Its not just a numbers game

Submitted by Parvez on 14.08.15

CiviCRM stumbled into my life back in 2007 when I was evaluating future products for the closed source consultancy who employed me. Who decided to look into open source? Well that was me! I’d been in IT for a while and could see the changes in software were coming, no longer were the niche technology stacks that giants such as Oracle and Microsoft owned proving to barriers, instead open technology and the power of the enthusiast guided by the brilliant were taking shape.

Giving Back: Yoga for the People

Submitted by cividesk on 04.08.15

Yoga for the People (YFP) is a 100% volunteer-run nonprofit organization in Denver, Colorado. They believe that all people should have access to the benefits of a consistent yoga practice, and one of our primary operations is pairing volunteer yoga teachers with host-sites.
As a 100% volunteer-run nonprofit organization, Yoga for the People relies on the generosity of the community to meet its mission. They could not afford the services of a consultant to setup a CRM.

Make It Happen - CiviCRM and Drupal 8

Submitted by petednz on 03.08.15

A Make It Happen page has been set up for getting CiviCRM ready to roll when Drupal 8 hits the stores.

This Make It Happen is for $10,000 to fix breakages as the final release candidates of Drupal 8 roll out (such as dealing with Symfony conflicts), and setting it up to work with BuildKit so we can provide a Demo site as part of the set of demo sites.

Utilising Custom searches for data cleanup and contact integrity checking

Submitted by seamuslee on 01.08.15

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.

Pro-bono Drupal work available

Submitted by cividesk on 29.07.15

Cividesk is one of the leading CiviCRM service providers. Giving Back is a cornerstone of our company culture, and we proudly support many charitable and humanitarian organizations with pro-bono or reduced-cost services. While our Giving back program is usually full, we still have a few Drupal openings this summer and would therefore be glad to support nonprofits that need Drupal work with pro-bono services.
