Can I manually upload data to DonorCentral?

I want to upload our data on Donor Central during the day without waiting for our nightly upload. How can I do this? How do I know it worked? Does my new information display immediately? 
Yes, you can do a manual upload to Donor Central! (Other users do not need to log out of FIMS for you to do this.)
  1. In FIMS, go to Tools > System Utilities > DonorCentral > Donor Central Export.
  2. The ‘Export Data’ box should already be checked, you now need to check the ‘Upload to Donor Central’ box.
  3. Click Ok. The process will take a few minutes to complete.


To check that Donor Central has been updated with the new data:

For DonorCentral NXT, go to Control panel\Monitoring:

For DonorCentral v4 go to the Upload Status Monitor outlined in page 6 of this document:
https://www.blackbaud.com/docs/default-source/how-to-documentation/donorcentral/dc_adminportalguide.pdf?sfvrsn=1de8fb28_4

It can take up to 90 minutes for your data to be posted to your site after uploading.
