Check out what's new in the Altru May 2020 release!
We've been listening to the unique challenges your organizations face as you continue to navigate the unprecedented COVID-19 situation. You asked for the ability to extend memberships as a way to remain engaged with your members and start conversations around renewals and donations. In response, we quickly re-prioritized technical resources to create the Blackbaud Altru Membership Utility.
The utility can be used to extend the expiration dates of multiple memberships at once. Choose which records to update, how long to extend expiration dates, and how many records to update at a time.
You can now issue partial refunds for event packages, such as to retain a cancellation fee for a patron who can no longer attend, or to credit a member who didn't receive their discount. When you choose to refund an order that contains an event package, in the Refund column, enter the specific amount to refund.
Credit card payments entered through Group Sales reservations are now processed through the Blackbaud Checkout payment form, and you can indicate if a physical card is present.
For those of you with the general ledger enabled, we've added a new output format designed for use with the Journal Entry Batch Creator Excel Add-In for Blackbaud Financial Edge NXT.
