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.

New Members and Renewals in RiSE


We're working on seting up join and renewal pages for one of our clients in RiSE.  Following the documentation at!billingformembership3.htm, we were able to successfully add General Product Display web parts to a join page.  I see that these web parts will display any voluntary items associated with the billing cycle and allow people to check or uncheck them.

PaymentGateway error in SOA object call for credit card transaction

I am able to implement the credit card transaction using SOA objects ( ref site:!commercecomboorderma.htm ) in .Net framework 4.5 with IMIS 20.1.4 SOA objects.

However, I noticed that if we make two credit card transactions one after another, the first one goes through but the rest of the transactions throw errors with the message “contact your system admin”, which I assume means the IMIS Administrator, as the issue is related to Asi.PaymentGateway.PayflowProPaymentGatewayProvider .

Communities Module - Unimpressed

We recently purchased the Communities Module for iMIS with the idea of being able to give our clients a wide variety of social communication options but so far we have not been able to roll it out to a single client due to it's shortcomings. I just wanted to put this topic up here for discussion and to potentially see if anyone has developed any useable functionality from the module and could share tips.

Lookup table for Event description field

Problem with Custom Credit Card process (BluePay)

We are having an issue with the Credit Card authorization from Service Central. (iMIS 15.2) We created an (VB6) OCX file using samples found on the community site. The odd part, is that it is working on some computers but not others, even identical hardware and software. I was able to track the problem down to the "GetValue" function. When it fails all the user sees is the grey authorizing credit card box, which is blank, and the mouse cursor spinning (waiting).

Fundraising Appeals - setting targets

Question here about best practice when setting up an appeal that spans more than one financial year.
My client has a need to set financial targets for each appeal for each financial year. Fair enough, you might say, but how best to record the 2 financial targets when an appeal starts in one financial year and ends in the next?
The way I see it is to either,
1. break the appeal into 2; one for each financial year;

Max member count for Committees

Does anyone know if there is a max amount allowed for Committees in iMIS 15.2.15? We are building a committee right now and have hit a point where it won't accept anymore and we are stuck to 66. Can't seem to find if there is a setting that tells us this either.
