CiviCRM offers community contributed documentation in the form of digital books, listed below. We encourage everyone to help contribute to documentation.
Note: some documentation has not yet been moved into book format and can still be found on our wiki while it awaits migration.
These books pertain to CiviCRM "Core", that is, CiviCRM when it is installed without any extensions.
For staff members who use CiviCRM's web-based interface as part of their job at an organization
For computer programmers who create and improve functionality within CiviCRM
For tech savvy people who install, upgrade, and maintain CiviCRM for an organization
Extensions can be installed within CiviCRM to provide new functionality not available in core. Below are our extensions-specific documentation books — but note that many extensions do not have dedicated books, so this list represents only a small fraction of all the available extensions.
Provides an iCalendar feed of assigned activities per contact
Enables you to carry out automated conversations via SMS.
Allows CiviCRM to send emails and process bounces through the SparkPost service.
If you are an extensions maintainer, you may follow these instructions to create a book for your extension.
