5.8.3 – Released on November 1st, 2016

Version 5.8.3 is an interim update to Version 5.8 of Wild Apricot. The 5.8.3 update includes the following changes and bug fixes.

Changes

The following changes are included in this update.

Event list filters

You can now filter your event list by date, or use a Filter option to display only upcoming events, past events, or admin only events. 

The new Filter drop-down includes the following options:

OptionDescriptionSorting
AllAll events, regardless of date or visibilityFrom furthest in the future to furthest in the past
UpcomingAll upcoming events, except those set to admin onlyFrom soonest to furthest away
PastAll past events, regardless of visibilityFrom most recent to furthest in the past
Admin onlyUpcoming admin-only eventsFrom soonest to furthest away

The default filter is Upcoming. Previously, the event list displayed all events, both current and past. 

A multi-session event will be included in past events only when all its sessions have taken place. If any of the sessions are in the future, then the event will be included in the list of upcoming events.

Membership bundles

The following changes have been made to membership bundles:

  • You can now suspend or archive all the members of a bundle by suspending or archiving the bundle administrator. Previously, you have to suspend or archive all the bundle members one-by-one before you could suspend or archive the bundle administrator.
  • You can now archive a bundle administrator from the bundle administrator's contact record. Previously, the Archive button did not appear for bundle administrators.
  • A bundle administrator can now add a non-member contact who's already in your Wild Apricot database to their bundle.

Archive contacts option

The Archive button, which archives the currently filtered contacts within the Contacts module, has been renamed to Archive contacts. Previously, some clients thought the Archive button would display a list of archived contacts, rather than archive the currently displayed contacts.

As well, the confirmation dialog that appears after clicking the button has been simplified.

Banners instead of ads on selected free account sites

Free accounts that use a Whiteboard theme will feature a Wild Apricot banner instead of Google ads on their sites. Depending on the results, banners may be used in place of ads on other free account sites in the future.
