UPDATE 2: DAP 4.6.2 & LiveLinks 1.10.2 released on 06/04/2014
UPDATE 1: DAP 4.6.1 & LiveLinks 1.10.1 released on 05/05/2014

Hey Dappers!

We’re super thrilled to announce the BETA release of DAP v4.6 and LiveLinks v1.10

An incredible amount of time and effort went into this one – so we’re really excited about this new release!

There are a ton of new features and improvements that will make DAP much more fun to use. We also have a whole bunch of new integration with 3rd party systems.

The updates are free for DAP users with current access to upgrades & support

Please do “Like” us on FB or Tweet this (just above this post) if you wish to show us your support! Thanks!

Please note that this is a beta release.

So if you have a live web site with active subscriptions and members, then hold off on installing these until we release the FINAL version in about 3 weeks.

All these new features, updates and integrations were based on your invaluable feedback – so thank you for that.

Two more things:

1. Our site has received a full makeover (new look & feel) :). Please check it out.

2. And NOW is a great time to promote DAP as an affiliate! DAP is now available for BOTH purchase and renewal as a subscription. You will earn ongoing lifetime recurring commissions for the subscription signups!

Now without further ado, let’s dive right in and take a look at what our awesome new DAP 4.6 release offers:

New DAP => 3rd Party Integration

  • NEW: DAP=>Infusionsoft Integration
    DAP already had one-way integration with Infusionsoft. The integration was from Infusionsoft->DAP. But we have now completed 2-way full fledged integration with Infusionsoft. If you want to use DAP for your Membership Management and Infusionsoft for Email Marketing / Shopping Cart etc, then you can do that with either Infusionsoft->DAP or with DAP->Infusionoft integration.
    1) Infusionsoft Web Form => DAP FREE Product – FREE Registration
    2) Infusionsoft Order Form / Shopping Cart => DAP Paid Product – PAID Registration
    3) DAP Free Signup Form => Infusionsoft Group – FREE Registration
    4) DAP Payment Button (Paypal/CB/Authorize.net etc) => Infusionsoft Group – PAID Registration.
    (See this document for details.)
  • NEW: Ontraport (formally Office Autopilot) Integration
    If you want to use DAP for your Membership Management and OAP/Ontraport for Email Marketing, then you can do that with the very easy to setup DAP=>OAP integration.
    1) DAP FREE Signup => OAP/Ontraport
    Users that sign up using DAP signup/registration form will be automatically added to the configured OAP/Ontraport group.
    2) OAP/Ontraport => DAPUser that sign up using Ontraport/OAP signup form will be automatically added to the DAP membership.
    3) DAP Paid Product => OAP/OntraportUsers that purchase a product using a DAP-Supported-Payment-Processor like Paypal, Authorize.net, Clickbank etc will be automatically added to the configured OAP/Ontraport group.

  • NEW: Zaxaa Integration
    If you want to use Zaxaa as your shopping cart /affiliate platform and integrate it with DAP as your membership platform, then it’s a simple 3 step process for integration.
    1) Enter your Zaxaa API Signature in DAP Setup -> Config -> Secret Authorization Key section.
    2) Make sure your DAP product name matches the Zaxaa product name.
    3) Set the IPN URL in Zaxaa to point to http://YOURSITE.com/dap/dap-zaxaa.php. That’s it.
    (See this document for details.)
  • Forum Integration – vBulletin 5.x & Xenforo integration
    DAP integrates with both vBulletin 5.x forum and Xenforo forum now. We had completed this integration a couple months ago but we had not made formal announcement of this integration as it was still being tested.DAP integrates with Xenforo, vBulletin, and all other free WP plugins like BBPress, SimplePress, Buddypress, Mingle etc. The integration with Xenforo and vBulletin is full fledged – you can control who gets access to which forums based on their membership level in DAP.
    (Xenforo Integration – See this document for details.
    vBulletin Integration – See this document for details.)
  • New: CCBill Integration
    DAP now integrates with CCBill Payment Processor.
    We have added a new ‘CCBill Order Form Generation’ in DAP Payments=>Generate Buy Buttons->CCBill tab. You can generate the CCBill form code for your DAP Products, publish it on your sales page and when a user clicks on the payment button, they will get transferred to the CCBill site to complete payment. Upon successful payment, DAP will automatically create a membership account for the user and give user access to the downloads and protected content.
    (See this document for details.)
  • New: Mandrill.com Integration (a new email service from MailChimp)
    Mandrill.com allows 12,000 emails per month free
    – You can hook up DAP to Mandrill to send out Emails (EMAIL => SMTP) and have all of your emails go through the high-performance, high-deliverability Mandrill email servers instead of routing it through your webhost’s email servers.
    – With Mandrill, you need to use port 465 and SSL as Y.

