Release Notes - March 2018

Feature Spotlights

  • Dismissing recurring events in mass: When dismissing recurring events, you now have the ability to dismiss several recurring events at once. You can check all the events that need be canceled on the Follow Up screen, and mass dismiss them. You may also load all events instead of selecting Load More from the bottom of the screen to view all events at once. Once you mass dismiss recurring events, invoices for deferred revenue from the dismissed recurring events will be automatically batched into a Dismissed Events batch on the Invoice screen. This will allow for your revenue to be recognized. If you do not defer revenue for memberships, you may simply dismiss the events and no batch will be created.
