The latest release of WebLink Connect will be available beginning Tuesday, January 28th. As with previous releases, we will roll out these updates in stages to clients. All clients will have the release by Friday, January 31st.
This release includes the following features and improvements.
- Events - Custom Registration Button
- Based on user feedback, we have added a feature to our new Event Details page to allow users to upload a custom image to use in place of the default Register button. This will allow you to create buttons with your own text and branding to match your event’s style and messaging.
- Events - Revenue Items
- Added a “check” to ensure that invoices are not created for $0.00 event items
- Added a feature to prevent an event item that is not $0.00 from being saved if no revenue item is selected
- Events - Paid Checkbox in Registration Management
- Based on user feedback, we have changed the Paid checkbox on a sign up to be editable after a sign up has been saved. This will allow users without financial access to flag attendees as paid without creating a payment for them.
- Once a payment has been received and applied, the paid checkbox will flag itself as checked and stop being editable to show that payment has been entered into WebLink Connect.
- Events – Registration Management - Added the ability to sort and filter the “Attendee View” tab on the Registration Management screen.
- Events – Event Details Webpage - Changed the Event Details webpage to use a non-secure domain to ensure better search results. The registration page, which accepts credit card payments, is still a secure page.