New DAP Features

  • New Email Broadcast Options  We have added following new Email Broadcast options:
    Note: If the user’s access end date to the paid product is in the past, the user’s access to product is considered expired. Otherwise the user is considered active.
    1) Send Broadcast to “All Active Paid Users”
    2) Send Broadcast to “All Expired Paid Users”
    3) All Expired And Active Paid Users
    4) All Free Users (users who have completed double-optin)
    (See this document for details.)
  • GetResponse Integration We have added some new really cool integration options with GetResponse. DAP has a feature called product chaining where you can set up rules to automatically remove users access to a product when they get access to another product in DAP.  Now we have taken it one step further with GetResponse. You can now do product chaining between DAP and GR.  When users upgrade to a higher level product or downgrade to a lower level product in DAP, the chaining rule will also trigger calls to GR to automatically move the user to the right list.  For e.g. when a  user upgrades to a PAID product from a FREE product, chaining rule can not only automatically remove users access to FREE product in DAP but also move user to the right group/list in GR. The cool thing is… GetResponse does not force a double-optin (unlike some other autoresponder systems) even if the subscriber is added via APIs.
  • Clickbank Automated Login After PurchaseIn this release of DAP (4.6), we have also automated login to DAP membership right after Clickbank purchase. The buyers will be automatically logged in to their membership after purchase and you can redirect users wherever you want after they are auto-logged-in. Please NOTE: the users will get auto-logged when they hit the ‘Complete My Purchase’ button on the CB page after they complete purchase. But even if the users decide to abort and do not hit the ‘Complete My Purchase’ button, the great thing about this new feature is: DAP has a backdoor to make sure the user account gets created automatically (for successful purchase) and you do NOT have to handle the user creation manually.
    (See this document for details.)
  • ClickBank Automated Refunds and Cancellation
    In this release of DAP (4.6), we have automated CB->DAP refunds and cancellations. If a customer contacts you to request a refund or cancellation, you can initiate a refund or cancellation ticket from within your ClickBank account. No action needed in DAP.When you complete a refund in CB, DAP will automatically create a new negative transaction in the Orders table. Then it rolls back user’s access to product.If you are using the DAP Affiliate program, then DAP will roll-back any affiliate commissions earned on that sale and make a negative entry in the database for that affiliate. If you are using the CB affiliate program, then this is not relevant, as there will be no aff comm in DAP.Upon CB cancellation, DAP will automatically apply action defined in DAP Products Page -> Cancellation & Expiration tab.
    (See this document for details.)
  • JVZoo Automated Login After Purchase
    In this release of DAP (4.6), we have also automated login to DAP membership right after JVZoo purchase. This is a unique integration that only DAP has where your users do NOT have to take any action after a purchase for automatic account creation or auto-login. The buyers will be automatically logged in to their membership after purchase and you can redirect users wherever you want after they are auto-logged-in. Please NOTE: the users will get auto-logged when they hit the ‘Access My Purchase’ button on the final receipt page after they complete purchase. But even if the users decide to abort and do not hit the ‘Access My Purchase’ button, the great thing about this new feature is… DAP has a backdoor to make sure the user account gets created automatically (for successful purchase) and you do NOT have to handle the user creation manually.
    (See this document for details.)
  • Warrior Plus – Keygen implemented!
    In this release of DAP (4.6), we have also updated dap to automatically display login credentials to the user on the final thank-you page upon purchase. Users will no longer have to wait for their email to login. Just set the Warrior Plugin keygen url to point to the dap keygen script. DAP now supports Warrior Plus -> Stripe integration as well.
  • Admin-Facing Cancel Option – Paypal / Authorize.net
    DAP Admins will no longer have to login to Authorize.net or Paypal to cancel a user’s transaction. Click on the transaction Id hyperlink in DAP Users->Manage page to get to the edit transaction page. If a payment transaction is from Paypal or Authorize.net, you will notice a new CANCEL button right next to the Refund button in DAP Admin -> Edit Trasactions page. Upon cancellation, DAP will automatically apply the action you define in DAP Products Page -> Cancellation & Expiration tab. DAP will not only cancel the transaction within DAP and 3rd party systems (integrated in dap products page -> notifications tab) but also CANCEL payment in Paypal/Authnet. If you do not want this feature to be enabled, then you can turn it off in /dap/dap-config.php.
    refundandcancel
    (See this document for details.)
  • Admin-Facing Refund Option – Paypal
    DAP Admins will no longer have to login to Paypal to refund a user’s transaction. Click on the transaction Id hyperlink in DAP Users->Manage page to get to the edit transaction page. If a payment transaction is from Paypal, then when you click on the refund button, DAP will not only refund the transaction within DAP but also refund payment in Paypal. If you do not want this feature to be enabled, then you can turn it off in /dap/dap-config.php.
