01:25:20    Matt Cromwell:    Hi Pernilla, GiveWP is 100% internationalized. That means it's "translation ready". In WordPress, volunteers all over the world donate their time to translate plugins like GiveWP. I don't know the state of the Swedish translation at the moment. But we have docs to show how you can use PoEdit (for example) to create a local translation of everything in GiveWP
01:25:52    Mary Job:    PMPro can be translated to other languages, please see: https://www.paidmembershipspro.com/paid-memberships-pro-in-your-language/
01:26:29    Mary Job:    Hi Pernilla, Paid Memberships Pro displays in U.S. English (en_US) by default, but our plugin has the capability to be used in any language.

01:49:01    Eli van der Giessen:    LATAM question from Pedro: “I am looking for crowdfunding platforms in North America that work with NGOs in Latin America. Aside from https://www.globalgiving.org/, do you know of any other option ?”
01:49:37    Jai Djwa:    Uh quick q- you mentioned integrating G-suite with MS? Can you say more? That is a huge pain point for me.
01:50:14    Jai Djwa:    @Robert that was a q for you
01:50:18    Matt Cromwell:    Pedro: I'd suggest looking into GiveWP. We have a lot of users in Latin America. We have progress bars, donor wall, form grids and more.

01:59:07    Eileen Cease:    Trello is fantastic for organizing work for teams.  It's also a great way to handle a personal To Do list.

02:02:58    Sandra Eamor:    I'm a fan of Getting Things Done as well.. Trello is a great starter tool for that methodology. Also a good alternative for anyone who was a previous Wunderlist user since they ended that service.

00:40:07.590 --> 00:40:10.740
Bruce Nean: Hello everybody. Can you hear me, are all good.

00:40:12.000 --> 00:40:22.200
Bruce Nean: Excellent. Yes, my name is Bruce name. I am from Brisbane, Australia, I've got a jar of Vegemite. The most Ozzy thing I could find.

00:40:23.880 --> 00:40:34.560
Bruce Nean: Yet so it's midnight here. So I think you can all see my screen that all good. So today what I want to share with you.

00:40:35.130 --> 00:40:49.080
Bruce Nean: Is around a little visual tool that you can use if you're wanting to try and illustrate your user experience or your donor experience or your

00:40:49.770 --> 00:41:02.070
Bruce Nean: Nonprofit beneficiary experience. I won't go into the full details of why you might use this in developing a customer journey map but yesterday I did.

00:41:02.940 --> 00:41:13.380
Bruce Nean: Our own next squared here in Brisbane around creating customer journey map. And if you would like to get that information.

00:41:14.250 --> 00:41:28.140
Bruce Nean: I'm going to do a shameless plug that to go to our website digital for good.com.edu and you can get the full presentation there which Eli recorded for us, but basically visual

00:41:29.040 --> 00:41:45.900
Bruce Nean: Visual visualization is actually worth 80 IQ points it taps into energy intelligence and creativity. So when you're working on user experience or trying to improve your customer.

00:41:46.020 --> 00:41:49.830
Bruce Nean: Experience. It's good to get visual and create

00:41:51.150 --> 00:41:59.550
Bruce Nean: Some visit visual ization around that. So today's quick tool is provided by

00:42:00.840 --> 00:42:14.520
Bruce Nean: The UX comic pattern library. Now if you just Google that you will find that will probably come up as the top results. It's just got a very strange URL. So I want to try and

00:42:15.330 --> 00:42:23.820
Bruce Nean: spell that one out for you. But what it basically is is it's a freebie costs nothing. And you can either download a

00:42:24.510 --> 00:42:46.230
Bruce Nean: PowerPoint slide or a keynote slide for those of us that use Macs and what it gives you is a number of slides, you'll see here on the left I gives you a whole lot of tools little people to create and some backdrops and basically in about two minutes. I made this

00:42:47.490 --> 00:42:56.280
Bruce Nean: Comic version of Eli here excited behind his computer screen, saying that he loves Net Squared.

00:42:57.630 --> 00:43:07.470
Bruce Nean: And if he's waving right now, if I were to messaged him and say, I wasn't able to make it, he probably would look a little bit like this.

00:43:09.030 --> 00:43:21.210
Bruce Nean: And you can swap out pieces you know he's just got a text message for me saying that I can't make it, things like that. So it's really easy to play with.

00:43:22.500 --> 00:43:29.100
Bruce Nean: And you can scroll through it has a little backdrops and settings.

00:43:31.800 --> 00:43:41.430
Bruce Nean: Low lots and lots of fun. It even has Gameboy which is really cool. So if you're trying to want to create some really quick illustrations

00:43:42.240 --> 00:43:56.370
Bruce Nean: That's a really good way to do it. I think I even created myself here. So as soon as this is over on will be off to bed, and that's what my bed might look like.

00:43:57.630 --> 00:44:06.660
Bruce Nean: So that one. If you Google that that you'll find it. And if I've got some time left, Eli. Another one that is excellent, very similar.

00:44:08.130 --> 00:44:17.460
Bruce Nean: Is called pixton pixton.com and you can create a whole lot of characters and you can move them around.

00:44:18.870 --> 00:44:33.390
Bruce Nean: So you can actually move people's like features around and things, which is really fun. If you're wanting to create a comic to explain a scenario or situation as that time am I good

00:44:33.780 --> 00:44:35.700
Eli van der Giessen: You've got one minute years. Lovely.

00:44:36.420 --> 00:44:38.430
Bruce Nean: Any questions now, we probably don't have time.

00:44:41.010 --> 00:44:44.400
Bruce Nean: So that one's pixton calm and I didn't mention sorry that one.

00:44:45.630 --> 00:45:03.810
Bruce Nean: I think on a student plan. It looks like it starts at $10 us a month, but that one's really fun. But if you can't afford it and just want to have a play with a PowerPoint. Just google UX comment patent library and have a whole lot of fun with that.

00:45:04.890 --> 00:45:06.780
Bruce Nean: And you can, yeah.

00:45:07.920 --> 00:45:19.980
Bruce Nean: Love to see what you come up with. But yeah, if you want to listen to my presentation on customer journey mapping, you'll see how that might fit in. Just get a digital digital for good calm but I thank you.

00:45:20.400 --> 00:45:22.140
Eli van der Giessen: Lovely, thank you so much.

00:45:23.520 --> 00:45:29.280
Eli van der Giessen: Perfect. So that we're going to, you know, turn off the screen share and we're going to switch over to the next one.

00:45:30.780 --> 00:45:35.280
Eli van der Giessen: So our next presenter is Kelly Morris who comes to us from Calgary Canada.

00:45:38.640 --> 00:45:41.070
Eli van der Giessen: Kelly is still unmute but that's going to end in just a moment.

00:45:41.820 --> 00:45:45.360
Kelly Morris: Good morning, everybody. How are you, everybody hear me okay

00:45:47.400 --> 00:45:47.730
Eli van der Giessen: Good.

00:45:47.940 --> 00:45:48.450
Kelly Morris: Where is it

00:45:56.190 --> 00:45:57.750
Kelly Morris: So I feel like I lost my

00:46:00.150 --> 00:46:00.600
Kelly Morris: Is

00:46:06.720 --> 00:46:07.290
Eli van der Giessen: Your good

00:46:07.800 --> 00:46:15.600
Kelly Morris: Awesome. Thanks, everyone. Welcome to everybody. And my name is Kelly and I, like I said, I'm the co coordinator

00:46:16.290 --> 00:46:32.820
Kelly Morris: Here in Calgary, Alberta. We're really just getting started and codes kind of put a little bit of a hamper on our group, but we're we're kicking on. I also run an online consulting company called Kellyanne online. I'm hoping to help leaders really understand

00:46:36.540 --> 00:46:45.240
Kelly Morris: Digital can lead their younger teams better and engage more donors and hopefully raise more money over time. One of my favorite

00:46:47.070 --> 00:46:56.550
Kelly Morris: New software systems is that I've been using probably for about a year now, but it's become my, my, one of my favorite tools and it's Grammarly

00:46:58.350 --> 00:47:05.340
Kelly Morris: And it really is one of the best pieces of software that anyone can use for their business becomes your

00:47:06.570 --> 00:47:10.140
Kelly Morris: You know, especially if you're working on your own or working from home.

00:47:13.020 --> 00:47:13.950
Kelly Morris: For example,

00:47:17.580 --> 00:47:20.850
Kelly Morris: It's actually a little bit of a demo here.

00:47:24.750 --> 00:47:30.720
Kelly Morris: Hopefully it'll come up and show showcase how it works. But everything is covered here. Hang on.

00:47:32.730 --> 00:47:34.320
Kelly Morris: So you can see through

00:47:35.400 --> 00:47:36.570
Kelly Morris: On the screen.

00:47:38.220 --> 00:47:48.030
Kelly Morris: And just how it says correctness clarity engagement delivery it saying that it's not working very well this morning. I don't know why it's just because I'm showcasing it right

00:47:51.150 --> 00:47:53.280
Eli van der Giessen: Mo has ever been without bugs. Keep going.

00:47:54.840 --> 00:47:55.170
Kelly Morris: I'll give

00:47:58.350 --> 00:47:58.650
Kelly Morris: And

00:48:00.540 --> 00:48:07.950
Kelly Morris: Look at references spelling conventions fluency works in many, many different languages. There's all my alerts so

00:48:08.580 --> 00:48:17.250
Kelly Morris: Here, it talks about an amazing addition to any browser just talks about how you might choose a different word based on the fact that, you know, they think that that words used a lot

00:48:18.510 --> 00:48:28.830
Kelly Morris: And here's another one that's asking for, you know me to remove the phrase, and if I just click on it, it'll go away like I can just click that and it's gone.

00:48:32.070 --> 00:48:32.910
Kelly Morris: Anyway, it took

00:48:33.960 --> 00:48:36.180
Kelly Morris: You know, it takes really, it's a really quick.

00:48:41.040 --> 00:48:57.090
Kelly Morris: software system. It's a subscription service that is available. I could not find the pricing. Unfortunately for taxi, but I think he live, we could figure that out and it works really well in all your social media WordPress and it can become a little Chrome extension.

00:48:59.100 --> 00:49:06.930
Kelly Morris: It'll save you a stack of time anyone that's kind of getting their writing up to par or feeling that you want to have a little bit more

00:49:07.980 --> 00:49:17.010
Kelly Morris: Juice in your writing. It's a really great to great service. So if anybody has any questions, feel free to just pop it in

00:49:20.730 --> 00:49:33.600
Kelly Morris: The chat. Be happy to answer, while we're doing this anyway here's just some more clarity, things like that. Anyway, it's a quick one, but one that I love and it's helped me a lot, improve my writing skills. So there you go.

