  1. From your settings page, open the settings tab and hit the “Edit Landing Page” button.  This will open the landing page editor.

NEW: Submit new (anonymous) profiles with Adjace!

Many using Adjace have been looking for a way to allow visitors or new members to add their own profile information or to check in, and then synchronize that new profile information up to Planning Center.  We are happy to announce that Adjace subscribers are now able to accept new (anonymous) profiles.  Simply check the appropriate box on your Adjace settings tab and then send folks your new profiles link!  When folks go to the new profiles link they will be prompted for name, address, phone number, and e-mail address.

When they submit the new profile, it will go into your approval queue where you can edit it and then approve or reject it for synchronization up to Planning Center.

NEW: Keep Planning Center People up to date with Adjace

Many of you using Adjace have been asking for the ability to allow member self-service.  We said “Yes!”  and this feature is now live!  Adjace subscribers can allow all of their folks who have access to their church’s Adjace to update their own profile, or their family members’ profiles.

Now, many of you also said, “What about quality control?” Well, any profile updates that users submit will be placed into an approval queue where a church administrator will approve or deny the update.  Every time your Adjace is synchronized with your Planning Center People, all approved profile updates will be automatically synchronized and just like magic, your people are up to date!

Ask Deft Flux: How do I format money using knockout.js

We have recently benefited from using knockout.js to add richness to some of our web application forms.  Once our view model is bound, the library allows us to update text on the form dynamically and easily.  Naturally, it wasn’t long before someone asked, “How do I format money using knockout.js?”  Some folks had some partial answers and some folks had some answers that didn’t work.  It was particularly challenging to deal with users selecting partial fields, negative amounts, and what not, so we rolled our own knockout extension.  We wouldn’t say our answer is perfect, but we think it is a fair compromise that works with the major browsers.  Behold, the jsFiddle for money formatting in knockout.

Ask Deft Flux: What Does Epicor Error 7175/7224 Mean?
