    Great to hear from you, hope all is well!

    The TYFCB slips online was modeled directly inline with the official paper slips program in BNI. In the paper version, the TYFCB is an anonymous entry (for many reasons, some of them for client confidentiality).

    From the BNI Slips document (http://support.bniconnect.com/entries/40561363-BNI-Slips-Program-Overview):
    Note: By assigning this amount to the person who gave the referral resulting in the business, this 
    will preserve confidentiality of each individual’s income. In addition, this will show each member’s value as a “referral giver” to the other members of the chapter.

    Although a notification and\or seeing both sides of the transaction may be desired by some, it could be "illegal" for others. Most notably this could cause doctors, lawyers and other professionals to not be able to participate in the TYFCB process.

    In the meantime, the best way to make another member aware is by letting them know and, if there is mutual agreement, announcing it during the "I have" portion of the meeting.

    Hope this helps!

    I agree!  I was about to send a request in for this change to the system.  Its an important part of our process!

    Professions that need to keep it confidential can have anonymous TYFB without amount. That way the recommending party will know that TYFB has been submitted, but sensitive data should not be revealed. It makes it hard to track who thanked you
