I've had a few requests from clients recently with queries around updating contact details and permissions with the new GDPR data protection legislation coming into force in Europe in May.
As a result I've developed two very simple extensions which I'd like to share:
This extension provides a simple UI under the contact summary via Actions->Contact Checksum.
When opened a simple UI is displayed with information and example links to use in emails when sending personalised / "update your details" links from CiviCRM.
I'm please to announce the release of a new Smart Debit extension for CiviCRM 4.7.
The new extension is based on the vedaconsulting (https://vedaconsulting.co.uk) extensions for previous releases of CiviCRM but is rewritten and includes a number of new features and enhancements. Development and Testing has been funded by Circle Interactive (https://circle-interactive.co.uk) and implemented by MJW Consulting (https://www.mjwconsult.co.uk).
In CiviCRM you can configure a membership to auto-renew, provide the option
or not auto-renew. However, this was not used for the self-signup contribution pages.
Well, from 4.7.19 it is respected and you can easily create membership contribution pages which force auto-renew. (See CRM-20375).
When email was first designed, security was not considered important and up until fairly recently it was still possible to send an email from any address and get away with it.