  • User-Facing Cancel Option – Paypal And Authorize.net
    user-facing-cancel
    You can now provide your users with an easy way to cancel their own subscription. If the users cancel it themselves, no admin action will be required. DAP will automatically cancel their subscription in Paypal / Authorize.net and also apply the action you define in DAP products -> Cancellation & Expiration tab to the user account.
    (See this document for details.)
  • Cancel Payment in Paypal => User’s access to product instantly removed from DAP
    If you now cancel user’s payment in your Paypal account, then dap will take instant action based on the option you select in DAP Products page -> Cancellation & Expiration option for that product. The available options are :
    1) No action – let the users access expire naturally at the end of current recurring cycle.
    2) Remove From Product – Instantly remove user’s access to product
    3) Set Access End Date to Previous Date – the users will instantly lose access but the row will remain in dap users->manage page. This way you can still see what products the user has/had but the access end date will be in the past so users can no longer access content.
  • Cancellation / Expiration options
    Set the product “Cancellation / Expiration option” in DAP Products page -> Cancellation & Expiration option.The available options are :
    1) No action – let the users access expire naturally at the end of current recurring cycle.
    2) Remove From Product – Instantly remove user’s access to product
    3) Set Access End Date to Previous Date – the users will instantly lose access but the row will remain in dap users->manage page. This way you can still see what products the user has/had but the access end date will be in the past so users can no longer access content. Only applicable to Paypal, Authorize.net, Clickbank and CCBill cancellations.
  • Show Users a List of ALL of their payment Transactions
    You can use this shortcode to show ALL transactions (it’s just a dump of user’s transaction history. Shows every single transaction for the logged-in user). Currently only one transaction template is available (template1).
    showalltrans
    (See this document for details.)
  • Show Invoice and allow Invoice PDF download
    You can use this shortcode to show an ‘invoice’ link for user transaction. When the users click on the invoice link, a new window will open where the invoice will be displayed in pdf format.
    showinvoice
    (See this document for details.)
  • Date fields added to Payments > Orders > Search page
    orderdate
  • NEW DAP Shortcode for Update CC/Billing page (integrates with Authnet/Stripe)
    Say that you have an update billing info page where you allow your users to update their Credit Card info (See this document for more on update CC / Profile interface). Now you can use this new shortcode to only show the ‘click here to update CC/Profile’ link in the user’s profile page if they have an active Authnet or Stripe transaction. [ DAPShowCCUpdatePage payment_gateway=”authnet” displaymsg=”Click HERE to Update Your Credit Card Info“] [/ DAPShowCCUpdatePage] . Set payment_gateway attribute in the shortcode to stripe if you use stripe for payment.
    Set it to authnet if you use authorize.net for payment.
  • New field for DAP shortcode: “hasExpiredAccessTo”
    [DAP hasExpiredAccessTo=”ANY”]content[/DAP]: Show content to a member who has currently signed up for ANY product (1 or more, recurring or one-time) and whose access to those 1 or more products (recurring or one-time) has since expired.[DAP hasExpiredAccessTo=”1″]content[/DAP]
    Show content to a member who has currently signed up for DAP productId = 1 and whose access to that product has since expired.[DAP hasExpiredAccessTo=”1,3″]content[/DAP] Show to a member who has currently signed up for DAP productId = 1 or 3 and whose access to those products has since expired
  • Post-Login-Landing-Page for DAP Admin is now configurable
    We have now made the post-login landing page for DAP Admins – a configurable option.
    – If you click on “DigitalAccessPass” link in WordPress admin menu, then you will always enter the DAP admin area.
    – So basically where the DAP admin is taken to – DAP admin home or member home page – after logging in from regular DAP login form, is now configurable.
  • Improved Admin Home Page Report*
    It now shows active and expired signups per product.
    * New “Unique Users” report add to admin home page. Shows list of unique users across the system, as well as unique active and expired users per product
  • Updated Data Export (CSV) Options
    We have several new Data Export Options.1) Export All Paid Users or All Free Users
    exportpaidfree2) Export users by selecting user status or user’s product status.
    NOTE: Default set to “ALL” (if set to ALL, user and product status are ignored and users are exported regardless of user or user-product status).
    userproductstatus3) Export users by selecting Email Opt-In Status
    Default set to “ALL” (if set to ALL, email opt-in status is ignored)
    exporteamiloptinNOTE: If you are exporting a CSV list for Email broadcast, make sure to set Email Optin to Opted-In.3) Export active / expired users by selecting Access End Date
    Default set to “Does not matter” (if set to ‘Does Not Matter’, access end date is not used in the query to retrieve users)
    exportaccessenddate4) Export just unique / distinct user records (one row per user even if user has multiple products) OR retrieve all user-product rows for a user (if user has multiple products, multiple rows displayed per user).Default set to “Just User Data”.useroruserproduct

