Web Seminar - Easy Blackbaud TeamRaiser® Event Creation For 2018

Creating your next TeamRaiser event doesn't have to be a painful experience. If you hosted an event the previous year, it should be as simple as uploading some new images, updating some text and making a copy of your previous TeamRaiser event.

On January 31, 2018 I presented a webinar on doing this process in one of Blackbaud's "30 Minute Tips & Timesavers" webinar series. You can see the recording here ==> "Easy Blackbaud TeamRaiser Event Creation for 2018."

It's a quick webinar with a lot packed into only 30 minutes so I have created this blog to provide a point of contact should anyone have questions about the content of the webinar. Please feel free to ask questions using the comments function and I will be sure to respond as quickly as possible. 

Thanks for your interest in our efforts to make Blackbaud solutions work for you!

Hi Alexis, We (HJC New Media) are a certified Blackbaud partner and we work with organizations to build out new event sites and help them rollover over the sites year over year.  We can also provide complete training and documentation on the setup of the site.  If this is something you would like help with us, please reach out.   Thanks, Meghan (meghan.christiansen@hjcnewmedia.com)  
I just wanted to touch base on some challenges my organization is experiencing with Luminate/Team Raiser.  Our first event in TeamRaiser is up and running, and working great may I add!  Our plan, as discussed with a BlackBaud representative, was to duplicate our first event created by the BlackBaud team and edit/modify ourselves to suit our needs for another event we put on.
I’ve went ahead and copied the TeamRaiser page and started to create our new event, however, I’m having trouble editing the navigation, logos, etc. on the page. All event and team options, participations types, autoresponders, etc. have been completed otherwise.   

I connected with a Luminate Support Specialist who told me that anything design related to the page is affected by coding in the page’s page wrapper. She mentioned that for us to change the look of the page, a web designer would need to go in and adjust the coding. We found this news surprising.

We ultimately chose TeamRaiser because we were under the impression that we would be able to create these pages and make these types of changes ourselves. Given that this is not the actuality of this situation, I’m not sure how to proceed. I've looked at TeamRaiser Support webpages and Basic videos, which still did not help. 

I was wondering if you had any insight regarding the design and edditing of our page builder in TeamRaiser for our new event?

Thank you,
