Change List

Change Type Applies To
***************New Feature***************
Other form type admin support for organizations New Feature General
In a previous release we added a feature where corporation owners or admin contacts can complete forms (eg: corporation trust forms) from the member portal. The administrator UI to review and approve these forms is now available under “Organizations” -> “Other Forms”
Organization emails New Feature General
Organizations can now be emailed the same as members. When an organization is selected for email all admin contacts for the organization will be emailed. If there are no admin contacts for a selected organization it will show up in the excluded list in preview. You can assign a missing admin contact directly from the preview step.
Date support on custom fields New Feature General
Date values are now supported for custom fields.
Elavon admin virtual terminal New Feature Accounting
Elavon can now be configured to support allowing administrators to pay for invoices in the administration portal using the Elavon payment processor.
Process refunds through Elavon New Feature Accounting
When performing a refund from a payment’s details if that payment was made through Elavon you will have the ability to process the refund through them at the same time you record it in Alinity. If a payment has not settled yet instead you will be able to record it as cancelled and void it through Elavon. Refunds can be configured through the Elavon portal to settle or pend automatically, if set to pend this will require an administrator to clear them through the Elavon portal.
