New donation information may be imported to Salsa CRM along with the primary donor's demographic data such as address or phone number.
If you are importing donation data, some elements are required to be present in your data file, while others are merely recommended. For instance, If you are importing a check donation, you must include data columns for Payment Type = Check, Check Number and Check Date.
In another example, to import Credit Card donations you must include...
- Payment Type (Credit Card)
- Credit Card Expire Date
- Authorization Number
- Credit Card Number (last 4 digits only are stored)
If Payment Type is omitted—or required fields based on Payment Type are omitted—donations will be imported as Cash.
Please see this Excel file for examples of how to organize your data. Of course, if you use these templates as a basis for your data file, they must be saved as a CSV file before importing them into Salsa CRM.