00:49:35.040 --> 00:49:48.480
Eli van der Giessen: Lovely. Yeah. And if anyone calls to do some quick Google's on the Grammarly nonprofit discount program. I think that's open during hope it right now. Please drop that into the chat window perfect four minutes. You have done it in record time.

00:49:49.530 --> 00:49:57.330
Eli van der Giessen: Which means now I have to see if I can do it. So let me take over screen share and dive in. Because it's my turn for the demo.

00:50:01.260 --> 00:50:09.360
Eli van der Giessen: So hi, their friends. I'm Eli here in Vancouver and I work with texting. So the demo, I want to do today.

00:50:09.840 --> 00:50:28.500
Eli van der Giessen: Is have a tool called D script. And what it does is it gives you the ability to edit audio and video like you would edit text. So that's sort of the core of what the tool does. And when I first discovered it, you know, from actually another organizer demoing it for me.

00:50:29.670 --> 00:50:37.260
Eli van der Giessen: It kind of blew my mind. So let me actually show you the tool. So, what it is is it's at its heart a video editor.

00:50:38.730 --> 00:50:46.050
Eli van der Giessen: But it does a couple other things there because it takes away the awful parts of editing video. So when you're editing video

00:50:46.770 --> 00:50:58.800
Eli van der Giessen: You know, you don't really know what's in it. So what they do with the script is it does automatic machine transcription of your video which you're like, Okay, that's not that fancy lots of people do that.

00:50:59.280 --> 00:51:07.080
Eli van der Giessen: But what it does is it ties that script directly to your video. So when you edit the audio. The the

00:51:07.680 --> 00:51:15.720
Eli van der Giessen: The actual text. It also edit the video down below and that does some pretty radical thing. So one of the things that can do for you.

00:51:16.050 --> 00:51:23.880
Eli van der Giessen: Is say you got a big long one hour video will you get your transcription. It'll then say, like, here's the people speaking

00:51:24.570 --> 00:51:34.500
Eli van der Giessen: And then from there you can either use this tool to create your transcript or your subtitle file and by just going through and cleaning up the text as you go through

00:51:35.190 --> 00:51:43.110
Eli van der Giessen: But you can also use it as a video or audio editor. I'm sorry. Let me give you a quick example. Here's a video I created last night.

00:51:57.390 --> 00:52:06.870
Eli van der Giessen: So what you'll see there is a along this script section. There's this little blue cursor that pops through showing you where you're at.

00:52:07.260 --> 00:52:14.400
Eli van der Giessen: And you'll see it made a couple mistakes which happens you'll see transcription says like the strawberries are kind of bad

00:52:14.820 --> 00:52:24.120
Eli van der Giessen: Which of course is nonsense because what I actually said was read. So I'm just going to go there and clean up my transcripts. Awesome, that's great. But the other opportunity.

00:52:24.750 --> 00:52:36.180
Eli van der Giessen: Is to start cleaning up your actual video. So if I go into the edit media mode, you'll see here that I've got like a couple I'm she'll say, like, right here, I've got this line right here.

00:52:43.230 --> 00:52:58.980
Eli van der Giessen: So I don't want that. Ah, I'm like, I want to make everyone sound but think that I'm a really clear direct speaker, even if that's not the case. I'm just going to go through deliver that delete that are in the script. And now when I go through and play it. Check this out.

00:53:05.700 --> 00:53:08.220
Eli van der Giessen: Let's just go back a little bit more. So as time to catch up.

00:53:19.650 --> 00:53:31.710
Eli van der Giessen: So that's just a really short demo. There's a couple of other things you can do it. So sometimes when you're putting together your recording, you see that, like, Oh, there's the big gaps and you're like, Well, I don't really want that.

00:53:32.790 --> 00:53:49.590
Eli van der Giessen: And so, you know, in a typical editor, you have to go through and you highlight a section and you edit it, but what I can do is just take this gap right here and say, like, well, actually I want that to be much shorter. So I'm just going to grab a section, you know, so you're right here.

00:53:54.600 --> 00:54:04.470
Eli van der Giessen: And say, well, what if they had this to be see there's like that high of Eli gap gap gap. What if I just shorten it up. So I say hi and Eli gap is drag this section ahead of it.

00:54:05.310 --> 00:54:12.600
Eli van der Giessen: Bring it along. And now it's shorter. So I've just like remove some of the gaps to just tighten up this recording as well.

00:54:13.620 --> 00:54:15.390
Eli van der Giessen: So now it's going to go a little bit like this.

00:54:24.420 --> 00:54:29.040
Eli van der Giessen: So now you'll see I've got this much shorter gap. So, that is, I think some of the magic, you can do here.

00:54:30.450 --> 00:54:36.810
Eli van der Giessen: What do I need to tell you if you're a professional who actually needs using professional tools like, you know, Adobe Premiere or something like that.

00:54:36.990 --> 00:54:45.330
Eli van der Giessen: You can export the full editable source file. So none of these edits are destructive so you can then take it into a more professional tool and do a deeper edit.

00:54:45.780 --> 00:54:56.700
Eli van der Giessen: And then the other thing you should know is the basic tool is free, but there is a $10 a month subscription, which will get you

00:54:58.170 --> 00:55:02.490
Eli van der Giessen: Basically infinite amounts of transcription time which is level pricing model. They've got

00:55:02.910 --> 00:55:18.600
Eli van der Giessen: As a nonprofit, you can apply on their page for 50% discount so that's $5 a month. It gives you four hours of transcription time but in most cases for a light user like myself. That's more than enough so that is the script com

00:55:26.070 --> 00:55:29.670
Eli van der Giessen: Perfect. So next in Irvine order is beer. Good.

00:55:31.080 --> 00:55:40.710
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Well, hi, everybody. Thanks for joining us today. My name is pure get pani honk and since 2013 I've been a tech for good co organizer in Naples Florida.

00:55:41.250 --> 00:55:53.880
Birgit Pauli-Haack: And I'm also the owner and web developer at Poly systems and we work with nonprofits. So today I show you how to create your Google map using data from a Google Sheet.

00:55:54.780 --> 00:56:01.980
Birgit Pauli-Haack: And embedded into your website so nonprofits can use this method by to visualize geographical data.

00:56:02.880 --> 00:56:18.450
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Like foundations might create a map of organizations they support in the nation or food banks might need a map for the distribution centers and I'm sharing my screen now to show you that example.

00:56:19.560 --> 00:56:21.570
Birgit Pauli-Haack: So I have here a list of

00:56:22.650 --> 00:56:34.410
Birgit Pauli-Haack: The Harry chip in food bank is the local food bank distribution and they buy and so they have a list of all the food bank distribution centers with the opening hours.

00:56:35.250 --> 00:56:48.810
Birgit Pauli-Haack: But I feel like this could also be helpful if you have it all. So here, each on distribution and has their own map and location. But if I'm new into an area or I kind of need to know, where are the

00:56:49.920 --> 00:57:02.940
Birgit Pauli-Haack: The of centers near me. I would love to have a dinner in a map. So what I did was I added all that information from that website into a spreadsheet and then

00:57:04.260 --> 00:57:19.200
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Clean up the organization name with Title title tags and then. So I have the organization, the address the phone number and the opening hours and then I can go to my maps and create a map.

00:57:20.820 --> 00:57:32.010
Birgit Pauli-Haack: So I'm going to paste in the title because you don't want to see me type, especially when I'll have five minutes time. So that's the here chip in food.

00:57:33.990 --> 00:57:38.280
Birgit Pauli-Haack: pantries. And I also change the title of this one. That's organizations.

00:57:39.540 --> 00:57:47.940
Birgit Pauli-Haack: And be that. So, and I import click on import and then I go to Google Drive and I do the recent one.

00:57:49.530 --> 00:57:56.340
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Takes a little bit to load and I wasn't able to speed that up. So I'm okay. So I take that

00:57:57.060 --> 00:58:07.860
Birgit Pauli-Haack: And now I get two questions. The first one is, what are the columns in my spreadsheet that will help Google put the pin in to the right. And that was the address.

00:58:08.670 --> 00:58:12.180
Birgit Pauli-Haack: I have found with other things you could also do just city and state.

00:58:13.140 --> 00:58:27.060
Birgit Pauli-Haack: But also would work. So, and the second question when I continue is what is the title. When you want to display all that information. And I said, that's just the organization. So I finished it. And whoa, Tara.

00:58:27.840 --> 00:58:46.530
Birgit Pauli-Haack: I get my pins and they're all all at once and I click on them and I have that information in there, but I have the when you see the organization is twice in there. So go to my little edit here and I just uncheck the column that has the redundant information.

00:58:48.630 --> 00:58:55.020
Birgit Pauli-Haack: From there I can also so we could preview it. Yeah, so that's the how it will go

00:58:55.590 --> 00:59:04.530
Birgit Pauli-Haack: When people see it and then I click on it and para on the left hand side of control slides in the information of that particular pin organization.

00:59:04.860 --> 00:59:19.620
Birgit Pauli-Haack: With the address as well. The phone number and the opening hours. Okay, so what I don't like is the is the color of the pin the blue that just kind of random pic. I'd like to make that orange. So I can do this here.

00:59:21.090 --> 00:59:31.800
Birgit Pauli-Haack: And then that is all I can select an icon instead of that pin. Things are good more icons and well I think you can spend alone two hours in there. I just

00:59:32.190 --> 00:59:43.530
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Content food for the search and I grabbed the groceries icon and then I clicked on. OK. And then my my map looks like that. So I have that

00:59:45.720 --> 01:00:01.080
Birgit Pauli-Haack: The next step to make it available for embedding in the website is I need to share it and a click here and say, Okay. Anybody has the link can look at it. That's done and then up here.

01:00:02.130 --> 01:00:10.440
Birgit Pauli-Haack: I can do embed on my site I grab the embed code. Go over to my website, add a new post

01:00:11.940 --> 01:00:15.000
Birgit Pauli-Haack: And that's the, that's the slowest part

01:00:16.830 --> 01:00:19.380
Birgit Pauli-Haack: So it's food distribution.

01:00:21.750 --> 01:00:29.490
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Centers and then grabbed our custom HTML code, put my oops, not that one.

01:00:33.240 --> 01:00:34.230
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Grab this one.

01:00:36.600 --> 01:00:37.230
Birgit Pauli-Haack: And

01:00:38.880 --> 01:00:43.440
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Put this in publish and walla

01:00:44.190 --> 01:00:46.740
Eli van der Giessen: Walla, I think you're missing the first line.

01:00:47.070 --> 01:00:49.290
Eli van der Giessen: iframe tax you've just missed a little bit

01:00:50.310 --> 01:00:51.180
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Too fast.

01:00:52.470 --> 01:00:53.160
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Too fast.

01:00:53.850 --> 01:00:55.800
Birgit Pauli-Haack: So is off.

