Events - QR Check In


To help reduce time spent checking-in attendees at events, we've introduced a new QR code check-in feature. When enabled for an event, a QR code can be included in the reminders sent to attendees, and scanned when they arrive to the event.

We've updated the Events Management Help Article with the latest changes, including information about how to enable and use the QR code check-in feature: Oncord Help Articles: Events Management

Change Your Own Oncord Plan

It's now possible for you to add or remove features from your Oncord account yourself, without assistance from Oncord support.

This means it's easier than ever for you to experiment with Oncord's Commerce and Marketing features if you haven't already. 

To review the features that you have enabled:

  • Login to your Oncord account. 
  • Click the "Settings" icon, located in the bottom left of the Dashboard. 
  • Select the "Features" option.

Recurring Sales - Bulk Update Tool

The Oncord Recurring Sales app allows you to charge customers on a recurring basis, and is often used for paid memberships, recurring donations, or subscriptions. 

We've just added a new feature to help you make bulk changes to your existing recurring sales, to reflect any changes you've made to pricing.

The new tool can be accessed by navigating to Commerce > Recurring > Bulk Update Prices (located in the menu at the top of the page).

New Automation Trigger: Specify an Ordering Option on Products

An Oncord Automation can be setup to process a series of workflow steps after a sale, where workflow steps can send a series of e-mail or SMS campaigns, add contacts to groups, or other actions. 

An Automation can be triggered by purchase of a specific Product.

With the recent update, you can now further specify an ordering option of the selected Product. 

New Automation Trigger: Recurring Plan Termination

Oncord Automation can be setup to process a series of workflow steps after termination of a recurring billing plan.

With the recent update, we've further improved this automation trigger, allowing you to specify that the automation should only trigger if the recurring billing plan includes a selected Product.
