         * First-class fields: Please provide aliases (id, amount, campaign, date, email, phone, first, last) in order to import items as first-class fields (e.g.   F  ->  G  )
                                         (360MatchPro will attempt to differentiate first-class fields from custom fields, but accurate partition can be guaranteed only through aliasing.)
         * Custom Fields: Anything that isn't a first-class field will be imported into 360MatchPro as a custom field
* Include any filter conditions (H below for example) if there are any types of records you would not like to import into 360MatchPro. Include the Date is on or after last month filter (I) to restrict the results to only recent donations.

Step-by-Step: Integrate Double the Donation's 360MatchPro into Blackbaud CRM for Locally Hosted (on-prem) Users

This integration guide contains two sections: the first section allows you to create an ad-hoc query, and the second section allows you to run the program. You must complete these steps in order, or the integration will not work correctly.

Section 1: Create a smart ad-hoc query to specify the types of gifts you'd like to import into 360MatchPro.

 
Step #1: In your Blackbaud CRM Web portal, select Analysis, then Information library.
 
 
Step #2: Select Add an ad-hoc query.
 
 
Step #3: Select the Revenue record type, then select Revenue in the source view column. Click OK.
 
 
Step #4 - Select filter and output fields ( A)
* Add the "Date Changed" system field ( B -> C -> D -> E)
* Add any field you'd like to the query.  Fields will be partitioned into 360MatchPro first-class donation fields and custom fields.
         * First-class fields: Please provide aliases (id, amount, campaign, date, email, phone, first, last) in order to import items as first-class fields (e.g.  F -> G)
                                         (360MatchPro will attempt to differentiate first-class fields from custom fields, but accurate partition can be guaranteed only through aliasing.)
         * Custom Fields: Anything that isn't a first-class field will be imported into 360MatchPro as a custom field
* Include any filter conditions (below for example) if there are any types of records you would not like to import into 360MatchPro. Include the Date is on or after last month filter (I) to restrict the results to only recent donations.

Step #5: In Set sort and group options, select Date changed ( A-> B).  Select the sort ascending button ( C).
 
 
Step #6: Preview the results to make sure those are the type of records that you would like to import into 360MatchPro
 
 
Step #7: Select Suppress duplicate rows ( A). Click Save ( B ), then Create smart query ( C ).
 
 
Step #8: Configure the Smart Query:
* On the Date changed row, select the filter checkbox.  In the Filter operator, select After. (A)
* In the Primary key field drop-down, select Date changed. ( B)
* As the Record type, select Revenue. ( C)
* For the Smart query name, enter "360MatchPro" ( D)
 
 

If you would like to make changes to the ‘360MatchPro’ smart query, you will first need to delete the current 360MatchPro smart query. Next, your team will adjust the ad-hoc query to reflect the updates. Once the changes are made, you will need to repeat the steps in Step #8: Configure the Smart Query: to save the updated ‘360MatchPro’ smart query. These steps must be taken to ensure the data imported in 360MatchPro reflects the changes made to your ad-hoc query. 

Section 2: Run the program to pull donation records into 360MatchPro

Step #1: Obtain the program and source code here.

The program executes the 360MatchPro Smart Query and pipes the donation records to 360MatchPro via its REST API. 

 
Step #2: Run doublethedonation.exe as a periodic daemon process on your system. 
 
You're all set! Donation records from BBCRM will now flow seamlessly to 360MatchPro.
