What's new

Text messaging and new Communication menu option

Increase member engagement with our improved Text messaging feature. Formerly known as the Text Notification Service (TNS), we've simplified the name and moved it to a new location in the admin view. Now you'll find text messaging and email controls all in one place when you select Communication in the sidebar menu.

Improved user experience for Billing

We're working hard to give our WildApricot customers more control over their Billing settings. For this release, a specific group of clients have been selected to pilot a new Billing user interface. 

For those participating in the pilot release, the Organization address will become read-only in Account > Organization > Organization details but can be edited by selecting Change customer info in Account > Billing.

Feature enhancements

Changes to Dashboard

We've adjusted the order in which widgets are displayed on the admin Dashboard, informed by our analysis of usage statistics. The most-referenced widgets will now appear at the top.

Getting started page removed from admin view

We've improved the user experience in the admin view of your account by removing the Getting started page and enhancing the Help & Support and Dashboard features to take its place. If you previously saved the Getting started page in your browser, be sure to update your bookmarked or favorited link to the new Dashboard page.

API improvements

Numeric fields support

We’ve released a new version of the API (2.3) in support of our new Number field type. In the new version, the Number field type (FieldType) is recognized as a numeric value rather than a text (string) value.

Ability to join waitlist in the Members API

The /EventRegistrations endpoint now receives an extra field in the request model: “ForWaitList” (Boolean). If true, the server ignores any registration limit checks and creates a waitlist registration, as long as a waitlist is permitted in the event's settings.

Support for integrations in Zapier 

In preparation for the beta integrations available in Zapier, contact domain event and webhooks have been modified to add details about the type of action performed on a contact. We send the event ContactModified with parameters for each of the following actions: Created, Deleted, and Changed.
