We have staff who raise money for support as well as people in our church who raise money for missions trips. The donors are not part of our church. I've been going through the donors and marking them as contacts. When someone gives again they are marked as active and not a contact. Is there a way to prevent the overriding of their status? Is anyone else running into this situation?
Anyone that's given in the last 3 months will automatically marked as Active, not as Contacts. One of the restrictions on Contacts is that they can't have transactions that are within the last 3 months.
I would suggest creating a People Category for these donors, and generate a report for people in that category with 0 transactions in the last 3 months that aren't contacts.
Hope this helps,
