The Funraisin Admin

Every Funraisin website supports an admin interface which allows charities to manage and maintain their site.

Each Admin is shared across all sites so the admin itself is not able to be modified for a single site, we do however on occation create custom modules for a single site that allow data entry control beyond the below core modules.

Below is a list of all the standard modules available on any Funraisin powered site. A much more detailed overview of each module can be found within the Modules section.

Admin Modules

Accounts is where you can control admin access for all admin users. There are 2 sub-modules found within accounts which are

User Accounts
This is where you control your main admin user access. Creating an account requires you to assign the user to a usertype (below)

User Types
User types is where you can setup different access levels which can then be assigned to specific accounts. Access can be restricted to certain modules so for example you can create a usertype of Reconciliation and allow access to the payments module.

Languages (optional)
Not enabled by default, this is our multi-lingual module that allows you to control translation settings and add/edit languages.
