Many nonprofits hold fundraising events as a way of generating awareness deepening constituent engagement and, of course, raising money. Events take a lot of planning, hard work and coordination and generally put stress on an organization. Luckily, there are a host of event management tools that can help promote events, process ticket sales, track event registrations and check in guests.

My parents liked to work with their hands – I learned to sew from my mother, and basic carpentry from my father. In both cases, the old adage of “measure twice, cut once” applied to what I was learning, and I often return to this principle when working with Salesforce. I’ve previously written about how organizations can support implementations for the long haul and considerations for best practice, but this blog is intended to be a reflection on how organizations can better “measure twice” during a Salesforce implementation and extend its functionality. Because in Salesforce, it’s easy to “cut once,” but cutting twice or more can sometimes mean substantial amounts of time and effort revising data, data architecture, and programming within the platform.

One of the biggest obstacles to using Work.com to effectively manage goals was that it wasn’t integrated with Salesforce.com, so there was no automated way to record progress - instead, someone had to manually go in and update progress against goals. Although not insurmountable, anything that requires manual entry should (in my opinion) be avoided like the plague! In the last year Salesforce.com has worked to address this shortcoming and added several important enhancements that make it worth taking another look at.

Roll out is often considered the end of a software or systems project, but the end of every Salesforce project is really just the beginning. Investing in knowledge, data quality and user engagement can help an organization achieve success with Salesforce.
