Past gifts are not automatically soft credited when marking the Automatically soft credit this individual for gifts checkbox. Only new gifts are soft credited. If the two records are linked as spouses, you can soft credit each for the other's past gifts:

    • Open the constituent record to which the soft credits should be added.
    • Select Constituent, Soft Credit for Spouse's Gifts from the menu bar. A message box appears explaining what will happen next.
    • Click OK to create the soft credits.
    • After the process completes, a second message appears indicating the number of gifts that were successfully soft credited.
