While the developers have been full steam ahead for our upcoming V2 private beta release, we’ve worked to improve several features and reporting options for the software this month. See what’s new below:
Extra search options are now available with ‘Transactions Amounts’ filter in Advanced Search & People View/Reports. This is handy when you’re wanting to see a list of people who recently have or haven’t given in your account.
We’ve opened up more song API endpoints for you to use in relation to Songs. Using these new endpoints you can now get the lyrics and chord chart information from your account. Documentation for these endpoints can be found on our API site.
Our new Ruby API Wrapper is now also available for use too!
That’s all for now!
Those using Google Chrome last week for Check-in would have experienced issues when printing to DYMO Label Printers. This has been a known issue at DYMO for a long time now but only last week did it actually affect the majority of Google Chrome users due to a recent update.
More details on this issue can be found at the official DYMO Label Framework blog.
A some may be already aware of, Google has announced that it will phase out support for NPAPI in Chrome with the ultimate removal in Sept 2015. We use NPAPI in the framework for plugin support for most browsers except for IE which we use an ActiveX plugin. We are investigating alternatives to NPAPI but we have not come up with a solution yet.
For this weekends check-ins, please use an alternative browser to Google Chrome. Some options include:
Before using another browser, please test that your check-in labels are printing for the alternative browser well before your next service. If you are experiencing issues with using an alternative browser, there may have been an issue installing the DYMO software into that browser. You may need to reinstall the two DYMO Label software packages to resolve the issue. Please see these articles for further help.
We apologise for the inconvenience and we hope that DYMO come up with a solution soon.
This month we’ve been making some improvements to the Check-in area to help improve security and also functionality.
We’ve made the following improvements
We’ve also added the ability to preview scheduled emails and SMS from the scheduled list, duplicate Service Types and the ability to add the year of a Giving Statement to the template to assist with numbering reports. For example you could get the statement number as YEAR-GIVINGNUMBER (e.g: 2015-12345678).
We’re continuing to see great progress with Version 2 and will be releasing more information about our BETA testing program in the coming months. V2 will see further improvements to the Check-in Area including a Quick Check-in system and also an onscreen QWERTY keyboard.
Full release notes of 1.11 can be found on this page.
Hope you have a great week!

Some of the biggest additions and changes have been executed within the Financial area of the system. After seeing our US churches finalize their end of year giving statements and receiving valuable feedback, we’ve made the following updates:
Hi everyone! I hope you had a great holiday season. Our team took a couple of weeks off and are now back refreshed to tackle a new year.
There’s been quite a bit of buzz about Elvanto 2. We’ve had quite a number of users asking when it will be released and if they can BETA test.
