Today we have released an enhancement to allow the creation of custom team member types which increase the flexibility of the type of roles a trip needs to be successful. Each role can have its own application, own background check requirement, references requirement and can be considered invite only so they do not show up publicly to apply for.
Focus Missions give administrators the ability to make several actions with trip transactions. One of the most common actions is the transfering or assigning of funds. Because this is a heavily used feature, we decided to allow you to do these actions with unallocated trip funds! This functionaity to improve your efficiency and effectiveness. Starting December 1, 2019, donations made to the overall trip will be designated as unallocated funds, meaning they have not been assigned to any particular team member. These funds may be added to any participant's account manually by the trip's administrator or be used at the organization's discretion.
Today is an exciting day at Focus where we get to finally reveal some UX changes we have been working on along side a great new feature we are calling Reserved Seats.
We couldn't be more excited to launch our new feature Requirement Reminders! Within Focus Missions, this feature is the linchpin of our self provisioning approach to trip management. Participants will now be reminded when they are past the due dates you have set for their requirements.
As we strengthen the relationship between Focus Missions and MinistryPlatform, we continue to find new ways to help with syncing data between the two systems. Today we are able to announce that we now provide a way to track general donations to the trip and transfers between team members and trips to MinistryPlatform.
Focus Missions has done our very best to dive down every rabbit hole in missions trip management to hopefully think of ways to make your trip management experience more manageable.
