Join us during our Documentation Dash (remote sprint) on Sunday 27th July and Monday 28th July to help get the new edition of the User and Administrator Guide ready for release at the same time as the stable version of 4.5.
One of the requirements in a project I am working at the moment was that the client wanted to enter when an adress becomes active. E.g. a member says he is moving by the 1st July 2015 (which is in the future). From that moment the member should be contacted by that address and till that moment the old address is the active address.
I have created an extension which achieve this. This extension is in beta and can be found on (https://github.com/CiviCooP/org.civicoop.futureaddress).
We've just added a page detailing CiviCRM's security policy and release process.
This page is intended to help people identify how they can stay abreast of security updates, know when to expect them, and how to tell which release of CiviCRM to expect security fixes for.
If you maintain or operate a CiviCRM site (or sites!) then you this is a page you should be familiar with, and there are a few actions you should take -
Down here in Bristol, we’ve been putting more bones on the video project and talking to lots of people who want to be involved, so we thought we would give you an update on how things are progressing and what we need from the community at this point in helping developing the plans for the future.
At the recent Dalesbridge sprint, members of the documentation team updated the user and administration book.
We included new features for 4.4, expanded on some previously under-documented areas and re-organised some content to make things easier to find.
The new version of the book has now been published at http://book.civicrm.org/user/.
Example Use Case
This example is a one event page which has tabs of many types of content and views attached which allows a anonymous user to view the info, see registered participants, register for the CiviCRM event via one webform which also automatically creates a contact, membership, active drupal user, and participant event registration to the event, logs in the user, and sets his user entered password via text field on the webform. Skvare has developed similar solutions for clients using these methods.
Returning to CiviCRM videos after some time on other projects, the team at Circle Interactive are now starting to think again about developing a CiviCRM community video project based on the ideas in Young Jin’s blog of Feb 2012.
For some time i've been trying to make my organisations contact list accessible outside of CiviCRM. Why you may ask?
Well, mainly convenience, but also for reducing duplication, maintaining a personal address book, an organisational address book and a CRM will mean inconsistent information, duplicates, contacts in one place and not the other etc. On the convenience side of things, it means potentially having access to your CiviCRM contacts in your email program, phone and many other places LDAP can be utilised.
