It's been shown that keeping track of your donor progress helps you INCREASE your donations. To get a handle on your progress, we've created several dashboard reports and graphs that help you keep track of new donors, renewing donors, and recovering lapsed donors. Perhaps most importantly, the Key Numbers report gives you an overall view of your work.
See the attached for instructions on setting them. If you need more instruction on reports in general, go to the Reports section to the basic instructions for creating reports.
