Entering Contributions

Entering Contributions

Faith Teams makes it easy to input contributions. First, you need to select or create the Batch you want to work in, then you can input contributions.

Selecting the Batch:

  1. Click on the “Contributions” tab in the menu.
  2. Click “Contribution Entry”.
  3. Select the Batch you want to work in. You can select from the list, or Create a New Batch.
    • A batch is a way to group and manage your contributions. A good example is your ‘Sunday Morning Offering’ is a batch. Before you can add an individual contribution, you must create a batch.

Entering Contributions:

  1. Now that your Batch is open, you can input contributions.
  2. Begin typing the name of the contributor in the text field labeled: ‘Enter a Name’ on the top right of the screen. Once you see the desired name, select it by clicking on it.
  3. Enter the dollar and cents amount of the total contribution.
    • NOTE: Using the tab key is the fastest way to input data.
  4. Enter the type of contribution this is. Cash, check, etc.
  5. If entering a check, enter the check number
  6. A line item will automatically be added below. Select the fund this contribution is for.
    • If you need to split a contribution, change the dollar amount in this line item, and new line items will appear. You’ll be able to split a contribution across 2 or more funds when needed.
  7. Once you are finished, click the ‘Save Contribution’ button.
  8. Repeat Steps 2 thru 7 until you have input all the contributions for this batch.
  9. On the left side of this page, you can see a summary of the batch. You can also download or print the Batch Summary, which can be physically signed.
  10. Once all contributions are input for this batch, you can click “Close Batch” in the Batch Summary section. You can re-open it in the future if needed.
