    InterChange 4.0 Manual Design and Conventions

    Each chapter of the InterChange 4.0 Manual has been formatted in such a way so that you can learn

    the material as easily as possible and locate the information you need as quickly as possible. Here

    are the conventions and design features you’ll want to be aware of:

    • Each chapter gives an overview of what’s taught in its corresponding class and describes the

    learning goals for that particular course.

    • Each chapter contains a Table of Contents, so that you can locate information quickly.

    • At the end of most chapters are Job Aids, which are summarized steps of the different

    required tasks you learned in class. (Please note that knowledge-based courses do not

    contain Job Aids)

    • All manuals have screenshots of the different areas of InterChange that accompany written

    directions. These screenshots provide you with visual examples of what is explained in the

    instructions. There are circles and arrows on each screenshot and the colors of these

    pertain to the following:

    -Yellow: Pay attention to this area

    -Orange: Click on this area

    -Dark blue: Click and choose from a drop-down menu

    -Light blue: Enter text into this field

    -Red: Click on this button/icon/hyperlink

    There are also several icons in the manuals:

    = Indicates a Helpful Hint

    = Indicates a Reminder of something important covered in class

    = Indicates a Job Aid

    About InterChange

    InterChange is The Salvation Army Southern Territory’s Enterprise Constituent

    Relationship Management (CRM) System. A constituent is anyone who has a relationship

    with The Salvation Army. A constituent can be a donor, a volunteer, a board member, an

    accountant, an attorney or a fundraiser.

    Because InterChange is our Constituent Relationship Management system, it is the way we,

    in the Southern Territory, manage and track our relationships with our constituents.

    Tracking constituent relationships helps us with our organizational mission. Because we

    have InterChange, we are able to analyze the giving trends of our donors, keep track of the

    interests of our constituents and identify which direct marketing appeals and campaigns

    inspired our constituents to give gifts. Because we rely so heavily on the constituent

    information in InterChange to make essential decisions, it is essential that we keep as

    accurate and as detailed records in the system as we possibly can.

    This is why it’s so important for you to learn how to use InterChange correctly. Not only

    will the information in InterChange help you do your job better, but it will help our

    organization, as a whole, reach its goals. In order for The Salvation Army to “do the most

    good,” we must make sure the relationships we have with our constituents are strong.

    InterChange is the tool that helps us do just that.

    The InterChange Sandbox

    The InterChange sandbox is a copy of the live, InterChange database. It is used for practice

    and training purposes. The sandbox is separate from the live, InterChange database - any

    information added or edited in the sandbox will not transfer over to the live database.

    Use the sandbox for practice and to complete any exercises assigned by your InterChange

    trainer. Contact InterChange Support Services to request sandbox login credentials and the

    sandbox URL
