    You can now delete or correct a slip that was entered in error through the "Review My Slips" reports.  Here is a guide for how to use that function:

    I am in Thailand and used your system. It is marvelous. I love it but would like to add a few comments. The entered date should be self entered, shouldn't it? Last week I sent the hard copy slip to members and entered information to the system later. The date was not matched with the hard copy slip. The referral status is also a problem since it is a "must" field. How to complete this field with inside referral since it is to oneself. Last but not least, my inputs have not been updated by the system and shown draft all the time. Hope you find my comment useful.

    Anyhow, thank you for developing this system, I love it indeed.

    At this time, cross chapter referrals are limited to only those regions within a single "business unit". In some cases that will be a single region, in others it may be multiple regions with the same Executive Director.

    The reason "why" it is done this way is that there is still some inconsistency globally in the processing of online slips. Currently, there are still a few countries that will only begin using the online slips later this year. In addition, the ability to pass cross chapter is still a regional option. At some point after the whole world is both using the online slips AND allowing cross chapter activity we will be able to pass a referral globally. Although I do not have a time frame for when this will happen, we are all very much looking forward to this future enhancement!

    That being said, you can still use BNI Connect to FIND and CONTACT a person in another state or region in order to establish the relationship and pass the referral, even if it can't be "turned in" using BNI Connect.  Here is a guide for how to do that:

    When you have a guest, how do you add it to the referral page?  There is no spot for guest...

    Debbie,

    When the VP or Visitor Host enters the visitors into BNI Connect using this process:

    http://support.bniconnect.com/entries/21735341-Chapter-Operations-Adding-a-Visitor

    The credit is then automatically added on the PALMS report and you will have a 1 in your "V" column.  Some chapters would use a referral slip to track this using the paper process, but now that this is done through the visitor entry, the additional form is not necessary.

    Hope this helps!

    this doesn't address if you receive a referral from a visitor and how to record that.  also you have on item #1 where you would be saying thank you for a referral you are saying thank you for closed business....appears to be an error in cutting and pasting

    Jody,

    While it is great that we occasionally receive (and give) referrals to visitors, the PALMS report was meant to track these types of transactions between chapter members.  As the visitors are not yet members of the chapter, this activity, while beneficial to our businesses, is not recorded as an official statistic.

    Naveed,

    Great to hear from you - hope all is well!

    The ability to submit cross chapter slips is dictated by each region and\or country.  At this time, it appears that your region India>Bangalore North East has this feature disallowed at this time.  Please contact your regional Executive Director who will be able to answer when and if this functionality will become available in your area.

    Hope this helps!

    Jeremy,

    I would like to send a referral to someone in a Washington State chapter.  It appears I cannot do this, according to your post on March 24th of this year, because that feature is not turned on in my region.  When will that feature be available system wide?  It appears it's been "coming" for quite sometime.

    Thanks!

    Hello Jeremy, Would like to know if there are plans to add the ability to easily browse other BNI chapter members to share referrals? Unless we already know information about that member, we can't find them without looking on the front-facing regional website under the "Find A Member" section. It helps being able to search for keywords and see the industry the other members are within. I would think this feature would be extremely helpful for members to pass referrals from chapter to chapter easily since all chapters don't have members within each category. I'm new to BNI, so mayeb there is something I'm missing in the BNI Connect UI where I can easily achieve this without having to tab back and forth from the front-acing website and BNI Connect, and if so, could you please let me know how to easily do this because the other members would find this useful as well. thanks - Nick

    This was previously posted:   Do you know if it has been updated?  I would love this feature!

    The programming team is currently evaluating the possibility of an editable slip and we look forward to a potential enhancement for a future release!

    Hello Jeremy,

    After reading prior posts, I'm guessing the Cross Chapter Referrals out of region is still a work in progress.  I am in need of this feature availability.  Thank you.

    Laura ...

    Great to hear from you ... happy to help!

    Cross-chapter referrals are possible within most Regions within the United States, but not between Regions at this time.

    Out-of-region national and international referrals will be possible as soon as cross-chapter referrals are fully adapted by countries around the world, which is currently underway and we hope to see completed within the near future.

    For now, though, out-of-region referrals will have to be done the old-fashion way via direct contact with the other member, and submission of a paper slip at members' weekly meetings.

    Hope that this helps ...
