BSD Tools + EveryAction

FAQ

Moving from EA Digital Tools to EveryAction

When are the EA Digital Tools being deprecated?

We'll be announcing formal plans to deprecate the EA Digital Tools and CallOut products shortly, with an end-of-life in 2021. Before then, we’ll be working to migrate all customers to the appropriate EveryAction product.

I’m aware that ActionKit eCRM is part of the EveryAction nonprofit family too! Can I migrate to ActionKit?

Yes! As we’ve announced, ActionKit will remain a complementary product in the EveryAction family. Reach out to us at bsdmigrations@everyaction.com to discuss your migration options.

Is there any cost for a conversion?

No, we are offering comprehensive data conversions for free to EA Digital Tools customers. These conversions will include your constituent data, contact data, one-time and recurring contribution data, custom fields, and constituent group memberships.

What about my QuickDonate data?

As of 2019, QuickDonate and FastAction – EveryAction’s equivalent one-click saved payment information product – have been integrated. That means saved donor information is already avaiable in EveryAction.  

I don’t want to lose my favorite EA Digital Tools features. Will EveryAction be updated to include them?

We’d love to hear more about the EA Digital Tools features you can’t live without. Contact us at  bsdmigrations@everyaction.com. Starting in 2019 and continuing through 2020, NGP VAN has undertaken an extensive process of evaluating the feature gaps between the EA Digital Tools and EveryAction which has resulted in a number of existing and planned improvements to NGP Digital 8’s mass email, API, and data analytics capabilities based directly on your feedback.

Does EveryAction have features that the EA Digital Tools don’t?

Yes. Thousands. For example,

  • Tight integration with the EveryAction and NGP VAN’s development, organizing and compliance software backed by a unified CRM (no integrations required!)
  • Dynamic email address scoring, which uses aggregated behavioral data to improve email deliverability
  • Modern, configurable, reporting and analytics dashboards, and better views of activity at the supporter level
  • And, many, many more including advanced social media matching, direct mail and paid media integrations, survey questions, and SMS.

When can I schedule a conversion?

You can select any date between now and the end of 2020 above and we'll be in touch shortly to confirm details.  While we may not be able to schedule you for that exact date we will work with you to pick a date that works for you.

What if I already have an EveryAction or NGP VAN account?

Many EA Digital Tools clients use NGP for compliance, VAN for organizing, or EveryAction for development. In most cases your EA Digital Tools data will be able to be integrated directly into these databases.  

I have more questions. How do I get in touch?

Please don't hesitate to email us at bsdmigrations@everyaction.com
