Understanding and analyzing your data and results is essential to growing your non profit organization using Causeview and Salesforce.com. Causeview ships with over 57 pre-defined reports that you can use, which can be found under Other Reports, or, you can build your own to see the data you want to see, the way you want to see it. The Reporting function in Salesforce allows you to:
Run Reports: both standard and customized
Customize Standard and Personal Reports
Create New Reports from Scratch
Export Reports Results to Excel
Causeview’s custom reports focus around transactions and allocations, and allow you to build custom reports off the relationships between these objects in Salesforce the relationships they have with other objects (Organizations, Individuals, etc.) in Salesforce allowing you to build extremely complicated reports with ease. Reports that would take hours to build are now able to be built in as little as five minutes. We’ll learn how to build custom reports in the Build Custom Reports section.
Through the use of reporting, your non profit organization will be able to make informed decisions and gather insights about fundraising targets, objectives, and strategies. The result: better information for your directors and growth for your non profit organization.
