It’s time to announce the full launch of the newest version of Fresh Vine. It’s marked with a big 4.0 and we cannot wait for you to get your hands on it. This version marks a major move forward for us. For the first time your whole community can plug in to the Fresh Vine goodness.
The Community Portal is the biggest new feature in this release. It is the community-facing part of Fresh Vine that has been lacking up to this point. For the time being we’ve built out the most requested feature: an online directory. The directory is behind a login to keep things private and secure. You’re able to customize who shows up in the Roster by using a filter, and creating exceptions for individual people.
Inside the portal your people can update the basics on their profile along with their immediate family members. While the research shows that most people aren’t going to proactively manage their profiles, it is a great way to let people help you manage your own data.
Inside the leaders site we’ve added a great new Quick Add tool to quickly create new people and events. You can find it on the top navigation next to the search icon, or on the home dashboard. The top half of the home dashboard has been redesigned to make it easier to get around to the things you use most. Swipe back and forth through the groups you lead, launch into the portal or concierge, and get things done.
There are a lot more tweaks and improvements designed to make pages load faster and work better on mobile devices. This is our best release ever.
We’re aware of a few outstanding minor bugs that need addressing (in giving, services, and the check-in). There is time set aside in the next 14 days to crank through most of these issues. If there are issues you’ve been having that you have not told us about make sure to let us know! We’ve been growing and want to have the best tool out there for communities all over the world.
