This tab contains specific items related to this contact that is not basic biographical information.

Journal Name

The Journal Name is part of the description for journal items posted to the General ledger. It is set automatically when a contact is created. It is typically the first initial of the first name + [underscore] + last name or, for organizations, the first 13 characters. The maximum length is 13 characters.

The Journal Name is not required to be unique, and DonorWise itself will create duplicate Journal Names when the criteria above is shared (such as two organizations with the same first 13 characters).

If any non-safe (not ASCII) characters exist and it is integrated to a non Unicode compliant GL, then the ‘unsafe’ characters are replaced with _ (underscore).

This field is used if you post donations in detail to your General ledger.

This field is also used to create the journal line descriptions when Transfer batches are posted.
