What is mapping?
Mapping is linking an activity on the platform to a record on Almabase. The activity could be making a gift, registering for an event, viewing a page, posting on a Space, etc.
How to map a gift?
Click on the unmapped gift, and choose a record to link it to.
If you do not find a record on Almabase, then you can either create a new one or directly map it to the constituent on Raiser's edge.
Gifts are unmapped if —
No record with that email address is found OR
More than one record with the same email address is found
In either case, you have to manually map the gift to an existing record or create a new record on Almabase or directly map it to the constituent on Raiser's edge.
Why to map?
Gifts need to be mapped to a record on Almabase for them to be tracked as an engagement touchpoint on the platform.
This helps with reporting on alumni engagement within the platform.
