Accessing Community Form Data
Community forms are personal fundraising pages that enable anyone to organize their friends and family and fundraise for any campaign or organization that uses ActBlue.
As an admin, you can’t edit community forms that fundraise for your group or view their Statistics pages, but you can see who is raising money on your group’s behalf and access data for contributions made to you through community forms.
To do this, head to the Contribution Forms tab in your Dashboard toolbar. At the top of the page, you’ll notice three tabs: “Managed Forms,” “Community Forms,” and “Supporter Forms.” You can toggle between the three to see a list of your team’s different fundraising forms. Click on the “Community Forms” tab.
In the “Community Forms” tab, you can see all the community forms folks made to fundraise on behalf of your group. You can see the form’s name, the date it was created, the email address of the person who made the community form, the number of contributions made, and the dollars raised on that form.
While admins cannot view the Statistics pages for community forms, you always have access to the contribution data for all forms fundraising for your group, including community forms. First find the date the community form was created on.
Then go to the Downloads tab in your Dashboard toolbar, under “Tools.”
With the “Contributions over a specified time period” report, you can download a custom CSV that will list the data for all of your contributions, including contributions from community forms. To view the contribution data from a particular community form, simply use the date the form was created on for your report’s “Start Date,” and pick the “End Date” you’re interested in (if you want to see all of the data since the form’s creation, use the current date). Then click the gray “CSV” button to download the spreadsheet!
Once you have the CSV for the time period you want, open it and go to the column labeled “Fundraiser Recipient ID” (which is the community form’s name). Sort this column of form names alphabetically so you can easily find the donors who have given to you on a specific community form in your defined time period!
