Community Giving

Cividesk gives back

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.

If you represent a volunteer-run non-profit organization providing free and secular services to the underprivileged, please contact us so we can determine the best way to support your organization - whether this is solution design, professional hosting, software customization, technical support or training for your staff.

New Extension in Progress: User Dashboard settings

Ever wished that the CiviCRM contact dashboard could be configured to display (or not display) information specific to your organization's needs? 

A powerful extension in development by Cividesk will allow you to replace any hard coded fields for related contact with profiles that contain only those fields that you wish to see. Once the extension is fully developed and installed, you will be able to:

Extended Report Improvements

CiviCRM is shipped with a lot of useful core reports - report templates can be used to create different report instances to query your data. There is also a very useful third party extension called "Extended Reports" that includes additional report templates that provide more flexibility and complexity.

Cividesk has contributed back a lot of improvements made to both core reports and the Extended Reports extension. For example, a new functionality has been added to the Extended Report "Contribution Pivot Chart" that displays contribution amounts by month or by year:

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.

More than 420 hours contributed back to CiviCRM in 2018!

Cividesk strongly advocates for community participation and collaboration to work on maintaining continued progress and improvement of CiviCRM.

We pride ourselves on being involved in several aspects of ongoing projects and needs. 2018 has been an eventful year and we are happy to report that we have contributed to CiviCRM in a variety of ways:

Chase the Music

A new member of our Giving Back program

Chase the Music gives children battling critical conditions love, hope, strength and joy. We do this with original music - composed and performed just for them.

The impact of Chase the Music programs begins with the child. The children (that we write and perform for) are undergoing situations that no child should. The gift of a personal commissioned piece of music is like no other. It's unique and created just for that child. Artists are closely aligned with the child to facilitate the creation of truly meaningful music. This alignment gets in their heads and they are changed by the experience.
