Business Units are not added to Sponsorship recurring gift when using source code search to load the appeal

When entering a Sponsorship along with a recurring gift, a user may notice that the recurring gift does not include the business units related to the appeal.  This occurs when the appeal is loaded by searching for a source code.  

If the marketing effort is created from a communication template with the option 'Override appeal business units in the effort and/or in segments' the business units from the appeal will not be applied to payments entered using the source code.  This option allows you to select a business unit on the marketing effort directly.

To apply the business unit from the appeal ensure the communication template used to create the marketing effort does not have the option 'Override appeal business units in the effort and/or in segments' marked.
