Improved Features

Grades on Permanent Records  

We changed the Grade keyword to a text box on students' permanent records. This way, permanent records are not affected by changes you make to the Grades keyword list.

Now, if you remove, combine, or edit a grade in the keyword list, the permanent record keeps the original value you set.

Improved Class Selections

We improved the way you select classes when creating the online registration form.

You can easily find the classes you want with the new Year/Period drop-down list.

It could be a hassle to re-select classes if you were just updating one thing, like the form introduction text. So we changed the default class selections. Now, when you create the next form, your previously selected classes are marked by default.

In addition, you're now prompted to confirm the selected classes.

Show/Hide Email Option

You can now show or hide the Email Instead of Mail check box on the online registration form.


When creating the form, you can include or exclude the option for family, head, spouse, and students.

Policy Compliance Changes

We added Policy Compliance as a general reason for change.

Paid and Pledged Fund Summary

Now, it's easier to print the amounts paid and the amounts pledged for a selected fund period. When selecting your fields to print in a list report, go to Fund > Fund Summary, and you can select the paid and/or pledged fields for the fund(s) you want.
