H6 What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

H4 Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

H4 How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

January is tax season for your church–not the most exciting part of the year, to be sure. 

That’s why we’ve spent months updating and preparing our tax tools, to create the best experience possible for you and your church as you send out tax statements. 

We’re thrilled to offer a more streamlined experience as well as tools to make it easier to ensure that all donors receive a tax statement.

Here are just a few changes that we’ve made this year.

New Flows to Ensure All Donors Receive A Tax Statement

Depending on how donations have been made to your church, it is possible that you have received donations with no associated email address. As you send out tax statements this year, we’ve created branching flows that walk you through handling every donor that doesn’t have an email address on file.

Detecting Missing Emails And Multiple Paths to Resolving The Issue

(Optional) Entering Missing Emails When Known

Confirmation Showing Emails that have been sent and Statements that must be printed

Faster Statement Generation & Notifications About Statements Being Ready

We’ve completely rebuilt how Tax Statements are generated. These changes significantly reduce the generation time while also ensuring that all statements are accurate. 

But even with statement generation taking 25% to 50% the time it took in previous years, it can still take anywhere from 90 seconds to 5 minutes for hundreds of statements to be generated across thousands of transactions. 

To streamline the generation process for you, we’ve updated the Tax Statements interface to more clearly show the status of tax statements that are being generated. 

On top of that, we now give you the option of receiving a notification email once statements have been generated. This means that you can start the generation process and then move on to something else until we let you know that your statements are ready.

Better User Experience For Limited Access Users

For many multi-campus churches, it’s common for Dashboard Users to only have access to a single Location. We’ve made multiple UI changes to add clarity for Limited Access Users that don’t have access to all Locations of your church. 

These changes include:

  • When generating Statements, the Location dropdown only includes Locations that the User has access to. The All Locations option is also not shown.
  • A notification is shown at the top of the screen to ensure that the User is aware that they may not have access to some statements.
  • If a Statement is generated for a Location that the User does not have access to, then it will be grayed out. If the user clicks the statement anyway, then a notification is shown alerting them that they do not have access to one or more Locations which were used for generating the statements.

The above improvements are just a few of the many changes we have made over the last few months to ensure you have a great experience using our Tax Statement tool in January. We can’t wait for you to generate statements with Tithe.ly and to see how easy tax season can be for your church!