01:00:57.750 --> 01:01:01.440
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Thank you for watching over me, Eli, as always.

01:01:04.710 --> 01:01:07.080
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Okay, so to

01:01:08.160 --> 01:01:08.670
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Go away.

01:01:10.800 --> 01:01:11.280
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Move to

01:01:11.880 --> 01:01:13.470
Birgit Pauli-Haack: La Vida got custom

01:01:17.520 --> 01:01:19.440
Birgit Pauli-Haack: I have 10 seconds. I can do this.

01:01:25.650 --> 01:01:27.240
Birgit Pauli-Haack: And is my my map.

01:01:27.900 --> 01:01:32.670
Eli van der Giessen: Magic at record time. So, uh, yes. This map has

01:01:33.120 --> 01:01:35.820
Eli van der Giessen: To happen super fast. Thank you. Very good. That's amazing.

01:01:36.330 --> 01:01:37.140
Birgit Pauli-Haack: Well, thank you.

01:01:39.600 --> 01:01:41.160
Eli van der Giessen: Lovely. So a perfect

01:01:41.190 --> 01:01:43.110
Birgit Pauli-Haack: A lot of questions or chat things

01:01:43.350 --> 01:01:46.830
Eli van der Giessen: Totally time for you to follow up. Now we're going to pass it on to Susan

01:01:47.910 --> 01:01:59.610
Susan Tenby: Hi, I'm Susan tenby and I work at Tech soup. I run the textbook community which now includes Net Squared. I've been a tech soup, since the year 2000 actually I was on the launch team.

01:02:00.090 --> 01:02:10.890
Susan Tenby: And I'm talking about something that is not innovative in that every all these are very innovative tools. This is something that has been tried and true long time and it is the taxi community.

01:02:11.850 --> 01:02:18.660
Susan Tenby: So I'm going to share my screen and share the textbook company, which you may or may not know, and here we go.

01:02:19.680 --> 01:02:27.060
Susan Tenby: So here's the textbook community. You may as Net Squared organizers and that squared attendees. You may not know about the textbook community.

01:02:27.750 --> 01:02:41.820
Susan Tenby: You can either get there from going to tech soup.org and clicking on community or just the committee homepage or you can go to forums tech soup.org and what this is is a very

01:02:42.450 --> 01:02:50.880
Susan Tenby: Well, it's I wouldn't say very active, but it's an active and passionately managed online community for

01:02:51.420 --> 01:03:01.200
Susan Tenby: Nonprofits and allies, so you don't have to be a nonprofit organization to use the texting community. It is a free forum, anyone can. All you need to do is

01:03:01.470 --> 01:03:12.300
Susan Tenby: Just have a tech stupid. You just register and you don't have to be a 501 c three nonprofit to use it. These are some featured forum top topics. It's basically a tech forum.

01:03:13.200 --> 01:03:19.560
Susan Tenby: That doesn't try to sell you stuff so you'll know that if you go to like CNET or download, you know, download com or one of those

01:03:20.250 --> 01:03:37.200
Susan Tenby: A lot of tech forums are either really overwhelming like tech space works or Stack Exchange and there's so many people on them that it becomes a little intimidating. This is a friend. Think of this is like a friendly tech forum. So we go to the forums page right here.

01:03:38.790 --> 01:03:44.760
Susan Tenby: You can see all of the forums. Those were the featured forums, but if you just go to the forums page under the Community drop down

01:03:45.000 --> 01:03:50.580
Susan Tenby: You'll see all the forums, we have we have an introduction. This is one where if you want to tell tech soup.

01:03:50.910 --> 01:03:54.450
Susan Tenby: Because as you know texting has a catalogue where we

01:03:54.720 --> 01:04:06.330
Susan Tenby: Offer as I mentioned software and hardware at a deep discount to nonprofits and you have a wish list of a product, you'd like us to put on our catalog. That's where you would put this if you have questions about these different topics.

01:04:07.230 --> 01:04:23.490
Susan Tenby: These would be the categories. These are all moderated by friendly people who want to help. No one's mean or intimidating and I wanted to just share the coven 19 for them. These are all resources that have been donated by companies that are free during

01:04:25.110 --> 01:04:28.770
Susan Tenby: Mostly. So these there's articles. All this is all about.

01:04:29.880 --> 01:04:41.670
Susan Tenby: Tech tech tools that will help you pivot online during the pandemic and there are a lot of free offers in this forum. As you can see Jayne Cravens is the

01:04:42.000 --> 01:04:58.080
Susan Tenby: Basically, the main community manager. That's why her name appears most, but these are not all posted by her. This is just the way that it looks. But you can see that people are asking questions and getting answers. So, that is, and you can ask your questions like,

01:04:59.610 --> 01:05:08.820
Susan Tenby: You know, if you have a question about a tool. So that's what I wanted to share with the tech soup forums Eli, if I have a little bit of time. I can move to another tool.

01:05:09.450 --> 01:05:10.680
Eli van der Giessen: Yeah, once you dive right in.

01:05:11.190 --> 01:05:15.840
Susan Tenby: Okay, let me stop sharing and start sharing again. So that was the texting forums.

01:05:17.100 --> 01:05:27.210
Susan Tenby: And again, if you have any questions, and you want to know more about the tech soup forums, please don't hesitate to email me. Susan at Tech soup. Let me re share my screen.

01:05:28.260 --> 01:05:30.570
Susan Tenby: With what I was going to go into

01:05:32.310 --> 01:05:43.350
Susan Tenby: Okay. And there are a couple tools, I would like to go into. First, I'm going to go into a tool called audience and audience. Let me minimize

01:05:43.980 --> 01:05:54.630
Susan Tenby: I don't know if my faces are in the way audience is a tool that is a social media tool that helps you understand your community. So it's an

01:05:55.200 --> 01:06:05.460
Susan Tenby: Audience with an S and so you're right now looking at the insights of the tech stoops Twitter account getting kind of a backstage. Look at that. So as you can see

01:06:05.850 --> 01:06:24.480
Susan Tenby: It gives you some really great demographic information what languages are spoken by your audience and more that I think the most interesting part of this tool are the famous followers and influential followers, because you might not know that, for example,

01:06:26.100 --> 01:06:42.450
Susan Tenby: Ellen DeGeneres is following tech soup. So, and that's our most so that I felt or UNICEF, so you you can learn more about the people that are following you through this tool. So there's famous and influencers. So if I go back

01:06:43.890 --> 01:06:47.790
Susan Tenby: We have takes a second. This is a live demo.

01:06:51.360 --> 01:06:53.100
Susan Tenby: And so if I go back here.

01:06:54.480 --> 01:07:03.180
Susan Tenby: They're also influential followers. So what what's what's nice about this tool is it will tell you people you're not following that might be influential

01:07:03.390 --> 01:07:14.100
Susan Tenby: So that, that's, that's where I'm I really appreciate like oh my goodness, I didn't know I wasn't following back these important people so influential followers and you can see

01:07:15.810 --> 01:07:25.410
Susan Tenby: That again if some of them are the same. And some of them are a little bit different on and in terms of the

01:07:28.140 --> 01:07:39.600
Susan Tenby: In terms of the bio cloud. This is also a helpful tool to tell you what the terms are in people's BIOS on Twitter. So, for example,

01:07:40.260 --> 01:07:57.660
Susan Tenby: The people that are following us have these words in their bio. So this seems right. If anything, jumped out at me is incorrect, like, Oh, why is someone with, you know, Jim's in their bio than I would look into that. So that's this. Do I have time to demo. One more. I last time.

01:07:58.710 --> 01:08:01.350
Eli van der Giessen: Your other time but you're my boss. So abuse it, go for it.

01:08:02.010 --> 01:08:02.940
Susan Tenby: Okay.

01:08:03.180 --> 01:08:05.610
Susan Tenby: Wonderful loving that power for a second.

01:08:06.690 --> 01:08:16.770
Susan Tenby: I'm just going to demo one more tool that I love, which is called could immune it and let me get us back into

01:08:18.450 --> 01:08:24.060
Susan Tenby: Why am I not Oh shoot, I'm okay, here I am sorry.

01:08:25.740 --> 01:08:27.480
Susan Tenby: I will be very quick with this.

01:08:28.530 --> 01:08:35.580
Susan Tenby: I'm going to share my screen again and go back in. Thank you for your patience.

01:08:39.840 --> 01:08:51.540
Susan Tenby: Finally, I want to share a tool called. This is actually tweets map tweaks map is a tool that will help you analyze like kind of learn more about your followers and people on Twitter in general.

01:08:52.710 --> 01:08:58.170
Susan Tenby: It's run by Canadians. Actually, I've tried to introduce a lie to them in the past. So as you can see

01:08:58.830 --> 01:09:07.620
Susan Tenby: You can you can listen in two different hashtags and learn more about your own community. See like looking at your followers and

01:09:08.040 --> 01:09:12.450
Susan Tenby: And where they are like in the world. So that's kind of viewing the interactive map.

01:09:13.410 --> 01:09:31.500
Susan Tenby: So where your followers are based. And you can drill down and say okay this is uh, this is live on the text soup account. So let's say right here. I'm going to look at. We have 43 followers in Guatemala. Who are they, I find this very helpful if I'm going to a city for a conference.

01:09:32.850 --> 01:09:40.410
Susan Tenby: And then I also love this tool for learning about my followers in terms of a type of

01:09:41.550 --> 01:09:57.840
Susan Tenby: Word, they're using. So I'm going to like listen in. So commute listen to an explorer analyze hashtags. I did want here on on Black Lives Matter, who in our community is tweeting about Black Lives Matter and

01:09:58.620 --> 01:10:12.690
Susan Tenby: So I viewed that and I so I was able to drill down and make a Twitter list. So, and then we also drilled it down even further to who's tweeting about Black Lives Matter and tech and then I even drill down further to who's

01:10:13.590 --> 01:10:24.810
Susan Tenby: Tweeting about Black Lives Matter and tech and nonprofits. And with that, I'm going to stop and let other people do their thing. So thank you for listening and feel free to reach out with any questions.

01:10:26.460 --> 01:10:28.200
Eli van der Giessen: Lovely, thank you, Susan. I just

01:10:28.590 --> 01:10:40.680
Eli van der Giessen: To follow up on the questions that are showing up in the chat, we will be sharing all of these links plus the video going to the net square blog and I'll email that to all the attendees by this coming Monday.

01:10:41.880 --> 01:10:44.520
Eli van der Giessen: So next, I'd love to pass the mic over to Mary

01:10:47.820 --> 01:10:48.390
Mary Job: Thank you.

01:10:51.360 --> 01:10:52.140
Mary Job: Hi everyone.

