New Features in CT6

The release of CT6 brings with it several new features designed to enhance the usability and flexibility of the web based platform. Some of the changes include a new menu and navigation system; the ability to add people, families, and groups; perform accounting functions including making a payment and interact with individual; and family registrations on a deeper level than ever before.

We aren’t stopping there though! Over the coming weeks and months, we will be continuing to release more features including the ability to create, cancel and transfer a registration. The process of moving functionality of CT5 to CT6 will continue by migrating features over as well as adding new ones. Check out the Release Notes to stay up to date on new features and fixes once they are released.

Got feedback from what you see? We would love to hear it. Your input helps us make the software better, and you can contribute to the process by leaving your comments on the CT6 Feedback Forum.

Vertical Tabs

One of the first things that you will notice after logging into CT6 is that there are no more tabs! While that is technically true, what we have done is organize the tabs into a list which we call Vertical Tabs. As you navigate through CT6, click on the Vertical Tabs to reference where you have been previously.