Minor Updates:

* On Users > Manage page, we have changed “Trans Id” to “Order Id”
* New shortcode for login: [DAPLoginForm]
%%LOGIN_FORM%% will continue to work.

Please note that this is a beta release.

So if you have a live web site with active subscriptions and members, then hold off on installing these until we release the FINAL version in about 3 weeks.

So, we hope 4.6 was worth the wait for you :-). We would love to hear your thoughts, so don’t forget to leave a comment (or two) below.

Cheers!

  1. These look like some great upgrades as always. It’s awesome how you are always improving this product. I was REALLY hoping for an overhaul of the affiliate system on this release… maybe next time?

  2. Looks like another great release, Veena and Ravi! I love that you’ve been able to finally tackle some of the more complicated system integrations (like Infusionsoft).

    The refund processing within DAP will also be a huge help for those of us with virtual assistants who do refunds but don’t need to give access to Paypal now.

    Keep up the awesome work!

    Bob

    p.s. I also love that you’ve turned DAP into a SaaS model – both for even more affordability for new members just starting out (the lifetime/1-year update is still awesome), and for affiliates like me to have recurring commissions on higher conversions.

  3. Hello, wow you guys have been hard at work for 3rd party integrations! Thank you!

    Please tell me you also added column sorts for all headers on the main page and maybe other reports?

    Thanks

  4. Lots of new features guys…nice work! Looking forward to the stable version 🙂
    Also love the redesign of digitalaccesspass.com

  5. Wow! You’ve been busy! I’m glad to see all the new refinements (even the ones that don’t really affect me). The extra Clickbank integrations look great and I can’t wait to implement it on my Clickbank-driven membership site!

    I’ll tell you the truth – I recently tried the Premise plugin for WordPress to power a membership site. While the clean and streamlined admin GUI was appealing, I couldn’t get the Clickbank integration to work. That and the fact that the vendor for Premise appears to have halted development of it (the Clickbank integration was stuck on beta) led me back to DAP, with the Premise plug-in landing on the pile of tried-and-discarded ‘premium’ WordPress add-ons.

