Parish Online News - Annotate Tool, BHIB Deal, Upcoming Events (POSTPONED)



We've got a lot to talk about this month, including upcoming events, updates to the annotation tool and how to get Parish Online for free.

See more information below:

Annotate Tool Update

The Annotate Tool has been given a major upgrade and will be rolling out to Parish Online accounts over the next few weeks.

The main upgrades to the new tool are:

  • You can now see changes you make to the styling immediately (previously you'd have to save to see the changes).
  • It's now possible to edit the geometry and styling of an annotation object
  • There are now quick links and buttons to help you use annotate objects for performing Data Extracts

We hope you like the new tool. We've already updated the user guide which includes a video showing it in action.


Free Parish Online Reminder



Over the last year many Local Councils have been taking up BHIB Council Insurance's offer of a free Parish Online subscription as part of their new 3-year policies. This saves Local Council's money and promotes best practice for managing council assets.

If your insurance is due this year then make sure you get a quote from BHIB Councils Insurance. Don't worry if your Parish Online subscription doesn't line up to your insurance, we can sort that out.
