What do alcohol and conferences have in common? No, you don’t need one to attend the other (it just helps!). No, no – our newsletter! This week in our newsletter, one of our staff members shares her favorite type of beer, our director of sales is off to exciting New York City and we figure out how direct mail and the internet are connected.

Product Updates - New Features

1. New Alert for Administrators

In our continuing efforts to prevent user error, we added an alert to the User Manager that will warn administrators when they have created a user with no access to the database (i.e. all permission levels at 'None').

2. New Targeting Methods in Custom Financial

Custom Financial Reports now offers the ability to run reports by Editor or Edit Date. You can limit results to Active records, Inactive records, or leave it set to All records. You can find it under Reports > Custom Financial: Other Targeting.

Staff Pick: Microbrew Beer

Our Staff Pick this week comes from Jessica Hilt, our Director of Client Services. Always the contrarian, instead of recommending software or a website, her Staff Pick is local microbrew.

Handcrafted local beer is exceptional in flavor and promotes the local brewery scene. That means Iím not stuck with one yellow, fizzy beer at the tap but more creative, interesting beers to enjoy.

San Diego has a distinct style of microbrew Ė very hoppy and strong. The best example of this style is Stoneís Arrogant Bastard Ale. With its aggressive and slightly bitter flavor, this beer deserves its name.

We also support a thriving community of Belgian beer lovers which is why Lost Abbey Brewery was so well-received here. Their Red Barn Ale is a great summer brew that light is enough to be drunk on any Southern California day.
