Attention: We are pleased to announce the new iMIS Developer Resources website. Thh new site has replaced this legacy iMIS Community and includes standards and guidelines, best practices, and how to articles on developing iMIS applications. You will also find a new Developer Community where you can add blogs or contribute to discussions. If you are an active client or partner, you already have access to the site. If you cannot access the new site, please submit a ticket to Technical Support. The site can be accessed from the Client Global Support Portal (Support > Resources > iMIS Developer Resources).

Given our transition to the new iMIS Developer Resources site, this legacy iMIS Community site has been officially deprecated to a read-only archive as of December 31, 2016. After a one year sunset period (effective December 31, 2017), all page requests to the original archive will redirect to the new site. If you have any suggestions or articles you’d like for us to post, please contact

Formula query

Not sure this in the relevant section but happy to move it if it is.

I produce reports every couple of weeks to show new membership and membership renewals. These are mostly correct but we do have some anomalies and I've been trying to resolve this, with some progress.

We are currently using Crystal Reports 9 and one of the lines of formula is: if {Subscriptions.BEGIN_DATE} >= DateAdd ('m', -2, {?StartDate}) then '*' else '';

iMIS Community going away?

It's been announced that iMIS Community will be frozen at the end of the year, and will be retired at some point in the future. I find this very discouraging, as I refer to the site about 4-5 times a week. There's a wealth of important knowledge here that doesn't seem to exist in the documentation. (The docs even refer to this site in places.)

There's not a lot of new activity, but I'm not sure that's a good measurement of its usefulness. The posts that are already here cover a lot of important fundamentals. Some main areas that I visit often:

RiSE Website with background video playing

Running iMIS

I am redesigning my website in RiSE and my graphics designer would like to add a background video to the homepage only. Has anyone done this in RiSE and would be willing to give me some pointers? Not sure how to do this if it is even possible.

The video needs to run with no sound and be the width of the site. The site is in a responsive Template - London_Responsive. I would like this to eat up the top part of the page and then if the homepage goes further than the video does on the height, place a simple background image there. All the rest of the pages should be without the video.

Hyperlink IQA results to another IQA

Running iMIS

I am looking to see if you can hyperlink results of an IQA to another IQA. I have an automated email that I have sent to me telling me of potential issues in the data in my iMIS instance. I want to turn that daily email into a dashboard in WebView where I can click on the results of the error value and be taken to an IQA that has those specific results. Here is a snippet of what I am looking at right now for data coming to me:

Renewal Fees description on Cart Invoice


Using Pay Dues ASI standard ipart, we are able to add an invoice to user cart with dues product and subscription products.
But the shopping cart invoice description text displaying as "Renewal Fees". We want to add general text instead of Renewal Fees. Any Idea where we can apply this change?

Please review screen-shot.


Tracking IMIS Users page access

We recently have had some issues with a user that accessed areas of our website that we did not want them to have access to and make changes. 

From what I can tell is when a REST or SOAP call is used with ASI.Scheduler it says the change was done by the MANAGER so hoping to figure out a way to track the Users access to regular web pages and find any unusaly activity.  We had them secured with IP security which did not help so trying to at least track the users browsing activity might point us to the compromised accounts.

Can the event calendar IPART be given maximum height?



Is it possible to set a fix height on the Events Calendar iPART based on the Telerik Sceduler Control?


We have it running in responsive on page.


4 x 4 x 4


In the right hand clolumn. While this resizes well we find the that the height remains stretched we only want the calendar to show at 400px high maximum.

Data formatting

I've recently started using IQAs. One thing I'm trying to resolve is the formatting of the date, data, for example, if I run a report with a thru date column, this also includes a times stamp of 00:00:00. I image that somewhere within iMIS I'll be able to amend this to just the date format but I can't see where. Has anybody else been able to resolve this?

Thanks in advance.


IQA to pull street addresses for orgs: which business object(s) should I use?

With as much as I've learned about IQA in iMIS, I'm at a loss for how to pull street addresses for our members. We use office addresses as the default, but we also conduct visits to our members' physical addresses which, of course, do not include PO boxes. I've added street addresses for each member organization, but I'm unable to figure out how to write a query to pull them. Any idea which business object(s) I should be using to make this happen?

Shop and News pages from Quick Start Sites - Why don't they function like you would expect?

We are currently building a site on iMIS 20 and I've been very disappointed in what ASI advertises as "Quick Start Sites". The previous employee in my role purchased iMIS and had expected to use the templates site with minimal customization. Since I have been hired on the project, it's clear to me that really isn't possible. I am not a web-developer, I'm a web designer with a pretty good knowledge of html and css, but customizing this seems way over my head.
