QuickBooks Online

You can now enable a one-way sync from QuickBooks Online to Bloomerang. When you set up this integration:

  • Bloomerang actively monitors QuickBooks Online accounts that you select for new or changed sales receipts.
  • If a single-line sales receipt matches a rule that you configure, the sales receipt automatically syncs to Bloomerang as a donation.
  • Bloomerang creates a new constituent for synced donations unless a constituent already exists.
  • You can pause and resume syncs.
  • QuickBooks remains the system of record (the authoritative source of data), which means you can edit synced donations only in QuickBooks Online.
  • Click a link in synced Bloomerang donations to quickly view or edit the sales receipt in QuickBooks Online. You must be logged in to QuickBooks Online.
  • Bloomerang now supports two one-way QuickBooks Online integrations: QuickBooks Online to Bloomerang and Bloomerang to QuickBooks Online. You can enable either or both integrations, which work separately but in harmony to maintain the system of record.

Bloomerang Volunteer has the following updates.

Google and Yahoo require bulk senders to follow new requirements meant to increase email security and reduce spam. To use a From Sender address from your organization’s domain, you must now authenticate the domain.

In Bloomerang Volunteer, you can now manage the domain authentication process yourself. On the new Email Communications > Authenticate Domains page:

  • Download a DKIM key, which you must add to your domain account settings outside of Bloomerang Volunteer.
  • Monitor the domain authentication status. When the status is Authenticated, you can verify and use a From Sender email address from that domain.

On the Email Communications tab, the Verify Addresses page is now named Manage Senders. On this page, verified email addresses now have one of these new statuses:

  • Fully Verified — Email addresses from authenticated domains
  • Partially Verified — Email addresses from a mailbox provider (Google, Yahoo, or others), email addresses from unauthenticated domains, or email addresses from authenticated domains if you haven’t yet clicked the email verification link

In Bloomerang Volunteer email templates:

  • From Sender must now be a Fully Verified email address.
  • Reply-To can be a Partially Verified or Fully Verified email address.
  • You can now select a Reply-To address different from the From Sender address.
  • From Sender now changes automatically to [email protected] in these cases:
    • The From Sender address is from an authenticated domain, and you remove that domain.
    • The From Sender address has the status Partially Verified.
    • The From Sender address has the status Fully Verified, and you remove that address from Bloomerang Volunteer.
    • In the first two cases, the Reply-To address changes automatically to the Partially Verified email address. For example, if your organization uses a @gmail address as the From Sender address, that address is now the Reply-To address.

    • Email bounce lists now include information about people who met the send criteria but were unsubscribed and thus were not sent the communication.
    • When sending an email to a specific person or to an email list, if anyone in the recipient list has unsubscribed from email communications, you’ll receive a prompt that lists which email addresses won’t be sent the message. You can then choose to contact them via a different method.

        • Fixed a bug with resetting Google reCAPTCHA on online donation forms. Donors
          sometimes make mistakes when submitting online donation forms. Bloomerang
          displays error messages to help them to understand what went wrong (example:
          credit card declined). When donors attempted to make corrections and
          resubmit forms, they couldn’t because reCAPTCHA wasn’t resetting properly.

          successfully.
