While Cvent has a feature to "allow partial payments," we never want to enable it. Collecting credit card information to process part of the payment now and the other portion at a later time doesn't align with CU's approach to protecting cardholders and it should not be enabled under any circumstances. The good news is, by default, this setting is disabled across all events and most users remain unaware of this functionality. Follow these instructions to confirm your paid event doesn't have this feature enabled.
With eComm, a Cvent event can be configured to collect money for an event that will later be deposited to your speed type. Users who host paid events must complete the Payment Card Industry (PCI) SkillSoft course annually and have an understanding of financial processes.
The Free Map Tool has a ZIP Code Radius Search Map which allows you to determine what Zip Codes fall into a set range from a set point (ie. 10 mile radius of 80203). These Zip Codes can then be used in a Salesforce Report to capture an audience based on where individuals live. This is often useful when hosting an in-person event and determining who to invite.
GeoCode, a field in Salesforce available on a Contact's record, currently comes from the Advance database. Advance will be getting rid of this field during the migration to Ascend, so it will no longer be available in eComm's instance of Salesforce. In preparation for this change, Salesforce Reports currently using this field need to be recreated with an alternative method or deleted by April 25, 2023.
Effective email marketing is data-driven and should not be viewed as set it and forget it. As an email marketer, looking at reliable metrics when analyzing your email marketing performance is essential. Using your own data as a benchmark is the best practice for determining if you are meeting your goals or need to optimize to improve performance.
CU Anschutz development sends periodic email communications to grateful patients as a component of their ongoing fundraising efforts. This document summarizes how these contacts are identified and shared in CRM03, how they are processed against existing data, and how their contact records are managed following the email send. Additionally, it documents questions we may want to consider as we develop a path forward for ensuring proper handling of confidential information.
