According to emails from Blackbaud, the much anticipated release of The Raiser’s Edge Version 7.94 has been delayed until Sunday, February 8 (I’m assuming for non-hosted clients it will be available on that Monday.) Blackbaud cited “findings in additional regression testing and customer feedback requesting additional time to prepare” as the reason for the delayed release.

Anticipated changes with this update include:

  • Moving Phones/Emails/Social Media information off of the Address Record onto the Constituent Record
  • Additional options to mark phones, etc. as Primary or Inactive
  • No longer relying on the Microsoft Office Web Application technology to generate Dashboard Panels and Pivot reports

I will be posting here extensively over the next few weeks about what these changes mean to your organization. As always, I welcome your feedback and questions. If you are hosted, please stop back by and share your experience with us!

Keeping you on the Leading Edge,
