2 Non-Profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2 Introduction Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online combines everyday Microsoft Office applications with powerful customer relationship management (CRM) software accessed over the Internet to rapidly improve relationships with donors, volunteers and clients. Microsoft Community Affairs has worked with the Dynamics Product team to create an NGO accelerator that turns a powerful sales and marketing tool into a robust CRM tailored to nonprofit needs. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online provides a powerful yet easy-to-use CRM solution delivered over the Internet, so that organizations can get up and running quickly and cost-effectively with the flexibility to meet the unique needs of any business. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online equips nonprofit professionals with access to constituent information through a full suite of marketing, sales, and customer service capabilities with a familiar Microsoft Office Outlook experience to help ensure rapid user adoption and fast results. Microsoft Community Affairs and the Dynamics CRM product team have developed the Non-profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM as a starting point for non-profit organizations. The accelerator has modified the corporate version of CRM to include objects such as Donations and relationships to Members. The Solution can be modified to suit most nonprofit business needs through customization. Examples of additional functionality include client and service data management, case management, group activity scheduling, volunteer management and more. Overview Default Objects Default objects are those that appear in the navigation pane on the left side of the screen. They always appear but may be disabled by your administrator, or may be unavailable based upon role security settings. If an object is disabled, it usually means that there is another place to perform that action such as tabs in a constituent record.
3 Non-Profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3 Screen Elements Navigation Pane The left area of the screen providing access to the different groupings of functionality (i.e. Relationships, Donations, Campaigns) and their sub-menus (i.e. Activities, Prospects, Members etc. for Relationships) Navigation Ribbon The ribbon at the top of the screen allowing a user to create a new activity, create a new record, navigate to groups of functionality and their sub-menus, or perform an Advanced Find query. Primary Working Pane The area of the screen within which the user will view content Tool Ribbon The ribbon above a view or on individual screens with buttons (or tools) to perform specific functions (i.e. copy, save, new) Search Ribbon The ribbon above a view allowing a user to search the view for specific records using predefined filter criteria Context Default View The default view that is displayed when a user navigates to a specific type of content (i.e. Constituents, Members, Activities, etc.) Navigation Ribbon Primary Working Pane Search Ribbon Navigation Pane Tool Ribbon Context Default View Required and Recommended Fields Business Required fields are marked with a * symbol and are required by Dynamics CRM in order to save the data in any form. Business-Recommended fields are marked with a + symbol and should also be completed. The more data you collect and enter into any form, the more information you will have available in the future for reporting or communicating with a constituent, donor, or volunteer.
4 Non-Profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4 Contact Management Constituents Constituents are individuals or contacts that you want to track and communicate with. Constituents can have the following attributes: Addresses Relationships Activities Sub-Contacts Memberships Benefits Pledges Donations How to create a constituent: 1. Log into your instance 2. From the Relationships group in the Navigation Pane, select the Constituents sub-tab and the following will be displayed: 3. Click the New button.
5 Non-Profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 5 4. Fill in the Constituent (Individual) Last Name (this is the only required field) and any additional fields that you have the data to complete. 5. Save the record. NOTE: Only after saving will the detailed information be available You have several options to choose from when you save a record: Save saves the information and leaves the current record open for additional editing Save and Close saves the information and closes the record Save and New saves the information and opens a new record of the same type (member, constituent, prospect, donor, etc.) Using the relationships tab at the top vs. using the Current Employer field in Details vs. using the Parent Record field in General vs. using the Relationships details on the left. Relationships can be attached to donations and include aggregate donation amounts (lifetime, YTD, etc.). A single member can have relationships with many constituents and a single constituent can have relationships with many members.. Creating relationships requires planning and training before creation in order to produce accurate reports. The current employer field under Details can be useful for reference purpose. However, updating this field does not update the member record in any way (it is not possible to view all employees of a member from the member record). This field can be used in reporting. The Parent Record field is the basic Dynamics CRM functionality. This allows a single member to be linked to many constituents. Updating the Parent Record field in the constituent will update the Constituents list in the member organization. Although this kind of link cannot be connected to a donation, it is far easier to report on than the Relationships tab.
