ChMS (Elvanto) NEW - Contact Group Leader via the Group Finder!
new
improved
ChMS
Hello everyone! We have another improvement to share with you surrounding the Group Finder!
Contact Group Leader Button
- Before this update, when someone found a group via the Group Finder, they only had the option to join the group. With the new update, a person will now have a new button to reach out to the group leader to ask questions before joining!

On top of that, all communication will be done within Elvanto. No emails of the person asking the question or the group leader will be shared to ensure privacy between the two.
Here is a link to a new KB article to check out how it all works!
That is it for now! Please don't hesitate to reach out to our Support Team at Tithe.ly at support@tithe.ly for any questions or help you need! We are always happy to assist you :)
ChMS (Elvanto) NEW - Multiple Volunteer Reminders, Conditional Form Heading/Sub-Headings/Descriptions, and Redirect Countdown After Form Submission
improved
ChMS
On top of working on our People-Elvanto Sync (our biggest focus right now), our team was still able to get a few smaller updates done Elvanto recently!
New Improvements
>
Multiple Volunteer Reminders
- Instead of only being able to add one reminder for your volunteers who are rostered on to serve, you can now add an unlimited amount using a new blue button in that area as shown below:

Conditional Form Heading/Sub-headings/Descriptions
- Building upon our more recent Conditional Form Fields release a couple of months ago, you can now make entire sections of as form conditional by also setting conditions on the headings or description if needed.

Redirect Countdown After Form Submission
- Before this update, if you set a website for people to be redirected to after submitting a form, it would without warning redirect to the site. Now, there is a little countdown to let people know they are being redirected and that their form submission was successful.

ChMS (Elvanto) NEW- Conditional Form Fields, Submission Limits for Standard Forms, and Embeddable Group Finder!
new
improved
fixed
ChMS
The Elvanto team has been very busy these last couple of months with both new improvements to our existing features and several bug fixes!
New Improvements to our Forms and Group Finder
We are pleased to announce that we have two new improvements to our Forms area and one for our Group Finder!
They include the following:
>
Conditional Form Fields
- Instead of having the same set of questions for every layout, you can now have certain fields hidden unless a specific answer is given to make them visible!
image
Please refer to the new section about this in our existing article (which also has a video!): https://help.tithe.ly/en/articles/2426818-working-with-forms-how-to-create-and-edit-a-form
>
Submission Limits for Standard Forms
- Up until now, you were only able to set a limit of submissions by using a registration form, linking that form to an event, and setting a ticket limit. Now, there is a new setting on standard forms that will allow you to set a limit for submissions without having to use Events!

Please refer to the new section about this in our existing article: https://help.tithe.ly/en/articles/2426818-working-with-forms-how-to-create-and-edit-a-form
>
Embeddable Group Finder
- Lastly, up until now you could only make the Elvanto homepage accessible to Guests and refer them to Elvanto to use the Group Finder in the Elvanto website. Now if you visit your Group Finder settings, you will find iFrame code to embed directly onto a website!

ChMS (Elvanto) - New Built-in Financial Reports
new
improved
ChMS
We are pleased to announce that we have three new built-in reports in our Financial area!
Screen Shot 2021-05-06 at 4
They include the following:
Donors By Method
- This report shows people who did or did not donate via a chosen method. This will allow you to filter by cash, check, etc., and it will give you the people information about those who use the chosen method. If you would like to see the transaction information, you can now filter by method in our existing Batches report as well!
Top Givers
- This report displays a specified number of individuals with the highest donation amounts over a period of time. You can enter in whatever number you like for the limit (top 10, 20, 100, etc.), and it will give you a list of those who gave the largest amounts within your selected date range.
Donors By Number of Gifts Given
- This report displays givers who have given for the Nth time during the time period. It is similar to the existing New Givers report which allows you to see who gave for the first time within a selected date range. This report will do the same thing, but for the second, third, etc. gift within the selected date range.
For your future reference
here is a link to our existing article about our Built-in Financial reports that has been updated with videos
explaining each of these new reports in greater detail: Managing the Numbers // Elvanto Built-In Reports
