Journal entries are automatically being marked as final

When viewing a new gift in eTapestry, the checkbox for final has already been marked automatically.
This behavior can be expected when the DIY form is set to 'Generate receipts on transactions from this page". In order to prevent gifts from being marked as final, you can change this setting:
  1. Go to management>DIY
  2. Click edit next to the DIY form
  3. Click settings
  4. Scroll to "Generate receipts on transactions from this page?"
  5. Unmark the box
  6. Click Update

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Make a new gift on a DIY form
  2. Immediately login to eTapestry and open the journal for the donor
  3. Note that the checkbox for 'Final' is already marked
