CiviEngage, at the moment, is a Drupal module that currently ships with the official CiviCRM Drupal release (see https://github.com/civicrm/civicrm-drupal/tree/7.x-master/modules/civicrm_engage, which ends up installed in sites/all/modules/civicrm/drupal/modules/civicrm_engage). That means you won't find it on drupal.org or any other drupal module site and ...

It seems that the long-term plan is to turn CiviEngage into an extension for CiviCRM (see here and here) and deprecate the module. I don't see much recent action on that front, so you might be right that a simple port to BackdropCMS from the Drupal7 module would be the quickest way to start using it in the meantime. In short: If you are able to help convert ...

There is a file css/civicrm.css within your CiviCRM codebase, and that's what determines the layout here, but you should not edit that. Instead, you have two good options for writing CSS that overrides the default CiviCRM CSS: Edit your site's theme. Theme CSS will take effect within CiviCRM forms. Create a custom CSS file. Put your file somewhere that ...

Welcome! Tags and Groups are concepts that apply to Contacts, not Contribution Pages. It depends what you want to do with the categorization, but Campaigns may be useful. If you don't see Campaigns in the top menu, you may need to enable the CiviCampaigns component at Administer > System Settings > Components

I don't think that is possible, but not for the reason you think. The problem is not whether or not the link gets rendered correctly, the problem is that AngularJS expects to launch a single-page-app, not load an html snippet into a tab. If you need to link to an angular page, you will need to do so as an actual link, and it will have to take the user away ...

You could add a custom field for the donors to effectively pick the campaigns they wish to donate to, then you could reallocate behind the scenes is one option. Another is to use shop items, these could result in separate contributions being created in CiviCRM for each item. Either approach would need a bit more then just config so to speak.

Yes. CiviCRM can manage fundraising volunteer management phone banking door knocking Get Out The Vote event management (think fundraising events, or getting folk for a door-knocking bash). As per my comment above though, what really matters is what you need to achieve your political goals.

A few points: The system creates a financial account automatically when you create a financial account, so there's not much extra effort. You will want to edit the financial account to put in the QuickBooks chart of account information. The general advice regarding Chart of Accounts (in QuickBooks or similar software - it's actually an accounting best ...

This is so that you can temporarily or permanently remove a campaign from being selected. If you have say 30 campaigns and 20 of them are completed, you don't really want them cluttering up the drop down lists when you create events etc. You only want the active campaigns.

Great use of campaigns. We've had similar situations and we've generally either written a custom search or a custom view(if you're using Drupal). I don't believe there is any built in functionality. It would be great to write a custom search and make it available in GitHub if you can make it generic enough.


2

Your question isn't completely clear to me. You can associate one person, or a few, with a campaign by creating a custom contact reference field for them. You could also search for individuals who have been involved in a campaign in some way, e.g., donating to it, from Search > Advanced Search. You could then make a smart group from the results.


2

The big thing you need is a way to associate line items with campaigns. This would be fairly simple to do with an additional table in an extension. Then, so long as campaigns were appropriately named, the extension could provide a drop-down on each line in a price set allowing the donor to specify the campaign. I'd suggest we also add a new field for ...

I would highly recommend you use the CiviCRM API to access this information. A php version would look something like this: $result = civicrm_api3('Activity', 'get', array( 'sequential' => 1, 'activity_type_id' => "Petition", 'options' => array('limit' => 1000), )); (Setting limit to be something larger than you would expect to get.) ...

Pleased to hear that you want to promote CiviCRM! This may not be the best place to ask this question. You may have better luck on the CiviCRM chat site. Alternatively you could search for a CiviCRM partner based in London and ask if they can help. You may also be interested in the CiviCRM meetup in London. Of course there are also the demo sites if ...

Have you tried to use CiviCase to simulate a project? You can then add relevant case roles to the case type 'Project' and retrieve all them as relationships with a specific case_id. This would be a good way to get all contacts relevant to a project? We have used a similar approach with one of our customers succesfully (although we added some stuff too as ...

The extension "Petition Email" should let you do this in CiviCRM.

I was overthinking this and missed the memo in green in my own screenshot. Another case where the solution is in the Reserved Profiles. Administer > Customize Data and Screens > Profiles > Reserved Profiles > Contribution Bulk Entry

So i have downloaded the files for all of the voters in PA. I have some questions Have other people loaded these types of files into Civi before and if so a. How do you keep track of things like if the person is a dem or rep or other b. How do you keep track of the times in which they have voted c. How do you keep track of the multiple districts ...

Ok, I worked it out for myself! Posting the answers here in case someone else runs into the same issue. The fundamental problem is that the location of Create Templates From Reports has changed from when the CiviCRM User Guide was created. So now it's Administer > CiviReport > Create New Report From Template Once there, you go to Survey Report (Detail) ...

Yes. You can add "Groups" as a field to a CiviCRM Profile. There's similar functionality available on Webform. If you use profiles, only groups with the Visibility setting of "Public Pages" will be available for the petition signer to click. If you use Webform, you can modify the widget to show a specific set of groups for that webform. Note that the ...

Found this while having the same problem. The solution is in the CiviCRM utilities Wordpress plugin - go to the plugin settings and there is a box you can tick to "fix the appearance of the WordPress Access Control form". I did that and the Access Controls came back in Civi.

I don't have this use case and am not sure how you want to engage your constituents with this information linkage, but one possible use is in reporting. You can filter on campaigns, so if you want a list of members that have a differentiator not based on amount or date of membership, then you might assign them to specific campaigns. Similarly, "campaign" can ...

The contributions hold the campaign at the time they were made so not affected. PCPs created also keep the old campaign against them (using my memory here!). Any new PCPs or contributions will use the current campaign against the contribution page that initiated them.

I was able to achieve this using webform in drupal

You're correct; the email UI (user interface) doesn't allow you to specify a campaign. However, the underlying database table is civicrm_activity, which DOES support storing an associated campaign. You could write an extension (or hire someone to write an extension) that adds this functionality to CiviCRM, and because the underlying table supports what you'...

First off, I realize I am extremely late to the party - but I just read this question in the midst of trying to resolve a similar issue where I needed to know what template variables are available to a PDF template. What I did to find template variables when {debug} isn't working for a direct download etc was: In /CRM/Core/Smarty.php, Line 192 temporarily ...

After enabling the Campaign module and adding your Campaign Type, Statuses, and Engagement Index (if relevant), you can add a new campaign from either the Campaign dashboard (using the Add Campaign button) or from the Campaign menu > New Campaign. From the docs:

It may help if you clarify the criteria around 'email blast to officials' but as I interpret it both 'send an email to an official' and 'sign up to a petition' can both be handled nicely using drupal webform and views. Send an email to an official: will depend how automatically you want the target to be identified, but you could set up a View search, enter ...

Pretty sure the code needs to be modified a little bit to allow you to do it by URL param. Shouldn't take but an hour or two.
