Introducing a new extension: Event Listing by Type

Do you send regurlary emails to your contacts to let them know about all of the upcoming events of a particular type (i.e. member only, conference, fundraiser, training, etc.)?

Cividesk has developed an useful extension that allows you to display in an email all the events of a particular type with the start and end dates in a listing format without having to enter each event manually in the listing. Once the extension is installed a token for each event type is made available to include in your email template.

Improvements to CiviCRM that benefit nonprofit organizations world-wide

Over the past few months, Cividesk has made improvements and completed bug fixes in report templates as suggested and sponsored by our customers. Not only do all Cividesk clients benefit from these improvements but so does the entire CiviCRM community. We have already contributed these changes to the CiviCRM Core software as part of our committment as a Sustaining Contributor.

New features include:

New extension: Discount Price for Members Only

Have you ever wanted to make the member price option available in an event registration form only to good standing members (ie. New, Current or Grace status)? This way, only these members can take advantage of a discounted price as one of their exclusive benefits!

Cividesk developed this new feature so the member rate for an event is only displayed when the logged-in user has a good standing membership.

New Functionality: Add multiple activities for a single participant

Have you ever wondered if you could add multiple activities for a single participant to an event? Cividesk has added a functionality that will do just that!

Search for a participant following your desired criteria and in the bulk actions you should be able to see the "Add activity" option for your participant. It's that easy!

This functionality has been sponsored by one of our customers and will be contributed back to the CiviCRM Core Team as a part of our giving back to the CiviCRM community.

 

'One click' process for printing contribution receipts

Cividesk is proud to be an active contributor to the CiviCRM community since 2011. We contribute to the project every month with new code, code fixes, by hosting events and more.

Most recently, Cividesk added a new functionality which gives CiviCRM users the ability to print a contribution receipt directly from the User Dashboard. Until now, only the invoice could be printed from the Dashboard.

Partners in open source: Contributing back to CiviCRM

Cividesk values the opportunity to support open source initiatives, partly because giving back is a cornerstone of our company culture, but also because we all benefit so much from open source software. Therefore, it is important to us to advocate for more community participation and collaboration to work on maintaining and improving CiviCRM. So, is it worth it to contribute time and effort to CiviCRM? Yes. 100%. And absolutely. Not only does it benefit us, but it also benefits our clients and so many other nonprofits worldwide.

Customize the Order of Appearance for Relationship Types

Cividesk is proud to be an active contributor to the CiviCRM community since 2011. We contribute to the project every month with new code, code fixes, by hosting events and more.

Most recently, Cividesk added a very helpful functionality that displays the relationships of a contact by order of preference. This allows you to customize which relationship types should be seen at the top based on your chosen priorities. This is particularly useful if a contact has a large amount of relationships so that you can ensure that the most important ones are visible first.

Assignee notifications can now be configured to meet your needs

You may already know that CiviCRM lets you send notifications to an activity assignee based on activity type. Perhaps you noticed that, in the past, it was only an ON/OFF option, meaning you could either send assignee notifications for ALL activities or NONE.

We are happy to announce that the ability to choose the activity type for which CiviCRM users want to send notifications is available to our customers. This is just another way that CiviCRM can be customized to meet your needs and make daily tasks more efficient.
