Alumni add notes to their class notes page on your website to keep in touch with one another and update classmates on their lives. When alumni add information to a class notes page and it is approved, you are notified on The Raiser's Edge Plug-Ins under Class Note Updates. Class notes are stored on the Notes tab of a constituent record.

For example, an alumnus mentions in his class notes he got a new dog. If you store class note updates, you create a note on the Notes tab of his constituent record. Keeping track of constituent class notes is another way to know your donors better.


Before downloading class notes, you should select download options for class notes in NetCommunity Plug-In Options. Review that section before proceeding with this procedure


    • From The Raiser's Edge, click Plug-Ins, NetCommunity
    • Click Refresh to view the latest information from the Web site
    • Under Class Note Updates, review the processing information.

      For example, if you have a new class note, 1 class note update(s) processed appears. Because class notes are approved in Blackbaud NetCommunity, class note information downloads to The Raiser's Edge automatically. No further action is required to download the class note.
