Unexpected Error when Importing Constituents with Gift Aid Declarations

When using the Import Type of "Account Information with Single Gift Aid Declaration" there is no Persona field to map to.  As this is a required field when creating a new account, the import fails and the error "An Unexpected Error Occurred" is received.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.
