5.15 – To be released beginning on November 22, 2017


The 5.15 release will be published in batches over a space of a week to ensure stability. So, some changes may not appear on your account for up to 7 days after the release date.

The Version 5.15 release of Wild Apricot consists of the following changes.

Membership cards can now be printed by administrators

Administrators can now print membership cards, but only one at a time from the Membership tab of each member's contact record.

Events with waitlists now closed for registration when spaces become available

Now, if there are people are on a waitlist and space become available for a waitlisted event or registration type, public registration for the event or registration type will be automatically closed. This allows those on the waitlist to be registered for the event and prevents anyone else from snapping up the newly available spaces.

Link to registration type's waitlist appears even when empty

Registration types that have a waitlist enabled will be displayed within the list of registration types with a link to the waitlist, even if the waitlist if empty.

Previously, links to the waitlist were only displayed within the list of registration types if the waitlist had people in it.

Registrants can view and cancel their event registrations

Registrants can now view their event registrations from a new tab on their member profile called My registrations

By default, registrants can only view their event registrations. You can allow registrants to cancel their registrations by enabling the Allow cancellation option at the bottom of the registration type settings.

In this way, you can allow only registrants with particular registration types to cancel their own registrations. When you enable the Allow cancellation option, you can control how soon before the event cancellations can take place. For example, if you don't want cancellations in the week leading up to the event, you would specify 7 days. In that case, cancellations can take place 8 days before the event, but not 7 days before the event. If the number of days is not specified or set to zero, then cancellations will be allowed right up to the beginning of the event.

With the Allow cancellation option enabled, registrants can cancel their registration by clicking the appropriate row within their My registrations list then clicking the Cancel registration button from the registration details.

Cancelling a paid registration will automatically void the registration invoice and will generate a credit in the registrant's account.

Restrict file access to entire folders

You can now restrict access to folders, so that the access restrictions you choose will be applied to all files (and subfolders) in the folder. You can restrict access to folders from either the Files screen or when inserting a picture or document.

After setting access restrictions for a folder, you can override the inherited restrictions for any file in the folder.

Bug fixes

A number of bugs have been fixed, including but not limited to, the following:

  • Unable to edit a site page with member directory or featured member gadgets
  • Contact ID not among field options when exporting financial documents
  • Theme rebuilding fails when you preview a different theme or try to rebuild a theme after uploading files as part of a theme override
  • Member since field displayed the date when a member completed the application form rather than the date a member paid the application invoice
  • New renewal date is not updated correctly for lapsed members who are manually renewed
  • Pending-Level change membership status of bundle members is not changed after bundle admin activation
  • Unable to edit membership cards in Internet Explorer

Mobile 2.2 – October 20, 2017 (both iOS and Android)

Both the iOS and Android versions of the application were updated. The following features were added.

Ability to manage administrative rights

While editing a contact's profile, you can now assign or modify administrative privileges.

When you tap the Administrative access area, you can assign full or limited administrative privileges.

Ability to duplicate an event

You can now create a new event by duplicating an existing one. To duplicate an existing event, open the event then tap the action button in the upper right corner and select the Duplicate option from the menu that appears.

The new duplicate event will be saved as an admin-only event, and automatically opened for editing. The word (copy) will be appended to the name of the duplicate event to distinguish it from the original one.

All event settings will be duplicated, except event access permissions, multiple sessions, and the list of registrants. Event email settings will also be duplicated but cannot be modified using the Wild Apricot app.

New action menu for events

Within the Events module, the Edit option has been replaced by an action button which displays an action menu, consisting of EditDuplicate, and Delete options.

The Delete event option has been removed from the bottom of the Edit event screen.

Switch association without logging out

If there are multiple Wild Apricot accounts associated with your email address, you can switch to a different association by clicking the Change association button from the Account module.
