  1. Move Multiple Queries to Folders

    I wish we could move multiple queries simultaneously to a folder at the same time when organizing them, rather than one by painful one. I can not possibly be the first to suggest this, but couldn't find it in search.

    • Cleaning Code Tables

      When cleaning a code table which has a lot of entries in it, it would be really helpful if it didn't jump back up to the top of the table once you had cleaned one entry.

      • Being able to sort query results by clicking on the column headers.

        It would be handy to be able to sort query results just by clicking the column headers. I would also like to be able to sort search results this way.

          • Allow Supervisor to be able to disconnect users through Database Connection Viewer plug-in

            I'm sure we used to be able to do this, but now it's gone and needs to be done through the Blackbaud Management Console, which is installed on the dbase server and I don't have access to. Could we have the option back where the RE Supervisor can do it?

            • add package as a filter on appeal reports

              Appeal reports should be able to be easily filtered by package - it is a basic subset of an appeal and is the most common filter I need.

              • Sort by constituent ID

                When sorting by constituent ID in query, it does it like it's text. So all the numbers that start with 2 are together whether they're 4 or 5 digits long. That means that 26357 will appear before 378. Can it be changed to sort numerically, please?

                • Fix problems with former solicitor relationships

                  Former Solicitors should work like any database expects - add an end date and it is considered former. Unfortunately it is not that easy in RE and querying on current solicitors is difficult and outputting only the current solicititor in output of a query (so you can use it in a pivot report or dashboard) is impossible.

                  You have to make this much easier if you are going to continue to only allow query output to be used for these features!

                  Anyone else have suggestions where former solicitor relationships are not currently working for them?

                  • Allow Chimpegration be used with Blackbaud Raiser's Edge in a Hosted Environment

                    Third-party plugins and tools like Zeidman Development's Chimpegration are terrific for self-hosted Raiser's Edge database. Hosted users should be able to take advantage of these external tools as well.

                      We are always glad to hear feedback from Raiser’s Edge users. We have heard this concern about third-party and custom plugins in our hosted Raiser’s Edge offering. We are working on compelling near-term and long-term solutions to allow more add-ons in our Hosting offering. We will have more to share at BBCon and in coming weeks!

                    • Query Categories

                      Query Categories - It would be useful to be able to multiple select queries to move into a category - rather than having to drag and drop separately, ie Ctrl+Select like you can in Windows Explorer.

                      • logout options

                        Change the function of the red X in the upper right corner to "exit and sign out." This would shift the burden of understanding logout options to power users rather than regular users, who are accustomed to the red X being the method to completely close most applications. It is a constant struggle in my organization to get users completely out of the system in the evenings and on weekends. They leave records open and hit the red X, thinking that everything closes and that they are completely out of the system.

                        • Allow maximizing and/or resizing of data entry windows

                          Many of your data entry windows cannot be maximized or resized in any way; an example is the proposal update window, but there are many other examples. The inability to maximize or resize these is especially annoying when the contents of the pull down lists are a great deal wider than the display area of the fields.

                          • Query using wild cards in the One Of table

                            When querying for numerous five digit zip codes in an area, it would be great to use the One Of operator in the Query function employing a wild card character. Currently this is done by creating separate Equal To statements for each five digit zip code using the five digit zip code plus wild card character.

                            • Cancel button: query, report, export

                              If it is a complex query, report, export, sometimes it will freeze or hang for a long time. It would be nice to be able to "cancel" without closing so that an edit can be made to the query, export, or report. Sometimes I have ran the query and then seen a mistake that could make it more difficult to run and wanted to change but had to wait forever to be able to go back to criteria.

                                I would really like to be able to assign a priority level for Constituent Codes for all records. For example in Configuration, if your Constituency Code table has Alumni, Former Student, Friend, etc. we could (in the Constituency Code Table) define Alumni as 1st Priority, Friend as 2nd Priority, etc. regardless of how they are listed in the constituent's individual record on Bio2.

                                I have seen constituency codes on Bio2 get shuffled around incorrectly, which alters how that record will show up in queries/exports/reports. If the priority was defined in the table itself rather than the order listed on the…

                                  • Allow user to choose additional fields to print on Batch Commit Control Report

                                    Allow user to include desired fields on Batch Commit Contorl Report. Possible optional fields: appeal, GL post date, pay method, campaign. While data in fields can be found by exporting batch grid or by query, it would be easier if it were part of control report.

                                    • Ability to create a solicitor goal for the number of completed actions

                                      It would be immensly helpful to be able to enter a solicitor goal for the number of actions to be completed (in a given time frame and optionally by campaign or fund or appeal). In a world of decreased donor giving, our development team (and many others I would think) is being asked to evaluate performance on completed activity in terms of a number of completed actions as well as dollar amounts raised.

                                      • Action Calendar

                                        For those of us who do better with a visual calendar rather than a list of deadlines and due dates...
                                        Have an dashboard feature that calendarizes actions from an action query, then puts them into an actual calendar that you can view (weekly or monthly) right on the dashboard. That way, I can see that I have a report due to XX foundation on January 1, and a grant deadline on January 15 for X foundation, etc. I have this in manual form on my wall, but it would be great to have this visual functionality built right into Raiser's…

                                        • Security for "Reconciliation" icon

                                          Add an option in security to hide the "Reconciliation" icon from the toolbar.
