Note: Entering a gift with a Gift date and/or GL post date other than today's date causes the gift to appear on reports for the date entered in the Gift date or GL post date field. For example, if a gift is entered on 12/15/2006 with a Gift date of 7/1/2005, the gift will appear on reports under the date 7/1/2005.
- On the Gift tab in the Gift date field, the value defaults to today's date. Change the value to the appropriate date.
- On the Miscellaneous tab in the GL post date field, the value defaults to today's date. Change the value to the appropriate date. Note: Consult with your accounting department to determine the appropriate value for the GL post date field. If the date is in a closed fiscal period, the gift may not be able to post to General Ledger.
- If your organization wants to track gifts with Gift dates and/or GL post dates that are different than the dates they were entered, add a gift notepad with the appropriate information
- Save and close the gift
