You can now integrate Raiser's Edge NXT CRM to your Event.Gives event to link your attendees to previous or new constituent records. You have access to creating/syncing constituents, storing notes on constituents, and pushing over gifts to constituent records in the form of an appeal, fund, or campaign. In return, RENXT will display that constituent's lifetime giving, wealth rating, donor type. Once synced, you can push event transactions as gifts to your RENXT constituent database.
1. Access the Event Settings tab within your Manager Portal.
2. Locate your Event.Gives Application ID by selecting the 'Raiser's Edge NXT' icon within the Connect to Blackbaud section of your Event Settings Tab.
3. Locate and select 'Marketplace' within the hamburger menu on the left side of your RE NXT account.
5. Connect by copying your Application ID found in Step 2.
6. Once you authorize your account, and hold your event, you can then go to your 'Attendees' tab within your Manager Portal.
7. Once in the Attendees tab, select the blue 'Load All Attendees', then drop down the grey 'Bulk Actions' menu.
8. From the drop-down menu, first select 'Select/Deselect All Users' and then 'Link Constituents'.
From here, Sync Actions will appear for you to sync your attendee turnout as well as push any transactions over as gifts on your attendee's constituent record. In addition to linking your constituents and pushing the transactions over as gifts, you also have the ability to create new constituents. This integration also has the ability to detect duplicate constituents and will ask for confirmation of who you would like to sync the record to.
