Case studies and user stories
The Australian Greens developed 2 new custom searches to enable us to do data clean-up and to monitor for spam records that were coming into our system, mainly through the Drupal user registration form.
The first search (addresses needing fixing) has a number of different combinations to find different issues with addresses. This allows to check for where there is a state set but that doesn't match the set country or where the postcode isn't correct for Australian postcodes. All Australian Postcodes are numerical and are 3 or 4 digits in length.
The National Workers Union is a small trade union based in Trinidad and Tobago. For those whose geography is not so good, we are the southern most Caribbean island. On a map, we are a little dot just 11 miles off the coast of Venezuela.
In the summer of 2007, I was in my fourth year of volunteering for a very small organization, Friends of Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites. At the time, the organization had about 20 chapters statewide and just around 1,000 members. The spreadsheets that managed all these names and addresses had become too cumbersome and, as a tech-head from HP, I was asked to see if I could do anything about it. Like many small non-profits, the budget for the project was extremely limited.

CiviRules is live and doing effective automation!
Two weeks ago, Wednesday June 10th, MAF Norway started to use CiviRules on their live production site.
We did set up one single rule, which starting from that day, saves us for approximately 1 hour work pr. day. That is almost 15% of one persons workload throughout the year!
The Women's Fund of Santa Barbara (WFSB) is a collective donor group that enables women to combine their charitable donations into significant grants focused on the critical needs of women, children and families in Santa Barbara. The organization is run exclusively by a team of volunteers. Cividesk spoke with Mary Garton, Susan Robeck and Julie Capritto about making the transition to CiviCRM and how this solution has changed the way they manage their organization.
Amnesty International Flanders (AIVL) have been using CiviCRM for a couple of years now, initially with memberships mainly but lately more and more as a fundraising tool. They have implemented CiviBanking for their incoming bank transactions and are now in the process of testing CiviSepa for their direct debits. We (as CiviCooP) are part of their CiviCRM family and work together with them to support their processes in the best way we can, making the most of CiviCRM.
We received this message yesterday from our friend Steinar at MAF Norge:
