Portal - November 2012

Event Registration Process
  • Enhanced user experience when registering for events online
  • When a user is logged in, the sign-up form will have a dropdown list of all members of that user's household so they can populate the form with the click of a button
  • When the user goes to the checkout form, they will be able to populate the final form based on any event registration in their cart. If they are authenticated, they can also choose to populate their own information (this is the default when the user is logged in)
My Events - *new*
  • Users can now see which events for which they've registered and can either confirm their attendance or notify event organizers that they will not be able to attend
Event Calendar
  • Events assigned to the "Churchwide" congregation will be displayed no matter which specific congregation is chosen from the dropdown menu. This feature can be disabled via a configuration value.
  • Removed the "dot" in front of each calendar item and wrapped each item in a <li> element for improved skinning possibilities
    • ul.mpp_calendarDayEvents { ... }
      li.mpp_calendarEventItem { ... }

My Groups
  • When a group leader creates a group event, the "Event Title" now honors the max field length in MinistryPlatform
