Portal Update – Version 3.42 Now Live

On Thursday March 25, 2016 we released a new version of the portal 3.42.

Here are some of the items you’ll see updated in the latest version.

New Payees Default to Active – When on the transaction screen, and adding a payee, they will default to an active payee on your list and show in the initial dropdown.  There was a previous bug that was causing those to go in-active and caused some confusion.

Mobile Expense Entries – There was a problem with the numeric keypad so we switched to the full keyboard to allow for full amounts to be entered.

Mobile Expense Entry Close Window – There was a bug with the expense entry window being difficult to close using iOS devices.  That has been fixed.

Transaction Fields Required – When entering a transaction, the Date, Account, Amount and Payee fields are now required to complete.

Admin Updates – There were several admin updates completed as well to allow our team to work more efficiently to serve your church.


If there are ever any items that you notice might not be working correctly or you have a suggestion for an improvement, please let us know and we can add that to our development list.

Bug with Payee Select

UPDATE FIXED – 03-09-16 – We found the issue and it is caused by payees being inactive.  To fix what payees will show on the drop down to select a transaction, go to Payees  and make that payee active by selecting YES in the drop down.  Sorry for the inconvenience but this will resolve that issue.


UPDATE – 03-03-16 – This bug seems to only be affecting several individual churches and organizations, but not all.  Our development team is continuing to look into it.

We are aware of a bug in the transaction request tools to select a payee from your existing list.  We are working on getting a fix updated and will notify once complete.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
