Ever been stuck wanting to change the relationships for a membership type? Have we got a solution for you!
In CiviCRM currently, if a Membership Type has Membership records in CiviCRM there is no way in the CiviCRM administration interface to change the Relationship Types that will be used to inherit this membership. We now have an CiviCRM extension which solves this problem.
Olá desde Lisboa! Sou o Josh e sou um membro da equipa principal do CiviCRM. Estou neste momento sediado em Lisboa e, após conversar com algumas organizações sem fins lucrativos, comecei a pensar organizar um encontro mensal em Portugal para dar a conhecer o CiviCRM e também para dar formação e apoio. Usas CiviCRM ou estás interessado em aprender? Vives em Lisboa?
Register to participate in the upcoming 2-hour online training session, "Customize your Database with Custom Fields and Profiles" offered by Cividesk on Wed, August 14th at 9 am MT/ 10 am CT/ 11 am ET.
In early July we announced that the contributor log as we know it would come to an end, replaced by time tracking in Gitlab (the official cutover day is August 15, by the way). And, shortly thereafter, we began a discussion within the Core Team about how we manage, track and value contributions to the project. We’ve also been discussing with various stakeholders how CiviCRM is funded, and invariably we end up reviewing both financial support and in-kind contributions.
In the coming weeks, you can expect a series of changes going into the development pipeline to support the CiviCRM-Drupal 8 integration. Individually, these will seem unrelated and disjoint - they may not explicitly reference “D8”. I wanted to spend a moment to discuss the concept which ties them together: the clean install process, which will make Civi-D8 an equal member of the Civi CMS club and a good base for continued development and maintenance.
Come along to the Sydney CiviCRM Meetup, Thurs Aug 1st 2019 6PM!
This second meetup of the year leaves no stone unturned on Contacts, the primary entity in the CiviCRM database, and we look forward to your participation whether it be to learn, share your experiences with others, raise questions or join the discussion.
Cividesk is offering our 2-hour online training for new users on Events on Thursday, August 8th at 10 am MT/12 pm ET.
Register now for this informative, live training session that allows plenty of time for questions. Learn how to create events in CiviCRM and manage online registration, track participants and communicate more effectively with them before and after the event.
Come along to the second meetup of 2019, a workshop style session discussing challenges submitted by attendees in advance.
This session will focus on 'Contacts' - we invite participants to 'lead' on a topic, and share your experiences with the group.
Although it seems an obvious topic, there's a lot more to Contacts than meets they eye, and being the primary 'entity' in the CiviCRM database, a lot hangs on getting them right.
Suggested topics from the following items:
For starters, over 200 Drupal 8 sites already run CiviCRM! This post is based on my own research and conversations with those involved, and is intended to be informative and encouraging. As you may know, CiviCRM works with no less than four CMS at the moment, including three versions of Drupal, two 'officially'. Understandably with Drupal 7 end-of-support scheduled for Nov 2021, there has been recent discussion amongst those using or considering Drupal about which to use for your website.
Join Cividesk instructor Susan Engeman for the Fundamentals of Membership Management on Tuesday, July 23rd at 2 pm PT/ 3 pm MT/ 5 pm ET (Wed. July 24th 7 am AEST) for a two hour interactive online training to get you started with CiviMember.
Register now as there are only several spots left for this popular training session!
