    • A fresh coat of paint. The entire site was given an updated design that will look great on any device and any screen size using Responsive Web Design.
    • A new navigation menu that collapses to an icon on mobile devices to optimize the space of every screen.
    • The login system was reimagined so you no longer are taken to a separate page to log in, but can do so through a login menu built right into the navigation that is activated by rolling your mouse over “login” or tapping on mobile devices.
    • Retrieval of forgotten usernames. The ability to reset passwords already existed but many users forget their usernames as well. By entering your email address you will receive your username in an email.
    • Full-site navigation through a footer navigation menu. Some older browsers may not handle the new navigation menus at the top as effectively as modern browsers, so the entire site map is included on each page in the footer.
    • Altar Servers will now be able to access their schedule as well as switch with other servers. The schedule will show the team number assigned to a Mass, and upon clicking the number, they can view the altar servers in that team and any switches that have been made.
  • LITPLAN (v6)
    • The litPlan has been around for a long time (longer than I’ve been at St. Kieran) and over that time tremendous improvements have been made. Here’s the latest:
    • A new accordion style that greatly improves efficiency when switching between litPlans. Previously the page was reloaded each time a new litPlan was selected. They are now all on the same page and you can toggle which one you’d like to view. This is especially beneficial on mobile devices.
    • On wider screens, a second column appears to select any litPlan on the page without having to scroll down.
    • Weekday litPlans. A separate application has been created for weekday Masses based on the weekend litPlan application.
    • The song detail button has been removed. If you would like to go to the song’s detail page, you simply need to click the song title now.
    • Since multiple litPlans are now loaded on a single page, you cannot link to a individual litPlan. An option to open the litPlan on a new page has been added. This will be helpful in direct linking to a litPlan.
    • Admin: Ability to create a new litPlan based on existing
    • Admin controls added to litPlans to eliminate need for separate pages.
    • Reduced links to single cell to save space on smaller screens
    • Liturgical Color Added
    • The Control Panel is where you are taken when you sign in. It is meant to be a central hub to view all of your ministries and your activity within them. It shows the dates you are scheduled to be a cantor, lector, serve, etc. It also shows your absent activity for the choir.
    • NEWSFEED. A new section has been added called “Newsfeed.” If there is pertinent information for your ministry it will be added here. It is a smart newsfeed that is filtered to only show the relevant information to the ministries for which you are signed up.
    • Times have been added to dates  under each category so you know exactly what Mass you are scheduled to minister.
    • Given the title "Control Panel"
    • Users information added to bottom of CP.
    • Link to edit profile at bottom of CP.
    • litPlan notifications. You may become annoyed if you have printed a litPlan only to find out it has been changed when you arrive at a Mass or rehearsal.  You can now sign up to receive notifications any time a litPlan is changed! This option is available in your profile page.
    • Rehearsal plan notifications. Choir members can now choose to be notified when a rehearsal plan has been updated if they are going to be absent so you will always know what is missed. This option is available in the “Manage Absences” page.
    • Readings have been added to the lector schedule so you will know what readings to prepare. If there are more than one option you will likely see both listed until the week of that Mass when it will be updated.
    • The Lector schedule now features a responsive two-column design to view more dates in less space.
    • Lector: New responsive navigation menu that is more consisten with site UI.
    • Lector: Admin delete option added.
    • Cantor: Only members of the Contemporary Group can sign up for 4:30 Mass
    • Ability to know when a rehearsal is cancelled.
    • Ability to know when two weeks of music will be rehearsed
    • The absent list is now tucked away inside a dropdown for each date.
    • The link to mark yourself as absent is now tucked inside of this dropdown as well.
    • Admin ability to edit/delete attached to each date.
    • Your profile now has two new options:
      • Checkbox if you need a CD (so I know exactly how many to burn)
      • Checkbox if you need a litPlan. Many of you print them out and do not need them.
    • The choir calendar has been completely revamped to be more useful:
    • You can now view both past and future dates on the same page. This is useful if you missed a rehearsal and want to see what was covered.
    • You can view the number absent without having to open the plan.
    • On the rehearsal detail page, you can now scroll through many more dates using the top calendar. This works great with touch controls! (TouchCarousel)
    • Each rehearsal plan now contains an “updated” field so you know when the rehearsal plan was updated.
    • There is now a documents section added to each rehearsal plan. If you miss, you will be able to download any handouts that are given (not including litPlans and music that already linked in the litPlan)
    • You can now quickly mark yourself as absent for that day using the “I’m Absent!” button instead of being taken to the separate page. If you wish to turn on email notifications, you will still need to visit the absent manage page.
    • Manage Absent link added to individual rehearsal plans
    • Email updates to those on absent list
  • MISC.
    • Admin menu eliminated and combined into other menus/pages
