IO Getting Started - Navigation: How to navigate the Offering Module

How to navigate the new Offering Module

To access the Offering Module, log into ParishSOFT Family Suite as usual; then click the Offering tab. This will open the new Offering Module in a new internet tab.



Once the Offering screen displays, you will still have access to the Family Suite and may toggle between the two tabs on the internet.FSandIStabs.png


There are two ways to get around in Offering.

  1. Click the Page Links found at the bottom of the Cards which make up the Pages Panel.
  2. Click the option from the Navigator Bar on the left side of the screen.
  3. This software is designed to work on many platforms including mobile devices which is why the font may seem a bit small when working on a computer. There are two ways to increase/decrease the font size: Note: Use Ctrl-0 to pop back to the original screen size at any time.
    • Depress the Ctrl-key and turn the wheel on your mouse away from you (increase) or toward you (decrease).
    • Depress the Ctrl-key and use the + and - signs on the keypad to increase or decrease the size.
  4. Once you have left the Offering Homepage (screenshot above), there are two ways to access the options.
    • Use the Navigator Bar on the left, which is present no matter which screen you access.
    • Click Offering on the breadcrumb link to go back to the Offering Homepage and use the page links on the cards.
  5. Our new modules are designed with processing speed in mind. This is why when you access the Funds or the Pledges screens for the first time, for example, the center screen will be blank. Instead of using system resources to collect and display all of the records, the Redesigned Offering Module's efficient use of resources lets you enter your search criteria first, limiting the number of records that must be found and displayed.
  6. Once you search through the Filter Panel or add your keyword to the Search Bar and click the search action button, your screen will populate. The image below shows which different action buttons are used to add a record, download a record(s), and change the way records are displayed on the screen. Some of the action buttons listed will only be present on certain screens.
  7. Although it is possible to populate each screen with all records by leaving the Search Bar empty and clicking the search action button, we recommend against it. Again, this has to do with processing speed. Anytime the screen displays all records, it contributes to performance degradation.

  • A five steps short tutorial to find the posting part would be great by now. This "Isidore" new version is not user friendly at all. I'm proficient on Linux systems and a cybersecurity student and can not navigate through this.

  • We haven't been switched over yet. I was on the webinar yesterday and it didn't look great but I was hoping that it would be better in person. Now I'm really wary after seeing all of these comments. I could already see a few things in the webinar that were going to be problematic. Even simple posting is going to take longer because of how it's set up to tab through the fields instead of being able to enter through them.
