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.
We are thinking about creating a native CiviCRM extension Someone Else Pays.
I just published a small extension (funded by Amnesty International Vlaanderen) to prevent the REST API requests still coming through when the site is in maintenance mode.
The extension is CiviCRM native and the structure is based on the CiviCRM User Framework. However, as I have little to no experience with a CMS other than Drupal, I have only implemented the Drupal module. Would be really great if others could add the same trick for the other CMS's!
Some of you will know, use and might even love the CiviRules extension. We certainly do! Quite a few of the organizations we support with their CiviCRM stuff use and love it, and judging by the question on StackExchange and issues and pull requests on GitHub quite a few more do too!
