Overview, Working with Material Donations

Return To The Knowledge Base

Nonprofit organizations exist to support and raise funds and in some cases Materials for a specific purpose. A donation is a gift made by an individual, household or organization to a nonprofit. Argenta has a Donation Management System built in to help you track and run reports on your material donations.

 

To access the Material Donation Management system, from the Argenta main menu on the left hand side of any screen, select Donation Management > Material Donations.

 

When the page loads, The Material Donation List displays all the material donations that have been made to your organization. There are many things you can do on this screen.

 

Access Material Donation Classification Codes
At the top of the page above the title bar, are links for all of the classification codes related to material donations. You can manage classification codes by clicking on the corresponding link for the classification code list you want to update.

 

View The Total Number of Records and/or Total Dollar Value

Above every list is a pink label that displays the total of all items currently displayed in the list. If you filter the list by specific criteria, the totals will change to reflect the filter. This is a very quick and easy way to count or sum list items.

 

Search The List

Enter key phrases into the search field to search the list. Material donations can be searched by the donor's name and the donation description.

Export The List To Excel

Argenta is complete with many reports, charts, graphs and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can do that by exporting to Excel. Every List in Argenta has an "Export List To Excel" button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.

Sort The List

Click on any list header to sort the list by that field. Sorting the list can give you a visual overview of your data or help you find something quickly.
