Origin Tracking

Beginning July 23, 2016, every time an account is created in NeonCRM, it is stamped it with data indicating exactly from where the account came. This comes in the form of two new account standard fields: Origin Category and Origin Detail. These fields are populated at the time the account is created. It is not possible for a system user to create, edit, or delete the values of these fields. Accounts created prior to July 23, 2016 will not have these fields populated.

  • Origin Category
    This is the broad category of where the account came from. The values include things like Data Entry, Event Registration, Donation Form, or Self-Import.
  • Origin Detail
    More specific information about the origin of the account. Typically, this will be the specific fundraising campaign, event, or system user who created the account.

What can I do with this information?

  • Use these fields as search criteria and output columns in reports:
    • Mailing Report
    • All Accounts Report
    • Email Audience Report
  • Build email audiences using these fields as search criteria
  • Use these fields to better assess duplicate records in the duplicate merge process
  • Use these fields as search criteria in the bulk operations process
  • View these fields on the Account > All Accounts page to track incoming accounts in your database
