Open Access, ABC Signup-Style

Posted on Thu, January 1,2015 @ 11:54 AM

More fingers in the pot isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, providing easier access to ABC Signup drove our most recent enhancements – a new module that opens parts of the software to event facilitators, a new tab in the Setup portion of admin that connects users to ABC’s mobile admin site, and improvements to the mobile platform.

New Module Extends Access to Facilitators
The newest ABC Signup add-on allows facilitators limited access to ABC Signup via mobile and computer, enabling them to track attendance on-site and view other high-level information about the event.

The module doesn’t require a full-blown user license (though there is a fee), and it works on both computers and mobile devices. Through this module, event administrators can also send custom e-mails to facilitators who are attached to the event.

Easier Access, Tools on Mobile Site
Second, we’ve created tools within to make accessing the mobile site easier. There’s now a “Mobile Access” icon and link under the Standard tab of the Setup menu. Once you click that icon, you will see a link to the mobile admin site and have the opportunity to send an e-mail of the link to yourself and others with administrative privileges to access the newly expanded mobile tools.

Here are some of the other improvements to the mobile site:

  • event and registration lists will filter dynamically as you enter in search criteria;
  • when marking attendance, you have the option to check all or clear all at once instead of marking each individually; and
  • you can view an individual registration information from the attendance list instead of having to switch over to the registration list.

We encourage customers to take a look at the mobile site, use it with a specific event, and let us know what other features you would like to see us add to it.
