there is no way to distinguish alumni from faculty or to view alumni by graduating year without clicking on an individual name. It would be great if the admin can customize the look of the members directory.

    Thanks for letting us make suggestions.
