When globally writing off pledges, some fields cannot be specified with values in the tool, such as Gift Attributes. When using this tool, the required fields will need to be made temporarily not required in order to complete the global update:
  1. Click on Config in the Raiser's Edge menu.
  2. Depending on the field specified, click on Fields or Attributes.
  3. Click on Gifts.
  4. Find the specified field.
  5. Unmark Required for that field.
  6. Resume globally writing off pledges.
  7. When the write-off is complete, repeat steps 1 through 5 but marking Required again to return the field requirement to your Raiser's Edge.
