Let Your Leaders Prepare Your Roster for You

For many of you, the annual leadership roster involves mail contact to allow leadership donors to confirm their information. While this may be done during the e-Pledge process, not all leadership donors are involved in it.

However, for leadership donors with e-mail, you can develop a survey that presents the current information as the default value and imports data back into the system to capture any changes. Become more familiar with Andar surveys by visiting Customer Support.

Working Too Hard on e-Pledge Campaign Setup?

Are you copying web notes and options to each organization account that runs an e-Pledge campaign? If you are, you are working too hard!

e-Community is designed to work efficiently. In fact, it is designed to be virtually maintenance free! Where e-Pledge is concerned, your e-Pledge staff should be able to set up EVERY organization in your database at the same time! The secret is in the Tailoring Account.

The Tailoring Account should be used to set up all of your common e-Pledge settings. These settings will apply to all organizations and employees. When this has been done, all of your organizations are ready!

Once you have this in place, you simply need to add the web options that are exceptions to the Tailoring Account. Of course this is simplified and every setup is different, but this is the general concept that everything is based upon.

As always our Customer Care department is ready to assist you in making your tasks easier. Let us know when you are ready to stress less!

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.
