The Houston Zoo recently partnered with the Wildlife Conservation Network to host the Saving Wildlife Expo, an all-day conservation event at the Zoo. To support the Saving Wildlife Expo, the Zoo needed a solution for:
Online registration with different prices for Houston Zoo members and nonmembers
Asking for donations during registration to support one of the five endangered animal species discussed at the event
With Sales Station, admission-based nonprofits including zoos, museums, science centers,
nature centers and botanical gardens can sell tickets, update registrations and collect new
and outstanding payments anywhere.
We are pleased to release three new reports to help streamline summer camp management for group signup programs including scout camps:
All Session Events – Roster. For each session event/merit badge class in the selected session, this report displays the name of each registrant and information about their group.
All Session Events – Roster with Completion Requirements. For each session event/merit badge class in the selected session, this report displays the name of each registrant, group information and the course completion requirements assigned to the session event/merit badge class.
All Session Events By Group. This report displays each registrant’s session event/merit badge class schedule, organized by group/unit.
To display and print these reports, follow these steps in Event Management:
In the Programs tab, click the program you’re working with. The Manage a Program page will be displayed.
At the bottom of the panel, click the session for the reports you want to view. The Manage a Program Session page will be displayed.
On the left, click Reports. The Program Session Reports page for the session will be displayed. The reports are located in the Attendance section.
Click the report that contains the information you want to view. The report will be displayed.
To create a printable PDF that contains a single page for each session event/merit badge class, click the printer icon at the top of the report and select HTML-Powered PDF.

Despite the gray areas about how the law pertains to nonprofits, one thing is clear: nonprofits are challenged more than ever to reduce the amount of time-consuming administrative tasks so staff can focus on developing and delivering the core elements of your mission.
Doubleknot can help. Doubleknot integrates the administrative and customer-facing functions of ticketing and admissions, registration, reservations, memberships and fundraising into a single system that supports:
Call-in customers and other back-office purchases
Retail sales, ticketing and admissions
Mobile sales and payments for everything you offer
Doubleknot stores all your information in a single unified database for analytics and reporting, and provides dozens of built-in standard reports as well as a full-featured custom report writer. As a result, it’s easy to share information among departments and generate reports that link previously-unconnected data (like whether families who register for camp also respond to donation appeals.)
Nonprofits that rely on Doubleknot spend less time manually managing administrative and information tasks and more time on what really matters: delivering your mission.
Call us at (408) 971-9120 x203 or write Doubleknot@doubleknot.com to learn how Doubleknot can help reduce the time your staff spends on administrative tasks.
When staff or volunteers who have Doubleknot administrator privileges leave your organization, remember to downgrade the permissions for their Doubleknot account.
In many nonprofit organizations, staff and volunteers remain affiliated with the organization after their employment or volunteer service ends. For example, a zoo or museum employee may still be a member or register for camps and events after their employment ends. And, in scouting organizations, exiting staff, leaders and volunteers and their families may continue to participate in activities.
In cases like these, you may choose to maintain the account (and its associated registrations, reservations, memberships, etc.) and simply remove their administrator privileges in your organization. So, when personnel leave, remember to:
Remove the account’s administrator permissions,
Remove the account from administrative groups
Unsubscribe the account from administrative mailing lists