01:10:53.340 --> 01:10:55.050
Mary Job: Viewers and my fellow

01:10:56.670 --> 01:11:14.850
Mary Job: Colleagues, so my name is Maria job I live in Nigeria. I work with big mega paid memberships Pro. What we have is membership plugin for WordPress websites and I'm going to be telling you why that's important for me. I think

01:11:16.080 --> 01:11:30.630
Mary Job: The way I see community building is important for any business and especially with nonprofits because you want to be able to have the community around your organization around your nonprofit. You want to be able to easily reach out to this.

01:11:31.410 --> 01:11:41.730
Mary Job: People will support your business and also the people who you're trying to reach out to and I for me PM for is important because it allows you to

01:11:42.300 --> 01:12:02.880
Mary Job: Manage your members, which is what I said earlier, building a community around your members manage events firms chapters in new markets in membership directory. Now all of this is interesting, but I'm going to show you how I used to own our own websites which is

01:12:04.050 --> 01:12:24.060
Mary Job: Only have just a minute. Okay, here. So this is one. It's a nonprofit that I've run in the village. Here we teach young people and women and how to use computers to empower themselves. Now what. What I like most about PM, is the ability to ask to

01:12:26.040 --> 01:12:37.020
Mary Job: It allows you to create custom fields. So for instance, like previously we use caldera forms are you can see for people want to register for our

01:12:39.180 --> 01:12:59.580
Mary Job: Workshops. And when we did this. It wasn't easy to follow per sale. It wasn't an easy to correlate, you know, to have like all that data in one box and be able to reach out to them or be able to reach out to any of our sponsors. So, what, what I did was to redo the site and

01:13:00.840 --> 01:13:12.660
Mary Job: Install PM for on the site and you can see I have different levels. So PM for allows you to create unlimited membership levels. And what I did was for each of the workshops we run

01:13:12.900 --> 01:13:21.030
Mary Job: We have a level for each one of them and I you can set it to spy out whenever you want. Like I said this to expire in 90 days. Today it's prompt them.

01:13:21.600 --> 01:13:34.830
Mary Job: To come back to the site if they have forgotten that we are here and we're often those workshops will also have a level for volunteers and then we have sponsors. I'll show you what this looks like on the front end of our site.

01:13:35.850 --> 01:13:41.790
Mary Job: So this is what it looks like on the front of the site with a parent wants to sign up there. There are

01:13:42.480 --> 01:13:51.150
Mary Job: Kids already acting, they could do that. And you can select custom fields we have here we have a chance to the bed. We have the person's name.

01:13:51.570 --> 01:14:04.170
Mary Job: You have the parents move on. But this is specific. Just to this level ICT and life skills for teenagers. They also the same for the entrepreneurship course because it's basically saying

01:14:04.860 --> 01:14:16.740
Mary Job: Sign up for my entrepreneurship workshop I can be asking them for their child state of bed because it's not relevant. So you can see I have there is no proposed business name at our study one and other

01:14:17.340 --> 01:14:24.630
Mary Job: Things and the same thing for the sponsors as well. So here the sponsor can choose to

01:14:26.070 --> 01:14:33.300
Mary Job: Sponsor with their own amount and for this I'm using the donations extension 4pm

01:14:34.350 --> 01:14:46.530
Mary Job: Now, what I like about for me. What I like about any software is documentation, you know, being able to do things without having to reach out to decoders of the software and that's one thing.

01:14:46.950 --> 01:15:02.970
Mary Job: That PM for as a lot. You can see here you want to download and every step of the way. And the things you should do when you put PM for your site. It's all listed here. You want to restrict content you want to create your pages.

01:15:04.530 --> 01:15:14.820
Mary Job: If you can think it you can do it. That's what I say with WordPress and it's almost true 4pm four as well like 99% true. So as I was saying, um,

01:15:15.720 --> 01:15:24.750
Mary Job: Yeah, and then the one other thing that I like is being able to have a front end profile. So if I were to click here. This means that people

01:15:25.650 --> 01:15:33.720
Mary Job: Movies at our site or register will not have access to the WordPress back end and see all of the clones and has now goes on that.

01:15:34.320 --> 01:15:44.640
Mary Job: If they click on your profile, they can see the information at a glance without I want to go into the back end of our site. I'm, I'm going to have less lefty life. I don't have

01:15:45.030 --> 01:15:46.050
Eli van der Giessen: 30 seconds.

01:15:46.560 --> 01:15:58.680
Mary Job: Oh, great status icons. So for pricing pamper is free and is open source, people usually ask us like is a free version, different from the premium version. It's the same thing.

01:15:59.100 --> 01:16:06.120
Mary Job: Where you pay for support, which is a 297 per year and you're able to use don't file size when you pay for support.

01:16:06.690 --> 01:16:13.740
Mary Job: You have access to be able to reach out to us personally guide you when you have troubles, which are p AMP a pod website.

01:16:14.280 --> 01:16:32.400
Mary Job: Also you can reach us on our contact form on our support page for that or you can send us a new here when you want to. And if you're a developer, you want to extend PM firm. You can also check out our documentation, which is pretty robust. Like I said earlier,

01:16:33.690 --> 01:16:35.400
Mary Job: Yeah, so now be oh

01:16:37.560 --> 01:16:38.400
Mary Job: Thank you. I

01:16:39.840 --> 01:16:42.630
Mary Job: Think I should have like few seconds, let's say,

01:16:43.350 --> 01:16:51.450
Eli van der Giessen: So thank you so much. Mary that that's lovely. Um, now we're going to continue in the WordPress mode. I'm gonna pass the baton to Matt.

01:16:53.910 --> 01:17:06.840
Matt Cromwell: Everyone. Thanks so much. I have been in the web building stuff for a really long time. But today I have been taking notes furiously because there's been so many awesome resources here.

01:17:07.380 --> 01:17:26.910
Matt Cromwell: Really, really great and glad to be on this this webinar. Thanks so much. Today I want to talk about give WP which is a donation platform for WordPress. One thing that I always like to lead with and talking about give is in this world of data information commercialization.

01:17:28.350 --> 01:17:38.520
Matt Cromwell: You become the product so many times your information is the thing that gets sold at whether you know it or not. And the great thing about open source.

01:17:39.150 --> 01:17:45.810
Matt Cromwell: Software is that that's not the case. The product serves you. You are not serving the product.

01:17:46.590 --> 01:17:57.600
Matt Cromwell: So, and that's that's what you get with WordPress and that's what you get with gift WP if you want to make sure to protect your donors and you want to make sure that your information stays only yours.

01:17:57.990 --> 01:18:10.140
Matt Cromwell: The best way to do that is to use open source software and to own your own data. So that's what WordPress provides you and give them up as well. This is a sample site that we have with gift WP

01:18:10.470 --> 01:18:16.080
Matt Cromwell: Give them up as a free plugin and we do have paid add ons, as well, to allow you to extend it out.

01:18:16.560 --> 01:18:25.890
Matt Cromwell: But the free plugin is very, very robust with lots of great features and this website here in particular is built with Astra, which is a great theme.

01:18:26.250 --> 01:18:34.320
Matt Cromwell: And for WordPress and and highlights gift WP here you can see that you can choose the levels really easily.

01:18:35.310 --> 01:18:46.590
Matt Cromwell: And this. These are all customizable. You can make these to be whatever levels you want. And of course you can also just say I want to give $71 and 75 cents. Exactly, which is a excellent amount to give

01:18:48.390 --> 01:18:55.080
Matt Cromwell: And you can. We're also highlighting here that we have two different add ons here. This one is called currency switcher

01:18:55.350 --> 01:19:03.690
Matt Cromwell: For many organizations. They want to be able to donate in multiple currencies and you can do that with give up, just by clicking on the currency.

01:19:04.200 --> 01:19:15.540
Matt Cromwell: And also you can make this or, alternatively, a recurring gift and you can choose whether you want it to be every month or every day, every week, every quarter every year.

01:19:16.020 --> 01:19:27.840
Matt Cromwell: And these are these types of options are a little bit dependent on your payment gateway of choice. So we integrate with the most popular payment gateways, whether it's PayPal or authorize net or Stripe.

01:19:28.980 --> 01:19:38.640
Matt Cromwell: The. We also have a square integration because square is now doing web payments as well, not just the kiosks stuff slide, not the sliders anymore.

01:19:39.810 --> 01:19:52.380
Matt Cromwell: And and and they each have different ways to support recurring donations. And additionally, we have a way in which you can dedicate your donation. We call it tributes

01:19:53.670 --> 01:20:07.680
Matt Cromwell: So here you see a very similar interface. And you can also make these monthly, if you like, but let's say we want to dedicate this donation and I'm going to dedicate it in order of for deeds, because she's awesome.

01:20:11.100 --> 01:20:14.220
Matt Cromwell: And I'm going to hopefully type or right name with it.

01:20:15.810 --> 01:20:16.710
Matt Cromwell: Or less right

01:20:18.240 --> 01:20:28.560
Matt Cromwell: So, and I have the option here where I can mail a card, which means essentially that you as an admin of the side you can design an E card.

01:20:29.160 --> 01:20:36.180
Matt Cromwell: That will allow you to when the donor donates they get a PDF that they can download and they can actually mail that card themselves.

01:20:36.450 --> 01:20:46.770
Matt Cromwell: Or you can opt to that your organization is going to mail the card. Maybe you have some really nice cards that you've printed out and you have in your office and every time a donation goes out. You want to mail those out.

01:20:47.580 --> 01:20:56.970
Matt Cromwell: These folks can say that they would like you to mail a card to repeat, or you could send her a new card instead

01:20:57.930 --> 01:21:18.630
Matt Cromwell: And you can personalize the message here. All of these are very full, full features and and make your donations that much more enticing to your donor. So another thing I wanted to highlight super quick is we're coming out with a new version version 2.7 very soon. And it's going to include

01:21:20.040 --> 01:21:23.670
Matt Cromwell: A new feature that it's called form templates and

01:21:24.750 --> 01:21:35.400
Matt Cromwell: Essentially, what it does is allows us to have a lot more ways in which to present forms in in in more exciting ways. And so our first one that we're coming out with is a multi step donation form.

01:21:35.790 --> 01:21:49.530
Matt Cromwell: And here, this is the back end here where you can see how you can create your donation form, you have all of these options to choose from to make your form as simple or as robust as you need and you can add goals.

01:21:50.640 --> 01:21:54.690
Matt Cromwell: You can add your terms and conditions on to the form itself.

01:21:56.520 --> 01:22:01.470
Matt Cromwell: You can have offline donations and we're also coming out with a feature called

01:22:01.860 --> 01:22:12.060
Matt Cromwell: Perform stripe account. So essentially every single form can have its own stripe account attached to it. So if you're a chapter and national chapter and you have lots of different

01:22:12.990 --> 01:22:23.460
Matt Cromwell: Individual organizations and they all have their individual bank accounts, you can have one website for the national chapter and each city or each chapter has its own form where they are getting done a

01:22:23.460 --> 01:22:24.570
Eli van der Giessen: 30 seconds mad.

