ActivityRight Release Notes 1/2020


·         Add -Remove Students:   Refined process for add and remove students.  Changed flow for payments and refunds in this add and remove process.  Added the ability to generate a report list of current attendees.

·         Parent & Staff Shared Login:  Allowing staff who are also parents to easily navigate between the two profiles in ActivityRight.

·         My Ed BC & Maplewood Unique ID:  These student information system programs are unable to provide a unique ID to remove the reliance on user email as this email address is subject to change and would tie the profile to the old email and require a new account with no historical data. Added the ability to assign the unique ID and tie it to the record. Display school name and address in bank deposit slip screen and display bank account # optionally by including account number in bank account set up screen.  





·         Cash & Check Deposit Slips: Added the ability to enter the cash quantity for each denomination and its total before printing.  Also added check number in check deposit slip.
