NGO Connect Feature: Giving Summaries
By now, many of you are familiar with Saleforce’s NGO Connect (formerly named roundCause). It is the cornerstone in Salesforce’s comprehensive CRM offering – Salesforce1 for Nonprofits. NGO Connect has leapfrogged both the Nonprofit Starter Pack (NPSP) and traditional fundraising applications to become the long-awaited “next generation” solution that eliminates data silos, provides the much-desired “360-degree view” of constituents, and drives increased engagement and fundraising.
Heller Consulting has put together a list of the top 5 features of NGO Connect in their paper, NGO Connect – Maximizing its Potential for You. A few weeks ago, we went over ease of access and viewing. Today we will be covering Giving Summaries.
The burden of manual entry and recalculation is officially off of your shoulders! A very popular component of NGO Connect, Giving Summaries calculate calendar-year-to-date and lifetime totals of a donor’s giving that are visible on an account without running a report. These summaries are calculated for hard credits, soft credits, and automatically recalculate whenever a gift is made, saving you and your organization loads of time.
Giving Summaries provide fundraisers with important data about dates and amounts with a quick glance at the account. Need these in report form? No problem! Giving summaries fields are easy to drop into reports as criteria, output, or sort fields.
While the current Giving Summaries total Membership Giving only, the next release will offer both Donation and Membership giving totals.