01:22:25.410 --> 01:22:38.460
Matt Cromwell: Oh, cool. And the last one I'll just show a preview of the new form. This is the new form that's coming out in 2.7 and there's a custom field I threw in there at the last minute and

01:22:39.180 --> 01:22:50.850
Matt Cromwell: It steps through like this and we're in test mode here and we can donate with PayPal offline test donations is just a test gateway and I hit donate and

01:22:52.530 --> 01:23:03.540
Matt Cromwell: It loads automatically right here on the page. It doesn't take you away anywhere else my local environment is a little slow. Can it be 32nd mark, who knows.

01:23:05.940 --> 01:23:09.360
Eli van der Giessen: We're giving you extra 10 seconds. Let's see. Load load load.

01:23:11.220 --> 01:23:11.700
Eli van der Giessen: Damage

01:23:12.420 --> 01:23:27.120
Matt Cromwell: And also might just be my local environment like Oh cool. I came through. So there we go. Here's our thank you page a great big thank you and sharing on social and all of those things. We also have an ability to download a PDF receipt. So anyway,

01:23:28.260 --> 01:23:29.580
Matt Cromwell: Well, thank you so much, Matt.

01:23:30.150 --> 01:23:36.210
Eli van der Giessen: And definitely take a look into the chat window. There's been lots of questions, especially around localization. So people are going to want to hear more from you.

01:23:38.370 --> 01:23:41.610
Eli van der Giessen: So now let's move over to Romania, it's Daniels turn

01:23:43.260 --> 01:23:54.450
Daniel Secareanu: Know if you want to. This is Daniel from Bucharest, Romania, and today I'm going to walk you through a little bit of website security through Cloud flare.

01:23:56.370 --> 01:24:05.790
Daniel Secareanu: I hope you can see my screen basically cloud is a, it's a web service that helps protect and accelerate your websites.

01:24:06.390 --> 01:24:24.930
Daniel Secareanu: What it made me Dunn's it can function as a DNS management in a CDN platform. So basically you can manage all your organizational domains within cloud fuller and this can be a great advantage if for example you have a top level domain.

01:24:26.190 --> 01:24:32.040
Daniel Secareanu: Organization in your country that doesn't have a centralized domain management solution like we have here in Romania.

01:24:33.150 --> 01:24:41.040
Daniel Secareanu: And also you have made a lot of security features that you can use in your classroom account in order to protect your website.

01:24:42.120 --> 01:24:44.250
Daniel Secareanu: As you can see on the screen. There's quite a long list.

01:24:44.250 --> 01:24:46.950
Daniel Secareanu: Of features, we're not going to go through all of them because

01:24:48.030 --> 01:24:55.020
Daniel Secareanu: Most of them can get quite technical, but let's look inside the cloud flutter account what it looks like.

01:24:56.010 --> 01:25:05.910
Daniel Secareanu: The cool thing about cloud scenarios that you can actually integrate several different accounts into the same account. So for example, if you're helping or if you're a

01:25:06.300 --> 01:25:20.460
Daniel Secareanu: That's a technology consultant, like I am. And if you're helping the multiple organizations, you can actually manage all those clouds letter accounts within your own account. So that's a good great facility because you can access directly all these

01:25:21.990 --> 01:25:24.690
Daniel Secareanu: All these accounts in your own cloud account.

01:25:27.450 --> 01:25:35.190
Daniel Secareanu: What you can do within a cloud for account is basically we can add the site or a domain. And as you can see here, there's quite a lot of them that you can have

01:25:36.870 --> 01:25:46.500
Daniel Secareanu: Basically, what this means is that from the platform that you bought your domain name from. You need to set it to point to the cloud flare.

01:25:48.210 --> 01:25:51.150
Daniel Secareanu: Maybe servers. Yeah. So basically when you have

01:25:54.000 --> 01:25:59.130
Daniel Secareanu: A domain name that you want to move into into cloud Fleur, you have to point it

01:25:59.160 --> 01:25:59.520
Daniel Secareanu: To the

01:26:00.180 --> 01:26:04.380
Daniel Secareanu: name server so that cloud for can manage that domain name for you.

01:26:06.150 --> 01:26:18.030
Daniel Secareanu: As you can see it has a pretty easy to use web based platform so you can manage it. The quite intuitively, there's a couple of let's say important elements that you need to count.

01:26:19.500 --> 01:26:30.570
Daniel Secareanu: Cloud flow can act as a DNS management platform, which means that you can point certain some domains or certain elements from your name servers.

01:26:30.990 --> 01:26:37.890
Daniel Secareanu: Toward the physical or virtual server behind and traffic will pass transparently through Cloud.

01:26:38.580 --> 01:26:56.310
Daniel Secareanu: But you can also proxy your traffic through clouds where and this means that proxy in your traffic or web traffic through Cloud flare. You basically had a layer of both performance and protection between the your website visitor and your actual website and

01:26:57.420 --> 01:27:09.540
Daniel Secareanu: Some of these security features that you can access is basically to create the an HTTPS or an encrypted connection between your website or your server and

01:27:10.740 --> 01:27:12.030
Daniel Secareanu: Your website visitors.

01:27:13.050 --> 01:27:31.200
Daniel Secareanu: For example, if you don't have a secure connection, you should try to implement one for your website and actually cloud for allows you to create three SSL certificates that you can implement on to your web server that will secure the connection between a website visitor in your website.

01:27:32.310 --> 01:27:39.210
Daniel Secareanu: On top of this, you have a web application firewall, which allows you to check the traffic that

01:27:40.830 --> 01:27:46.170
Daniel Secareanu: Is going through your through your website and to see if you have any let's say

01:27:48.630 --> 01:27:59.790
Daniel Secareanu: Malware traffic or dubious traffic and so on. You can actually set firewall rules for example, and here we don't have one, but I'll just create a quick one.

01:28:00.480 --> 01:28:11.220
Daniel Secareanu: And I'll call it threat score. Yeah, this is the easiest basic URL that you can create and you can say, okay, I want to block all the traffic.

01:28:15.450 --> 01:28:25.320
Daniel Secareanu: That is that as a threat score of one or greater than one. Yeah, deploy their own and from now on the firewall will actually be a block.

01:28:26.340 --> 01:28:36.480
Daniel Secareanu: IPs that are blacklisted or traffic that it's strange, and it comes from. I don't know, be infected the website around the world that are known to

01:28:37.800 --> 01:28:38.760
Daniel Secareanu: To try to hack.

01:28:40.110 --> 01:28:45.960
Daniel Secareanu: Or brute force attack various websites. So this is a very basic

01:28:47.040 --> 01:28:55.410
Daniel Secareanu: tool that you can use. You can also block individual IP IPs for for the same purpose.

01:28:56.160 --> 01:29:05.880
Daniel Secareanu: For example, if you're using WordPress as a as a CMS for your website. You can install security plugins that will let you know periodically, what kinds of IPS are

01:29:06.600 --> 01:29:14.190
Daniel Secareanu: Trying to break into your WordPress website so you can pick those IPS and add them here into the into the cloud flat firewall.

01:29:14.610 --> 01:29:31.320
Daniel Secareanu: And then once they're trying, they try to access your website. Again, they will be blocked before even reaching your website. Yeah. So this is another security functionality that you can deploy using the cloud and it can he can see here

01:29:32.640 --> 01:29:36.000
Daniel Secareanu: Some IPS have been already blocked based on the

01:29:36.270 --> 01:29:37.440
Eli van der Giessen: 30 seconds.

01:29:39.660 --> 01:29:41.160
Daniel Secareanu: In terms of speed and

01:29:42.360 --> 01:29:45.990
Daniel Secareanu: Senior opportunities, you can actually

01:29:47.190 --> 01:29:56.820
Daniel Secareanu: modify your HTML, CSS, and JavaScript on your website so that your pages load faster. And actually if you if you

01:29:57.330 --> 01:30:17.700
Daniel Secareanu: Proxy your website's traffic through Cloud Fleur cloud were also acts as a global CDN content delivery network, which means that most of the all of the static resources or assets of your website will be hosted on cloud for and will be delivered from their hedge servers as close to

01:30:18.930 --> 01:30:21.960
Daniel Secareanu: Your website as possible and to give you a quick

01:30:23.640 --> 01:30:30.330
Daniel Secareanu: Idea about how much traffic actually cloud flare can cash for you. Let's look at

01:30:31.950 --> 01:30:47.550
Daniel Secareanu: A website like the WWE or Romania website and we can see that last month, half a million requests have passed through Cloud Fleur and out of which about 30% were cached by cloud flirt. And in terms of

01:30:47.760 --> 01:30:49.020
Eli van der Giessen: OpenStack at least

01:30:49.350 --> 01:30:52.200
Daniel Secareanu: More than he bites of traffic have

01:30:54.780 --> 01:31:01.830
Daniel Secareanu: Reached the server and out of this to do bites work cached or delivered by koffler

01:31:02.460 --> 01:31:02.760
Daniel Secareanu: Right.

01:31:02.790 --> 01:31:04.260
Eli van der Giessen: Well, thank you so much.

01:31:05.490 --> 01:31:12.840
Eli van der Giessen: You're welcome. The pleasure, so I know and if you want to learn more about cloud flair there's both obviously the free services.

01:31:13.110 --> 01:31:23.880
Eli van der Giessen: But through tech soup. There's also a discount program for some of the more advanced pro services as well have dropped the link into the chat. Now I'd love to pass the baton over to my era.

01:31:26.370 --> 01:31:27.900
Mayura Sandeep: Hi everyone this is

01:31:29.220 --> 01:31:36.480
Mayura Sandeep: My Yoda from Bengaluru so I represent that square Bengaluru a pretty new. This is my first event with

01:31:37.020 --> 01:31:44.250
Mayura Sandeep: Net Squared. And I also happen to run an agency called Free marketing for nonprofits. So we work with NGOs.

01:31:45.120 --> 01:31:51.000
Mayura Sandeep: So it's wonderful to be here with all of you and talk about a tool that I believe is the need of need of the hour.

01:31:51.360 --> 01:32:01.950
Mayura Sandeep: Considering the pandemic situation which is crowdfunding. A lot of NGOs today have emergency fundraising needs and crowdfunding offers I believe a cheap.

01:32:02.910 --> 01:32:22.650
Mayura Sandeep: And quick alternative to raise funds. So there are a lot of crowdfunding platforms out there, but not all of them are effective for nonprofit crowdfunding. So I'd like to share a few that I believe work well for nonprofits. There is a classy. There is a Go Fund Me.

