The final Get ready for new donorflex Regional Training Day has been moved, due to client demand.
The gathering on Thursday, October 5 will now happen in the Cinema at Birminghams Midlands Arts Centre, rather than the venues adjacent Hexagon Theatre, which sold out with bookings still coming in.
The event has been organised at the request of clients that were unable or werent ready to attend one of the nine Regional Training Days, in March, that intensified preparations for the new version of donorflex.
Delegates were able to immerse themselves in the six-step plan to implementation more of which further on in this article and those users who join us at the final RTD will do the same.
The venue has been chosen to preserve the informal, intimate mood of our traditional regional user group roadshows as well as being located centrally for delegates travelling from across the UK.
The continuing demand for seats is understandable.
Firstly, the cost is the same as for our March events, which is great value for money at £50 plus VAT per delegate.
Secondly, it will be a re-run of the March events, with the exception of the session that studies the way that Marketing Communications are managed in new donorflex.
The Fundraising Preference Service finalised its approach to consent and preference management shortly after the March RTDs, so October 5 is our first opportunity to show users the great new functionality to a large audience.
Heres how the six-step plan, which was launched at Marchs RTDs, will be outlined to RTD attendees in October:
As ever, do this via the Bookings button, up there on the top right of the menu.
This area is open only to the donorflex Liaison Manager (DLM) at each of our client organisations. He or she is the colleague whose login credentials access areas of the website that are off-limits to other users.
Bear in mind that, if your DLM has already logged in to the websites client-only My donorflex area, he or she will need to re-enter their login credentials when the booking system requests them.
Organisations that dont attend an RTD will need to engage with a donorflex client development consultant which will be less cost-effective than an RTD booking to plan their way forward.
Clients running donorflex on a non-SQL server platform will not be able to enjoy the great features of the new product until they upgrade to SQL although well be delighted to see them at the RTD in October. Likewise, however, please engage with us about the way forward to being SQL-equipped.
We work with the key drivers of the UK charity sector.
