***************New Feature***************
Reports to Compare Renewal Results New Feature Registration
Two new reports that provide details on how the most recent renewal year compares to the previous 2 years. Both reports provide a more detailed breakdown of the register the member is renewing FROM in order to see the increases or decreases of renewals throughout the years.
Email Statistics by Year Report New Feature Correspondence

***************Feature Update***************
Shared “People” Email Templates Feature Update Email
Email templates that are used on the people page can now be selected when emailing from any of the other search pages (eg: Registrations or Invoices). The email templates are separated into groups showing the email template specific to the page at the top of the list then the people email templates at the bottom.
Email Templates Grouped By Category Feature Update Email
Email templates with categories will now be grouped when selecting an email template to send.
Restrict Complaint Related Emails by Default Feature Update Complaints
When creating emails from a complaint feature the restriction option will be set by default on the email.
Preserve Withdrawn Forms Feature Update General
Forms that are withdrawn in Alinity will now have a PDF generated and stored on the person’s record to view for audit purposes.
Registration Year for Statistic Displays Feature Update Registration
The statistic widgets have been updated to allow the registration year displayed by the charts to be changed so all years can be viewed.
***************End of Feature Update***************
***************Bug Fix***************
Popover Adjustments Bug Fix General
Additional adjustments were made to the popovers to address scenarios where it may take several clicks to open them.
Registration Snapshots can be Modified When Locked Bug Fix Registration
Snapshots could be edited or deleted when they were locked, this has been corrected and will no longer be possible.
Snapshot Scheduling Bug Fix Registration
Snapshots that were created to run on a scheduled date did not run at the end of the chosen day, this has now been corrected.
Save & Email on Invoices Bug Fix Accounting
Invoices for organizations cannot be emailed automatically since they are not related directly to a person with an email address. The option to save & email is hidden when an organization is selected now and this prevents receiving an error.
PAD Batch Processing Time Out Bug Fix Accounting
When processing PAD transactions by selecting them in the table and running the “Process Transactions” batch action. The processing timed out when too many records were selected. This issue was fixed by running the process in a background job.
***************End of Bug Fix***************
