Create Personalized Content for Your Donors

Have you ever wanted to display a graphic on your website for only one company and not others? Do you want to show a slideshow only on your home page and not the other pages of your website? 

You can do this by using Targets. Targets show or hide web content. Think of a Target as a "group of friends" on Facebook (your family, your co-workers, your classmates in high school, your close friends, etc.) that you use to show or hide your posts on Facebook. For example, "I want only my close friends to see this photo, all my other friends should not see it." Another example, "I want all my classmates in high school except Joe to see this message."

Targets can be used to show or hide features to groups of people, and are reusable in different portlets. Learn how to use Targets in this handy tutorial.

32-bit Windows Support

Important Reminder: Andar Software will no longer support Windows 32-bit as of January 2020.

As Andar Software continues to grow and take advantage of new technology, we find it more challenging to support old technology. We're currently planning to upgrade Andar/360's internal engine which only supports 64-bit computers — and we'll be moving to this technology in January 2020. As a result, Andar/360 will only run on 64-bit computers beginning with version 2020.01. (Older versions of Andar/360 will continue to work on both 32-bit and 64-bit computers.)

As such, it's an excellent time for you to make an inventory of your computers. The “System” settings on your computers will hopefully show “System type: 64-bit Operating System.” You can also go to AndarSoftware.com/MyInfo to see if any 32-bit machines used Andar/360 in the last month. You'll only see an alert on this page if you have 32-bit machines.
