Dealing with Inconsistent Images in Report Headers

In System Preferences, there is an option to include a URL to an image that will be included in report headers. You can find this option in System Preferences > Andar Reports > MIG > Report Headers > URL for report header image.

Some customers have encountered inconsistency in whether these images are displayed in all reports. This is typically due to how quickly the image may be retrieved from the network location as the report writing program will skip the image if it cannot be retrieved in two seconds. A solution to this challenge is to save the image in your File Library and use the URL from the File Library location.

Take a look at this project in Customer Support to learn more.

Find Lapsed Donors

Lapsed donors are individuals who have previously donated to your organization, but for some reason, they have stopped giving.

Discovering who your lapsed donors are is useful to increase your fundraising efforts. Once you know who they are, you can reach out to them to see if they'd like to donate again. Since they've donated in the past, they're already familiar with your organization, and your outreach should be very different from someone who has never given to you.

Find out who your lapsed donors are by watching this video series in Customer Support.

Extend Payment Schedules for Your Donors

In Andar, a payment cycle is 12 months. If a donor hasn't paid their pledge in full within 12 months, they are considered overdue. But, what if a donor makes a large pledge and asks for 18 months to pay it?

You can set up an extended payment schedule that continues beyond 12 months with the MIG module. Once in MIG, use the date specified option on the billing schedule to set up billing for 18 months.

Use Visuals to Understand Data

You can have a lot of data, but if you don't know how to read it, analyze it, and share it, then you might as well not use it. A great way to show some of your data is with the Prospecting Funnel Chart app.

The Prospecting Funnel Chart is a visual representation of where your prospects are currently positioned. It's a great visual way to share your data with other staff and departments in your organization.

The Prospecting Funnel Chart app will display a sales funnel using the same data as in the Prospect Metrics Analysis app. The app will give you a quick idea of the account manager's progress with the prospects. All prospect apps for the dashboard/bio tabs show current (unexpired) prospect records only. Take note: You need to have a MIG license to use this app.

Add this funnel to your dashboards today!
