With the new reality of living with Covid-19, it is difficult to host in-person meetings. At Plastic Pollution Coalition, we used to host in-person coalition meetings in several cities as a way for people to learn and network with others in their community. In June, we transitioned to doing webinars. Although it's difficult for people to network during webinars, we can still continue sharing best practices and have a dialogue with our community.

The Community Summit 2020

We had such plans for 2020 with a UK-based summit in wonderful Devon. Then the world turned upside down and we've all struggled to maintain the energy we had and drive that energy into some kind of virtual event that would give the community the same experience as our Summit/Sprint events do every October. So we need to own up to something finally, the idea of a 2020 Community Summit is a dream.

Your nonprofit doesn't have just one fundraising strategy. You have many. Think events, donor letters and appeals, e-newsletter blasts, planned giving, and capital campaigns. Each of these strategies typically targets a specific segment of your community, even if the funds raised impact the same budget line.

Registering multiple people for multiple different events - using Webforms - and LOTS of conditionals

We had a scenario where client runs a cluster of events, and folk sign up for these, and usually the registrants signs up for all events, but then they might invite mum to the Dinner, and brother John to the Talk, etc etc.

We wanted to achieve this on a single form with a single payment. We explored both CiviCart and Drupal Commerce but in the end concluded we could achieve this in a much lighter way with good old webforms.

The outcome is that up to 6 people can be registered for any combination of events, eg

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.

New field types in CiviCRM Entity - Picking the right tool for the job!

CiviCRM Entity is a contributed module for tightly integrating and extending CiviCRM with Drupal. This module exposes CiviCRM API entities as proper Drupal entity types. This is HUGE as it allows you to make CiviCRM data available within your favorite Drupal tools such as Rules, Views, and EntityReference. I’d like to present another advantage of Drupal entity types, and that is Drupal fields.

CiviCRM Event and CiviMail - Possible integration?

There has been some discussion in my organisation around possibly streamling the process and improvement process in regards to CiviEvents and Inviting people to come to the event. 

The senario is this, We have end users who create events such as come to our Phonebanking evening. Yet there is no way through the event create / configuration process to then create an invite email or similar that could go to a target group. Say there is a group already created of people who have expressed an interest in phone banking.

Many activities are organised by willing citizens and CVVE is the bridge between those citizens and the refuees. So to keep track of everything which is going CVVE needed an export of the events in their Google Calendar.

Event Registration based on Participant Roles

Pubblicato
2015-06-05 03:42
Written by

This extension facilitates the ability to register different participant roles for an event in CiviCRM. At the moment CiviCRM will default the role used during online registration to the role chosen when setting up the event. So all the participants from online event registration would have same participant role. The work around for achieving multiple participant roles registered for an event would be to do an offline registration for a person and then select the respective role while doing so or on Drupal installations to use Webform.

Financial Statement in CiviCRM

In one of my previous jobs in the UK I was a debt & welfare benefits adviser and we used an off the shelf case management system.  The cost for running it was quite significant - we paid about £1000 (UK GBP) per year for only 2 signons. This type of system is used by advice agencies throughout the UK, including the Citizens Advice Bureau.

Do you use CiviCRM for contributions, pledges, and related financial data? Does your organization use the financial reports in CiviCRM? Does your organization export data from CiviCRM to your general ledger? Or do you want to start doing some of these things?  If so, your input is needed on CiviAccounts.  (You do not need to be a CPA to give input, but having a general understanding of how CiviCRM financial areas work currently is helpful)
