Church and conference clerks spend a lot of time on membership transfers, so we want the process to be as smooth and efficient as possible. Here is how they just got even smoother!
Where did my “vote” links go?
The first change you’ll notice is that (#1) the “vote” links are gone. Just click the “view” link to view or vote. Next, (#2) you now have the ability to filter the transfers list by last name and/or church – especially helpful for large conferences. Finally, (#3) the “Print Pending” button has been moved for a “cleaner” look.
Adding a request
No changes here.
Filtering the transfers list by name or church makes it easier to process an entire family or group. Your filter values “stick” until you change them or log out. NOTE: Filtering also helps you find past transfers since it ignores the “days to show” setting and searches back to the beginning of time (eAdventist time, that is).
The new “view”
The “view” link now takes you to a clear picture of the transfer process with (#1) a “Grant/Deny” or “Accept/Decline” button when it’s your turn to vote. (#2)”Withdraw” and “undo” links are easy to find and use.
Entering a vote
No changes here, either.
You just entered a vote…
This is where we have improved the “flow”. After entering a vote, you return to the “Transfer” screen where you can see the results of your changes with easy access to “undo” or the next voting step. Click the “Back to transfers” to choose another transfer.
The other big change is that (#1) the “Back to transfers” link returns to the same tab (e.g. “To grant”, “To accept”, “Completed”, “Withdrawn”) on the “Transfers” page that you started from. This makes it much easier to process a batch of transfers — an entire family, for instance. As a bonus, (#2) eAdventist no longer needs to automatically take you to the just-voted transfer’s new tab, so you spend less time waiting for the “Transfers” list to load.
That’s it. Essentially the same process with a few small but powerful changes to make transfers even easier to process. A big thank you to Susan Hess (Florida Conference) and Claudya Barrientos (Potomac Conference) for their help on this.
