Learning Opportunities

"Back to Basics" classes with CiviCRM PLUS New Year's Special Promotion

Work on maximizing your time and efficiency in 2017 by learning more about CiviCRM! Cividesk will be offering all four of our on-line “Basics” classes during the month of January:

1. Contacts: "Administer your database and manage your contacts"
2. Events: "Manage your events with CiviCRM"
3. Membership: "Manage your membership with CiviCRM"
4. Contributions: "Manage your donations, sponsorships and other financial contributions"

It's fundraising season - our "Managing a Fundraising Campaign" class can help!

At Cividesk, we understand non-profits and know that the end of year fundraising campaign is a critical time of the year for reaching out to past and potential donors. For this reason, we designed our online class, “Managing a Fundraising Campaign with CiviCRM” to focus on what non-profit staff members need to know to run a succesful campaign with CiviCRM. During this class, you will learn all the steps involved in executing a successful fundraising campaign.

What's the difference between "Send Mail to Contact" and CiviMail?

CiviCRM has two ways for you to contact your constituents via email: Send Mail to Contact and CiviMail. Though the end result is the same, they are created differently and offer different benefits. During our November Featured CiviTip, we will discuss the difference between Sending an Email and a CiviMail Mailing.

Featured CiviTip: "Batch Update Via Profiles"

Class Date: September 29, 2016
Do you want to save time? Are you looking for easy ways to be more efficient in CiviCRM? Then this CiviTip is for you!
Learn how to update a large number of records all at once using "Profiles." For example, let's say you would like to make note that a Thank You note has been sent to all attendees of your event. You don't have to go into each individual record to do this. Use a Batch Update and it's done!

Personalized CiviCRM Online Training Sessions

Is your staff in need of CiviCRM training but would like a more personalized and interactive class? If so, you may be interested in scheduling a private training session for one of our many training courses. Classes are scheduled based on your staff’s availability and the curriculum can be customized to fit your organization’s needs. If preferred, training classes can be conducted in your instance of CiviCRM rather than our training demo site. We also schedule plenty of time for questions and practice exercises that you can try first-hand using our screen share technology!  

Managing your Events in CiviCRM

August 23, 2016 | 10 am – 12 pm MT | Live training webinar

Learn how to create an on-line event page in CiviCRM so that participants can learn about the event and easily register for it from your website. Their data is automatically recorded in CiviCRM, which streamlines the registration process. We will go step by step through the configuration process for creating a new event in CiviCRM and discuss the various registration options.
