Speed Up Your Crimson People & Money Searches

cmdi | Mon Jan 23, 2023

A new enhancement to the Crimson platform dramatically shortens the amount of time it takes to run a People or Money search on large databases, such as party committees or presidential campaigns.

  • A search for $10,000+ gifts made after January 1, 2015 decreased from 41 seconds to 7 seconds.

  • A search for $10,000+ gifts after January 1, 2015 in 17 selected states decreased from 76 seconds to 14 seconds.

  • A search for March 2016 internet donors decreased from 10 seconds to 3 seconds.

In order to speed up these queries under People Search, the default for “Sort Order” was changed. When Sort Order is selected, it takes the search much longer to complete. Now, if you want this option enabled, you have to click on the blue icon at the top of the page.

A menu will appear where you can drag-and-drop the order of the fields for Search, Export and Print options.
