Altru Monthly Roundup – June 2011
Altru version 2.9, patch 234 was released this month. Along with some great new features, this update also added the ability to access the Altru Resources page from within the program! You can now add an All Things Altru button to your homepage for quick access to the video library, help guides, training, class schedule, Case Central and much more.
We just wrapped up a very successful June Miniseries on mailing and query. We are now also posting the recordings of the episodes on the Altru Training Classes Page. If you weren’t able to take part in the class, visit this page to view the recording, download the class notes, and sign up for upcoming classes.

Word on the Street
The top suggestion on Idea Bank this month is to sort event registration lists by last name rather than by their full name. Do you think this would be a helpful feature? Head out to Idea Bank to vote for this idea or any others you would like to see implemented.
