We're constantly updating and enhancing ChurchSuite, often building directly upon customer feedback to guide our development. The following lists some changes that were made to ChurchSuite between 20th January 2022 and 6th April 2022.
January 26th, 2022 Event feeds have a lot of new features
We've made some exciting updates to the embeddable events feed, enabling lots more customisation of the events that show, the layout, and the styling of how they look. Here's what's new: 1. Event feeds are no longer limited to featured events; so you can generate embed code featured and non-featured events 2. There's now a choice of different layouts to best suit the look of your website - choose between 2 'grid' layouts, or a 'list' layout 3. There's a new option to add a Search bar, and options to show drop-down selectors for Category and Site 4. You can now choose how sequence events are surfaced in the feed - whether to combine similar events in the sequence (perhaps to just show the next future date only, or whether to show all future sequence dates)
March 25th, 2022 Adding a new customer while adding a booking
We've made some further updates to the 'Add customer' workflow when adding a booking. Now, when adding a booking, you can click 'Add' within the pop-up to add a new customer on the go, before carrying on with adding the other booking details, and without having to leave the 'Add booking' pop-up.
March 1st, 2022 Adding multiple resources to a booking
When adding a resource to a booking, we've now made it possible to add multiple resources at once. Simply click the "Add resource" button and then choose all of the resources you want to add from the drop-down list and they'll all be added in one go. When working with a booking sequence, you can even choose to add all of your selected resources to the entire booking sequence!
February 24th, 2022 Adding adhoc dates to a Booking sequence
When adding a Booking, we've added an "Add date" button, which allows you to add additional adhoc dates to your booking sequence that are not part of a repeating date pattern. These adhoc dates can be added alongside a repeating pattern, giving complete freedom over the dates within your sequence.
February 23rd, 2022 Improved booking clash visualisation
We've pushed live an update that improves how we show booking resources that have a clash. When viewing your booking's resources, you'll spot a yellow block showing you how a resource clashes with another booking - just click on the resource to see full details.
February 11th, 2022 Improving password security
We've improved our security checks when a user sets a new password and now prevent passwords that have been part of a public data breach from being used. If a user attempts to set a password that has been compromised on another website, they will now see an error message saying "This password is listed on a database of known compromised passwords and is not considered to be secure. Please choose a different password.".
February 7th, 2022 The 'new look' Bookings module
We've updated the Bookings module to make the process of adding, managing and viewing bookings easier and quicker. Adding bookings is now more intuitive and granular, plus there's a 'new look' resource Planner and booking 'view' page.
