Donation information disappears in the Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) nightly
|Knowledge Article Number||000228419|
Why may donation information entered in Salesforce using the Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) disappear?
|Resolution||It depends where you are entering the donation information. You need to enter donation history as separate Opportunity records. You should not enter data directly into the fields on aContact or Account that begins with “Best,” “First,” “Last,” “Number,” “Soft Credit” or “Total.” Those fields are calculated automatically nightly and if you don’t have opportunity records for the automation to pull from, the fields will be reset to 0 and your entered data will be lost.
