Registering for the TrueGivers & Little Green Light Integration does not include automatic synchronization, so you will not see new data in your Little Green Light database until you purchase credits. Additionally, some search features are disabled until you purchase. Continue reading to learn more about the purchasing process.

Purchase Whenever You Are Ready

To have your database automatically synchronized, purchase credits in TrueGivers. Follow these steps.

Purchase Credits

TrueGivers uses credits to streamline the purchasing process. One (1) credit is equal to $0.10. In the blue box on the Data Stewardship Dashboard, you will see a Purchase Credits button.

Purchase Credits

Clicking this button will open a purchase form. Select the pricing tier that corresponds with your credit count total.

In order for data to synchronize, you must purchase enough credits to cover all of the records in your Little Green Light database. Credits never expire, so you are welcome to purchase additional credits to cover additional months of service. You are always able to purchase credits through the Credits Counter located in the User Menu dropdown. This is located at the top right corner of your screen. Use the drop-down menu to choose the number of credits you would like to purchase.

Credits help us deliver uninterrupted service for our customers. Read more determining the right number of credits to purchase on our pricing page.

Apply Credits

After you purchase credits, we recommend you click the "Apply Credits" button to see your new data immediately. Clicking the Apply Credits button unlocks all TrueGivers features.

TrueGivers will ask you to confirm that you want to apply your credits. Click "OK" to do so. If you do not manually apply your credits, don't worry. TrueGivers will automatically apply your credits during nightly synchronization. After you Apply Credits, you will have access to all TrueGivers features and data until your account has insufficient credits.

TrueGivers Creates Customizations Automatically

Each CRM has their own ability for you to create customizations to their user profiles. In Little Green Light, Categories fields are fields that are not default Little Green Light fields. TrueGivers will automatically create these fields for you during your registration. Even if this field is accidentally removed or edited, TrueGivers will re-add the field for you to make sure you are getting the most out of the integration.