01:32:24.120 --> 01:32:34.890
Mayura Sandeep: There's friendly engineering, India, we have two popular platforms kato and give India there are a lot more options out there. I encourage you to go and explore

01:32:36.690 --> 01:32:49.380
Mayura Sandeep: Now that we've figured out which platform to use. I think the next step is to go and set up your crowdfunding campaign on the platform, which is also pretty easy. You go to the platform and click on Start your campaign.

01:32:49.860 --> 01:33:03.690
Mayura Sandeep: And the platform takes you through a few quick and easy steps and lets you set up your campaign page, but there are a few things we need to keep in mind to make this campaign page more effective. There's always a but

01:33:04.860 --> 01:33:15.330
Mayura Sandeep: So I'm going to take you through a campaign page that I helped an NGO set up maybe a couple of weeks ago and tell you how what I did to make it effective

01:33:16.620 --> 01:33:24.930
Mayura Sandeep: So on why setting up the campaign page. I believe it's all about effective communication. So the first thing you tend to notice is the

01:33:25.320 --> 01:33:32.610
Mayura Sandeep: Campaign image the banner image. So choose an image that is that clearly indicates your campaign impact.

01:33:33.000 --> 01:33:42.120
Mayura Sandeep: In this case, it's an it's an NGO that works in the education sector, the next thing that people notice is your campaign title. So make sure I clearly indicates, you can be an objective.

01:33:42.540 --> 01:33:45.120
Mayura Sandeep: So in our case it's helped rural children get back to school.

01:33:45.780 --> 01:33:56.880
Mayura Sandeep: So when it comes to campaign communication itself. Are there are a few things that you need to communicate clearly one is talk about the problem you're trying to solve and why it's important to solve it now.

01:33:57.120 --> 01:34:09.180
Mayura Sandeep: So that sense of urgency really helps make your money can be more effective, I believe, and then talk about how you are planning to solve it as a nonprofit and why you need funds to help solve the problem.

01:34:10.170 --> 01:34:24.360
Mayura Sandeep: Finally, you have to talk about how every donation can make a significant impact and help you solve that problem quickly and it always helps to clearly indicate the impact of every donation. You see, for example, we have said to a small donation of

01:34:25.800 --> 01:34:31.620
Mayura Sandeep: You can ensure one to report child has access to school for the whole year. So it really helps to be clear on that front.

01:34:33.420 --> 01:34:40.230
Mayura Sandeep: Now every campaign every crowdfunding platform allows you to have a few preset donation options so

01:34:41.310 --> 01:34:50.760
Mayura Sandeep: It helps to choose donation options which have a clear impact associated with them. So in our case, we've said we have chosen amount that helps you educate a child for the whole year.

01:34:51.930 --> 01:35:01.530
Mayura Sandeep: You could choose whatever works for you. Now that you've set up your campaign page. I think you submit it. And in a couple of days. Hopefully the platform will make it live.

01:35:01.860 --> 01:35:07.980
Mayura Sandeep: So once it's live, what next, so no one's going to donate to you unless they know that you can pin it exists right so

01:35:08.310 --> 01:35:16.710
Mayura Sandeep: The crowdfunding platform offers some cool features to help you spread the word. So every platform has social sharing options. So make sure you use them generously.

01:35:17.490 --> 01:35:29.700
Mayura Sandeep: You will have to activate your volunteers your board members, your employees. Just about everybody in your support team to go and click on these buttons and share it on their own personal, social media pages.

01:35:30.000 --> 01:35:34.860
Mayura Sandeep: And make an appeal on your behalf. So this is the more people who know about your campaign, the more fun things

01:35:35.130 --> 01:35:44.820
Mayura Sandeep: So there's another really cool feature that every crowdfunding platform offers which is start a campaign to anybody who really believes in your cause, and is passionate about your course can go and set up a sub campaign.

01:35:45.090 --> 01:35:52.860
Mayura Sandeep: To raise funding support your may help you raise funds for your campaign. So in our case, what we did is we reached out to our top volunteers.

01:35:53.520 --> 01:35:59.040
Mayura Sandeep: In the most circle of volunteers and we send them a male and ask them to become a champion volunteer fundraisers.

01:35:59.580 --> 01:36:06.720
Mayura Sandeep: And this really helps because this becomes peer to peer fundraising they reach out to their family and friends and appeal on your behalf and raise funds.

01:36:07.080 --> 01:36:14.820
Mayura Sandeep: So it just really helped us. So as you can see there are 41 people who set up campaigns on behalf of the nonprofit.

01:36:15.120 --> 01:36:22.230
Mayura Sandeep: And that helped us raise a large amount of money about 1.7 million rupees in less than two weeks, which is not bad at all.

01:36:22.680 --> 01:36:31.020
Mayura Sandeep: So these are some cool features that I wanted to share with you about how to make a crowdfunding campaign more effective. It's all about activating your support groups and spreading the word

01:36:31.500 --> 01:36:45.150
Mayura Sandeep: So when it comes to costing typically crowdfunding platform shared between five to 10% which includes two costs. One is the platform fee, and the other is the payment gateway fee and there are a few platforms that are also please so

01:36:46.260 --> 01:36:55.800
Mayura Sandeep: One of them is Go Fund Me with sales data zero percent as against competitors, which are five to 10% but then they do charge of payment gateway see

01:36:56.340 --> 01:37:07.440
Mayura Sandeep: There are some other platforms that also allow you to raise this platform fee as well to your donors so they added to your overall donation amount and help you raise through them.

01:37:08.820 --> 01:37:14.250
Mayura Sandeep: So yeah, those are some tips and tricks that I've helped me and I move because you and your next opening gambit.

01:37:15.030 --> 01:37:17.850
Eli van der Giessen: Five minutes on the button. Perfect. Thank you so much.

01:37:18.270 --> 01:37:22.350
Eli van der Giessen: Thank you, Ellie perfectly. Next, I'd love to pass it on to Roger

01:37:30.570 --> 01:37:31.980
Eli van der Giessen: Oh, sorry, who is currently muted.

01:37:34.980 --> 01:37:35.850
Rajan Gupta: Can you guys hear me now.

01:37:38.130 --> 01:37:43.140
Rajan Gupta: Perfect. Excellent. So Greetings everyone just wanted to bring to

01:37:44.340 --> 01:37:53.340
Rajan Gupta: A different concept in terms of how we can take technology and use it effectively. So my background, just real quick is 30 years in enterprise consulting

01:37:53.700 --> 01:38:01.800
Rajan Gupta: Helping technology be deployed effectively in an organization. Many of you come around terms like digital transformation.

01:38:02.760 --> 01:38:13.470
Rajan Gupta: We need to take advantage of technology usually those type of things. You mean that you need to replace your existing systems move to Cloud based solutions extensive project and usually fail.

01:38:14.250 --> 01:38:22.980
Rajan Gupta: What we have seen is you can actually deploy a new concept called digital workers is intelligent automation, where you can keep your existing systems.

01:38:23.370 --> 01:38:29.730
Rajan Gupta: But take a look at your processes internally to see how you can deploy or inject as I call it technology.

01:38:29.970 --> 01:38:39.330
Rajan Gupta: The key strategic points that allow you to take advantage of new solutions and tools that are available in the market, while maintaining your existing solution set

01:38:39.780 --> 01:38:54.480
Rajan Gupta: Some of the example the nonprofit side is I work with a couple of different nonprofit someone board of them in the Atlanta market and what we're looking at is each nonprofit will have somewhere around dozen plus solutions that they usually deploy.

01:38:55.740 --> 01:39:06.390
Rajan Gupta: You know Mayra just mentioned, for example, donations. There was a conversation earlier by donations. As you collect donations. You need to update your financial systems you need to update your membership systems.

01:39:07.320 --> 01:39:20.010
Rajan Gupta: Update your, you know, various social media sites, all of that does is done manually. So let me give you a couple of examples of where intelligent automation can actually be deployed.

01:39:20.490 --> 01:39:28.860
Rajan Gupta: And what we call digital workforce and it's basically providing digital assistance to your existing staff so they can work more official

01:39:30.660 --> 01:39:34.500
Rajan Gupta: One of the, one of the best examples that I can show you if you can see my screen is

01:39:35.790 --> 01:39:42.690
Rajan Gupta: A video where a mortgage company, for example, has a front end system that they expose to the brokers.

01:39:43.170 --> 01:39:52.650
Rajan Gupta: That system that needs to be translated into backend system where the bank actually processes the mortgage the funding occurs. And then the manager account.

01:39:53.430 --> 01:40:04.470
Rajan Gupta: The bad took about an hour and 15 minutes per application to transfer data from this new web based tool to their legacy backend system.

01:40:04.980 --> 01:40:18.510
Rajan Gupta: Which they've had for last 20 some years. So what you're seeing is a digital worker actually grabbing data from the new Bevan's system and automatically populating into the existing backend system.

01:40:19.230 --> 01:40:24.780
Rajan Gupta: The options for the bank or hey, we could do something where we could go change this back end system.

01:40:25.290 --> 01:40:35.280
Rajan Gupta: Right. And if you were to change it. We're talking several years project multimillion dollar project and that it would take, you know, significant amount of backs resources to make that happen.

01:40:35.820 --> 01:40:48.900
Rajan Gupta: Whereas digital worker is actually taking that same information that you have moving data from a new system to an older legacy systems of the bank so service customers without making any changes.

01:40:49.530 --> 01:41:00.840
Rajan Gupta: Time to deploy digital worker was about two weeks, the savings for the bag or 20 x in terms of the cost of deployed digital worker versus having to go and change.

01:41:02.130 --> 01:41:06.210
Rajan Gupta: The existing bank system. Right. And then you also reduce your errors.

01:41:06.810 --> 01:41:17.760
Rajan Gupta: Similarly, if you think across your organizations, when it comes to nonprofits is you've also got a multitude of systems, right, you've got a financial system, you got a membership system, you got your social media platforms.

01:41:18.270 --> 01:41:27.390
Rajan Gupta: How do you take advantage of keeping your existing systems, but then instead of manually entered this data across each individual system.

01:41:27.810 --> 01:41:37.320
Rajan Gupta: Deployed digital workers are either called digital assistants, providing that help to your staff so that you can move information from one application to another piece of

01:41:38.370 --> 01:41:50.670
Rajan Gupta: None of this requires any changes your existing systems because it is all done, just like you, I would add to the data which is either through screens keystrokes or whatever. So it doesn't require

01:41:51.360 --> 01:42:00.930
Rajan Gupta: Going back to your vendor asking them to make changes to the software. It actually resides on top of that, right. One example is New York founding. It's a very large

01:42:01.680 --> 01:42:12.120
Rajan Gupta: belfer child also position of New York, they deploy digital workers recently and they were able to save something to the tune of four case hours per worker.

