Hello MagicFolder fans. Omatic Software has made the decision to move all future development for MagicFolder exclusively to the AppOmatic platform for the Raiser's Edge. We've made this decision for several reasons: First, it is a much better user experience in AppOmatic to actually be able to see the contents of a constituent's MagicFolder directly from the constituent view without having to select an item from a dropdown menu to see if anything is in there (see screenshot below). Secondly, it is labor-intensive and expensive (especially for a free product!) to maintain two versions of the same software application. Thirdly, AppOmatic makes it significantly easier to roll out the MagicFolder install and future updates can be automatically distributed enterprise-wide in a snap (as can be done with any AppOmatic app). AppOmatic also allows much more granular control over who has access to either run or configure any individual apps, like MagicFolder. We made this decision based on these factors and the fact that every month we are adding new functionality to The Raiser's Edge through AppOmatic. If you have previous versions of MagicFolder you are welcome to keep them and use it, but there will be no further updates for the legacy version. I genuinely hope you'll join us with MagicFolder on the AppOmatic platform and continue to give us your feedback to make all our products better.
