There's a lot of good news in Funraise's August product release notes—our product and engineering teams are on a roll! Updates this month are well-timed as they'll save your team time and increase donation revenue during this end-of-year giving season.
Thanks to everyone who has submitted feedback at Funraise's Product Roadmap; several updates this month represent some of the most requested improvements.
New this month
Create & Edit fundraiser pages in platform
Promoted to beta this month, this enhancement enables you to create individual or team fundraiser pages and edit the details of any existing peer-to-peer pages from the backend of the platform. At this time, beta participants can edit page details, but team membership is not yet editable in the platform. Stay tuned. 😉
QR Codes for Sites and Forms
Promoted to beta this month, QR Codes can now be generated for Campaign Sites. We didn't think we'd be here either, but QR Codes have become integrated into our daily lives—for good reason—because they have introduced more efficient brand experiences.
Send the payment method update email manually
Released to all organizations, the subscription payment method update email can now be sent to a Supporter at any time with a new action menu on the Subscription profile. This email enables supporters to update their payment method for a recurring subscription.
Improved mobile donation experience for placed forms
Released to all organizations. When a Giving Form is embedded as a placed form (an open form placed into your page layout), we'll update the placed form to a launch button when the page is viewed from mobile devices. A popup donation form provides the best donor experience on a mobile device and this update will automatically provide the donor with the best donation experience based on their device.
More data added to Fundraising Intelligence
Released to all organizations with access to Fundraising Intelligence. In our effort to provide the most powerful fundraising reporting tool, we've added a significant amount of new data fields to Fundraising Intelligence. Here's what's new:
Team Owner Name
Team Owner Email
Team Owner Phone
Import External Id
Soft Credit Supporter Id
Soft Credit Supporter First Name
Soft Credit Supporter Last Name

Reminder—Sunset of PayPal Here card reader
For organizations using Funraise's app to collect in-person payments, we'll be ending support for the PayPal Here card reader on September 30, 2022, in favor of Stripe's M2 card reader. Learn more about purchasing and connecting a Stripe card reader.
Reminder—Apple Pay and recurring payments
Due to credit card network (e.g. VISA/MasterCard) changes that were contributing to an increase in failed payments for recurring Apple Pay payments, we've turned off the ability for donors to create new recurring donations with Apple Pay. Existing recurring donations using Apple Pay have not been changed. Our team is monitoring this change with the hopes of soon reactivating recurring functionality for Apple Pay.
