Tax ticket information
Denote what portion(s) of ticket sales are tax-deductible BEFORE the data is entered into Bloomerang.
Map Checks as Pledges rather than Donations
Map checks pledged through Givebutter as pledges in Bloomerang, rather than donations already received.
Filter and notifications for un-synced transactions
I understand that GB will show if the donation hasn't been synced, but currently, I can't filter to only see the donations that haven't synced with Bloomerang. I was wondering if there was a way to possibly export it so I could easily see just those donations without having to scroll through all of our donations to cherry-pick which ones didn't sync. At the very least, is there a way to be notified when a donation runs into a sync error? That way I could search for the specific name for details.
Map custom fields
The ability to map custom fields from Givebutter to Bloomerang is a planned addition to our Bloomerang integration, pending the official launch of Bloomerang API v2.
The ability to map split-payments to differentiate between earned revenue, donations, and applicable fees. Currently, the total transaction including donation/ticket amount and any applicable fees covered by the donor is mapped to Bloomerang via the native integration.
Map / enable multi-fund syncing
The ability to map Fund Designations from Givebutter transaction to Bloomerang. The currently option allows for 1-1 Givebutter campaign to Bloomerang fund.
Calculate deductibility from Tickets vs Donations
Since donations are tax deductable and tickets aren't (or could be marked as such), it would save us a lot of work in bloomerang if the deductable amount was automatically calculated.
Auto Transfer "non-deductible" amounts for items
Enter "non-deductible" amounts for item sales that are also fundraisers. Specific example: T-shirt sales; for each item sold, Bloomerang treats the sale as a donation for the full amount paid in Givebutter. Currently, I have to go into each transaction and manually enter the non-deductible amount so that actual donation amounts are included in EOY tax receipt info.
Bloomerang Integration Update
We have a Givebutter paid subscription through our Bloomerang contract. We are very pleased overall, but a few aspects of the GB>BR integration are causing extra work on our end. 1) Sometimes we have local businesses or organizations donate, but there is no way to identify these as such through the integration. Since Bloomerang categorizes each constituent as either an individual or organization, this means all constituents that are being migrated over from GB are done so as an individual and we have to manually catch that and change the type over to organization 2) there is something amiss with the way GB sends over the name information IF someone uses a middle initial. E.g. if I entered my name as Mary M Woody while donating through GB, with M being my middle initial, it is landing in Bloomerang as my first name = "Mary M". The issue here is that because Mary is different from Mary M, the BR system doesn't recognize it as a match and is creating a new donor each time 3) the GB transaction ID number is not listed anywhere in the transaction/donation information (e.g. donation Notes section). We have a Finance team here and they need those to match up in a report for their reconciliation. It does appear in the Email interaction Notes, but that doesn't help us when trying to run reports on the transaction. There isn't a way to add that email Interaction into a Transaction report, since they aren't linked in BR in any way, 4) Lastly, it would be wonderful if there were a way to create our own Custom Fields including Transaction based fields and Constituent based fields AND to then match them into BR. Thank you for all that you do - we are very happy with GB and the integration with BR overall.
