    Dave I assume that the online store API will enable people to purchase items in the member mobile apps. That will be very useful!

    These settings continue to be changed to prevent cross-site tracking by default. By next year Chrome will set 3rd party cookies to off by default and then we will have even more people having issues with frames. And Microsoft Edge is using Chromium engine too see with Chrome 90 even more people on Windows will inherit these issues with time.

    Here are the settings to reactivate 3rd party cookies in Chrome:

    https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647#zippy=%2Callow-or-block-cookies

    Here are the settings for different versions of iOS
    https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/iphone/iphb01fc3c85/ios

    And here are settings for macOS
    https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/safari/sfri40732/mac

    At some point the default behaviour will be no 3rd party cookies and the iframe widgets will start to fail in a wider way across many more machines.

    For now you must inform your members to check their settings to make sure 3rd party cookies/cross-site tracking is TURNED ON!

    Good to see you're working on it -- we already have our Wild Apricot QuickBooks Manager working with QBO over at https://waxm.newpathconsulting.com/waqm

    It is a huge pain point for many of your QuickBooks customers no doubt.

    NewPath Consulting is proud to announce the general availability of a full QuickBooks export functionality for Wild Apricot. Please see https://waxm.newpathconsulting.com/waqm/ for more details.

    The Wild Apricot QuickBooks Manager enables any Wild Apricot administrator to:

    -export a range of invoices into QuickBooks IIF format with both US and Canadian versions of QuickBooks

    - include one or more taxes as part of the item details on the invoice

    -map membership invoices, online store, event, donations and manual invoices into separate subaccounts

    - create event-specific imports by mapping event names into QuickBooks subaccounts

    - customize what is included in the IIF file (e.g. transaction, contact or invoice details)

    - automate exports to be scheduled, delivered to a dropbox and/or emailed to your bookkeeper or accountant on a pre-set schedule

    - up to 1000 invoices with 2 line items per invoice can be exported on monthly basis using the “Basic” tier of Integromat. Higher tiers can process more invoices with more line items per invoice.

    - integrate real time transaction flow with QuickBooks Online (coming soon!)

    With Integromat it is possible to import invoices and payments from external systems. Have a look https://www.newpathconsulting.com/integromat.html

    We also have a customer who is transitioning off Salesforce.com and has financial transactions stored there. They can export this data in a simple CSV file. Even a mandatory format for donations import would be nice since we can transform the data to fit Wild Apricot's requirements in Excel before import.

    Alterntively opening the API to support financial transactions would be helpful.

    In the end this is about how much data there is to import. Clerically speaking, if there are only a few hundred this can be done manually using the backend UI. If there are a few thousands to tens of thousand it becomes quite a problem.

    I have thought about a workaround that involves storing historical transaction data as part of the contact record but this really is the worst case scenario.

    This is possible with our custom reporting solution, which uses google data studio. Have a look:

    If you have multiple bank accounts, multiple currencies tied to each account would also be desired. Multiple currency support in general is missing right now.

    The idea of moving changes from one site to another is attractive.

    We have built a new scenario in Integromat to support tax break our and much more. See https://waxm.newpathconsulting.com/waqm/ for more details.

    The ideal situation would be to expand the list of accounts and add a liability account called Taxes which could export the taxes assessed on each invoice.

    There is a way to create such an account in Quickbooks

    https://www.myvao.com/2014/05/19/set-liability-account-quickbooks/#:~:text=Steps%20To%20Setting%20Up%20a%20Liability%20Account%3A%201,the%20account%20name%20and%20number.%20More%20items...%20

    They are liability accounts because the funds collected here have to be "paid back" (minus any eligible sales taxes paid out on expenses) to the government and thus are a liability.

    By the way unless you are an app developer and pay 99 per year to Apple you cannot change the icon or name of an app dynamically. It is against the terms of the Apple App Store.

    It is possible to use the shortcuts app to attach a custom icon to the Wild Apricot member app.

    See the attached Debbie Harry icon with a custom name linked to the members app via shortcuts app in iOS. Unfortunately this has to be done by each member so it’s not ideal but instructions could be made. A crap workaround but still a workaround.

    We have put together a Jobs board workaround using the discussion forum:

    https://www.newpathconsulting.com/2020/11/wild-apricot-cheat-sheet-16-setting-up-a-job-board-with-wild-apricot-discussion-forums.html

    In a similar way you can change the buttons from forum topics to jobs or classified ads.

    The Integromat solution we created allows breakouts of all extra charges. See https://waxm.newpathconsulting.com/waqm/ for more.
