While many of us are still feeling the chill of winter, Salesforce's Spring '24 release is in full bloom! Let's review some of the Nonprofit Cloud highlights from this release that will lead to brighter days ahead for your organization.
You now have the ability to quickly and easily integrate 3rd-party applications with Fundraising using Business Process API. This new feature allows for matching and creating donor records, donations, and installments, storing external payment data, linking campaigns, source codes, and designations, adding data to custom fields, and submitting donation data in a single payload.
Split Gift Transaction Amount Attribution
Users can now split the attribution of revenue on gifts between multiple upgraded campaigns, making it easier than ever to measure campaign ROI. Salesforce will attribute a transaction based on the ratio in which each campaign influenced the transaction amount.
Outreach Source Code URLs
Save time by automatically generating unique, shareable URLs based on UTM parameters set by the user. These URLs can be used to attribute an online donation to the outreach source code, allowing digital fundraisers to easily measure the effectiveness of online outreach.
Track Payment Data
Salesforce has implemented improved methods to track payment data like payment method, transaction fees, and metadata. This update allows users to streamline processes like donor support requests, monitor processing fees, resolve accounting errors, and manage integrations.
Program and Case Management for Experience Cloud
The Program and Case Management for Experience Cloud permission set has been updated to include create, read, update, and delete permissions. You can change these permissions in your org by going to the Program and Case Management for Experience Cloud permission set, adding the Program and Case Management for Experience Cloud permission set to a permission group that includes your own permission sets, and assigning the permission set group to your users.
Find/Fix Duplicates in Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP)
Users with NPSP can now find and merge potential duplicate contacts on the NPSP Contact Merge page. This feature replaces the Potential Duplicates component on the Contact page.
Security Enhancements for Volunteers for Salesforce
Salesforce has released updates to Volunteers for Salesforce to enhance security.
Spring is on its way, and so is increased functionality and efficiency to your Salesforce org! If you’d like more information on these Nonprofit Cloud updates or if you want to view past updates, please visit the official Salesforce Spring '24 release notes.
