September Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) Releases
The Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP), is the foundation of the Connected Nonprofit, and every two weeks we release new features, fixes and updates. To keep you in the loop about the great new updates coming out in NPSP, we’re providing a monthly roundup, so you can get the latest and greatest information on our product.
Enhancements to Batch Data Import
With new enhancements to our existing batch data import tools, organizations can now create batches that fit their individual needs, schedule them to run automatically, and manage batch post processing tasks, allowing for more efficient donation and campaign management, reporting and donor follow up. Enhancements include:
Batching: Setup and process donation import batches with specific configurations. This is useful for organizations that have donations coming in from multiple events, campaigns or integrations.
Scheduling: Process batches in the scheduled tasks that NPSP does each night or configure a new time, date or frequency. This allows administrators to save time by not having to manually process records and instead automate processes even further.
Custom Post Processing: After batch records are processed, perform additional tasks based on an organization’s custom Apex code. Examples include additional filtering, record updates or creation, or relationship creation between records.
Want to make use of these enhancements? Take a look at the NPSP Advanced User’s Guide to Importing Data for step-by-step instructions and an interesting use case.
If you’re new to the data import process or want step-by-step instructions for how to import data into NPSP, see NPSP Administrator’s Guide to Importing Donor Data.
We’ll be hosting a Batch Data Import with the Nonprofit Success Pack webinar on October 26th at 9am PST. Sign up today!
