πŸ”₯ Week 4 Updates πŸ”₯

Editable AutoCharge Receipt Email

We have now added the option to edit the AutoCharge receipt email which you could choose to have automatically be sent out to your contacts after a membership payment is collected. You will be able to find this new update by going to your left side menu, Settings>Memberships, clicking on the the 'Settings' tab at the top of the membership templates page, and scrolling down towards the bottom of the page. The email template will be found right above the In House Membership Invoice Email field. Please make sure you are adding the proper fields on the email which will be found in the email toolbox.

NEW Contact Types Considered as Active Option

With the inclusion of this new feature, you will be able to select which contact types you want to be able to track on the Ultimate Stats report under the Total Members column, this way if you'd like to include your campers and/or after schoolers in that number, you could simply add those contact types in the the proper field in the General Settings. This will not affect any other facets of the system. This will be strictly for reporting purposes on the Ultimate Stats report

πŸ”₯ Week 3 Updates πŸ”₯

Payment Options Contact Stats

With this new update you will be able to find exactly how many contacts are under each specific payment option on a membership. By clicking on the number associated to each option you will be able to see the names of each student that make up that number. You will be able to find this new column by going to your left side menu, Settings>Memberships, and clicking on the '+' icon next to the membership name.

πŸ”₯ Week 2 Updates πŸ”₯

Checkout Page Auto-Redirect to Digital Agreement Page

With this new change in the software you will be able to make it to where a contact gets automatically redirected to the digital agreement screen after they sign up for a membership/program on a checkout page taking the guess work out of what to do after completing their payment. For this to work you will first need to make sure you have an agreement set up under your membership template(s), after that you will need to scroll down the General Settings for your checkout page and ensure that you have both the 'Skip Thank You Page' and 'Sign Digital Agreement' checkboxes turned on in the settings. That's it! Your new online signups will be automatically be sent to the agreement screen after their purchase helping reduce the amount of unsigned agreements you would have to get signed.

New Payment Collection Picker for Memberships on Checkout Pages

With this new addition to the system, you will be able to select which payment collection method you want your student's memberships to be set as after they sign up for a membership through a checkout page. You will be able to choose from: Autocharge Credit Card/EFT, In House, & Paid in Full. For the Autocharge Credit Card/EFT collection method, the system will base the payment type to set for the membership on which payment method was used for the down payment paid through the checkout page.
