Overview

 

The Update Donor Number functionality can be used to correct the donor associated with posted donation order. The Update Donor Number functionality does not update items, item quantities, or any details of the transaction other than changing the donor information on the record. The parent donor must be the same for the original and the new Donor. Security is in place to prevent unauthorized users from running this process.


Setup

 

  1. The Change Donor on Posted Documents field in the User Setup controls which users can or cannot run the Update Donor Number function. User Setup can be accessed by selecting “Search” from the Dynamics 365 Business Central Banner and entering “User Setup” in “Tell me what you want to do” then selecting “User Setup” from the results in the Go to Pages and Tasks section OR by selecting the “User Setup” menu action (if present) from your Role Center home page.

 


  1. From User Setup List Page, select Edit List. You are now in edit mode and will be able to make changes to the setup.

  

 

  1. Locate the desired user’s record you want to update and place a check mark in the Chane Donor on Post Orders field. This user has now been granted permission to run the Update Donor Number function.

 


Updating Donor Number on Posted Donation Orders

 

  1. The process of changing the Donor is initiated from the posted donation order. Posted Donation Orders can be accessed by selecting “Search” from the Dynamics 365 Business Central Banner and entering “Posted Donation Orders” in “Tell me what you want to do” then selecting “Posted Donation Orders” from the results in the Go to Reports and Analysis section OR by selecting the “Posted Donation Orders” menu action (if present) from your Role Center home page.

 

 

  1. The Posted Donation Order List Page will be displayed.

 


  1. Locate the posted donation order you want to change, and then select Manage à Edit.

 

  

  1. From the Posted Donation Order, select Home à Process à Update Donor Number.

  


  1. If Ceres has not been configured for a specific user to complete this function, the following message will display. Click OK to clear the message.

  

 

  1. Whereas if the user is configured to complete this function, the Update Donor Number Request Page will be displayed. The current Donor number and Donor name will populate based on the related posted donation order’s donor information.

  

 

  1. Enter the new Donor in the New Donor No. field.

  


  1. Toggle on the Update box if you wish to have Ceres effect the changes. Left unselected, the report will simply provide a preview of the information what will be changed by this process. Normally you would toggle this and press Print to complete the process. If you have the Update toggled on, you will not be allowed to preview as a hard copy is required when performing this update. If you attempt to Update without printing you will receive the following error message.

 


  1. When you select print with the Update box toggled on, a confirmation message will display. Click Yes to replace the Donor No. and No to cancel the process.

 


  1.  The process will run, and all related records are updated. At the completion of the process, you will receive the following message and the donation order will show the new donor information.

 


  1. The printed report will capture the information changed in the database by the process. Below is an example of the report’s output.
