Editing Project, Program or Fund Designation Lookup ID updates other Designation Lookup ID's

You may notice that when editing a Project, Program or Fund Designation Lookup ID, it also updates other Project, Program or Fund Designation Lookup ID's under the same initiative.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.

Alternative Solution:
  1. Navigate to Fundraising> Fundraising Hierarchies
  2. Click on a Project, Program or Fund that was changed by this update to open designation record
  3. Underneath Tasks, click Edit Designation and you will see the Lookup ID shows the correct lookup ID
  4. Click Save without any changes, and the Lookup ID will revert back to the correct Lookup ID

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Click on Fundraising> Fundraising Hierarchies
  2. Click on any Project, Program or Fund
  3. Note the Designation Look up ID (ex: 8888-8888)
  4. Underneath Tasks, click Edit designation
  5. Edit Lookup ID to add or remove numbers/letters (ex: Change 8888-8888 to 8888-8888-1234) and Save
  6. Click on Fundraising> Fundraising Hierarchies
  7. Note all Projects, Programs or Funds that have the same 8888 prefaced in the Designation Lookup ID add this 1234 to the middle of their own Lookup ID (ex: 8888-12349999)
