        Hello everyone,

        Good news, we are planning to release this with version RE 7.95. Thank you for the feedback!

      • 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!

        • Bio 1 Contact Information: 'Email Addresses' as a default

          It would be great to be able to choose which tab in constituent record contact information section is shown when the constituent is opened. Some organisations are much more interested to see existing and valid email addresses than phone numbers.

          This is something that could be added to the user options.

          • Add Date Last Changed for Phone and Emails

            Now that phones and emails are separated from address, they should ALSO have a date last changed feature. Now, while glad to have phones off of address, finding when a phone or email has been changed is even worse as it is tied to the constituent and not to phones. So previously you "guess" because it was either an address or phone update.

            Now, you have no idea if it was a a title change, a birthdate, an address, a middle name, adding in a gift, etc.

            • Change your policy regarding third party customization in hosting!

              With so many organizations now moving to hosting their RE/FE installations (which is great), its a tragedy that your not allowed to use 3rd party plugins.

              Blackbaud has some amazing partners such as Ziedman Development, Omatic Software and Beyond Nines it would be awesome to see looking to develop an actual modern environment for blackbaud and create a freakin app marketplace for blackbaud? Something like what Omatic Software has done with App-O-Matic.

              Bottom line this post is to encourage them to at least start with allowing 3rd party applications in the hosting environment.

              • Add a notes field for each phone number on records

                Add a notes section so we can write the date the number was last checked that it was in service, best time to call, names for organizations, anything really you would like to note about each phone number.

                • Add "Use selected record" to the duplicate search window when called from Relationship menu of the relationship window

                  When user creates individual record and system finds suspected duplicate(s) there is an option (button) to "Use selected record". When user creates individual relationship RE performs exactly same search but window with results doesn't have the option to use selected record. Users have to close this window and perform manual search anyway which makes the duplicate search kind of useless in this instance. A lot of users just tend to click "Continue with save" creating duplicate records.