6 Non-Profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 6 The relationships detail to the left has likely been disabled by your Dynamics CRM administrator. This functionality has been replaced with the Relationships tab at the top in the Non-profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. This element can be easily enabled by your Dynamics CRM administrator. Members Members are not the same as constituents. Members represent a higher level entity which would equate to a company or a household in another CRM. Uses of Members: Use Members when you want to a company or household to subscribe to your organization, pay dues, renew, and receive some benefit such as newsletter or invitation to events. Using Members provides you with the ability to group constituents by organization or household in reports, identify a primary constituent for an organization or household, and to provide aggregate reporting. Members may have the following attributes: Addresses Relationships Activities Sub-Companies Memberships Benefits Pledges Donations How to create a member: 1. Log into your Microsoft Dynamics CRM with Nonprofit Accelerator instance
7 Non-Profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 7 2. From the Relationships group in the Navigation Pane, select the Members sub-tab and the following will be displayed: 3. Click the New button. 4. Fill in the Member (Organization) Name (required field) and Classification (required field) and any additional fields that you have the data to complete. 5. Save the record. Only after saving will the detailed information be available The Primary Constituent allows you to specify a primary contact for that organization. Excellent for reporting (ex: print a list of all organizations and the primary contact s phone number) Using the relationships tab at the top vs. the Constituents detail on the left vs. relationships detail at the left:
8 Non-Profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 8 The Relationships tab can be used to attach donations to a member/constituent. Aggregate donation amounts (lifetime, YTD, etc.) can be viewed here. A single member can have relationships with many constituents and a single constituent can have relationships with many members. Creating relationships requires planning and training before creation in order to produce accurate reports. Constituents detail is the basic Dynamics CRM functionality. This allows a single member to be linked to many constituents. Adding a constituent to a member updates the Parent Record field of the Constituent. Although this kind of link cannot be connected to a donation, it is far easier to report on than the Relationships tab. The relationships detail to the left has likely been disabled by your Dynamics administrator. This functionality has been replaced with the Relationships tab at the top in the Non-profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Prospects A prospect represents an initial contact with your organization that could eventually become a member, constituent, or opportunity. It allows you to record basic information before determining the type of record(s) it will become. Other uses of prospects: Capture inquiries from anonymous contacts Capture inquiries to a general information line and assign it to staff to follow up on How to create a Prospect: 1. Select Prospects from the Relationships tab. 2. Click the New button. 3. Enter a descriptive topic and a last name (required fields) and any additional fields that
9 Non-Profit Solution for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 9 you have the data to complete. Field Level Notes: Topic This information should reflect what the prospect is interested in. For example, if a potential donor calls and asks for details on an upcoming event, list the name of the event here. There are a number of options when saving records: Save saves the information and leaves the current record open for additional editing Save and Close saves the information and closes the record Save and New saves the information and opens a new record of the same type (member, constituent, prospect, donor, etc.) How to convert a prospect to a member, constituent, or opportunity: 1. From the prospect click Convert Lead. 2. Select one or more final record types. 3. For opportunities select the potential customer through the lookup OR disqualify the prospect for any reason.

There are two relationships recorded for the constituent, one for each member. You wish to know which address to use for each relationship. When to use an address vs. address fields on record (additional addresses are good for looking up a specific record, but are difficult to pull in a report for multiple address lists). The basic address fields should always be filled in when available for reporting purposes. Relationships are a link between: 2 members OR 2 constituents OR A member and a constituent Relationships can be used to track donations gathered through a relationship Example: Sam makes two donations, one for $10 by himself, and another for $20 that was

The $10 donation would be recorded as a donation directly from Sam, while the $20 would be linked to both Sam and Sam s relationship record with his organization.
