    I hope everyone is having a great start to the week. Here are the latest features you'll find in Blackbaud Church Management : Events Check-in Kiosk Stations As requested, chaperones can now search by name — in addition to phone number and barcode — when they check in using a kiosk station. To enable this option (it's not turned on by default), select Allow chaperones to search by name when you add or edit a kiosk station. When you enable search by name, the kiosk provides a keyboard on the check-in screen instead of a number pad. For more information, see Check-in Stations . Participants You can now remove a participant or guest from an event, such as those added mistakenly or as a test. From the participant or guest's menu in the list of participants, select  Delete . From a participant or guest's record, under  Party information , select  Delete  from the guest's menu. For more information, see Event Participants . Gifts To save time and postage, you can now email a gift receipt to a congregant from Receipt manager . Before you can send email receipts, from Receipt settings , you must select Enable email and enter the email addresses and subject to use. You can also preview a sample email and receipt to verify your settings. For more information, see  Receipt Settings . To send the receipt, from Gifts ,  Receipt manager , select  Send email  from the congregant’s menu. For more information, see  Receipt Manager . NOTE: Send email will generate the receipt, email it, and set the receipt status in an all-in-one process. more
