What's the Difference Between a "Relative" Year and a "Four-Digit" Year When Creating Reports?

Whether you're creating a Campaign Report, a Finance Report, or a Community Building Report, you can choose one of the "relative" year options from the Year drop-down list. Every time you run this report, Andar will look at your system preferences to determine what year's data to include in the report results.

On the other hand, if you type a specific "4-digit" year into the Year field on the report submission screen (especially on a Community Building Report), the saved report will always run for that specific year — regardless of the year that's identified in your system preferences.

Issuing Tax Receipts for Donations

Receipts for donations made to a fundraising organization can be processed and issued within Andar.

If you don't have the MIG module, Andar will produce a CSV file that you can download and mail-merge into a word processor document with pre-defined letter templates.

If you're licensed for Major Gift, Andar can do the mail merge automatically and produce receipts in PDF format. You can create different Receipt templates, tell Andar which template to use when generating Receipts in PDF format, and email them out to donors.
