Scheduled Payment UI Change
If the scheduled payments option is enabled on your giving or membership forms, you are most likely used to constituents having to indicate their total payment breakdown less one. We understand this can cause confusion among various users and have incorporated a new flow for this option that allows a more intuitive and user friendly breakdown of their gift/membership to your organization.
On January 31, 2017 the scheduled payment option (not perpetual) will change to allow a constituent to indicate the total number of payments they intend to break their payment into. As seen in the giving screenshot below a donor will receive a clear breakdown of payments remaining as well as the amount that is due today.
Check out our friends at Fordham University who are one of the first adopters on this new UI change!
As well as our friends at Purdue who are using a new UI flow on their membership forms.
NOTE: On January 31st the UI will change for all Giving and Membership instances of scheduled payments site wide. This change will still function as expected for clients who have a defined first payment of X set up for these forms or use Promo codes for Membership. Also, if you have current styling on your form you should not experience any disruption with the design on your form.
Checkbox Export Ignores Custom Values
Effective January 31, 2017, the export will now respect the field setting through which a client specifies the desired export value (can be 0/1, true/false, or yes/no). Currently there may be some clients who expect the ignored format that currently display as True/False. Organizations with scripts that process scheduled exports should address their process of correcting these incorrect values or enlist in support from iModules to help remedy prior to the January 31st launch of this item. This defect can be further referenced with ticket ENC-25033.
