    Edit An Existing Pledge or Pledge Installments

    In This Article:

      You may edit a pledge after the pledge has already been saved. For example, you may need to change the total pledge amount to increase someone's promise to give, or you may need to change the installments for the pledge.

      To edit a pledge, open the desired pledge and select the Details button.

      Change the Total Pledge Amount

      The pledge amount cannot be edited on the original donation screen. To change the pledge amount...

      1. Edit the Total Pledge Amount.
      2. If installments have not yet been generated for this pledge, you may choose the Distribute Unpaid button to have Salsa CRM calculate the Unpaid pledge installments based on the new amount.If there have already been installments made toward the pledge, click the Distribute Unpaid button to evenly redistribute the revised pledge amount over the remaining Unpaid payments.
      3. Click the OK button in the lower right corner of the Pledge Details window.
      4. Select the Save button in the donation screen.
      5. If the pledge amount and the scheduled installments are not equal the Amount Due will reflect the difference.
         
        If you click OK to close the pledge, Salsa CRM will respond with a warning pop-up advising to correct the pledge so that the pledge and the installments are in balance.  Before you can complete the transaction, the error must be corrected in the Pledge Details screen. 

      Pledge Installments

      Pledge installments can have 5 different statuses:

      Amount Due > $0
      Amount Paid is blank

      The installment is currently paid in full.

      Amount Due = Amount Paid

      Underpaid

      The installment is paid for less than the amount due.

      Amount Due > Amount Paid

      Overpaid

      The installment is currently paid for more than the amount due.

      Amount Due < Amount Paid
