Steps to Duplicate

  1. Login to CRM and got to Fundraising Functional Area

  2. Select Designation Search

  3.  Find or create a designation that has a public name longer than 50 characters

  4. Access a donation form using this designation

  5. Select the Designation dropdown

  6. Notice that the designation public names are what appear in the dropdown.  If they are more than 50 characters their names are truncated and this makes it difficult to differentiate between them.
