“What happened today with our campaigns?” and “How can I quickly edit a recent record?” are questions that all nonprofit fundraising professionals ask on a daily basis. With many fundraising solutions, finding the answer to these questions can be a time consuming and arduous process of delving into databases. At RallyBound, we’ve been working hard to add new features to give our customers better insights into their campaigns, and we’ve recently rolled out an elegant, and first-in-the-industry, solution for this problem called Activity Stream.
Activity Stream is the latest addition to our New Admin, which we released earlier this year. With Activity Stream, users at the organizational level can see a real-time stream (grouped daily) of a variety of actions taken by fundraisers and donors across all of the campaigns that an organization is currently running. Each record in the Activity Stream includes a timestamp and links directly to each individual record as well as the specific campaign and personal fundraising page and/or team fundraising page. Profile pictures of the fundraiser or team mentioned are also included (if the user has uploaded a profile picture).
We’ve broken these actions down into “Transactions,” “Registrations,” and “Milestones,” each of one is color-coded in the stream to easily digest at a glance. With Transactions, nonprofit managers can see and quickly make edits to every donation that comes in. Any event tickets sold will also be shown under Transactions. Additionally, we’ve added a dollar-amount-slider that can be used to filter donations and tickets:
“Registrations” actions include signing up / creating an account for an campaign or joining a fundraising team. Changing a fundraising goal amount will be shown under the Milestones actions:
