Welcome to the HubCap

The HubCap is a the monthly blog series that highlights the best of the Power of Us Hub!

Each month we’ll feature product updates, a round-up of past and upcoming community events, community-contributed resources and Hub Happenings from the previous month.

A lot happened in May — Dreamforce 2018 Registration, GDPR, new NPSP Customizable Rollups, our first community-led webinar hosted in Spanish! — and we want to make sure you’re not missing anything!

If you’re wondering what happened in May, the answer is… a lot! Check it out.

Product Updates

Hint: NPSP = Nonprofit Success Pack, HEDA = Higher Ed Data Architecture and SAL = Salesforce Advisor Link

Important Update about the recent NPSP Release

If you are a user using Lightning Experience AND the Classic Nonprofit Success Pack app, you may have noticed that when you switch to Lightning, you can no longer see the NPSP App in the Lightning App menu. Don’t worry, just the App has disappeared. This change does not impact your data, and all your objects are still accessible via the All Items list.

We have a planned fix for this issue and the NPSP App should “reappear” in the next NPSP release. Unfortunately, however, we aren’t releasing a new version of NPSP until the end of June because of the Summer ’18 release. In the meantime, you can create your own Lightning App following our simple instructions or access your objects through the All Items list at the bottom of the App Launcher. If you have additional questions, please post in the Nonprofit Success Pack group in the Hub.

Speaking of the recent NPSP release: Customizable Rollups are here! Rolling up donor data is an essential part of fundraising with the Nonprofit Success Pack. And since every nonprofit is unique, it is especially important that you’re able to roll up exactly the data you need, and to the right records. With Customizable Rollups, you can create as many custom rollups as you need and define their process, filters, and where they roll up to…. check out all the details.
