Custom Change Logging with Accurate User Info.

I am looking for options to create a change log and include the user who has updated the data, using a trigger or another method.
This is for additional fields that are not being logged by the standard iMIS change log.

At the trigger level, I am unable to get the individual user who is connected to the database because iMIS is connecting to the database with the same session user id each time. Is there a way to get the user level audit at the trigger level? In the past iMIS 10.6, this wasn't an issue so in the past I could log the entries using a trigger and the session user would reflect accurately who the person is who has changed or added the records.

Switching from Cash to Accrual Accounting

I need to switch my database from cash to accrual accounting. Our dues are on the calendar year, not anniversary. Should I wait until the end of the year to make the change or can I do it now? Thanks in advance!

Program Display iPart

Does anyone know how to default the Program display ipart to "View All" in Imis 20.0

I have looked into javascript to cheat it but cannot get anything to work as it rely's on an onchange event to change the view. Would be good if you could choose this in the ipart setup.


Calling the ATS Contact web service insertContactAddress() method gives messages about lookup/validation tables

Hi all,

We're on IMIS 20.1. From a classic ASP (!) page, I'm replacing the old IBO-calling logic with calling ATS's web services, in this case to insert a contact address (IMIS's Name_Address table). It's the insertContactAddress() method.
I went to ATS's ASMX page to test this method to make sure I'm on the right track... clicked on the method, typed in the address values, and clicked Invoke.

Imis Desktop Reload or Redirect

I have a custom control that I have added to the Desktop view navigation. When it is done I would like to reload the customer window or redirect it to a new ID. Any ideas?

Custom Payment Gateway for Desktop version OCX

I have successfully developed and implemented a new public payment gateway for provider DPS.
Now to complete the second part of the exercise - to integrate the OCX file with the iMIS desktop. It *should* be working but when I try to enter a sales transaction, I get the error - the custom gateway is not installed properly. Is there a setup step that I have missed? How does the imis desktop recognize that the ocx file is there?

Adding gift to SOA Cart

Any sample code on adding an gift to the SOA cart?

Ctrl F () - Find, Search by email doesn't return all the expected results.

While using the Search feature under Customers, I noticed that by selecting email and providing the first few letters in the equals box, it doesn't return all the desried results.  How does it work for email?  I'm guessing there is a like parameter used in the back end to pull the data.

Is there a better way to search by email address?  We are implementing a policy to enter your email so it would be advantageous to have a mechanism to search by email but there isn't any confidence in the Search capability.

Import/Export of Community items (Announcements and Blogs)

Since the community site doesn't allow me to choose 20.1 from the drop-down for the Release/Version, this is for 20.1.

I'm moving a site from a staging site/db to a production site/db, and the import/export functionality for Websites, Sitemaps, and Content works fine, but as far as I can see, the equivalent functionality does not exist for Communities, and specifically for Blog posts and Announcements.
