We're well into the New Year, and you know what that means, you're probably still having to change those 7's into 8's.
Here’s some of our new features that we've released for the new year:
Check out the details of this video below:
Our Employer Matching feature, which was in beta, has been released to fly into all of creation. Employer Matching can be one of the easiest ways to increase your giving this year.
Did you know that there are thousands of companies who will match an employee’s charitable donation? Of course not, because it’s hard to find out which companies have it and how to process that matched donation. But our Employer Matching functionality solves all of that! All a donor needs to do is lookup to see if their employer has a matching donation program (which takes a single click) and and then our Employer Matching feature handles the rest.

We know that life happens sometimes. And your registrants aren’t always able to show up to your awesome event. It can be a headache managing all those transfer requests and emails but our new Transfers feature allows your registrants to transfer their registration to another willing and able participant without your having to be involved or even lift a finger.
That’s right! It is all automated! Gain back hours of your life, or at least minutes, with this awesome new feature!
This feature is live in RedPodium and is in beta testing for RegFox. Message in to our customer success team to learn how to become a beta tester.

Race day can be pretty chaotic. Between the wave times, registration costs, and T-shirt inventories, the numbers begin to blend together. Thankfully, with our new Bibs feature, anyone who is racing that day, will be identified with a number.
Vanity can be a good thing and we’re so happy to announce vanity bibs!
This allows registrants to purchase their own number if they so desire. If your registrants prefer to have a specific number that they love using, they can claim that number all for themselves and you can claim a little extra profit. Bibs are still in beta testing, but once activated, you’ll find bib numbers at the top tab within your campaign.
For all the GivingFuel customers, we have 2 new enhancements that extend the flexibility of fund tracking.
First, is the ability to allow for “other” funds. This permits the donor to enter a custom fund that may not be on your current list. It could be a special visit from an author, a campaign on Giving Tuesday, or maybe a disaster relief fund. This way, your donors have more options to support your efforts.
Secondly, you can enable “notes” for the donor to provide along with their donation. If someone needs to add additional instructions or comments to their donation, they can easily add it.
Best of all, both of these will be exportable on each recurring donation that gets processed. Meaning, it’s now much easier than ever to track special projects month over month.
This new year is shaping up to be pretty brilliant. And we only have more surprises and delights to share with you soon. As always we’re available to message on that little button in the bottom right hand corner of your account, as well as a Costco sized load of help articles that are just waiting for your eyes to scan. Thanks for reading this update. We’re looking forward to everything to come!Happy New Year!