    I never should have left. DAP has the flexibility and features I need and Ravi and Veena’s support is awesome. Their continued development and refinement of DAP is impressive in a world of orphaned software and disappearing author websites.

    For anyone queasy about being asked to actually PAY for a WordPress plugin, I say that while free is great sometimes (and I really appreciate many of the plugins I pick up for nothing including WordPress itself) more often than not you do get what you pay for.

    Programmers have to eat and clothe their families too, and if you’ve ever been exposed to what it costs to get custom programming done in the corporate world, then you know that what even the most premium WordPress add-on costs is a mere pittance.

  6. Great news Veena & Ravi,

    I’m very exited about the Ontraport Integration.
    This wil make my live much easier

    Can’t wait to update 😉

  7. >>p.s. I also love that you’ve turned DAP into a SaaS model – both for even more affordability for new members just starting out (the lifetime/1-year update is still awesome), and for affiliates like me to have recurring commissions on higher conversions. << Yes, it's a great time to promote DAP as an affiliate and earn recurring commissions. Thanks Bob for your continued support. We really appreciate it. -Veena

  8. >> I’m very exited about the Ontraport Integration. << Thanks Coen. The only thing pending with Ontraport integration is the IPN integration for subscription payments (if you use Ontraport to sell). Last time we checked, they notified 3rd party systems after the initial purchase but there was no notification upon subscription payments. If you find anything different from their support, let us know and we will be happy to integrate that too. If you use Ontraport for just email marketing, the integration from DAP=>Ontraport for both paid and free products works great.

    – Veena

  9. >>I never should have left. DAP has the flexibility and features I need and Ravi and Veena’s support is awesome. Their continued development and refinement of DAP is impressive in a world of orphaned software and disappearing author websites. << Wow! Thanks Chris for taking the time to make such a great case for why DAP is the best membership platform. It's not just a plugin. It's a platform with everything that you need to manage your membership site all built in... We are not done yet. Several exciting things lined up for the next release. Appreciation and support from customers like you means a LOT to us and keeps us going. Thanks! -Veena

  10. >>Lots of new features guys…nice work! Looking forward to the stable version : << Thanks Serkan! Thanks for your help with the Paypal Payflow integration! BTW, to all the DAP folks that have been asking about Paypal Payflow integration, we worked hard to include that integration in this release but we found out that Payflow does not support IPN (instant payment notification) for subscription payments. Can't believe they do not support something as basic as this for a product as big as Payflow. We are trying to confirm this with Paypal. So for now, please continue using Paypal Website Payments PRO to accept Credit Card payments on your own site using the DAP shopping cart. If you are signing up for a new Paypal account, then make sure to get them to enable Paypal Payments PRO (and not Payflow) on your account. PayPal Pro Direct Payment Edition is still supported and still used by many merchants today. Thanks, Veena

  11. AWESOME news and updates, thank you for all you do to make this better and better!

    How are you coming along with Facebook integration for login?

    Cheers!

  12. Hi Linda,

    The DAP Social Login / Social Signup (using Facebook) plugin requires DAP 4.6. We have introduced a new ’email aliasing’ feature in DAP 4.6. If you successfully authenticate or register using FB, your FB email will be aliased to your DAP primary email. You can ‘Connect with FB’ for 1-click DAP Login or Registration.

    Now that 4.6 is out, we are now focused on the release of this plugin.

    This plugin has come out really well and we can’t wait to launch it in about 2-3 weeks.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  13. Hi Sean,

    >>Please tell me you also added column sorts for all headers on the main page and maybe other reports? << Not yet... but admin UI makeover and more power features in admin dashboard is the focus of next couple of releases. -Veena

  14. Awesome as usual 🙂 Not only every time you add so many interesting features but also they always act as great learning tool- “what else can be done through DAP in my site…”

  15. Hi Veena

    Yay!! Support for us ClickBankers – THANK YOU!

    But please can you clear up a few things with the new ClickBank integration:

    1. <>

    I’m not sure I follow you here: ClickBank makes us send people to the Thank You page after completing the Order Page. Where are you suggesting we send them instead?

