Philanthrogeek Nathaniel James google hung out to talk about Open hGrant. We geeked out a little on the plugin and geeked out a lot on the value of sharing data in the field of philanthropy. Check it out.
Ask and ye shall receive: Open hGrant for WordPress went to version 1.1 today with two key features now available:
- Easy upload of big batches of grants
Just export your grants data to a spreadsheet and save it in CSV format. Once you’re in the WordPress dashboard, choose hGrants/Import CSV to upload the file, use the dropdowns tom map it to the hGrant spec and click Import. Voilà and not a moment too soon, we’re thinking.
- One-click activation
Once you’re up and running, clicking this button sends email to us and to the Foundation Center hGrant folks, who can test your grants data feed for inclusion in their open data intiatives. Easy peasy.
