Through the Event dashboard, you can track upcoming events and locations, outstanding pledges, source codes, fundraising goals, invitee lists, and payment options. You can also create briefings for candidates or speakers and use the check-in feature to simplify the arrival and registration process at events.

Utilize Powerful Searches & Reports

For many users, Search is the core function of the Crimson platform. The new version not only adds additional search fields but also expands the flexibility and customization of query options. Each section contains its own detailed search option where you can adjust filters, output information and export preferences. Crimson automatically saves the last few searches and gives you the option of saving a search for regular queries that you need to run.

Each dashboard also contains a Quick Search feature to quickly find relevant information for data entry, events, money, accounting, bundlers and people profiles.
