Should you have any questions about the latest release, please contact your Client Success Manager or Customer Support via our support centre 


Key Changes: 

  • New Payment Import feature for bank payments 
  • ‘First Census Date’ field and filter added to eCAF Manager 
  • New field for “Deferral Type” now available when configuring Payment Source records 

Planned Release Dates 

  • Phase I: Tues 12 July 2022 
  • Phase II: Tues 19 June 2022 



Bank Statement Payment Import 

Bank Payments option on the Payment Import page. This new importer allows you to load in a CSV file of your bank payments and have those payments allocated against invoices. This could potentially save you a lot of time if you receive a large number of payments through bank transfers and most of them have the Invoice Number in the reference field. In future, we may consider adding intelligence to the import for other types of matching like you see in Payment Reconciliation modules of popular accounting systems.




eCAF Manager 

The eCAF Manager now has a column and filter for “First Census Date” 



Payment Source – Deferral Type 

A new field for “Deferral Type” is now available when configuring Payment Source records. There is currently one option for “VSL” with more expected to be added later. A Payment Source with a VSL Deferral Type represents a payment received from the government after the VSL census date. 


Events API 

We’ve made a change to the Events API (/webservice/courses/{course_number}/events/{id} and /webservice/timetables/{timetable_id}/events/{id}) where changing the Staff Party on an event record will remove the previous staff member from the attendees list and instead replaced with the nominated Staff member in the call. 

This is to ensure consistency in both UI and API behaviours when updating the staff member on an Event Record.
