Veracross Connect Sessions in July
Recent Updates | Veracross University Content

Is it summer already? This is the time of year when we see the biggest number of new schools and users join the Veracross community, preparing to use Veracross for the first time. One of the things I love most about this community is the collaboration I get to see between schools. This often takes the shape of schools dialoguing and sharing their experience and wisdom about how to leverage Veracross in productive ways. To that end, if you haven’t met other Veracross users yet, I would encourage you to take advantage of resources that offer this opportunity. You won’t regret it.

The Virtual Veracross Connect sessions happening throughout July offer a time to hear from other schools about how they are preparing for the upcoming school year; and our live training sessions give you a chance to ask real-time questions while interacting with peer Veracross schools. Discover more about both opportunities below.

Recent Product Updates

In June, we squashed 12 bugs and published 9 enhancements. Here is a highlight of recent product updates. Find them all at Learn Veracross.

  • New Option to Remove Pledge Matching for Online Giving v2: In response to your feedback, we added an option in online giving forms to remove the "Apply to Outstanding Pledges" step of the online giving process. We hope this simplifies the workflow for donors giving money for specific emergency fundraising.
  • Photo Manager Security Role: We added a new photo manager supplemental security role, Person_Photo_Admin. Unless a user is a SysAdmin1 or 2, this new security role will be required to add or replace a person photo in Axiom. If there is a non-SysAdmin user in your system who should be able to add and replace person photos in Axiom, you should give them this security role so they can continue to perform these photo-related tasks.
  • New "Person Course Request Exists?" Function Field: This new function field allows Axiom users to build complex reports based on the existence (or non-existence) of course requests. As all of our schools approach the challenge of scheduling for the fall, our goal is for this new field to enable you to group students with the same or similar course requests to help inform your scheduling strategy and contact tracing efforts. To use it, simply add it to a student query and supply the desired parameters:

Veracross University: New Content Available

We just added two video-based learning paths for business office users:

We also have 28 live sessions currently scheduled in July. Led by Veracross instructors, these sessions typically run 30 minutes and are interactive, so bring your questions and ideas to share. They are intended to extend the "how-to" video-based learning, so they focus on workflows and "connecting the dots" among areas of functionality.

Live Sessions in July

The following is a list of content areas and topics with live sessions coming up. The links take you directly to the particular learning paths where you can register for specific classes. All sessions are now recorded and emailed to registrants as well as posted back in the learning path for later reference.
