Updates: 7/15/23

Hello Everyone!

Happy Fourth of July! Hope everyone has the opportunity for a summer vacation. Another month of updates here from the Compass-360 team. As always don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.


Parent Portal

The new Parent Portal is open to early adopters! We’re taking the feedback we get, and preparing for a general public release in three weeks.

Stage: late development

Program Category and Sub-Category

In collaboration with Girls Inc. National, this project will update the way categories and sub-categories are used in program templates. These updates will align better with Girls Inc. language and support better reporting on the programs offered/delivered by controlling the selectable values.

  • Category will be renamed to Core Essential Service
  • Sub-Category will be renamed to Topic
  • Change both fields from free-text to a multi-select drop down

Stage: late development

Program Templating

In part to the update to the category fields, some updates will be going into how Girls Inc. National can manage and distribute program templates to be used in your program schedules. This will allow for better reporting and a more efficient schedule design.

Stage: late development

Custom Registration Fields / Custom Forms

While we currently offer a solution for custom fields in the registration application, it has some drawbacks. This project will allow you to manage those custom fields. This is initially geared towards the release of the parent portal, but is being developed to allow for complete form creation, for any use, such as volunteer registration, supplemental waivers and more.

Stage: mid development

Help Docs & Change Logs

With the high amount of development in progress, a lot of changes are happening. In effort to better update our help docs and communicate the updates, we’re replacing our help docs which will come with a ton of new features.

  • Automatic change log and release notes
  • Updates to older documents to reflect the new features released over the last year
  • Better search and discovery

Stage: mid development

Cases In Progress

  • #19173 Intermittent barcode scanning issues. A specific flow was found that could cause a scanning error with the barcode scanner when an invalid barcode is read.

  • #19657 Preventing duplicate relationships which will reflect an incorrect balance due from the constituent sidebar. This happens when a person has multiple relationships with another, or a relationship with themselves.

  • #19495 Fixing images attached in emails. There was an update for this and was able to confirm images in emails are working. More investigation needs to be done to figure out how invalid images were added to the email builder. Text message images were not verified as it is not an existing feature. A new case will be created for that.

  • #19476 Fixing the publish dashboard button text when a dashboard is published

  • #19385 Add ability to cascade delete down a schedule, preventing ghost class records

  • #19307 Enforce volunteer qualifications on volunteer portal signup
