What is this CAPTCHA thing anyway?

I am not a robot!You've seen it before, the dreaded CAPTCHA test. Sometimes it's really difficult to tell what those squiggly letters are meant to be, and sStreet Signsometimes it is hard to tell if it's a street sign or a billboard! What if all of the squares are street signs?? If the test is too hard for me, am I a ROBOT??

A CAPTCHA test is a really important security feature to help protect your database from being flooded with data from other computers called 'Robots' or 'bots.'  These computers scan websites for fillable forms and submit false information. Since a computer is filling out the form, it can potentially submit hundreds of forms in a very short amount of time; filling your database with useless data quickly. 

CAPTCHA means: Completely Automated Public Test to tell Computers and Humans Apart - It is meant to confuse a 'bot' by creating a situation where the computer cannot parse the information presented like the human brain can. With the CAPTCHA in place the 'bot' cannot complete the form - keeping your database clean and safe!

Recently, we've added a feature called reCAPTCHA that uses the latest CAPTCHA technology. Check out this page for setup instructions or give us a call for assistance.

Online Giving and Volunteering Unite

Andar e-Volunteer provides volunteer matching management through an easy-to-use website. As a member of the Andar/360 e-Community Suite of products, e-Volunteer is fully integrated into Andar’s fundraising database, allowing organizations to have a complete view of the members of their community. Since volunteers may also make donations, Andar has the ability to display both volunteering and giving activities in one integrated individual account and portal. The website management functions of the Andar e-Community Suite allow volunteers and donors to experience one consistently branded website.

Google reCAPTCHA to Replace Andar simple CAPTCHA

Would you like to use the Google reCAPTCHA instead of the simple Andar/360 default? Follow these simple directions with the 2018.02 service pack loaded.

    1. Open https://www.google.com/recaptcha/.
    2. Click on the Get reCAPTCHA button (if logged in click "My reCAPTCHA").
    3. Select reCAPTCHA V2 and register your domain. It will generate two keys: Site key and Secret key. 
    4. Copy the 2 keys and paste them into Andar > System preferences > e-Community > e-Community - General > CAPTCHA settings.

**The new Google reCAPTCHA will work only if both keys are entered.


Update your website look

Is your e-Pledge or other Andar web tools mobile friendly? Does your site match your public website? Core changes to e-Community and e-Pledge, specifically internal code structure, were made to accommodate more flexible mobile skin designs and to better support accessibility as well as multilingual design. We have released two built-in mobile skins based on the United Way Worldwide design, one in blue and the other in red.

Don't wait, we can help you migrate your old e-Pledge sites to the new mobile responsive look. Call our help desk today to schedule your move... call toll free (877) 479-3780.

Single Sign On ? SAML

Prepare for ePledge season now.  With SAML, companies can place a link to your e-Pledge on their own internal web page. When employees click the link, they are automatically logged into your e-Pledge without needing a User ID or Password. It's quick and easy. Even better, new employees can be created or updated on the fly!  No uploads!

Did you know? If a company has more than one location setup may not be required for each location.

SAML only needs to be set up on the parent organization. One setup only will cover the parent organization and all its subsidiary organizations.

Don't know what SAML is?

We can help or set it up for you, contact Eric.

Volunteer and Giving UNITE!

By: Eric Crammond

Integration is the theme for 2018 here at Andar Software. Recently I was asked how we "marry" ePledge and eVolunteer. The answer is easy - just add the web menu items to the desired role for the desired end users. Did you know you can combine any of the web menu items together to create a unique and custom online experience?

Volunteer, pledge, and register for an event all in one site!
