When setting up an Online Express donation form, users can optionally choose to include Gift Attributes on the donation form and make them available for the donors to select when making a donation. Gift Attributes can be made available for selection on the donation form by using the settings provided on the Extras tab of the Donation Form Setup wizard. When the Attribute is configured to use a Data Type of Table, the way the table entries display on the completed form will vary slightly depending on whether or not the Attribute has been marked with the option to "Allow Only 1 per Record" in Config.
When a Gift Attribute is associated with a Table and the Attribute is NOT marked as "Allow Only 1 per Record", the table entries for this Gift Attribute will appear as a list with checkboxes next to them. This allows the donor to select multiple table entries values when filling out the form. The multiple Attribute values that are selected will appear as separate Attribute rows on the record once it is added to the Raiser's Edge database.
When a Gift Attribute is associated with a Table and the Attribute is also marked as "Allow Only 1 per Record", the table entries for this Gift Attribute will appear as a drop-down menu on the Online Express donation form. This forces the donor to only be able to select one value for that Attribute when filling out the form.
NOTE: Only Active Table Entries will be visible in the drop down selections. If an entry should not appear in the drop down, then the entry must be made inactive within Config>Tables>Table Name and the entry marked Inactive. There is not an option to make an entry inactive exclusively within Online Express, it would be inactive in both The Raiser's Edge and Online Express.
