Fall is here and we have been busier than a one-armed paper hanger in a wind storm - with new projects and new churches! Staying busy is good.

You may have noticed the on screen message that we were changing your database over to another server several days ago. This was not a simple project, but it was a seamless transfer. We did this in order to better serve our growing family of TouchPoint churches.

Also, Andrew attended the XP Metro Conference last week and met some of you there. It's always nice to run into our TouchPoint friends!

What you might have missed

New iPad Attendance for Registered Only

Read about this feature that displays only those that have registered for an event. This is used with the iPad Attendance method of taking attendance.

Email Recovery

Have you ever lost an email after working on it for a long time? If so, you you definitely want to learn about our new email recovery feature.

Compose Email on Mobile Devices

We know that many of you prefer composing TouchPoint emails on your phone, so you will be happy to learn that our text editor now supports that! 

Email Replacement Code for Pledges

Using these 2 new replacement codes, you can now notify your donors via email and let them know the amount they pledged and how much is still left until they fulfill that pledge. 

New Method for Creating a Sub-Group

You can now very easily create a new sub-group right inside the Member Dialog. This applies to one person or as many as you have filtered for on the Member tab of the organization.

What's Coming?

We have another project that we will tell you about in a blog post within the next few days. You will be interested in this, so be sure to either check the blog each day for anything new; or, better yet, subscribe so you will receive the post in your inbox.
