Our engineers have had a singular focus for the last stretch of time: to upgrade Kindful’s foundation to the latest (and greatest) technology.

The nerdy software details tend to get dense. So here’s the Reader’s Digest version: Kindful’s core got upgraded to both speed everything up tremendously, as well as create opportunity for some huge updates down the road.

One of those updates?

Announcing the new and improved: permissions!

Announcing permissions, and giving the people what they need

One of the most important pieces of modern databases is being able to have multiple people access the data. Certainly one person can’t manage tens – if not hundreds – of thousands of contacts in a database alone. You need to have other crew manning the ship with you, right? And though it takes a crew, not everyone is a captain.

The new permissions setting can now admit or restrict a user’s access to various features of Kindful. Everyone doesn’t need access to everything, and now you can control who has access to what. It’s pretty handy!

We’re rolling out this new feature with 4 levels of permissions: Account Owner, Staff, Basic Data Entry, and View Only.

With these new permissions, now you can designate whether someone has full access or restricted access to your donor’s sensitive financial data. No more worrying about someone deleting or changing something they shouldn’t have. Woohoo!

If you’re already using Kindful, the new permissions have already been set for your current users. You’ll notice the improvements make it way simpler to designate who can do what. See how the upgrades may affect what your admins can see and do here.
