My license was approved, and I downloaded the software through the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center, but when I try to activate the software, I receive this error message: "There is a problem with your account. Try again later". The account credentials seem to work otherwise (I can login into the website).  The Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center Customer Service could not help, and directed me to the paying Microsoft Tech Support. If anybody has an idea of what I could do to activate my software, that would be great.  Thank you!

What are your needs, budget, and staff capabilities? Some questions to consider: What kinds of constituents and data do you need to track? What kinds of reports or analytics do you need? What other systems does the donor management software need to integrate with? What should it be able to automate for you? Have you standardized on a particular technology platform? Are you looking for an off-the-shelf solution or are you prepared to roll your own or pay for a custom/customized solution? What’s your budget for the software and services in year 1 and subsequent years? Can you afford to pay the vendor or a consultant for implementation help? I recommend starting by reading Idealware’s Consumers Guide to Low-Cost Donor Management Systems and then focusing on the chapter called “What Do These Systems Do?” Make a list of your needs, decide which are deal-breakers, and prioritize the rest. Then you can focus on systems that can meet your mandatory and top needs, and ask vendors to show you how their systems would address those needs. (Caveat: some of the inexpensive vendors will not tailor their demos — you will have to judge based on their canned demos or be prepared to do your own testing.) Also, while conducting reference checks with other nonprofits is important, just because another nonprofit loves or hates a system doesn’t mean it will perform that way for you. Their functional and technical needs, budget, and technical capacity may be quite different from yours. It’s best to try to find comparable organizations (e.g., similar budget, fundraising methods, staff size, gift volume, and tech staffing).

In my opinion, business requirements are to software selections as foundations are to a home. If they aren’t right, there will be major problems in finding the “best CRM software” for your organization. You mention a few things that are important but frankly may need a little more to go on to discern options worthy of your review. You are unique so finding the one that closely matches your strategy will be too! What other functional and feature requirements are important to you all?  Forum Post: Cybersecurity Insurance, 17 Oct 2018 20:01:00 GMTcaa7681b-025a-49ce-809f-7435bfe4d232:cc99eb17-e0da-46b9-b2dd-876aae793c0bAlanAgle Asking for a community foundation.

I want to have tasks defined for each event and each process (ie.

" You've gotten some good suggestions here. But a software program, however great, may still fail, if your volunteers and staff won't use it. Whatever you choose, you need to have more than one training, you need to reward people for using it (just a recognition of it at a meeting can be great), you need to drive people to it ("I need to take this conversation from email to our online platform, please..."), etc.  YahooGroups might be a way to have ongoing text-based, threaded conversations and to share files (it's free). Google calendar can be a good way to share appointments (it's free). WebEx could be a good tool for live, online audio and video meetings, but anything that happens in the chat window (the text-based conversations that can be allowed during the conferencing) would need to be saved and shared, either as a message on your YahooGroup, a file shared on your YahooGroup, or a file shared on a GoogleDoc.
