Mass Emailing with Salesforce @ 501Partners

Automation is the key to getting the most work done with a small staff, and Salesforce includes automation tools that let your staff work at maximum efficiency, with the added advantage of taking many repetitive tasks off their plate. In this Bootcamp PLUS, we will explore using Salesforce to create automated emails that assign tasks, respond to requests, and pass information to the right staff person. Even better: your automated emails can be formatted and customized to respond to constituents as well! Finally, we’ll walk through integrating Salesforce with a third-party mass mailing tool to provide better control over your mailing lists. You’ll have hours back in your week after this workshop!

Leave with the confidence and knowledge to:

  • Create an Email Template
  • Automatically assign tasks, respond to requests, and forward information to the right staff person
  • Create a workflow (automation) to acknowledge a gift
  • Create a workflow to inform a gift has been made
  • Download and install the free connector for a mass emailing tool

All of our workshops are taught by our Director of Training, Paul Baxter.

Bootcamp Plus: DIY Salesforce Data Migration

Data migration simply means transferring a large amount of data from one place to another in a single operation. At some point, nearly every organization will need to migrate data. If you have an existing database, you already have a substantial amount of development and program information. Entering all that information manually would take far too much time, so data migration is the solution. But data migration is useful in other scenarios as well, such as when you have a large event and collect a substantial number of new donors or program participants.

Successful data migration requires preparing the data in a format the Salesforce can accept. We will cover many time-saving techniques to make this process easier. We will also learn how to make migration easier by matching your data to Salesforce’s internal structure. Finally, we will use and compare three different free data migration tools.

Leave with the confidence and knowledge to:

  • Preparare data in Excel
  • Understand the differences between various data migration tools: Data Loader, Dataloader.io, Data Wizard
  • Execute simple migration: Contacts and Accounts
  • Execute Intermediate Migration, such as:
    • Migrating Donations and attaching the data to Accounts
    • Migrating Cases and attaching the data to Contacts
    • Adding Contacts to Campaigns through Migration
  • Execute Advanced Migration, such as using External ID’s to attach Donations to Accounts
  • Insert, Update and Delete with a data migration tool.

This morning workshop is offered in conjunction with the morning workshop, Mass Emailing with Salesforce. Register for one or both sessions.
