The Latest Fundly Product Enhancements

12 Apr

Hello everyone!   I’m excited to update you all on some of the recent Product updates we have made to the Fundly platform.  We’ve been busy (as usual) and pushed out yet another round of engagement enhancements that will lead our users to successful fundraising!

Supporter and Donor Commenting!
Have you ever wanted to leave a message for your friend after you have donated or supported them?  Now you can!  Any donor or new supporter is prompted to add a comment that will show up in the Pulse or be sent as a private email to the page owner.  Since we launched this feature we’ve seen an overwhelming number of people write messages to their friends and fundraisers (over 60%!).  Looks like everyone was just waiting for us to launch this!

New Dashboard Welcome Screen! Charts Charts Charts!
We’ve begun a major transformation on the welcome page of our dashboard!  Yes, we finally have charts!  Now every fundraiser can see a visual representation of how their campaign is doing.  There are 3 tabs to the chart:
  • $ Raised ,
  • Supporters, and
  • Pageviews!

Each chart is interactive allowing you to see when you sent an email, or posted to Facebook and how many new supporters and donors you got as a result!  Happy Analyzing!

Supporters Tab
We’ve got a new tab for fundraisers to help them track their overall progress. It includes the ability to view Supporters, Fundraisers and Team that have joined your cause!  Each tab will show overall fundraising amounts per team or fundraiser, so you can instantly see who  your top fundraisers are and which fundraisers have a ton of potential, but just need a little encouragement!
Supporter, Fundraiser and Team data is available for download with certain pricing plans.

The Latest Fundly Product Enhancements

28 Feb

Hi I’m Dennis, VP of Products here at Fundly. I’m really excited to be writing this new blog post today as we’ve been heads down working on a number of new things that will help all of our fundraisers be more successful in their fundraising! We’ve spoken to a fair number of our fundraisers over the last couple of months and have been making some huge strides in usability and performance!

Below you’ll find a list of the new features as well as a quick excerpt about each of them!
Streamlined Dashboard 
We pushed out a major update to our fundraiser management pages and switched to a tabbed structure underneath the context of campaigns.  This should lessen any confusion that people have running multiple campaigns at the same time and navigating between them.  By providing the campaign name at the top of the page at all times, our fundraisers should always know which campaign they are managing.  Users now have 4 tabs when they are logged in, “Welcome”, “Email”, “Embed”, “Funds”.

Ability to “Delete” Campaigns

One of the most common requests that we get and have seen in the past are that people want to “Delete” campaigns from their drop downs.  Either these campaigns were created by accident or just no longer needed, we have now given users the ability to “Delete” campaigns.  One thing to note, campaigns can only be deleted if they haven’t raised money.   Users should be able to see an “X” icon on campaigns that can be deleted and then prompted to ensure that is the campaign they would like to delete

Email a Friend

We now have the ability to send out emails to your friends from campaign pages. We know, frequently, people are eager to share campaigns with their friends and that should be encouraged! So now, beyond just being able to post to Facebook, Twitter, etc., there is also email!

More Notification Management 

We know that users want to be able to control what emails they and their supporters see.  We’ve updated our settings area to give all of our users granular control over what notifications they generate and receive

Streamlined Brand Pack Setup

Attention all Partners, SoHo and Enterprise clients! Great news! It will now be even easier and faster for us to build custom branded pages. We also have more control over the features we can provide to our partners.

*Coming Soon*

Don’t look now! But we’re at it again and as I mentioned above, we’re always looking to see how we can continue to improve the product!  We’ve been working on an updated design that we know everyone will like! We’ve highlighted photos and videos and given stronger prominence to personal fundraisers who are raising money for campaign pages!
As always, I’d love to hear your feedback and comments as you use our system!  If you don’t know, I read EVERY email I get (dennis@fundly.com), so let me know your thoughts!
