- Enter the amount of the installment as a Single Donation.
- When you have entered all of the gifts for the batch, click Check Entries.
- For each entry with a Contact that has an Active Recurring Gift, you should get a notification under the Status column.
- Check on the Status Notification for each Contact and it will notify that there are Outstanding payments for the contact and to select which Recurring Gift or Pledge to apply the payment to.
- Choose which gift to apply the payment to and click Use Selected Donation.
- After associating all Batch installments, click Check Entries again, then once all other notices are cleared, click Commit Batch.
Note: Currently, only one installment may be made to a specific Pledge or Recurring Gift per Batch.
