Interface and design
Two aspects of CiviCRM’s broad roadmap involve improving the user interface and adopting a flexible form builder, both of which are well underway. In some cases, there’s overlap in the end product in that work on one or the other results in an overall better user experience. That’s the case with work that’s currently underway that addresses CiviCRM’s export interface.
Have you ever wished you could configure the actions you can perform after a search in CiviCRM?
It is now possible to do this with the Search Action Designer extension.
An example use case
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.
The recent DevCamp in New Jersey presented several sessions on new developments in CiviCRM land as well as showcased several of its inner workings. One session presented by Core Team member Tim Otten stood out for me: Form Builder. If you’re like me, you listen to folks like Tim with a great deal of respect and appreciation for what they say (and do).
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 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.
