    Engagement v12.1

    • Added Key Performance Indicators to Step Programs and Step Types.
    • Fixed Invalid URL to Person Profile on Step Participant List Block. Fixes: #4543

    Event v12.1

    • Fixed issue where the RegistrationEntry would get an error when loading a registration that is over or doesn't exist instead of the friendly message. Fixes: #4538
    • Fixed inability to remove (i.e. set to $0.00) fees during registration. Fixes: #4558

    Finance v12.1

    • Added a new Event Registration Matching block for matching existing batch transactions to a corresponding event registration (similar to the Fundraising Matching block).
    • Added TargetPerson as a Lava merge field to the Contribution Statement Lava block.
    • Updated the Contribution Statement Lava block to sort the transactions from oldest to newest (was previously set to display newest to oldest).

    Group v12.1

    • Changed the group scheduling auto-schedule logic to use the least recently scheduled 'available' person instead of only randomly choosing from the available people.
    • Changed the Group Member Detail block to default new members' communication preference to 'No Preference' so that their normal profile preference is used instead of being overridden unnecessarily.
    • The GroupDetail block has new setting called "Add Administrate Security to Group Creator". When this is set to "Yes" then whoever created the group will automatically have the security permission to administrate the group added. The default value for this setting is "No". The behavior of Rock prior to v12.1 was to automatically grant the Group creator "Administrate" permission. As of v12.1 this will not happen unless the "Add Administrate Security to Group Creator" block setting is set to "Yes". This release does NOT change the security permissions for any existing Groups.
    • Fixed issue causing Mobile Group Edit block to give an error when tapping Cancel button in certain configurations.
    • Fixed Group Detail block to create its own copy of attribute Values without making any change to the original group. This fixes an issue where attribute values were being lost from the original group when creating a new group using the group copy feature. Fixes: #4509
    • Updated the Group Schedule Toolbox block to prevent a double postback when changing the Starting On date.
    • Updated the Group Finder block so that campus filtering will occur when the "Enable Campus Context" is enabled (and a campus is in the context) when the "Display Campus Filter" is disabled. Fixes: #4355

    Lava v12.1

    • Added new Lava filters for reading and writing cookies.
    • Fixed an issue with a Lava helper not handling null values. Fixes: #4550

    Reporting v12.1

    • Fixed an authorization issue that prevented creation of DataViews for Notes.
    • Fixed an issue with the Data View's last refresh date not displaying correctly. Fixes: #4515
    • Fixed behavior of dynamic reports with "In Group(s)" filters where a group is deselected at run time.
    • Updated the family analytics stored procedures to correctly set the AttributeValue's ValueAsNumeric field. Fixes: #4184
