Facebook Field?

Postby RandallY » Mon Jan 30, 2017 8:58 pm

I just upgraded to Donor6 after a couple of years ignoring it and I see there is a new field under Email in the Partner Information titled "Facebook"

I obviously know WHAT this is for, but I could not find anything explaining exactly what I need to put in there. Their Facebook profile URL? Their Name? (not always very unique). Is this just here for future purposes?

Thanks for all the hard work you put into this John!

Thanks for the kind words, and welcome to DM 6.

The Facebook field is indeed fully functional. Here, you just put the person's Facebook user name.

For example, my FB user name is john.muehleisen

You can easily find someone's user name by navigating to their FB page, and it appears right after https://facebook.com/ ... So, for example, my FB page is http://facebook.com/john.muehleisen

Just grab that last part of the URL and drop that in.

Now, on the upper part of the partner detail screen there is room for a single FB profile name.

But, in the lower half of the screen, look for the tab titled "E-Mail / Social."

You can put as many FB profile names as you want there (as well as email addresses, web site addresses, and even Twitter handles.

This gives a lot of flexibility for using DM to help communication via social media.

And be sure to send me your ideas and suggestions for improving DM. I find that the best ideas often come from the freshest eyes.

And since the Forum software doesn't always seem to notify me of new topics here (I'm sure I'm missing some configuration item here), email might be best: john@donormanager.com.
