Donations, pledges, and promises can be linked to opportunities. Multiple donations and/or pledges and/or promises can be linked to one opportunity.
Donations will decrease the balance in the opportunity. Pledges and promises will not decrease the opportunity balance. Their associated payments will decrease the opportunity balance.
This opportunity has a balance of $25,000 and no donations or pledges have been linked.
Link a Donation
- After a donation has been entered, in the donation record select Link Opportunity from the left-side menu.
- If the open opportunity is under the same profile as the donation, click [link]. If it's on another profile, manually type in the opportunity ID number and click Link in the Manually Link Opportunity section.
Link a Pledge or Promise
After a pledge has been posted, or a promise has been committed, a Link Open Opportunity box will appear. This will display all open opportunities on the record the donation or pledge was posted to. Pledges and promises can only be linked to opportunities that are under the same profile as the pledge or promise.
Click the blue [link] option on the right hand side. Selecting this will link the pledge or promise to the opportunity.
Both the donation and promise from the above examples are linked to the opportunity and are listed below the Opportunity and Tasks. The donation has decreased the opportunity balance. Any future payments on the promise will decrease the the opportunity balance.
