Optimized Event Exports

The first, new Optimized Event Export will be available beginning November 15, 2016. This export offers clients a snapshot of an event registration status at a given point in time. Primary registrants and their guests are summarized in their own row that combines all edits, adjustments, and additions to their registrations. The export can be used to quickly calculate totals, counts, and groups for event management needs. The Optimized Event Export option will be located below the current "Custom Event Data Export" area on the home reporting page for each event.
Each new export can be scheduled and saved. Retrieval options include either via an emailed link or placing the file in the client's SFTP folder. Clients will also be able to configure additional email addresses for email scheduling. The export can be further customized to pull information about the event as a whole, a primary event, and specific activities or categories, if applicable.

More information is available now in the iModules Support Center.

Secure Cookie
Secure Cookie is a security feature that will be enabled on all clients sites by November 14, 2016 in order to maintain PCI compliance and iModules's overall security posture.

A cookie is a text-only string that gets entered into the memory of a user's browser. This value is a variable that a website sets. If the lifetime of this value is set to be longer than the time a user spends at that site, then this string is saved to file for future reference. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember information (such as items added in the shopping cart in an online store) or to record the user's browsing activity.

A Secure Cookie, also known as an httpOnly cookie, is a type of cookie that only works with HTTP/HTTPS and does not work for scripting languages like JavaScript. With this change, cookies will no longer be written with JavaScript. The Secure Cookie functionality will ensure a cookie is only sent over an HTTPS connection which prevents any attackers that are eavesdropping from intercepting and reading the cookie to impersonate the user.  Using HTTPS will provide authentication, data integrity, and confidentiality.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that ALL companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.
