Defaults can be set for a Gift Batch to speed up data entry. When defaults are set for Appeal and Package, and the field of Package is placed above/before Appeal on the Fields tab the default is not saved for the Appeal.
Because Appeal is a required field to add a Package, this issue can be resolved by placing the Appeal before the Package in the list of fields.
