Director Release 6-18-2012 – Easily swap household member registrations plus better Program status visibility

A release went in last Friday that includes two updates that should be of help to everyone. The first of these addresses the situation where Mom or Dad registered themselves instead of little Billy or Sally for a Program. There is now a drop down that lets you easily change the registrant from one family Member to another.

The second change is a more subtle one around providing more information about a Program and its’ current state.

1. Change registrant ...

We rolled out a release today to update the HTML/Text editor that is used to post Announcements and maintain content on custom Community pages. 


  • Is cross-browser compatible (tested on IE 7+, FireFox, Chrome & Safari

Release 4-18-12 – Master/Events Calendar on Community portal and new report

We just released an update that includes the ability to display a Master/Events Calendar on the RecDesk Community portal. This is similar to the Master Calendar that has been available in RecDesk Director for some time. The Community version displays Program related events only. It will not display general Facility reservation information or private Program related events.

Release 2-14-12 (Director) – Duplicate Member Profile Merging

We released an upgrade today that includes support for consolidation of/removal of duplicate Member accounts. This is something that can happen if one account is made in-house while a household creates their own online or vice versa. Over time, this can result in two or more accounts that have Program and Payment history associated with them for the same individual. The new functionality will merge ALL Program Registration and Payment History and do a delete on the duplicate profile.

The procedure ...
