Make sure Digital Responders are created with correct access to sources

Since 1.10.0 creating a user with the Digital Responder role created a user without access to any contacts. The Digital Responder can be configured to only have access to certain contact Sources. New Digital Responders now have access to all Sources by default.
Access by sources Documentation:

Storing and updating extra meta on connection fields

We've expanded the D.T API to support adding and updating meta data on field connections. This will let us add a "Reason Subassigned" option when adding a contact in the "Sub-assigned to" field or extra data for each member of a group.

Add User Fields


Wokflows declared by plugins

In v1.11 of the Theme we released the ability for the user to create workflows. This allows the user to create a IF - THEN logic flows to help manage Disciple.Tools data. This features allows plugins to add pre-created workflows without necessarily enforcing their use. The Disciple.Tools Admin can choose to enable those that fit their needs the best. An example is the People Groups workflow which we've included in the theme.

People Groups Workflow

This workflow kicks in when adding members to a group. If the member has a people group, then the workflow automatically adds that people group to the group record as well. image people_group_workflow

Dev: Task Queuing

We've bundled in D.T a task queuing process for tasks that can be done in the background or for long processes that need to continue after a request has time out. This feature was made by the folks at Documentation can also be found on that page.
