Once you establish a web service connection, you can automate gift, constituent, and constituent appeal data entry in The Raiser’s Edge Batch using the Blackbaud Direct Marketing finder number. When you enter a finder number into the Finder Number field column in a gift batch, The Raiser’s Edge connects to Blackbaud Direct Marketing using the Web service connection and pulls the gift, constituent, and appeal information assigned to the finder number into the batch automatically. Constituent appeals are added only for new constituents.
