Volunteer Management Software (VMS) Version 7.2 Released

Salt Lake City, Utah — Samaritan is pleased to announce the release of version 7.2 of our Volunteer Software. Some of the popular features include:

  • Logged Data enhancements
    “Logged Data” is the name for the fields in the surveys that store the data that users enter to create “Log Book Entries.” In 7.2 the Samaritan Development team converted the “logged data fields (LDF)” to “user defined fields (UDF).” This simplified the code by reducing the field types and also added a few new field types, previously available as UDF but not LDF.

  • Automation enhancements
    Over the past several releases Samaritan’s Development team has been enhancing the former “E-mail Alerts” (in the Tools>Admin Options) to a system which can create other types of automations rather than just e-mail alerts. One example of an automation is to change records in mass.

  • “Equals During” filters
    For years users have been able to build simple to complex filters, called “Named Searches.”  As a new “Named Search” filter 7.2 includes options to search on values during specific periods of time.

Samaritan appreciates the diligent work done by our clients and internal teams in designing, implementing, and testing these new capabilities. For a comprehensive list of all new features and enhancements, please review our Engineering Notes.
