May Update: Version 6.2 Improvements

may updateOn May 22, we released Version 6.2 of Wild Apricot.

The release came with two significant improvements, as well as a number of bug fixes.

The first improvement you'll see is the ability to manage all your admins in one place.

Previously, the only way to manage your account administrators was one at a time within individual contact records. Now, there's a single Manage account administrators screen where you can view, add, modify, remove, and email your account administrators. Here's what it looks like:

Account Admins

This screen is found in the Account menu in the upper right corner of the admin view. For more information on adding, viewing, modifying, removing, and emailing account administrators from the Manage account administrators screen, click here.

The second improvement with Version 6.2 is the ability to change your billing period from monthly to yearly yourself.

If you’d like to do this, simply go to the Account screen under Dashboard. You will see an option to Change Period (screenshot below), which will give you the option of changing from monthly to yearly billing (for a discount of 10%), or every two years (for a discount of 15%).

Change Admin

Note: This self-service option for changing your subscription period is only available for monthly accounts and is not available for locked in, or overdue accounts. To change back to a monthly plan, or to switch between yearly, or every 2 years, please email billing@wildapricot.com.

If you decide to change your billing period, you'll be asked to choose a new subscription period and to confirm the change.

Once you confirm the new subscription period, we'll send you a summary of the account change to your billing contact. On your next monthly renewal date, you'll be charged the annual, or 2-year fee you chose.

On top of these two improvements, we also released over a dozen bug fixes, including fixes for:

  • Wrong registration type value when exporting invoices
  • Email log for event not loading
  • Donations report does not match donations list
  • And many more

An Update on GDPR

You likely received many emails from organizations updating their privacy policies last week (us included). That’s because on May 25, the European Union began enforcing their new data protection regulation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GDPR regulates the collection and storage of personal data for EU residents (including UK residents), regardless of where the organization doing the collecting is located.

At Wild Apricot, we’re committed to protecting your privacy, and on May 24, we updated our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use, which went into effect on May 25, 2018. We also emailed all account administrators with these changes. In case you missed that email, here is a summary of those changes:

  • We added detailed explanations to our Privacy Policy regarding the information we collect from you, why we collect it, what we do with it, and how we make sure that information stays safe and private.
  • We added information about users in the EU so they understand their rights under the new EU GDPR.
  • We have incorporated a Data Processing Addendum (DPA) into our Terms of Use.

Please read through our updated Privacy Policy and Terms of Use to make sure you understand the changes and how they may affect you. By continuing to use Wild Apricot you agree to these updates. Otherwise, there is no action required on your part.
