Seeing a way forward for visually impaired users - 二, 10/17/2017 - 03:28
Having made amazing strides over the last year in terms of the user interface, some of the folk attending this years UK CiviSprint took a look at what improvements could be made in terms of accessibility.   Issues have been raised in recent years by screen reader users and people who are not comfortable using a mouse or trackpad.  After testing the new bootstrap-based Shoreditch theme, with a variety of assistive technology, several issues were identified and put to the team of developers.   

2017 Dev Training and Sprint - 五, 10/13/2017 - 19:50

Writing on the train back to London from the CivicCRM Sprint at Duvale Priory in mid-Devon, I can see why some people are willing to travel from across the world for the Sprint: it is a great way to spend a week. I went for the Developer Training, delivered by Parvez and Raj of Veda Consulting. The training was held for two days alongside a week's sprint (5 days + 2 travel days). I stayed for the rest of the Sprint.

My experience of the UK CiviCRM 2017 Sprint - 四, 10/12/2017 - 19:30
Following CiviCon London many of us made our way to Devon for the CiviSprint.    A group of around 40+ developers, installers and users gathered together for 6 days to work jointly on CiviCRM projects. By coming together in one place, we were able to move projects forward in a way that is challenging when everyone is scattered around the world and involved in their own work and family commitments. The overall aim being to take CiviCRM forward by sharing knowledge.  

Integrating Email Client Into CiviCRM - 一, 10/09/2017 - 23:13

One of the main reasons our partners choose to set up a CiviCRM application is its extended functionality developed specifically for managing all contacts, communications, records and activities of an organization in one place.

Yet one of our clients put a broader meaning into the concept single CiviCRM-based solution and requested new functionality that would allow users to manage their emails (check and read incoming emails, compose new messages, etc.) from the CRM instead of shifting between different applications.

When is a conference better than a conference? When it's a CiviCon! - 一, 10/09/2017 - 04:25

London 2017 was my first time at a CiviCon event so not sure what to expect, but I have been to many business conferences over the years.  So, what was so different about this one?  Essentially, nothing; held in a major city i.e. London, in a conference centre, a welcome desk with a goody bag and a programme, introduction, sessions – you get the picture!

It’s hard to put your finger on why it was different - better - but I am sure it has to do with the ethos of CiviCRM and why the organisers and attendees were there; a shared vision and a unified purpose.

What exactly was different? Well, as soon as I walked into the main conference room, I felt I was amongst friends, like-minded people.

Announcing a new GDPR extension - 五, 10/06/2017 - 15:34

Our new extension aims to enable charities/organisations to manage their supporters in a GDPR compliant manner. GDPR in itself does not introduce many new directives however it does make organisation appointed officials directly responsible for any breach in directive and therefore has a degree of responsibility which had been missing from previous iterations.

Did that Scheduled Reminders get delivered or did it bounce? And what was in those Receipts and Invoices? - 五, 10/06/2017 - 06:30

Have you ever wondered whether those Event or Membership Reminders actually get delivered?

And what about those automatic Receipts that go out? Ever wished you could see what the heck was actually being sent?

Well now you can thanks to Fuzion's new extension for transactional mail.

Greetings from this year’s Maryland Code/QA Sprint - 五, 09/29/2017 - 23:27

This was my first sprint; I came somewhat prepared from reading other ‘first sprint’ blogs in that I brought a laptop set up with Ubuntu and Buildkit. Beyond that technical hurdle I came with no ideas of what to expect, hoping that I could both learn and contribute.

The sprint was at a beautiful old house in the middle of a large farm in Maryland complete with cows, a fire pit, and cable Internet (albeit probably the thinnest cable any of us have experienced in awhile)!

CiviCon UK Sponsor post: Registrations in seconds, logins without passwords - 五, 09/15/2017 - 20:39

A big thank you to all our CiviCON UK Sponsors. Here's a special post from Gold Sponsor Yoti:


Over the last 15 years I’ve probably been responsible for around 50 or so websites or microsites that in some way or another have tried to gather people’s data.  Either to enter into an event, join a forum or buy something.  And like most other marketeers I’ve been obsessed by two things.  Funnels and Data. i.e how easily are people signing up and how much do I now know about my customers.  I’ve always known that by asking people for more information there was a danger people would drop out of my acquisition funnel but we marketeers are hungry for data. We want it all and we want it now.

CiviCRM and Backdrop CMS, two projects who focus on helping non-profits, fit together quite nicely. You can now easily install CiviCRM on Backdrop and benefit from the robust Drupal-like architecture with an extra helping of the user-friendliness added by Backdrop.
