Allow for enter number of donors when you enter dollar amount for offline gifts

Because it looks odd when you enter large dollar amounts from offline multiple donors yet the campaign shows no donors

    It's definitely preferable to enter offline gifts with at least minimal detail (name or # of donor) so that we don't have to keep an extra spreadsheet to track this. We risk duplication if we can't track this in Just Giving. One of our board members wrote a check specific to this campaign (old school Peer to Peer!), so we want to be able to recognize him on our page.

    This would be great and something that our participants have been asking for as well.   It can look silly when there are large dollar amounts and no donors; it can also be intimidating to potential donors when it looks like the average gift size is larger than it really is because of this.  Having it as an option would be incredibly helpful.

    Thanks for the suggestion. We have a number of differing market needs when it comes to offline donations. Some organisations like to enter one lump sum (as supported today), some expect each offline amount to be entered as a line item and potentially even referenced to an individual's name.

    Some also expect the donor count to rise in each instance but at present there is a lot of logic in there that ties the count to the pure donations made on our platform.

    We'll take this suggestion under advisement for now.

    Thanks
