ChMeetings Updates for March 2023Nico
March 2023 has been yet another productive month for the ChMeetings team, and we hope it’s been the same for you. This time we have been working on smaller features covering a wide range of needs, such as improving efficiency, expanding contribution sources, increasing privacy, and improving the event attendance experience, among others.
You can automatically email members on their birthday or anniversary; or follow up with new contributors. The feature is only available to paid accounts and can be found under Settings > Automated Tasks. Read the feature guide.
Four New Languages
ChMeetings is now available in Afrikaans, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Norwegian (Bokmål). Admins can change the main default languages from Settings > Account Settings, while members can change their account language from Settings > Change Language.
You can collect contributions from organizations both online and offline. You can add organizations from under Contributions > Organizations and select Organization as the contribution type. Admins can manage access to the feature from under Roles & Permissions. A member needs to be on record as the organization owner to contribute on its behalf. If Members are given access to Organizations and are also the owner of an organization, then they can select whether to contribute personally or on behalf of the organization. Learn more.
Some of the other features we worked on this March are the following:
- Add form profile fields as merge fields within the form confirmation email;
- Attach files to volunteer emails;
- Kiosk Mode checkout;
- Ability to disable member access to Family Contributions;
- Communicate with members via Facebook Messenger and Telegram;
- New SMS provider: SMSGlobal;
- Several small improvements to Reports.
- Small, platform-wide user interface improvements.
