To change the order when sorted alphabetically, add a prefix to the ID or Description so that they are sorted in the desired order.
To change the sort order of campaigns, funds or appeals on the drop-down in gift records, users have the option of limiting gift entry to associated campaigns, funds and appeals (new in Raiser's Edge 7). The rule for sorting campaigns/funds/appeals in a drop-down is as follows:
- If the fund drop-down list is limited by the checkbox for associated funds on a Campaign or Appeal record, then the drop-down lists funds in the order they appear on the record limiting the selection.
- If the list is not limited, then all funds appear in alphabetical order according to the ID or Description, as selected in User Options.
Note: When a Campaign, Fund, or Appeal search is run, the records can be sorted in the results grid by changing the sort order of the query used for the search.
