Hello! We have a couple gift attributes we want to import with our current profile we use to import online gifts from Lumintate. Currently, we need to manually add that data to the import file for it to populate in batch. If we don't manually add it, we have to select it for every single gift (since it's RE and you can't auto-fill these fields). I have RE Batch set to default what attributes I want added to each gift, but IOM ignores that default. I pulls in other defaults (such as Pay Method, Gift Type, etc), but it always ignores it on these attributes.
Is there a way around this, or am I always going to have to tweak my import file before importing?
You would create a gift default set to add the gift attribute. This will then be applied in your profile under Defaults--> New Gifts
For the virtual field, you first right click within Virtual Fields and choose "Insert virtual field". Map as:
Field Name =
Record Type = Gift Attribute - Description
Value Type =
Function = Static Field (field name)
Static Field tells IOM to import the value you've entered in the field name.