01:42:13.020 --> 01:42:24.750
Rajan Gupta: Per week so that translated to save 100,000 plus hours a year for them. So the idea behind digital workers is if you've got repetitive tasks activities that you

01:42:25.110 --> 01:42:40.800
Rajan Gupta: do on a daily basis on that are, you know, continue continuously repeating themselves, then you can deploy the job work to do those tasks for you and free up your time to do things that really matter like go talk to your volunteers to talk to your fundraisers, and so on.

01:42:41.820 --> 01:42:53.370
Rajan Gupta: Well, from a licensing standpoint we partner with a company called your path they have been very, very generous and providing free licensing for most cases. In some cases, heavily discounted pricing.

01:42:53.970 --> 01:43:06.660
Rajan Gupta: To nonprofits as part of us as an organization to deploy digital workers. We work with large enterprises and we actually will fund with them. So in a sense, crowdfunding.

01:43:07.020 --> 01:43:14.940
Rajan Gupta: We actually present your case to them and they may provide funding as well to help you implement solutions that allow you to

01:43:15.210 --> 01:43:26.070
Rajan Gupta: Take advantage of digital workers. So if you have repetitive processes that you feel that your staff is overwhelmed and this would rather not do then consider workers.

01:43:27.180 --> 01:43:36.540
Rajan Gupta: A global issue of a contact info, feel free to reach out to me. I'm happy to discuss processes we don't charge any service fees to

01:43:37.230 --> 01:43:51.960
Rajan Gupta: nonprofits to please have a discussion around where which processes may be helpful with digital hopefully this is helpful to you guys to consider and before you go around making any changes. Consider digital workers.

01:43:53.700 --> 01:44:00.900
Eli van der Giessen: Rajan. Thank you so much. That's very helpful. Thanks so much for sharing your contact information. Now we're going to go to Robert

01:44:03.720 --> 01:44:22.680
Robert Schafbuch: Good morning, good afternoon, good evening to everyone is Nicole and proud to be part of the panel this morning with my esteemed colleagues my driver chief Bo. I'm a net square organizer in Iowa City, Iowa and my consulting firm goodwill services does pro bono work for nonprofits.

01:44:23.820 --> 01:44:33.390
Robert Schafbuch: So what I thought I would share with everyone. Today is a a tool to help essentially tell the story of your information.

01:44:33.720 --> 01:44:44.070
Robert Schafbuch: You know, I think Birgit showed a good example of presenting Geo data on a map and Susan showed a another amazing tool with kind of presenting the volumes of data within

01:44:44.550 --> 01:44:58.320
Robert Schafbuch: Social media and other venues. What I wanted to show was Google Data studio as another option, you know, to kind of tell the story of your, of your information. So I will share my screen here.

01:44:59.610 --> 01:45:00.270
Robert Schafbuch: And

01:45:01.440 --> 01:45:13.800
Robert Schafbuch: What I've really found to be kind of appealing mo Google Data studio. First is, it's free. So when you're, when we talk about the use cases for these tools.

01:45:14.940 --> 01:45:25.020
Robert Schafbuch: Certainly is pretty common that we need to, you know, present information about the the nonprofit, whether its operations, your financials or whatnot to various audiences, whether it's your board.

01:45:26.250 --> 01:45:35.640
Robert Schafbuch: If you need to communicate to your volunteers, get information from your volunteers share information with your volunteers, this might be something for you to think about. So

01:45:36.330 --> 01:45:46.200
Robert Schafbuch: One of the appealing, as I see it benefits of Google Data studio as well is kind of simple nature of its user interface. So I'll just kind of go through a brief demo here.

01:45:47.400 --> 01:46:05.160
Robert Schafbuch: One of the strong features are the templates that you can use to start with, and maybe just one thing to kind of start with is the, you know, naturally, one could probably suspect that with Google Analytics being a very powerful tool for

01:46:07.020 --> 01:46:17.850
Robert Schafbuch: Website analysis. There's a plugin that's or there's a template that you can cite your own website and look at your information and essentially assess usability of your

01:46:18.720 --> 01:46:25.470
Robert Schafbuch: You know the metrics around your website kind of similar to what was being presented earlier but a little bit more basic quite candidly

01:46:26.850 --> 01:46:39.540
Robert Schafbuch: So with Google Data studio really the appealing piece of this tools you can essentially connect to a variety of data sources. So based on where your

01:46:40.740 --> 01:46:52.170
Robert Schafbuch: Information is residing as one can imagine you're prompted with primarily a data being stored and served in a Google source. So, for the sake of today.

01:46:52.680 --> 01:47:10.410
Robert Schafbuch: Will use a Google Sheet. So certainly, probably not in the hit home with a non profit audience, but we'll start with a supermarket sales. That's my, that's my data. I've just got a simple sheet. So I will connect to this sheet. And then what you'll get presented with is a

01:47:11.760 --> 01:47:13.050
Robert Schafbuch: Well, here's your sheet. Pardon me.

01:47:14.640 --> 01:47:16.110
Robert Schafbuch: I will connect

01:47:16.140 --> 01:47:18.030
Eli van der Giessen: To the data sheet him at its last Robert

01:47:18.420 --> 01:47:26.820
Robert Schafbuch: Okay, I'll kind of speed it up here. So there's a tool to kind of connect to your data sheet. And then what you'll be presented with is a canvas.

01:47:27.120 --> 01:47:38.550
Robert Schafbuch: And this is where basically as the kind of the term implies the you got a creative venue for you to kind of tell your story. So there's a number of pre configured visuals.

01:47:39.090 --> 01:47:50.430
Robert Schafbuch: That you can select and essentially tell the story of your data. Um, so there are line charts bar charts pie charts.

01:47:51.180 --> 01:48:06.300
Robert Schafbuch: And kind of similar to what Oregon showed earlier Bergen showed earlier, is if you've got Geo Data configured in your data set, you can essentially present that on the on a map here. Once you have your

01:48:07.740 --> 01:48:15.180
Robert Schafbuch: Canvas kind of configured with your visuals, you can share that with other members, particularly, of course, if they have Google accounts.

01:48:15.840 --> 01:48:31.230
Robert Schafbuch: And there's other options that you can have to basically build a whole series of visualizations around your data several pages. Um, so what I've also found to be appealing is the

01:48:32.610 --> 01:48:47.760
Robert Schafbuch: Feature to embed your reports into other clients on here I have a SharePoint site. I have my SharePoint Online Azure subscription configured with my G. Sweet.

01:48:49.890 --> 01:49:09.120
Robert Schafbuch: Organizations. So here I can you know essentially present and embed my Google Data studio visualizations within a SharePoint site and just like again i'm i'm kind of referring to Burger quite a bit here, but she just. It's literally a copy and paste of your embedding code.

01:49:10.680 --> 01:49:15.300
Robert Schafbuch: For those that are very technically sound. There are GitHub.

01:49:16.710 --> 01:49:20.730
Robert Schafbuch: There you can create your own visualizations. There's samples out on GitHub.

01:49:20.790 --> 01:49:21.690
Robert Schafbuch: 30 seconds.

01:49:22.500 --> 01:49:23.070

01:49:24.420 --> 01:49:30.780
Robert Schafbuch: I think those are some of the things that hopefully can be appealing to those that want to use Google Data studio to tell the story of your day.

01:49:34.290 --> 01:49:43.440
Eli van der Giessen: Thank you, Robert. It's super robust, I would encourage people to play around if they've got any data. It's totally free. Next I'd like to pass it over to Deseret

01:49:47.370 --> 01:49:48.300
Desire Seyram Sackitey: All right. Thank you very much.

01:49:49.980 --> 01:49:52.890
Desire Seyram Sackitey: My name is Yuri from Ghana. I mean, it's kind of nice.

01:49:54.510 --> 01:49:55.740
Desire Seyram Sackitey: All right, I'll be sharing on

01:49:57.300 --> 01:49:57.870
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Travel

01:50:06.060 --> 01:50:06.450
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Okay.

01:50:08.370 --> 01:50:09.690
Eli van der Giessen: Perfect. Just a screen share on

01:50:10.440 --> 01:50:10.890

01:50:13.020 --> 01:50:16.590
Eli van der Giessen: Oh, you've come in and out. Yeah. You may not have that power. My apologies. Let me

01:50:18.390 --> 01:50:19.530
Eli van der Giessen: Get you into there.

01:50:22.650 --> 01:50:24.000
Eli van der Giessen: But you should have that ability.

01:50:25.200 --> 01:50:25.890
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Buttons.

01:50:27.060 --> 01:50:29.850
Desire Seyram Sackitey: But the game was working this person said, Are you are you. Oh, good.

01:50:31.650 --> 01:50:33.720
Eli van der Giessen: Sorry, just to be clear, I don't have your screen share. Yeah.

01:50:34.740 --> 01:50:40.320
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Yeah. Capers to go to the next person. So I resolved, I can share my screen. Okay. When I rejoined.

01:50:41.730 --> 01:50:44.010
Eli van der Giessen: Hmm, let's, uh,

01:50:45.300 --> 01:50:46.710
Eli van der Giessen: Let's try and figure that out.

01:50:47.730 --> 01:50:57.600
Eli van der Giessen: Because I'm not quite sure. To fix that, um, let's uh let's skip the order Sandra. If you want to jump in. Next, and then we'll see if we can figure out Deseret and bring him back at yeah

01:50:59.280 --> 01:51:00.840
Sure. Sounds good. Can you hear me.

01:51:02.580 --> 01:51:04.380
Sandra Eamor: Yes, you can hear me okay

01:51:05.580 --> 01:51:18.330
Sandra Eamor: I don't see my video but I'm assuming I'm on. Okay. All right. And so let me share my screen. I am Sandra from Toronto and that squared organizer here.

01:51:20.460 --> 01:51:30.960
Sandra Eamor: My. Here we go. I'll be sharing with you diagrams.net. So my background is in business analysis and project management and in my work I do a lot of

01:51:31.770 --> 01:51:45.480
Sandra Eamor: Process mapping and this diagrams.net tool is a free option to be able to use to document processes and it comes with a whole bunch of templates that are really great

01:51:45.990 --> 01:51:57.720
Sandra Eamor: And you can use them for a whole variety of different things. It integrates with Google with one drive and you can also use it directly on your desktop. So it's

01:51:59.100 --> 01:52:01.920
Sandra Eamor: It's a great tool that I use all the time.

01:52:03.240 --> 01:52:05.490
Sandra Eamor: So I'll take you through the

01:52:07.980 --> 01:52:15.360
Sandra Eamor: Loading and you have the option of where you want to save your diagrams to I tend to always keep mine in the cloud.

01:52:19.890 --> 01:52:20.370
Sandra Eamor: Earlier.

