    4. Within the Engage window you are taken to the New Gift page. You can go to this option anytime by clicking New Gift from the menu. 


    If you click in the white space between the results list and the donor's record and drag the box up, you can format the window so you can see more of the giving form.

    1. Now- You can create a one-time gift that will occur immediately. 

    2. Later- You can schedule a one-time gift in the future.

    3. Recurring- You can schedule a recurring donation, decide its start/end date or make it indefinite, and decide its recurring frequency.
