  • Closed: You cannot edit closed batch details nor the transactions contained within the batch.

This field allows no more than two digits after the decimal point.

When you create a new batch, a zero (0) is displayed in this field. The system automatically keeps track of the transactions you enter and displays a count in this field.

Batch Type

Type of batch. You must define the type of the batch as one of the following:

  • Detailed Posting: select this option if you have multiple contributions or pledge payments to enter but you want to record greater detail for each contribution than you do for quick entry posting.   

  • Quick Entry Posting: select this option if you have a workflow that requires you to enter many contributions and you want to enter them quickly into the system. If you select this option, you must use the Quick Entry Posting process to enter contributions. That process uses a batch entry form optimized for quick data entry and for reducing data entry errors.

Date Opened *

This field allows no more than two digits after the decimal point.

Pledge Balance

Deposit Date

This field applies to batches associated with the ConnectNow Offering to ConnectNow Accounting integration only.

 

Specifies the date that all monies in the batch will be deposited into a bank account in the ConnectNow Accounting system.

Specifying a deposit date is optional. Be aware that if you do not specify a date, the system uses the date the batch was closed as the deposit date entry in the ConnectNow Accounting system. If you do not specify a date, you can enter a past date, today's date, or a future date. The date you enter, however, must be on or after the opening date of the bank account receiving the deposit and, if that account is closed, prior to its closing date.
