We’ve released an update to our charity events tools which make them even more useful for charities and non-profits.
In case you’re not familiar with what we do, here’s a quick update.
If you’re running a charity event that needs people to register in advance, or buy tickets, Echoleft is for you. We provide an easy to use tool where you can add your event, we process payments, handle group bookings, allow you to ask for any information you need during registrations, there are also built-in donations and fundraising pages.
One of the most common questions we get asked is about exporting registrant data to databases such as Donorflex, Harlequin and Raiser’s Edge etc., so we’ve been working hard on making that as easy as possible.
You can ask for any data you need when you’re registering people for your event, but we know that people don’t always enter their details in the format you need it. So, for every field that you ask for, we let you choose from a range of formatting options when we export the data for your database.
You can choose the column heading/title (the top row in an Excel spreadsheet), you can capitalise first letters, force all upper-case or lower-case characters, remove punctuation and even ‘sentence case’ enter fields. You can even combine these if you want to. You can also choose the order of your fields in the exports, in case you need them to match an existing template.
This means that whatever questions you’re asking to people registering or buying tickets for your charity event, you know that you’ll be able to get the data formatted just how you need it.
If you’re running a charity event, or planning one and you want to chat about how we can make registrations a little easier for your team, and keep your supporters engaged, I’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org, you can also find out more at https://www.echoleft.com/charities
