We're constantly updating and enhancing ChurchApp, often building directly upon customer feedback to guide our development. The following lists some changes that were made to ChurchApp between 29th October and 11th December 2015.
10-Dec-2015 - Approving Booking clashes
There's a new module option for the Bookings module that allows you to select whether it's just Admin users or anyone with Manage permission who can approve a booking that clashes with another.
09-Dec-2015 - Improved Word paste detection
We've updated our email editor to improve "paste detection" from Microsoft Word. Pasted text is now automatically cleaned up to prevent common formatting issues. We've also added in a "Clear formatting" button to further help.
27-Nov-2015 - Booking Changelog
We now log and display changes to bookings on view of a booking
26-Nov-2015 - Markdown support in Notes
Notes throughout ChurchApp support Markdown formatting, allowing you to add basic text formatting throughout the system.
26-Nov-2015 - Statement of Donations Notes column
When generating a Statement of Donations, you can now choose to include the donation Notes column, if you wish.
26-Nov-2015 - Giving batches
When adding in a new batch of donations, you can now choose the fund for each donation, rather than having to create separate batches for separate funds. You can also click through from a donation to its batch to see the full details of the batch.
24-Nov-2015 - Stripe Transfer Reports
We now have a Stripe Transfer Report for the giving module, which links to the Calendar Stripe Transfer Report if the user has the correct permissions.
16-Nov-2015 - North American churches - Tax deductible giving
For North American churches, you can now specify whether a donation is tax deductible or not, which carries through to statements of donation and also My ChurchApp.
12-Nov-2015 - Rota - multi-line notes
You can now add multi-line notes to your rota dates.
12-Nov-2015 - Disabled communication actions
When you're viewing a contact, child or giver profile, if you're not able to send them an email or SMS since they don't have an email address or mobile number listed, those actions are now disabled from the "Communicate" drop-down list.
12-Nov-2015 - Giving Reports
In our Giving reports, where applicable, you can now filter by multiple Funds as well as add the givers in view to a tag.
10-Nov-2015 - Small Groups Advanced Search
You can now search custom fields in the SmallGroups module advanced search
02-Nov-2015 - QuickBooks Integration
On our Donation Totals and Non-Giftaid donation reports you can now export to the QuickBooks .iif file format.

We've now added support for Avery L4743 (2x6) labels.
03-Dec-2015 - Visitor auto-delete
Through the Children module options, you can now select the time period after which Visitors are deleted from the system. The default setting is that if someone hasn't been checked in for 3 months, their details are removed, but you can extend or reduce that, if you wish.
01-Dec-2015 - Check-In visitor notes
Through the Children module options, you can now enable a "Notes" field that is shown when checking in a visitor. You might use the field for contact details, notes of siblings being in other groups, etc.
20-Nov-2015 - More customisable check-in badges
Through the Children module options, you can now choose which field of information appear on room and child badges. For example, you can choose to exclude a child's last name and the check-in code if you wanted.
29-Oct-2015 - Embed iCal feed
We've now added in an iCal feed for all calendar events that are ticked to appear in Embed.
08-Dec-2015 - Event page UI update
Event pages where church members can sign up for events have had a facelift, including a cleaner look and feel and enhanced usability.
