Coming in 2019.01: Changing Data Type for form lines

Have you ever changed your mind when designing a survey or a CB Form? Have you ever created a form line and then users wanted you to change it to something else?

A lot of time it involves changing the data type. With 2019.01, you will be able to do this without having to delete and re-create the entire line.

Read Project 99267.

DSOG

Attention all DSOG members: We have been working with United Way Worldwide to understand the requirements for the Shared Data Record (SDR) and how data is to be pulled from Andar. As we understand it, many United Ways are struggling with this and spending a lot of time preparing their SDR for upload into DSOG.

We are proposing to build a one-click report to pull your unique data ready for DSOG upload. We are also working with UWW to automatically upload this data electronically into DSOG, and soon, to receive data from DSOG to update Andar.

We would maintain this new SDR report to reflect the quarterly changes implemented by UWW.

We believe it wasteful and extremely time-consuming to have every United Way do this on their own and we would recommend pooling resources to build a better, less expensive solution to be used by all.

If you are interested, please contact Real Bedard at Real.Bedard@AndarSoftware.com

For those of you needing assistance with your custom DMOs and queries, please contact Darryl Langman, our Director of Customer Care, at (877) 479-3780 x335, and he will be happy to setup a project to perform this work.

SalesForce Integration

Did you know that we have started building a native live integration between Andar and SalesForce? No middleware needed, no developers required. Synchronize your accounts live automatically. We are currently scheduled to release a beta version in January and the first release in June. If you are interested in partnering with us please e-mail Real.Bedard@Andar360.com

Alert - Tomcat

New in Service Pack 2017.01: We are upgrading e-Community to use Tomcat 8.5.

Tomcat is the software that sits between Andar and the internet. It’s used by Andar e-Community (including e-Pledge, A&O, e-Volunteer, i-Attend, and i-Access).

You will not be able to run the new Andar release on the older Tomcat 6.
You will not be able to run Andar 2016.02 or older on the new Tomcat 8.5.
You can have both Tomcat versions installed on the same server.

Start planning now, we are working on instructions that will be published and attached to project 99309 in the next week.

Upgrade Service:  For those of you needing assistance with the upgrade, we can do the upgrade for you for a small fee.  Please call our help desk (877-479-3780) to schedule your upgrade.
