Engaging Donors Through Stories
The Stories Module provides the ability to create new dynamic pages in Constituent Connection to capture and communicate a wide range of topics for you and your donors.
Stories allow your online community members to share their ideas, memories, and photos similar to the way you might post a comment on a blog. It gives you a way to allow your members to generate their own content while simultaneously giving you the ability to monitor and, if needed, remove that content. How you choose to use it is up to you!
Stories are flexible, so you can allow users to make postings themselves, allow users to comment on existing postings, and search, review and history a story. Stories posted by your online community members will also include options for user consent to publish the story in your organization's other publications.
