CiviCRM allows us to bring all benefits and capabilities of a large commercial CRM and
donor management system to medium and large non-profits at a fraction of the cost. CiviCRM also allows smaller non-profits to benefit from an integrated solution for donor management, events, bulk email, etc. substantially increasing their effectiveness as compared to managing a variety of nonintegrated software and spreadsheets. Thanks to a strong CiviCRM community, CiviCRM’s functionality continues to advance and CiviCRM’s market continues to grow rapidly.
I have used Civi in past jobs, and I often recommend it to clients and organizations that I volunteer with. So often it's the most affordable and user-friendly way to track organizational contacts and related activities.
I am trying to build a stronger End-user community withing CiviCRM to increase cooperation among non-profits using CiviCRM in similar ways. Going to CiviCON and being a part of the community at the conference has made me want to make the End-user community more robust. I think the open-source and non-profit focused nature of CiviCRM lends itself to strong community building as is an aspect of CiviCRM that is exciting!
A collection of tokens we've been asked to do at various points including
- today's date
- name of other contact in a relationship (this gives the name of one persion with x relationship to the given contact - only in a->b direction - useful for getting spouse's name if you know there will only ever be one)
- expiry date of current membership (if exists) - will retrieve the membership that finishes latest
If there is a contact with a b relationship to this contact that has the same kind of membership as this contact, this extension creates a button in the edit membership screen that allows the user set that membership as the parent membership.
Allows users to set an owner membership for an individual membership, provided a relationship exists between the two contacts and the primary member has a membership of the same type as the individual membership.
This extension facilitates uploading CSVs via the CiviCRM import interface. Useful for bulk uploading events or campaigns etc.
The civicrm api entity can be set to, for example, Event or Campaign. (Note that for entities like Contribution Pages you need to use API names - either ContributionPage or contribution_page). The same permissions apply as for any api create call.
To use you need to go to civicrm/csvimporter/import . More notes are in the README.
PayZang has developed a payment processor plugin for CiviCRM (4.2.9) on Drupal that allows organizations to accept ACH and Credit/Debit Card payments. This plugin allows you to do recurring as well one-time payments using both ACH and Credit/Debit Cards. In addition, it allows you to add ACH as a payment instrument and enables accepting contributions, memberships and event fees using ACH and Credit/Debit cards. PayZang allows you to plugin any existing merchant account from First Data, Global, Elavon, TSYS and Vantiv.
Prevent users from overwriting their record while trying to add a new participant / contribution / membership.
CiviCRM by default pre-selects your own contact details when you register to an event (or other public visible forms) if you are logged in. It is generally a good thing, but might lead to errors, for instance when a team member will overwrite their own contact record, or if a person forwards an invitation they received to someone else. This extension makes the first and last name fields read only, to prevent these mistakes.
Existing Campaign Monitor Lists will not be touched or synced. Everytime the Campgain Monitor Settings are saved the lists are saved, lists are created for the selected groups (if they do not already exist).
This Plugin has the same functionality as CiviMember Roles Sync module in Drupal. The plugin checks the Membership details when the user logins/logouts, and updates the WordPress Role according to the Rules set in Association Rules. The manual synchronize option is also available. It has one more field to set Expiry Role ie, assign role if the membership is expired.
