Utilizing Form Communications, as well as recurring Deliver mailings, acknowledgements and receipts can sent electronically. Merging in details from the gift, as well as payment details, this method provides an immediate or close-to-immediate method of thanking a donor for their gift.
Filters can be added to a mailings recipient list that restrict the delivery of acknowledgements using this method to donations under a certain amount - or if a donor selects to receive electronic delivery of a gift receipt on the online giving form.
One of the more frequently used methods, a tracking query can be configured to return only new gifts since the last time the query was run.
Once run, the query results can be batch managed and exported to a previously uploaded Mail Merge document (multiple merge documents can be uploaded and stored in Slate). The gift processor can either export and continue to modify the merge document or export and execute the merge immediately.
Leveraging Deliver's multiple print options, recurring letters can be configured to automatically send through the USPS and sent to a donor's mailing address. As in email messages, merge fields can display the appropriate gift and payment information.
