Gift is in memory

Hi
We regularly use Import O Matic to import gifts from JustGiving. Many of these fundraising pages have been created in memory someone, so we would like to be able to specify that the gifts are in memory of a constituent. The only way I have seen to do this is to run a "tribute import". However is there any way to change one of the cells on our IOM profile so that the gift is added as being in memory of the person named in this cell?
Thank you

Hi Laura,

In order to add a gift in memory of someone you'll need to do two passes, unless you have the import ID for the tributee in your file.

The first pass will bring in the tributee and you'll output the import ID for that record. The second pass will bring in the donor and link the gift to the tributee using the import ID from pass one.

You can find step-by-step instructions for how to do this type of import in the current user guide, starting on page 262.

Regarding changing a cell, how would you like to change it?

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you,
Amanda
