Spring has sprung, and it's the perfect time to start planning new events and activities.

The March 2013 Access ACS update brings a number of enhancements and corrections for Events Registration that will make your events easier to create and manage.

For a printable version of these release notes, download the PDF .  


Event Registration

When you create a new sub-event, the start and end time will now default to the same start and end time as the main event. You can then adjust the sub-event times as needed. 

The Paragraph Text custom question field now exports up to 2,500 characters to Excel. Previously, the export limit was 250 characters. 

In the My Registrations widget, you can view all event registrations made by your family members. This includes guests registered by your family. 


Church Life Updates

We have updated the Church Life app to work with assigned connections and online giving (ACS Pay Plus clients only). View the Church Life Release Notes for more information.



Please note it will take a few days for Church Life to update in the Itunes™ and Google Play™ stores. As such, these enhancements and corrections may not be available immediately upon the new Access ACS update.


You can use the same name for multiple sub-events. This causes a "SubRegsPivot" error when you attempt to export event data. 

Canceled sub-events display in the Registrations window and the sub-event report. 

On the Registrations tab, the Guest Registration Options section is not fully visible after resizing the window or viewing on a Mac.

On the Event Setup Expert and Payments window, the Refund link for a canceled event displays when the amount due equals zero. 

When you export events with custom questions that contain special characters, the special characters now properly display for the questions. 

Members could edit their name, and leave the Last Name field blank. The Last Name field is a required field and this created issues.

Inactive Small Group positions still displayed as an option when adding someone to a roster.

When a member edited their record, Organization displayed as an option in the Record Type drop-down list. 

The View Maps button did not display on the Small Groups link page, even when correct addresses are entered for groups.