    2. <>

    Surely if they abort then the purchase is unsuccessful? Does DAP create an account for people who abandon the cart?

    Many thanks again,
    Graeme

  16. Great job, I was waiting for this before switching to Infusionsoft.
    Lots of other cool features here as well. Can’t wait!
    Kevin

  17. Hi Graeme,

    Great question.

    >> 1. <> I’m not sure I follow you here: ClickBank makes us send people to the Thank You page after completing the Order Page. Where are you suggesting we send them instead? << Just set the Thank You URL in CB to point to the dap autologin script. When you set the Thank You url, also include a redirect tag that will tell the script where to land the users upon login. The buyers will not see the URL of the DAP script on their browser. It will be transparent to them. They will automatically get logged in and redirected to the FINAL landing page when they click on the 'Access My Purchase' button in CB. The final landing page could be a generic Thank You page or you can send them straight to the 'downloads' page as the users are already logged in! Now what makes the DAP integration with CB unique is that unlike some of our competitors that fully rely on users clicking on the 'access my purchase' button for their membership account to be created (often resulting in users NOT getting access to membership after purchase if they close browser or forget to click on the 'access my purchase' button), DAP has a backdoor where regardless of what the users do after purchase, as long as their purchase is successful, account will get created in DAP and the users will also receive a thank you email with their login credentials! In addition to automated login, in this release of DAP, CB refunds/cancellations are also completely automated. See this document for details: www.digitalaccesspass.com/doc/clickbank-auto-login/ >> 2. Surely if they abort then the purchase is unsuccessful? Does DAP create an account for people who abandon the cart? << Yes, DAP will create account for people that abandon the cart. The users will still get access to purchased content instantly. DAP has a unique integration with CB with no gaps. Regardless of what the users do after purchase, the account WILL get created in DAP. DAP does not just rely on user action to create membership account :). Hope this helps! Thanks, Veena

  18. Congratulations! You are always makes DAP better and implement what clients ask. I see many new integration with various services, but the most important at the moment for me is to fix compatibility with Headway Themes. PLEASE

  19. Nice to see the arpReach integration. I installed the new version on a few sites, just need to play with it more. I’m also set to test the RapidMailer plugin. Although it’s new, it looks like a nice plugin. Any chance you would be looking at that for an integration sometime in the future?

    I have also tried a number of other membership plugins, but came back to DAP. You guys are great at coming up with new ideas and have an active development plan, compared to some others that have just changed an interface, but added nothing new and exciting. Keep up the good work.

    Mike M.

  20. Ravi and Veena,
    Thank you so much for this new release – great work!

    I have a question about the DAP -> Infusionsoft integration. Is there a way now with the 2-way communication that I can send the password that DAP generates to Infusionsoft to include in a welcome email? Right now I have to send 2 emails, one from DAP with login information and one from Infusionsoft in a pretty format with other information. It would be nice to send one pretty email!

    Also, I’m wondering about logging into DAP accounts with a Facebook account. I know you were considering this feature. Is it included in this release? (I didn’t see this in your notes, so I’m thinking not and would love to know its priority.)

    Again, thank you for everything you do.

    –Karen

  21. Ravi, Veena, you have truly outdone yourselves this time. We’ll put hasExpiredAccessTo and all the PayPal cancel/refund options to use immediately after this comes out of beta! I can’t wait.

  22. Ravi and Veena..
    So excited to see this release…yet again making DAP the class leader in my mind.

    I use DAP on all my sites as the HUB for everything…

    Using the plugin system and the integration with just about everything means.. I can do stuff like..

    Run my software licence management (integrates with dlguard)
    Adds people to my auto responders..
    Does all the usual membership stuff.
    Syncs with JVZoo..
    I also use 2Checkout for some sites..
    And normal paypal buttons..with coupons.. very cool.
    and lastly vbulletin and now infusionsoft.

    Also..keeping it separate from wordpress is a big plus…as it doesn’t crawl to a halt if WordPress does.

    I could go on…

    There is no better system out there for sure… and I’ve used the very responsive support too.

