The Gift Input Form came from the early days of TntMPD before web-download of gifts was possible. It is also very helpful for those who serve in ministries which do not have automatic download and do not receive a file from their organization. Indeed, it is this feature that makes TntMPD particularly useful for any missionary, in any organization. In alphabetical order it lists all partners who have given in the past 13 months.
The "Gift Input Form" provides a list of all contacts who have given in the past 13 months. If a contact has given their first gift this month, their name will appear above the dashed line.
This form is most likely to be used by a missionary whose organization does not have web download available and sends the missionary a printed report. This form is designed for quick entry of an entire month's donations. When a missionary has no gifts for the month yet (for example, they only enter gifts once per month), the Gift Input Form will have no amounts, just recent donors. This will allow for quick entry of donations.
Since your list will only include those who have given a gift in the past 13 months, you may need to find an existing contact to add a gift. Select a contact from your database to add to the Gift Input Form. Note: This does not add contacts to your database.
Duplicate the line you currently have selected, to add a second gift for the selected contact
If you receive printed donation summaries from your organization, it is likely you will receive these after the month end. In that case, you can select a different month to input gifts.
