Once again, we've got great updates coming your way for ImportOmatic! The biggest change you'll see in version 126.96.36.199 is that we've added FindOmatic to ImportOmatic...for free! It installs with ImportOmatic, but you can launch it from anywhere within Raiser's Edge, once you've activated it.
FindOmatic is like dropping a powerful search engine into Raiser's Edge, enabling you to find any record quickly (including those sneaky nonconstituents). Once you install the latest update, head over to Configuration in ImportOmatic to activate FindOmatic. Before changing the default settings, make sure to quickly review FindOmatic's user guide. Though it's pretty straightforward, FindOmatic can be configured to allow for instantaneous promotion of nonconstituent records, so you'll want to review how that works prior to enabling that option.
In addition to adding FindOmatic, we've also added some smart improvements to ImportOmatic:
- Added the ability to update action and recurring gift notepad types via import
- Export profiles can now use skip row dictionaries, rather than requiring your query to filter everything out
- Improved performance
You can review the full list of ImportOmatic improvements below and see details in the Release Notes.
If your organization is using MergeOmatic, please note that you will need to uninstall the standalone version of the MergeOmatic plugin when updating to this latest version of ImportOmatic (which includes MergeOmatic within it). All of your previous settings and history will carry over just fine, but this ensures that there are no conflicts or errors between the standalone MergeOmatic and the version embedded within ImportOmatic. If you have questions about this process, don't hesitate to reach out to our Support team for assistance!
When you're ready to take advantage of these improvements, download the latest version of ImportOmatic from our new downloads page! If you're hosted by Blackbaud, you don't need to take any steps to upgrade--we're working with Blackbaud to get these updates to your database as quickly as possible.
