Theme Release v1.60

April 17, 2024

What's Changed

  • Admins can turn and and share user magic links by @kodinkat
  • Typeaheads: Sort users by last modified by @corsacca
  • Wildcard character compatibility for the rest API Whitelist by @prykon

Developer Changes

  • Disciple.Tools code now follows the prettier linting by @cairocoder01

  • Upgrade npm pacakges by @corsacca

Details

Admins can turn and and share User Magic Links

Previously you could only manage your own User Magic Links in your profile settings:

image

This new feature lets admins directly send users their User Magic Links so the user does not have to log in to Disciple.Tools first. We've added a new tile to the User's record (Settings Gear > Users > click on a user). Here you can see the selected user's magic links, enable them and send them the link.

image

Once a User Magic link is enabled, it will also show up on the user's contact record:

image

Typeaheads: Sort users by last modified

This is an upgrade In the cases where you are searching for a name that matches many contacts. Now the results show the most recently modified contacts first which often will show the contact you are searching for.

image

Wildcard character compatibility for the rest API Whitelist

By default Disciple.Tools requires all API calls to require authentication. This security measure helps guarantee no information is leaked. Some 3rd party plugins use the rest API for their functionality. This Whitelist is a space to give those plugins permission to use the rest API. This change is the ability to specify all the endpoints that match a pattern instead of listing them out individiually. Found in the WP Admin > Settings (D.T) > Security > API Whitelist.

Theme Release v1.58

List Map Upgrades - Open the list view of the records on your map.

Let's say you are looking to do an event and want to invite all of your contacts in a neighborhood or region to join. We've now made this process much simpler. Go to your contacts list. Choose all contacts or choose a custom filter that fits your use case. Then click the map icon in the top bar or click "Map List" in the List Exports tile on the left.

Screenshot 2024-03-14 at 3 58 20 PM

Zoom on the contacts you want to focus on. Here I'm going to zoom in on Span. The right panel will show the contacts in my zoomed window.

image

Next we'll click "Open Zoomed Map Records" to open the list view with just the contacts in your zoomed view. In my case this is all the records in Spain

image

If you wish, save this view to your custom Filters so you can open it up later

image

Note: for this feature make sure you have mapbox enabled. See Geolocation

Now. What if we wanted to send an email to this list to invite them to the event? See the next section.

Bulk Send a emails to your Contact list

Send an email to any list of Contacts in your Disciple.Tools site by going to Contacts and filtering the list the way you want it.

Screenshot 2024-03-15 at 11 43 39 AM

You'll come to a screen like this that allows you to edit a message that will be sent out. Note that there is no-reply address to this email. If you want a response back from your list of contacts then you will need to add an email address or a webform link to the body of the email address.

image

Whether you are using Disciple.Tools to manage a list of intercessors for a prayer campaign or to serve a group of disciples that you're wanting to train (or many other use cases), this new feature will be an upgrade for you. The Bulk Send Message feature is another way to communicate with those you are serving.

See more instructions here: https://disciple.tools/user-docs/features/bulk-send-messages/

  • all the records that match a specific value for your selected field
  • all the records that don't have your specific value in the selected field
  • all the records that have any value in the selected field
  • all the records that don't have any value set in the selected field

image

Performance mode

Some default D.T behaviors are nice, but can be slow on systems with a lot of contact and group records. This update introduces a setting to put D.T into "Performance Mode" which disables slow features. You'll find this setting in WP Admin > Settings (D.T) > General: image

The first feature that is disabled is the counts on contact and croup list filters. Enabling performance mode skips calculating those numbers. image

Disciple.Tools uses "Jobs" when a lot of actions need to happen. For example we want to send 300 users an email with a magic link. Since this might take a while, D.T will create 300 jobs to process and send the 300 emails. These jobs are processed in the background (using cron).

In this new page in WP Admin > Utilities (D.T) > Background Jobs you can see if there are any jobs waiting to be processed. And you can manually trigger them to be sent if you wish.
