Re: Cares Act PPP Loan

Also, the board president told me that any of this loan money spent on utilities was also forgivable. Does anyone know if this is accurate? I am going to talk to the banker on Monday. Yes, that and rent or mortgage interest are forgivable - with a caveat. At least 75% of the PPP loan amount must be...

Re: Considering using Vanco for EContributions

I'm sure it does. It looks like after you set it up in PC all you do is select the "Import from Vanco" option under Contributions and contributions transfer directly from Vanco to PC. For SecureGive (and probably the others) there is one additional step added - an export from the eGiving app and the...

Re: Considering using Vanco for EContributions

Given the country-wide restrictions imposed due to COVID-19, our church is considering implementing online giving using VANCO. I spoke with a PC tech just now who said that VANCO is the only online giving software package that PC integrates with directly. It sounds like if we insure our fund #'s li...

Each seat (person) can install the MS Office 365 suite on up to five devices - work computer, phone, laptop, etc. Online storage through OneDriv...

Re: email server error

Good suggestions from Neilz. In a year's time your email service provider may have changed server names and/or outgoing sockets or security type. If Neilz's suggestion don't resolve the problem, you may need to contact your email service provider for the correct information. Also, double check that ...

You are right, I misspoke. it was my PC+ that was tied up and not the entire PC. I wish there was a way to o individualized attachments through something like Constant Contact.

Re: Emailing contribution statements to all donors

If this is your first time bulk emailing statements, here's a suggestion. Many email service providers may look at mass emails from a single account as SPAM. The way to get around that is to throttle the amount of emails you send out. Under Files>preferences>System Setup Options>Email check the "Use...

FWIW, one of our Mac users upgraded last evening and now multiple apps - including the IDS Client - will not work.

Re: Merge Envelopes

Why not use Contributions>Reassign>Reassign Envelope Number? That will merge the two histories.

Re: ACH and other Electronic Payments to Vendors

We have been using more ACH and Credit Card (for points) payments than checks lately. For our bank, ACH payments have a bank generated unique tracking/payment number. We use that as the check number. It also corresponds with what gets listed on the monthly bank statement which makes reconciliation m...

Re: Transferring monies from one acct to another

As long as all the accounts involved are in the same accounting fund (in this case, Fund 01 in Neilz's example) that's exactly how I would do it, too. If it involves movement between accounting funds - between a fund 01 to a fund 02 for example - you'll have to use some transfer accounts in order to...
