You may have noticed over the past few months some of the enhancements we’ve made to the system. Here’s an outline of some of the cool stuff we’ve been up to lately (and as the title suggests, we’re not done yet! We have some very exciting improvements currently in development, which we’ll be launching before the end of the summer and announcing on this blog.
But here’s what we’ve done so far this spring:
Improved security by enforcing temporary passwords
Whenever a new member logs in for the first time or resets their password, they are now forced to change their password the next time they log in. This improves overall system security for everyone in your organization.
Automatically send login instructions to new members
In the dark ages of Best Attendance, group leaders who added members to the system had to make up passwords for each member, and then find a way to let those members know what their new passwords were. We have greatly improved this process. Best Attendance now gives you the option of automatically creating a temporary password for new members and sending login instructions.
Improvements to member import
We’ve always had a great import system, allowing you to easily import members from other software. But now, we’ve made it even easier. If there are any errors in the import file, we now show you exactly what those errors are, and if you make a mistake, you can now simply undo the import and try again. Cool, huh?
Improvements to Group Texting
We’ve made investments to our texting system infrastructure, giving us more bandwidth, and giving you the peace of mind that your text messages will be delivered, no matter how big the group is that you’re sending it to. Also, we now allow all group leaders and administrators to send text messages (in the past, this function was restricted to the Account Owner). Many organizations have asked for a way to purchase additional text credits on top of the 300 free monthly credits that come with your subscription. And now you can!
It’s the Little Things
And we’ve done a ton of other stuff to make your daily use of Best Attendance more pleasant. We’ve added a “Select All” option to the group checkboxes, moved the location map right to the Event page, clarified some wording and improved some user flows. We believe that quality is in the details, and we think you’ll like some of these smaller changes that we’ve made.
