The NEW Activity
Registration module is available for districts that also use the School Store. The module provides districts with a tool for managing activities that require a registration process including a registration packet, payment, and a roster.
Registration and payments are completed in the
School Store. Activities display in the School Store based on registration
dates that the district controls. An Activity Roster displays all registered
students and allows the district to identify which students have paid and
completed their required forms.
To use the Activity Registration module,
districts must first set up supplemental Activity Registration documents in the
Custom Forms tool and create an Ad Hoc filter for selecting eligible students.
For more information, see the Activity Registration documentation.

With this update, buyers will receive a message if the quantity they want purchase exceeds the number available for an inventory tracked product. Also, users will now see a message if an item's price changed after they added it to their cart.
