CiviCRM Workday

Here are the notes from our work day on 2009-06-14.

During this session we installed and did the initial configuration of CiviCRM.

Some of the important decisions we made are:

  • We decided to install CiviCRM using a separate instance of Drupal from for improved security and performance. We noted that we may have difficulty synchronizing user information if we continue this precedent of installing separate drupal instances for different USSF projects.
  • The CiviCRM site is here:
  • We did not complete the configuration - it will be continued this week (date/time not yet determined).
  • We need to have a conversation about GroupsAndTags.
  • We are in the process of getting an https certificate

Micah posted a screen shot of our chat here:

More volunteer work

(reposted from Jaime's email)

I'd like to propose the following ambitious work schedule to get these things ready to go by 6/22:

  • Tuesday June 16, 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    • Sylvia: can help after 3pm NPC conf call

  • Thursday, June 18, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    • Sylvia: can help
  • Sunday, June 21, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    • Sylvia can help

I know this is ambitious - but given the workload and deadline, I think it's what we really need to get in shape for the 22nd.

We need help! Ways you can help are:

  • Volunteer for one of the work slots.
  • Go to and register as a user. Post to the list letting us know what your user name is and we can provide you with access to civicrm so you can start getting familiar with it (we have sample data loaded now).
