Our new extension aims to enable charities/organisations to manage their supporters in a GDPR compliant manner. GDPR in itself does not introduce many new directives however it does make organisation appointed officials directly responsible for any breach in directive and therefore has a degree of responsibility which had been missing from previous iterations.

It’s important to understand that simply implementing an opt in process and assuming all contacts are opted out overnight is probably not what is best for your organisation, there are many factors to consider before determining that a formal opt in is required. For example a membership organisation is well within its rights to assume that member communications are assumed opt in unless the member explicitly opts out. Its also a fair assumption where contacts have been imported from third party fundraising systems, where they can represent your charity and they have stated they are happy to be...

Have you ever wondered whether those Event or Membership Reminders actually get delivered?

And what about those automatic Receipts that go out? Ever wished you could see what the heck was actually being sent?

Well now you can thanks to Fuzion's new extension for transactional mail.

With the help of funding from Agileware (Canberra, Australia), several Fuzion clients, and Fuzion's own contribution, we have put a couple of our extensions in to a single bundle to bring these goodies to a wider audience.

By default CiviCRM only performs bounce handling when sending via CiviMail, but not when sending transactional emails such as scheduled reminders, event registrations, contribution receipts and the like. This extension addresses that limitation.

How is this happening?

This extension creates a pseudo-...

Ginkgo Street Labs is pleased to announce the availability of CiviVolunteer 2.2.2 for CiviCRM 4.7.21 and above. Site administrators maintaining an older version of CiviCRM should upgrade core before upgrading CiviVolunteer.

This release includes five bugfixes. The most substantial of these is VOL-310, which arose from changes introduced to CiviCRM core's Angular integration in version 4.7.21 and which resulted in a more or less complete breakage of the extension. Thanks to Bob Silvern for bug reports and patch testing; Travis Megee and Eric Goldhagen for patch testing; Agileware for patch testing, contributed code, and funding; Eileen McNaughton, Fuzion, and Tadpole Collective for funding; and Tim Otten for providing various technical signposts.

This is important...

mosaico native email builder for civicrm compucorp and veda consulting

At Wanna Pixel, Inc., we have been excited about Mosaico, a drag-n-drop email builder native to CiviCRM, for quite awhile. Most designers and nonprofit staff alike have struggled to use the CiviCRM mailing feature to create responsive email campaigns. Three years ago, I wrote an article about the responsive template I created for CiviCRM users, hoping to help ease this struggle.

Before Mosaico, there were two options for email building when using CiviCRM.

  • Use responsive html templates and spend hours editing them whenever you wanted to make a change.
  • Integrate with MailChimp and lose some data and token access.

CiviCRM Entity Reference Field is a submodule of the CiviCRM Entity project. One of the many advantages of installing the CiviCRM Entity module is the ability to use Drupal’s Entity Reference module to reference CiviCRM data from nodes, terms, or other entity types. Many people are using the Inline Entity Form module, which provides field widgets that allow you to create, edit, or delete a referenced entity from the parent form.

If you reference CiviCRM contacts via an Entity Reference field and use Inline Entity Form, you’ll often want to include the ability for the user to create or edit subsidiary CiviCRM entity types, such as the email, phone, and address entities. This can get tricky with CiviCRM integration. A regular entity reference field stores a target entity id in a Drupal field table of the Drupal database.  CiviCRM Addresses are stored in the CiviCRM database, and can be created by different types of users and in many different ways. In addition, Drupal...
