In october 2019 I spend a few days with the community at the Summit in Barcelona, and it was inspiring as usual! On the way back out of all the things we discussed two themes kept going around in my head. The first was the need for more marketing material that was felt by all present, and the second one was that in my opinion CiviCRM = software + community.
We are about to start the election process for the Community Council of CiviCRM and we would like to invite you to register as a voter or nominate yourself as a candidate.
The Community Council of CiviCRM has been tasked at the Barcelona Civi Summit:
I have just published a new extension Former Communication Data.
The extension simply saves emailaddresses, phone numbers and address details in a separate tab on the contact summary when they are deleted as you can see in the attached screen print.
On Tuesday 11 September 2018 we had quite an enjoyable and interesting CiviCRM meetup in Antwerp.
A total of 32 participants gathered at the University of Antwerp Middelheim campus to share their stories around CiviCRM.
Diet Civi is a new "working" group within the CiviCRM community.
Our main objectives are to
improve CiviCRM’s ability to support a variety of different workflows on the common core data model.
define, coordinate, foster, and fund projects to achieve this.
CiviRules 2.0 is now available for you all!
We (Jaap Jansma, Klaas Eikelboom and me) are about to complete a little CiviRules sprint of 2 days (funded by CiviCooP). We have fixed quite a few issues, closed some that we thought were not applicable any more, introduced a few new conditions and actions and updated the documentation. And we are about to round it off with the new release CiviRules 2.0 and moving our repository to the CiviCRM GitLab server. We expect to do this tonight or tomorrow morning.
I have just published the Invoice Address API (https://civicrm.org/extensions/invoice-address-api).
The development of the extension was funded by Domus Medica vzw. They are a membership organization specifically for GP's (general practitioner) in Flanders and Brussels.
At Amnesty International Vlaanderen we are starting a Petition Journey. The aim is to improve the engagement of people that sign a petition for the first time as their first point of contact with Amnesty. We then would like to send them an email with a survey immediately, and then for 5 weeks an email each week. One will be informing with a video link, one will be an invitation to register for an event in the same campaign, one will be to invite them to sign another petition etc.
Just arrived back home after spending a few days with the CiviCRM community in Brussels. And as always I really enjoyed myself and returned inspired and full of inspiration.
