Focus Missions give administrators the ability to make several actions with trip transactions. One of the most common actions is the transfering or assigning of funds. Because this is a heavily used feature, we decided to allow you to do these actions with unallocated trip funds! This functionaity to improve your efficiency and effectiveness. Starting December 1, 2019, donations made to the overall trip will be designated as unallocated funds, meaning they have not been assigned to any particular team member. These funds may be added to any participant's account manually by the trip's administrator or be used at the organization's discretion.
We are excited to bring you an enhancement for admins to allow them to move team members from one trip to another. Historically this would be accomplished by adding the team member to another trip, manually move funding and then remove the member from the initial trip.
In the spirit of Valentine's Day with our love for our churches and on improving, the team at Focus is really excited about a feature set to release next week. There is now the option to allow donors to continue to donate to the team member social fundraising page, even after the team member has reached their funding goal. The donor will continue to make donations to the team member, and in the back-end the transaction will be allocated appropriately while still showing the correct information to the team member so the team member can continue to thank their supporters.
Today is an exciting day at Focus where we get to finally reveal some UX changes we have been working on along side a great new feature we are calling Reserved Seats.
Today we are releasing our first iteration of in depth look at the health of your missions' organization with our introduction of Megaboards. Megaboards is detailed and opinionated insights into your trips / donations / participation.
We couldn't be more excited to launch our new feature Requirement Reminders! Within Focus Missions, this feature is the linchpin of our self provisioning approach to trip management. Participants will now be reminded when they are past the due dates you have set for their requirements.
As we strengthen the relationship between Focus Missions and MinistryPlatform, we continue to find new ways to help with syncing data between the two systems. Today we are able to announce that we now provide a way to track general donations to the trip and transfers between team members and trips to MinistryPlatform.
Focus Missions has done our very best to dive down every rabbit hole in missions trip management to hopefully think of ways to make your trip management experience more manageable.
