Our church is running a pledge campaign right now and we realized there is no way to enter an "anonymous" pledge. It would be nice to have this feature in the same way you can record general transactions without a name.
One of the main reasons for this is for when we receive a pledge offering and people simply put cash in the bucket. We don't know where it came from, but would like to record it as a pledge that was received anonymously.
Another reason is that when viewing the built in "Pledge and Transaction Amounts" report, it does not show these anonymous donations for our pledge.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I've added this as a feature request for you.
As a possible workaround, if you create a "Pledge" user, you can assign these pledges to this person, and they will show in the report.
Hope this helps,
