Realizing that this is fairly dry material, we nonetheless wish to mention several small enhancements within the Yahrzeit capability:
- ShalomCloud has for some time offered “tags,” alternatively dubbed “attributes,” for Households and individuals. Yahrzeits can also now be associated with tags….which means you can also query and report by those tags.
- If your congregation maintains plaques for Yahrzeits, you might be interested in a new query–displaying all the Yahrzeits with no plaque.
- In the same vein, the application has long been able to show and display Yahrzeits and relationships to people in the congregation. Now we flip to the opposite question–showing all the Yahrzeits for whom no relationship exists.
- Next occurrence of Yahrzeit, as of a user-entered date.
