New setting available in 5.17 should improve performance on most sites

1 month 1 week ago

Credit goes to other people but I wanted to point out a new setting now available as of 5.17.0 that should speed up most sites. At worst it should have no effect. It's like that button on traffic light poles - you press it and sometimes it does nothing but sometimes the light changes faster. Either way you're no worse off, except they now have your fingerprints on file.

Announcing New Release of CiviMobile 4.1

1 month 1 week ago

As the CiviMobile version numbers continue to increment, the user experience of the mobile application improves with exponential growth. Members of NGOs and nonprofits are no longer office bound by a desktop CiviCRM application. What they have instead is a core CiviCRM functionality at their fingertips every time and everywhere. Our new release of CiviMobile 4.1 further refines the app introducing custom field functionality, among other updates.

Insert data from a CSV file into CiviCRM

1 month 2 weeks ago

This blog post explains how you could insert data from a CSV file into CiviCRM. We use Pentaho Data Integration to read the CSV file and to call a Form Processor in CiviCRM.

This blog post is an example and when you follow the steps described in this post you can run the same import as me.

Pentaho is a tool to extract and transform data.

The form processor is an extension to create end points for forms in CiviCRM. Those end points can then be called through the api.
