1.0 to 2.0: What Happens to Agency Categories?

This article is for agency managers and site administrators who previously used Get Connected 1.0 and are making the move to Get Connected 2.0.

In Get Connected 1.0, agency managers can select categories that apply to their agencies. They can do the same in Get Connected 2.0, but there are a couple of differences:

  • Agency categories are called causes in Get Connected 2.0.
  • Managers can select from a a limited list of causes in Get Connected 2.0.

Get Connected 1.0 offered a long list of very specific agency categories. The causes in Get Connected 2.0 are fewer and more general. When platforms move from 1.0 to 2.0, Get Connected assigns general causes based on each agency's original categories. For example, an agency with both "Food" and "Meal Planning" as categories in Get Connected 1.0 will be assigned the cause "Basic Needs" in Get Connected 2.0.

Purpose of this Article

This article explains what happens to the individual agency categories when a Get Connected platform moves from version 1.0 to version 2.0.

Note: If your agency's category is not included in this article and you're not sure which causes to apply, see our article "Causes and Icons in Get Connected" for suggestions. If you think a category should be included as a cause, please contact our Customer Care team with your request.

Tip: To find a specific 1.0 category in this article, do a search on that term. (Click Ctrl+F, type the name of the category, and press Enter.)
