Targeter Homepage

The Find bar is a quick search bar that lets you rapidly find a constituent by first name, last name, entity ID, maiden name, or nickname. Just type in the information you want to use to search and click the arrow to go.

NOTE: Your results from the Find bar will include both Active and Inactive (such as Deceased or Lost) constituents. Inactive constituents will be identified in the second column, Relationship Status, in orange.



The Queries Tab on the Targeter homepage allows you to quickly jump to the queries you have created, queries colleagues have saved and shared, queries you subscribe to, or queries that you have marked as favorites. In addition, Fundraiser Performance Management Templates are also available to help you get started creating your own versions of commonly requested reports.

Here are the folders in the Queries menu:

  • All Queries: A list of all of the available queries that you have created, any queries that other users at your institution have made 'Public,' as well as the Fundraiser Performance Management Templates.
  • My Queries: All queries that you have created and saved. This will include both your Public and Private queries.
  • My Subscribed Queries: Includes all queries that you have created a Subscription for.
  • Favorites: Includes any query that you have Favorited by clicking the star to add it. Favorited queries appear in the list with a solid blue star.
  • Fundraiser Performance Management Templates: Blackbaud Fundraiser Performance Management created and curated query templates that help you get started with some of our most commonly used searches.

The table in the Query Tab includes the following information:

  • Name: Displays the query name, description, and whether the query is Private, Public, or a Fundraiser Performance Management Template.
  • Last User: Shows the date you last ran the query. The table defaults to showing the last used query at the top of the list.
  • Subscription Settings: Displays how often you are scheduled to receive the query's results via a Subscription as well as the total number of subscribers to that query. If no subscription exists, you can click on +Subscribe to create a new subscription for yourself.
  • Additional Icons:
    • Add/Added star icon allows you to Favorite a query with one click to include it to your Favorites folder. A solid star means the query has been added as a favorite. Click again to remove the query as a favorite.
    • Copy icon lets you begin to create a new copy of an existing query. You will be required to give your new copy a unique query name.
    • Delete lets you permanently delete any query that you have created. This will also remove any subscriptions that have been created using this query.
