Summer '21 Changelog

This is a list of every change made in the Summer '21 release of Nimble AMS. To view a list of only major features in the latest release, head next door to our new features.

Nimble AMS Staff View

What's new?

Added override capability to validation rule for recurring payments

Nimble AMS recurring orders functionality did not allow recurring orders that had an unpaid balance. That is still the default logic but in addition we have now added the option to recur staff selected orders even when they have a balance to be paid off. This option is primarily provided for cases where you want to allow someone to recur their membership even when they have an unpaid balance on their previous membership order, because either you expect them to pay that off later, or you have not yet decided to write it off.  Staff can select the schedules that should recur order and ignore the balance on original order, by checking the Ignore Balance field on the recurring schedule. (AMS-12159)

Now you can see expiration month and year on payment record details

After processing a credit card payment through the One Payment wizard, you will now see the expiration month and year on the payment record detail page. (AMS-12064)

Improved ACH payment processing handling to support two-phase authorization and capture.

Previously, we used to charge ACH payment before submitting the order, so it caused issues when the order failed to submit but the payment was still charged. So now it only authorizes the payment before submitting the order, and then the payment will be captured after the order submits. This will help to staff users if something goes wrong, they won't need to manually refund the payment. (AMS-12068)

New Nimble AMS Configuration App

Configuration settings which are typically found in the Nimble AMS package configure area, are now available in the Nimble AMS Configure App.  The new configuration app features a logic-driven display based on settings needed during configuration, providing users with a faster and more intuitive experience.  In-app help text is also available now to provide users with clear settings details.

Defects Fixed

Fixed an issue impacting the ability to refund an ACH payment in staff view

While performing an ACH refund with BluePay, through the Nimble AMS order process, some users received an Invalid Documentation Type error. We have corrected this issue and ACH refunds can be processed without issue. (CBBP-140 & CBBP-141)

Now Cancel Membership pop-up is set to its default end date and refreshes every time

Previously, there was an error observed when we select the past dates on the Cancel Membership pop-up, the selected end dates were not refreshing after closing the pop-up. Now, the Cancel Membership pop-up refreshes every time with the default end date. (AMS-12131)

Resolved intermittent error on Community Hub's express checkout page

Users experienced an intermittent "Index out of bounds: 0" error message on Community Hub's express payment checkout page due to cart items for membership and donation, when the cart item for donation did not contain cart item lines prior to the page being loaded.  After the fix users will no longer encounter this issue on Community Hub's express payment checkout page. (AMS-12172) 

Fixed an issue applying coupons prior to tax calculation with Advanced Taxation enabled

Previously, users were unable to submit orders with coupons through the staff view order processor when using Advanced Taxation.  Now, users will see discounts applied before the tax is calculated with Advanced Taxation enabled. (AMS-12134)

Now update a cancelled membership cart without error

Resolved an error preventing Adjustment Carts from being submitted after using the Cancel All Cart Items link in the Staff View Checkout process. (AMS-12232)

Note: The original issue only impacted orgs with a large number of Imported Membership records that are not linked to orders. 

Clicking the Add Orders button on the One Payment wizard will no longer cause an error, if unpaid orders are not available.

Fixed an error in the One Payment wizard that occurred when clicking the button to add orders when to an account that has no unpaid orders. (AMS-12184)

Deferred schedule dates for Coupon now match the date of Membership on the scheduled forecast

Previously, deferred schedule for coupons was using the scheduled dates set by the frequency on the record. Now, deferred schedule for coupons is using the Membership deferred schedule dates. (AMS-12133)

Now Bulk Billing Membership respects Term Overrides

Fixed an issue preventing Cash Bills for Memberships from utilizing Term Overrides on Membership Type Product Links. (AMS-12228)

Update to Order API for two phase authorization

Previously, ACH payments were not being captured for stored payments. After the fix, the Order API is updated for the two phase authorization when supported by the payment gateway. (AMS-12287)

Bulk Credit Card payments made error free

We have improved the bulk capture of credit card payments to avoid errors due to a large number of SOQL queries being used by Nimble AMS. This will prevent errors when you make credit card payments in bulk. (CBBP-146)

Now add a second chapter by editing an existing order

Resolved an error preventing Chapters products from being added to an existing order. (NAMS-382)

Fixed an issue for Community Hub reset password email

You can now easily clone a Community Hub without error. (NC-6080) 

Schedule A Payment Button is now only displayed on Community Hub’s My Orders page for valid accounts