    Congrats to you both.. DAP will continue to be the leader I can see a bright future.

    Paul

It's a one line change to the DAP plugin code to do so. We will release this update to 4.6 (to send password to Infusionsoft) tonight. We do not have an Infusionsoft account, but if you do, you can test it and let us know how it goes :). Thanks, Veena

    Congrats to you both.. DAP will continue to be the leader I can see a bright future. << Thanks Paul. DAP has become so big and powerful that even we at times forget about all the things it can do or all the things you can make it do :). We appreciate your support. -Veena

  25. Veena,

    Terrific update. Lots of small tweaks to make our lives easier.

    I’m manually generating receipts to my members (who can write off the subscription as a training expense) at least 2-3 times a week! And with our move to Stripe, it’ll be useful to show the CC Update info just to Stripe users – thanks for that.

    I also like the Unique Users report. Been dying for an easy way to see precisely how many members we have at any point in time. With several different products – there’s overlap and our reports have been messy and low confidence.

    Request: I would like to see DAP show me on the Admin Home how many active Uniques I have for each of my subscription products.

    Request: Also useful would be a report showing me how many new subscriptions vs. how many new cancellations over a given time period.

    Great work!

  26. Thanks Patrick!

    Please send us a list of everything on your wishlist for the admin report/stats. We are going to redo the admin report in the next 2-3 months. So your feedback and suggestions for improvement are very welcome.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  27. Hi Patrick,

    This new version already includes reporting on total unique users as well as unique members by product. It also shows you clearly which subscription products have how many unique members. Once you upgrade, see how it looks, and if you have any feedback, please do let us know via a ticket and we’ll certainly include it in a future release.

    Cheers!

  28. It would be awesome if you would also integrate with Sendy (Sendy.co). In my opinion, the ability to incorporate Sendy’s service in conjuction with Amazon SES would make DAP a powerful low-cost leading contender for email marketing. Keep up the great work!

  29. Hi Ray,

    Yes, makes sense. We came close to implementing Sendy integration in this release but turned out to be a lot more work than we expected. It’s certainly on our to-do list for future.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  30. Hi There,

    What, if anything, must we do in order to make the ONTRAPORT>DAP integration work. Am setting up a deep ONTRAPORT integration for TheFresh20.com. While we’ll be using PilotPress to handle show/hide for pages and page content, client does want to be able to use the PDF protection that DAP offers. What must we do on our end (ONTRAPORT) to faciliate this integration for them? Also, how far off are you from taking this release out of BETA?

    Thanks!

  31. Hi Tobin,

    If you want to use Ontraport to sell subscription products, it wont integrate with DAP because when we checked a few months ago, Ontraport does not send notifications (IPN) to 3rd party systems after successful subscription payments. If that’s not true anymore, we will take another look at the integration.

    But if you want to sell one-off products via Ontraport, you can integrate it with DAP.

    DAP 4.6 release is pretty stable now. We will take it out of beta next week.

    We are now getting ready to release DAP 4.7 beta!

    Thanks,
    Veena

  32. Hi Veena,

    I love the changes to your site! It’s getting much easier to navigate around. I keep finding things out about DAP that I didn’t know it would do.

    Question though:
    Does DAP support PHP 5.4 ?

    I searched through the release history but didn’t see any reference to it.

  33. Thanks Joe :).

    >>Does DAP support PHP 5.4 ? << Yes, DAP supports php 5.4.x. If after upgrade to php 5.4.x, you notice unexpected errors or 'undefined/warning' messages, please make sure to add this to your wp-config.php or /dap/dap-config.php file: error_reporting(0); Or open a support ticket with us and we will edit the files. Thanks, Veena

  34. This release is looking really good!

    I’d like it even better if you would, before you finalize it,
    Enable Email Broadcasts to be Scheduled to be sent on a specified DATE and TIME

    That would really be useful!

  35. Hi Robert,

    >>Enable Email Broadcasts to be Scheduled to be sent on a specified DATE and TIME << We have this on our to-do list. Sorry cannot include it in 4.6 but we will certainly include it in a future release of DAP. Thanks, Veena
