Quick Pledge Back Office Form

Oct 14, 2010

A reminder that Quick Pledge includes a secure Back Office Form that you, your volunteers and call centers can use to enter phone pledges. Use this feature to streamline your data entry process and reduce penmanship issues!

The Back Office Form is based on your default Quick Pledge form, but the fields are ordered differently.

With Quick Pledge, one or more staffers can receive a pledge notification email when a new pledge comes in!

The notification email includes the full donation details, with the exception of credit card information. These email notifications are different from your encrypted pledge file emails. Notifications are great for non-drive times when you may not check for online pledges regularly. You can set different addresses for each form.

To Set or Edit Your Pledge Notification Email Addresses:
