  • When using Translations, the Track Name associated with a Session’s Track will be translated correctly during the Session checkout process.

  • A user can use the Event Wizard to update an Event’s dates and its related Session’s dates without receiving an error when attempting to save and exit the Event Wizard.
  • Opening an Event record will no longer result in an “invalid ID field: null” error.

Admin Upgrade Instructions

To upgrade Events to the newest version, go to the Blackthorn Candy Shop.

Blackthorn has adopted Salesforce’s managed package installer to simplify the installation process.

Since Payments is already installed, the installer will install Base Package and make sure the correct version of Payments is installed before installing Events.

Testing

From now until 01/17/23, the directions below will teach you how to test the new front-end features, enhancements, and bug fixes until they are automatically pushed to the front end.

To Do

You will need to replace the Event Page and AttendeeLink URLs, events.blackthorn.io' domain, to a test domain.

TEST DOMAIN: https://preview.events.blackthorn.io/

For example, when you create your attendee, an AttendeeLink URL is generated with the "events.blackthorn.io" domain like this one:

https://events.blackthorn.io/2E12oua7/attendee/ty2W6t9awokrDMaLWi8Mf4sLMedhdrWSBHw6HS7kqVnJ0kKmCK63yl0IxWpbAUBo

You'll then click on the attendee URL so it opens up in a new page. Remove "events.blackthorn.io" and replace it with "preview.events.blackthorn.io" so it looks like this:

https://preview.events.blackthorn.io/2E12oua7/attendee/ty2W6t9awokrDMaLWi8Mf4sLMedhdrWSBHw6HS7kqVnJ0kKmCK63yl0IxWpbAUBo

If you have any questions about this or need help with testing, please don't hesitate to reach out to Blackthorn Support.
