Share Impact Stories
Creating an impact story has never been easier, and you don’t need to be a graphic designer (or a copywriter) to do it efficiently and effectively!
Use one of our pre-defined templates, or craft your own combination of narrative, images and/or videos, and results charts to compose an impact story that moves people to action. Leverage content that you or your team members have already crafted elsewhere in the system and easily drag and drop it into your story to save time. Or, utilize the new ChatGPT functionality powered by OpenAI to auto-generate a draft of your story in seconds. Then publish your impact story to the most popular social networks and other digital channels to share your amazing work with your key stakeholders and the world.
VISUALIZE YOUR RESULTS
Define your indicators using best practice data standards in the Project Logframe. Let the system work its magic to auto-create a results entry table that matches your timelines and results definitions. On each indicator’s dedicated data entry page, enter results for each reporting period, then toggle to the Chart tab to see auto-generated graphs in seconds.
INSIGHTS & REUSABLE CONTENT
Insights let you record, tag, and share notes, decisions, stakeholder feedback, and observations throughout b.world. Is there an assumption tied to the timeframe for your project’s activities? Has a decision been made as a result of an outcome? Do you have a testimonial that should be shared? ‘Insights’ is the right place to record this narrative information. And it gets even better! Insights are easy to view in a central panel across the app and in stories, so you can write once and share everywhere.
SDG & GLOBAL ELEMENT LIBRARIES
Standardize your impact framework across programs no matter the size of your team by logging creating and sharing reusable Goals, Objectives, Activities, Indicators and Dimensions in the with b.world Project Elements section.
These standards can be pulled inadded to any Logframe or Project Whiteboard within your team and reused as many times as possible. The ability to use standard indicators becomes key especially when aggregating results data across projects.
We make it easy to align your programs to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals so you can elevate your impact to the global standard. Additionally, we know that many organizations subscribe to the SDGs, and their organization’s projects and goals are aligned to one or more of the SDGs, targets and indicators therein. Use b.world to track your organization’s progress toward your selected SDG targets, as the full library of SDGs indicators are integrated into b.world.
