I'm trying to understand the translation between the gift attribute fields in RE and the ones available when setting up a profile in IOM.
In RE there are Category, Description, Short Desc, Date and Comments.
In IOM there are Gift Attribute-Type, Value, Date and Comments.
Gift Attribute-Type in IOM gives me no options - the field in the Value Type column turns blue and is not enabled.
Gift-Attribute-Value allows you to chose from a dropdown the Categories that you have in RE, so it seems Value corresponds to Category.
Gift Attribute Comments, when selected allows you to choose from a drop-down in the Value Type column, but the only choice available is "Field 3". There is no column in my profile that is named Field 3, there are 12 columns in all. There is a column named "Description" which included the values that I would like to have appear in the Description field of the attribute in RE. They do appear, but they are in the Comments field. It's like IOM is calling Gift Attribute- Comments "Field 3", but it is using the data that is in a column named "Description in my import file. Seems kind of spooky, but at least the Comments in RE and IOM seem to be in sync.
I hope this is clear. Sometimes I don't know if I'm over-explaining. Basically, the values that I want for the attributes are in RE, they're just not all where I want them. Does anyone know how to get things into the Description field, and/or what Gift Attribute-Type in IOM corresponds to?
