If you do not interface with Blackbaud's General Ledger or another accounting package, you may run the Unpost Gifts plug-in to globally change the Post Status from Posted to Not Posted. Gifts with a post status of Not Posted are included the next time gifts are posted to the General Ledger in Administration. If you post to an accounting package, this could cause duplicate entries in the accounting package. 

Note: This plug-in cannot be used to unpost gift adjustments by themselves, which can cause reconciling issues if any gift adjustments were ever posted to an accounting software. To unpost gifts and the adjustments on them, refer to KB 39485.

  1. Download and run the Unpost Gifts plug-in
  2. If the gifts' Post Status should be changed to Do Not Post or back to Posted, globally change the post status, as instructed above, to avoid duplicate entries in an accounting package
