We’re excited to share our latest round of updates to the SmartSimple platform. The theme this month? Integrations designed to help you connect more easily with your community. Upgrades include new sharing capabilities for calendar invites and to-do lists as well as enhancements to our ORCiD integration. And, coming soon, a new online payment integration with Stripe.
Share Calendars, Contacts and To-Do Lists
Not all organizations or individuals use the same tools to manage their calendars, schedule meetings or keep to-do lists. This can make completing simple tasks, like setting up meetings for review panels, complicated, as not all systems are compatible.
Fortunately, there’s a way to make sure all your contacts know when meetings are and share important information whether they use Outlook, Gmail or Apple Mail.
Known as iCalendar, this universal feature gives you the ability to share meeting requests, vCards (virtual business cards), and to-do lists with your contacts via email.Enhanced ORCID Integration
If you’re an RMS360o client, this improved integration with Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) will be of particular benefit to your research grant applicants.
Now, in addition to the ability to import applicants’ ORCID profiles, researchers can import an array of information from the ORCID database into your SmartSimple system, including:
- Publication Author List
- Publication Title
- Publication ISSN
- Publication Abstract
- Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
- ORCID Publication Identifier
Stripe Integration - Coming Soon
SmartSimple is currently working on a future integration with Stripe.
An industry leader in scalable, secure, flexible online payments, Stripe provides complete security and compliance with two-factor authentication and the highest level of industry certification, PCI Service Provider Level 1. Use Stripe to accept online payments for initiatives such as Employee Giving Programs and charity auctions.
Watch for this feature to officially launch in the coming months.
