November 2020 Updates

These are the latest updates that have been released to all Church Edit clients.

New Module: Extensible Database

Whilst the existing Web Page function works perfect for large amounts of web pages such as News sections, the Extensible Database (XDB) is perfect when your site has a large number of records with similar data fields. 

With the XDB, you will be able to create a section of the site similar to a unique database and then create custom fields for that database. This section will then appear in the drop down menu of your website.  

With the XDB all common data types can be added:

  • Text
  • Multiline (Plain Text or Church Edit Web Editor)
  • Files (this could be a single file field or multi file fields)
  • Address
  • Date (with optional Time)
  • Email
  • Links
  • Multiple Choice

Each XDB has it's own editor permissions so websites with multiple editors can have different access levels to update a particular XDB. This has the same permissions as Web Page so access can be Author (access to edit / create records but approval needed before it goes live) and Editor (Can publish and approve records).

XDB's are added within the Settings area of Global Office. From Settings, the fields can be added and the XDB customised.  Making changes to the XDB will be within the Features area of Global Office. 

All master users of Global Office will have access to Settings and to each XDB.

See the video tutorials for further guidance on the Extensible Database (XDB)

Minor Updates

Tags within documents are now ordered alphabetically. 

If the Documents section is enabled on your site then it is now ordered by most recently added.

Arrows re-added to the drop down menus to signify where drop downs appear.

We've updated the Cookie Notice as there were sometimes conflicts with the Global Office cookie, causing people to become logged out of Global Office.

Facebook widget has been updated to the latest version

When copying a page, the tag input field will show for the duplicated page
