We added a bunch of new things to eAdventist in December but wanted to keep them wrapped until we were sure they were “keepers”. They all are, so you can go ahead and open them now!
1. Duplicate alert
You’ve always had the Duplicate Search, but now eAdventist checks for other families with the same address every time you open a Person’s record. Any duplicates are displayed as an alert, so you can decide whether they need fixing or not.
2. Grab a nonmember
eAdventist has made transfers so easy that it feels inconvenient having to ask other clerks for nonmember children to be moved. Now you’ll see a “grab” icon that lets you move them yourself. Easy peasy!
3. Transfers – icons & help
The Transfers page packs a lot of information, so we’ve introduced some new icons.
When you hover over an icon, your cursor will change to a “?”. That means you can click on the icon for help.
4. Email address warning
If eAdventist sends an email message to you that “bounces”, it won’t send any further messages until the problem is fixed. If this happens to your account, eAdventist will show a warning when you sign in.
To see the error message, click on “more information”.
5. Multi-select for Occupations
Need to let your medical professionals know about a mission trip? Or let your construction pros know about a service opportunity? The “Occupation” field in Person Labels now lets you select multiple occupations. It also searches the list as you type.
6. Include images in Mailing List messages
Add photos, graphs or banners to the messages you send with Mailing Lists. An article with more information on this coming soon.
7. Hi-res photos for Organizations
When you add a photo of your church or school, eAdventist now saves it in 2 sizes – “original” (up to 1024×768) and “thumbnail” (160×120).
8. Community forum
Ever wanted to ask other clerks or pastors a question? Or share a great idea with them? Now you can in the new Community forum – community.eadventist.net. It’s connected to your eAdventist account, so you use the same email and password to sign in. You can download the Discourse app from the App Store or Google Play Store to access the Community from your phone or tablet. More information about the Community coming soon.
Happy New Year from our team!
