500 to 2,000 and $70 to $130 per month is asking way to much for many non-profits. This jump in Plans almost doubles a non-profit's budget for WA from $840/year to $1,560 per year.
Ideally, with lots of paying Members this could be priced into the Membership levels. However, in the case of the clients I'm working with this is difficult with either few Members & many Contacts, or by-laws that restrict their dues.
In either case, the jump to 2,000 is not feasible and thus this is restricting our ability to expand the usage of WA. Kind of defeats the purpose doesn't it???
Yes, importing events makes sense for this WA Consultant. Thanks!
In one of the non-profits I support, there is a need to setup different Events with different Paypal accounts. Thus, a June Event might go to Paypal Account #1. A July Event might go to Paypal Account #2. Etc, Etc. Thus, what I would like to see is the ability within a specific event to select a Paypal account for the event.
As a new account on WA, we're now moving forward with invoices, events, etc.
I support the idea of having multiple invoice templates or selection capabilities.
For our events - we have three payment methods:
2) @ The Door
3) Mail in a Check
Thus, IMHO having the registrant choose their payment method and then have the associated invoice type generated/sent would be really helpful.
After initial analysis we decided to remove this feature from 2017 plans. Right now we don’t have clear understanding when this feature will be taken into development.
There are several key areas this would/could be used for:
1) Event Reminders
2) Documentation due dates
3) Special discounts
Bottom-line: Folks react to SMS-blast in 5 minutes - email could take days.
Lets face facts - folks are not taking calls, not reading emails, and staying out of pocket until they must act on the above. This is simply a trend that has come about because we are to busy.
What is getting through? Simple - shot - text - messages or SMS:
Short Message Service (SMS) is a text messaging service component of phone, Web, or mobile communication systems. It uses standardized communications protocols http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communications_protocols to allow fixed line http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fixed_line or mobile phone devices to exchange short text messages
Note: Based on reports - folks will read a SMS message within 5 minutes of receiving same.
Given this trend and the need for us to be able to reach members quickly, I would like to see this feature added to our WA tool chest.