01:52:30.390 --> 01:52:46.980
Sandra Eamor: And once you have it integrated with your Google. You're also able to insert diagrams directly into your Google Docs or spreadsheets and when you access them through that document, it'll

01:52:48.150 --> 01:52:57.840
Sandra Eamor: Use diagrams meant to edit them, but it'll stay embedded within your document, which is a feature I really like. And so these are a whole bunch of the different templates that you can work with.

01:52:59.010 --> 01:53:13.530
Sandra Eamor: You know, from the cherry perspective, I can see them the org chart one obviously being one that would probably be used. That would be really great, as well as the flow chart and some lane diagrams. I'm not going to get into the theory behind designing all these

01:53:14.550 --> 01:53:20.460
Sandra Eamor: I'm just going to quickly show you a few of the different options. There's also some graphical ones that are really nice.

01:53:22.560 --> 01:53:23.010
Sandra Eamor: Chart.

01:53:24.690 --> 01:53:34.890
Sandra Eamor: Cloud based diagrams know how well you can see all that engineering, there's more flow charts, different types of flow charts.

01:53:36.570 --> 01:53:41.160
Sandra Eamor: Different layouts. So like wire frames. If you're building your website.

01:53:42.780 --> 01:53:43.740
Sandra Eamor: Mind Maps.

01:53:45.270 --> 01:53:59.100
Sandra Eamor: Network diagrams and comes with all the nice little icons other graphical representations. There's also a floor plan ones which are neat if you're working on any redecorating or office space.

01:54:00.270 --> 01:54:04.680
Sandra Eamor: Other software diagrams, getting the end. These are getting a little bit more technical here.

01:54:06.450 --> 01:54:10.830
Sandra Eamor: So I'll just open a basic ones for now just to show you the inside

01:54:18.840 --> 01:54:19.560
Sandra Eamor: And

01:54:20.790 --> 01:54:30.690
Sandra Eamor: You can. One of the neat things about this is you can also change the theme I won't do it now because it takes a little bit of time to switch and you have to refresh, but you can change the way this whole

01:54:31.380 --> 01:54:40.830
Sandra Eamor: Canvas is laid out. So if you prefer more minimalist approach without seeing all the buttons everywhere. You can change how we work with your canvas, which is

01:54:41.910 --> 01:54:58.980
Sandra Eamor: Great to have all those options. One of the things I like about this is it's really easy to add boxes by just using these arrows to keep going, which really saves you a lot of time when you're building out some more detailed process diagrams.

01:55:01.530 --> 01:55:09.210
Sandra Eamor: To show you because I know I don't have too much time. You can also export all these diagrams as

01:55:11.190 --> 01:55:22.650
Sandra Eamor: Well, excellent. So there's a lots of different options you have for export. And you can also embed them, like I mentioned in your in your documents.

01:55:26.670 --> 01:55:28.170
Sandra Eamor: dragging it all of your

01:55:30.450 --> 01:55:35.730
Sandra Eamor: icons that you would need to work with or over here on the last they're easy drag and drop

01:55:36.930 --> 01:55:39.570
Sandra Eamor: You double click and you enter in your text.

01:55:40.650 --> 01:55:45.300
Sandra Eamor: If anyone's ever used Vizio it's it's very similar, but being cloud based

01:55:46.560 --> 01:55:54.300
Sandra Eamor: Really easy to use. And for me the best features being able to embed it into other documents.

01:55:56.190 --> 01:56:11.820
Sandra Eamor: You also have the Arrange feature which is similar to other applications. If you've used them where you can select you know if the these are misaligned. You can select them and you can arrange them so that you align them back to the last which makes everything look pretty.

01:56:16.050 --> 01:56:25.440
Sandra Eamor: I guess I did it in less than five minutes for the, the really, really super quick demo version you're unstoppable. Well, thank you so much. That looks really great

01:56:26.130 --> 01:56:32.400
Eli van der Giessen: I think that alignment thing is going to save me a lot of grief and tears, but I start playing with this. Oh yeah, there's

01:56:32.430 --> 01:56:37.740
Sandra Eamor: There's a lot of aligning and it's like there's a lot of features there that make it really nice.

01:56:38.610 --> 01:56:43.050
Eli van der Giessen: Fabulous. Well, thank you so much. Sandra. Now we're going to move on to the final demo.

01:56:43.290 --> 01:56:46.650
Eli van der Giessen: Of the day we're back to desert. And I think we've worked out the kinks.

01:56:46.770 --> 01:56:47.040
Sandra Eamor: And

01:56:47.340 --> 01:56:48.480
Eli van der Giessen: The bugs in the system.

01:56:48.750 --> 01:56:50.670
Eli van der Giessen: To desert take yourself off mute and off you go.

01:57:03.360 --> 01:57:03.690
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Hello.

01:57:04.590 --> 01:57:11.310
Desire Seyram Sackitey: You're good, okay. My name is Sherry, and I'm from Ghana and I'm the minister organized of Accra. All right, I'll be sharing on travel

01:57:11.940 --> 01:57:24.000
Desire Seyram Sackitey: And travel is a collaboration tool so on and also productivity, too. So it allows us to share and keep yourself on track. So it's kind of monitors for you doing and

01:57:24.570 --> 01:57:44.610
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Help you focus on what you're doing. So let me get in. Right, I'll go on with the pricing before going to watch you. Okay, so, um, steroids free for everyone in the US, then we have a business class and enterprise class for the free version can do a lot of things on he can do it, have

01:57:46.080 --> 01:57:54.000
Desire Seyram Sackitey: You gotta love notes, create a lot of content on it. So the next thing I'll be I'll just do a quick demo and walk through

01:57:57.780 --> 01:58:07.830
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Alright, so when you have an account. Whenever I concentrate. Oh, you could create boards so video for weeks and you have an organization and because of the

01:58:08.790 --> 01:58:18.720
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Pandemic or outreach to your volunteers responses and you're done is so you can use credit as a communication tool between them to keep your civil truck. So

01:58:20.160 --> 01:58:24.090
Desire Seyram Sackitey: For instance, I created his vote for this.

01:58:25.530 --> 01:58:30.180
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Webinar. So by a it's sort of an online or remote way.

01:58:31.590 --> 01:58:37.950
Desire Seyram Sackitey: To too much weight on board. So first, you can add a border your soul so

01:58:41.280 --> 01:58:54.870
Desire Seyram Sackitey: So you can add a word from this race you create a more creative team so you can we have a we have a way to add them as a team on a board so it works in cars. So everybody has occurred. So I've created is what are you going to time so

01:58:55.290 --> 01:59:07.020
Desire Seyram Sackitey: You can take to the board based on listen. So we have the team for the K project you're working on as a non profit they will use your completed. Once you're done with the projects, you can just drag it onto the computer.

01:59:07.530 --> 01:59:16.230
Desire Seyram Sackitey: List. Anybody can switch to something coming from different projects and what you're doing. You can add something I'm doing at the moment. So I'll just type something up.

01:59:21.540 --> 01:59:24.330
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Okay, so our next meetup Enos, great.

01:59:25.500 --> 01:59:38.070
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Afternoon event, I can just add it to them. So that's how the waist. So it helps you keep focus on what you're doing and not many. Too much time any of us any hopes in the remote environments so on.

01:59:39.060 --> 01:59:48.870
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Okay, there's a pricing for nonprofits. So nonprofits out 75% discount. Um, I think I should add language Eli, so

01:59:49.740 --> 02:00:01.290
Desire Seyram Sackitey: So as a non profit you have 75% discount for does verify nonprofit does register within a state or in the country to your setup isn't perfect on the pricing policies which I showed earlier on.

02:00:02.520 --> 02:00:11.880
Desire Seyram Sackitey: So, which is the business class and enterprise class so you can get as a non profit targets. So you're paying six 5% less or 9.9 $9 that's almost nothing.

02:00:13.650 --> 02:00:33.030
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Yeah, so, and it's another lesson only share is you can use it with other tools like because then pops so many weddings even knows all your work with your Gmail, we you can link them to all the projects you're working with. So let's just add a power.

02:00:36.840 --> 02:00:37.320

02:00:40.320 --> 02:00:41.490
Desire Seyram Sackitey: So this is co ops.

02:00:49.620 --> 02:00:59.610
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Okay, so we have it based on what you're doing, for instance, your analysis reporting, we are at sage, then it's to project management.

02:01:01.020 --> 02:01:08.520
Desire Seyram Sackitey: So the yellow. You can use link them to the current projects or we can wait for instance, personally, our weapon Bitbucket and then

02:01:09.870 --> 02:01:16.620
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Through slack. So you can integrate your slack contents. Yes, you can just add content from slack own to

02:01:17.850 --> 02:01:19.830
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Travel 11 is you have

02:01:21.900 --> 02:01:22.710
Eli van der Giessen: One minute.

02:01:23.100 --> 02:01:27.210
Desire Seyram Sackitey: One minute. Okay, so another maybe you're working with your emails.

02:01:28.380 --> 02:01:41.070
Desire Seyram Sackitey: You're working with emotional suffering. So we can say Mills from your trailer up from your training up to your music or articles from Milton and backwards. So for instance, I want to add an email. I want to advocate for my email so

02:01:47.190 --> 02:01:51.570
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Okay, I think I will share the point that countries. I think I'm ready.

02:01:55.290 --> 02:01:55.710
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Okay, I gotta

02:01:57.840 --> 02:01:58.350
Eli van der Giessen: Go for it.

02:01:59.220 --> 02:01:59.610

02:02:07.980 --> 02:02:08.460

02:02:14.760 --> 02:02:21.480
Desire Seyram Sackitey: So, okay, how can we can change the burden on what you're doing, or they can. That's when you have the

02:02:22.770 --> 02:02:30.060
Desire Seyram Sackitey: The Enterprise or the business class, you can make a lot of customization. So for nonprofits young several advantages.

02:02:33.870 --> 02:02:34.530

02:02:36.600 --> 02:02:51.150
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Alright so this one I normally use I use the conference cloud. We have linked my board so you can for the free version. Got a maximum of two parks baby you own a business class, you can add as many products as you want. Does if you are nonprofits and you apply for the

02:02:52.230 --> 02:03:04.170
Desire Seyram Sackitey: Nonprofit subscription, you can have unlimited props to add a little application. Shall we can wait. You just have to send them an email with and verify your nonprofits and then you're good to go. Right. Thank you.

02:03:07.140 --> 02:03:21.000
Eli van der Giessen: Lovely, thank you so much. Um, so with that, we come to an end. I'm delighted to have everyone join us for this event today. I think we had over 100 people at the peak.

02:03:21.690 --> 02:03:29.760
Eli van der Giessen: Let me just leave you with final call to action. So if you haven't yet discovered tech soup. Go to texas.org

02:03:30.120 --> 02:03:39.660
Eli van der Giessen: And of course, if you're not in the US, you'd go to tech soup dot global and there you create your free account as a nonprofit to start getting access to a lot of these discounts. We talked about today.
