WCM/Public View Product Images

Does anyone have any recommended image sizes for the product images displayed in the WCM/Public View shop? Nothing jumps out from the documentation, and I'd be interested in seeing what has been done in other implementations.

Word merge letters - Search parameter default source

I have modified the Main Tables, Search and Report Fields parameters in Report Specs for a Word letter.

When a user wants to copy and modify this letter, they do "Save As" within the iMIS letter system. When iMIS creates the new entry in Report_Desc then it takes the Main Tables information from the letter being copied. However, it takes the Search and Report Fields information from elsewhere in iMIS.

I have found where the Report Fields value comes from; it is in System_Params where ParameterName = 'FR_Control.WordMergeFields' (FR for fundraising).

However, I cannot tack down where the Search value is being pulled from.

Remove notifications for subscribed communities

How can you remove the notification feature in Communities? Users are very annoyed every time someone makes an edit in a community they are getting an email. Some users are getting 10 to 15 email notifications every time a forum topic is posted.

I cant find anywhere in iMIS to stop automatic notifications. This is for subscribed users to a community.

Smart Control to Business Object Data Source binding question


I've been reading documentation found here concerning the SmartControl and Business Objects.  I've read about writing typed classes to represent the BO. 

I'm primarily interested in binding the smart control to the CsContact business object.  I see I can accomplish a lot of the coding in conjunction with

I'm just looking for a little clarification on what smart control properties need to be set  in order for the binding to work.   I understand there is a BoundPropertyName

eSeries with 15.2

We have a customer with a heavily customised eSeies 10.6. They want to upgrade to 15.2 then transition the custom eSeries functions to iParts. Has anyone found it possible to connect a 10.6 eSeries install to work with iMIS 15, without upgrading the eSeries?

iQA to display 'online' registrats for an event?


I've just started using iQA's to make life of data entry staff a lot easier. But it'll be great if I could have some help from the pros.


We are looking to display only registrants who have registered online for a particular event. I'm sure there's no out of the box report in iMIS but I tried to look around for BOs that might do this and after some help.

Retrieving data from the Documentmain.blob

Has anyone retrieved data from the documentmain.blob field?

I have a client that would like to pull the data from this field into another website.

Just interested in the level of effort to do this.


iMIS PK error generated in Pre Posting Accrual dues stagewhile Dues Billing.

I noticed that the PK error was due to the process not generating a IN AR line item for an ID but creating it in the next transaction number. In the next transaction number the value for line ID was twice that of what it should be.

To explain further, we are billing 10 line items, based on special prices. Process picks up all ten items in insert statement but does not add the 11th line as the IN AR line to give total due. Then next ID transaction number is correct from 1 to 10 line numbers but has a IN AR item with line number as 21 and not 11.
