Update 14th July 2021

These changes have been provided in response to feedback

There is an extra column "Bal Due" and change to "Paid Status"

  • This only shows up for the current month and its value will be according to the Option Tab option "How to calculate Current Player Balance Status" and can be
    • "All current entries" - as present
    • "Month End Balance plus Credits" - assuming Credits are payments
    • "Month End Balance Only"
  • The Paid Status will be calculated according to this value

The [Sessions] Tab includes all future entries from the Calendar to allow you to set the Fees for the whole month directly from the "Attendance" module


Update 11th May 2021

These further changes are mainly to the databases and underlying software to improve checks for variations of names, aliases etc. We have found that with the Realbridge Login and Bridgewebs trying to resolve invalid names, mistakes can be made by players either way, especially where they share a computer. Now that RealBridge uses Cookies to remember both the Name and Id, a player using a shared computer has to be careful to change both Name and ID Number. So we have dropped any automatic checks and allow you to verify and amend the names

In particular

  • There is a new [Name Check] Tab which can be used to view and update variations in Players Names
  • The previous equivalent in Adjustments has been dropped.
  • The option to change the "Paid By" in the Summary Session Popup has been changed to use a name and extended to all Members picked up by the Attendance module. 

Update 12th April 2021

These changes are mainly to the databases and underlying software to improve checks for variations of names, aliases etc. In particular

  • Recording of Bridgewebs id rather than membership name in attendance databases to allow change of names and aliases at a later stage
  • Restriction to "Pay by Partner" only allowed to Debit transactions
  • Debit/Credit transfer correctly assigned
  • Extension of "Pay by Partner" to full list of members in Summary "Popup" display

There have been a number of technical changes behind the scenes in the software and databases to handle the changes in this release.
Bridgewebs should automatically update all the records. If you have any issues, please use the "Administration Support Request" to report these.
