PowerChurch Software Newsletter - Year-End 2018 Part 2

This is part two of the 2018 Year-End Newsletter. In this issue, we highlight another great feature in Version 12 of PowerChurch Plus, one more state-specific tax table change for the new year, list the most commonly viewed articles and videos in the Knowledge Base, and reveal some more useful year-end resources.


Version 12 Highlight - Navigation List

Many data entry screens in PowerChurch Plus Version 12 have a new Navigation List. This replaces some of the Find and Locate functionality in the software.

With the Navigation List, you have access to the list of items, much like a Locate list gives, but instead of opening in a separate window, it is always in view. There is also a full text search, which can make partial text matches anywhere in the displayed data. For example, you could use this to match partial text in first and last names, which the Find button functionality wasn't able to do. You can also Filter using code fields in many of the Navigation Lists. This is useful to limit the list of Personal Profiles down to only those with Personal Status Code of Visitor assigned, for example.

The video below demonstrates this functionality.


Missouri State Tax Calculation Update

The 2019 tax calculation method for Missouri state taxes has been updated in a new Maintenance Release for Versions 11.55 and 12. The "Federal Withholding Limit" has been removed from the calculation formula for 2019. There are now pre-2019 and post-2019 tax tables for Missouri state. The program will warn if you are still using a pre-2019 tax table.

The updated documentation for Missouri state tax tables can be found here
