  • Do you want to restrict registration to certain events to logged in members only but still have other events open to the public? If the answer to the above question is yes, then this extension is for you. This extension allows you to set a flag to any event so registration is restricted to those that have a current membership.
     

  • A custom data set called “Member only event?” Is created once this extension has been installed. The custom data has been set to be used for Events and the option “Is this Custom Data Set public?” is unchecked so that this information is not visible on the event info page. Some default Pre-form Help text has also been set which can be amended as required.


     

  • The extension also comes with a UI to set membership statuses for members that should be eligible to register for member only...

The Civi Summit was a great event - full of lots of nice surprises. One that stands out for me was that what started out as some wishful thinking - namely having the ability to provide on-page tours/tutorials - ended up with us being able to beta test a 'proof of concept' before we left.

While some amongst us (ahem) were sampling the whiskey and fine IPAs late in the evening along to the strumming of the musically-able folk, others remained focussed on their laptops - and in Coleman's case this meant getting us a working prototype of a tour/tutorial system for civi pages.

This will give us all the ability to create user guidance on the screen, with settings to determine which Group members get which tutorials, whether they can skip/defer and come back to them later, multi-language/translation options and lots more.

You will even be able to daisy-chain your tutorials together so a new user can take themselves on a very quick but comprehensive tour of the many...

I had always been thinking of developing a mobile app for CiviCRM and in the process of achieving the same, I have released an initial version of my mobile app just for Android named as SMARTCIVI.

What is Smartcivi?

Smartcivi is an Android mobile application for CiviCRM which is used for displaying CiviCRM content in Mobile Application – For now smartcivi is just a read only application.

In this version of SmartCivi you will have the following option listing a basic information of CiviCRM Data in the following.

  1. Login Page
  2. Dashboard
  3. Profile
  4. Contribution
  5. Membership

             

Login Page: Allows you to get connected with your CiviCRM website using the below details

It's here! Thanks to over $16,000 contributed by 24 individuals and organizations, we are pleased to announce the official release of the Contact Layout Editor. The success of this Make-It-Happen campaign is a tribute to the power of the CiviCRM user community coming together to create something that benefits everyone. Originally seed funded by the Wikimedia Foundation (BIG thanks to WMF for this!), the Contact Layout Editor MIH went on to raise funds from these incredible community members:

Do you need to collect a "real" signature from your contacts and store it on their contact record?

If you use Drupal Webform you can embed an electronic signature directly using the new webform_civicrm_esign module developed by MJW Consulting and Northbridge Digital.

The signature is saved to a "file" type custom field on a contact or case activity.  It uses the signature_pad library.  Setup instructions can be found in the README for the module on github.

One of the most requested features in CiviCRM over the years has been to tweak the Contact Summary page. That's the main Contact view, the "heart" of CiviCRM. And now, thanks to 12 donors contributing a total of $12,860.00 in the past month, we've almost reached our goal. Extension development is underway and beta testers have been wowed with the power and ease of designing their own Contact Summary layout with only a few clicks. Some key features of the extension:

  • Drag-n-drop blocks around to configure your layout.
  • Set each block as collapible, collapsed by default, or always open.
  • Create new blocks from scratch with any combination of core and custom fields.
  • Create multiple layouts, and select the layout to be shown on a per-contact or per-user basis.

Can't wait to try it yourself?...

In this blog post I want to show how you could use the new form processor extension to handle form submissions from an external website.

My (imaginary) organisation provides buddies for young people and the form on our website is submitted when somebody is interested in becoming a buddy for a teenager. We ask for the name, address, e-mail, telephone number, birth date and gender.

After the person has submitted the form one of our employees should make an intake phone call with the person and this should happen within a month.

When the form is submitted we want to have the following situation in CiviCRM:

  • A new individual with subtype Buddy is created
  • The new individual is added to the group 'Interested in becoming a buddy'
  • An activity of type 'Intake' is added and scheduled a month ahead

In this blog post I am going to show how you could create...

The constituents of NGOs and nonprofits regularly leave the workplace to work with the local communities or vulnerable groups. As a result, members of organisations often lack an access to the CRM system and cannot find the necessary information on their cases during the fieldwork. Agiliway has developed a mobile application for CiviCRM - CiviMobile - that allows organisations’ members to reach their CiviCRM databases anywhere and anytime .

The first basic version of CiviMobile allows users to establish a secure connection to the CiviCRM databases and search for the necessary information. In particular, the current...

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.

So what is new in CiviRules? Here is a comprehensive list of what we did:

  • removed all the managed entities for CiviRules actions, conditions and triggers and replaced them with inserts. We have also removed the existing records in civicrm_managed. This solved quite a few reported issues

  • added 3 conditions to be used with Events:

    1. Event...
