We are planning on migrating from our current membership database to CiviCRM. I am starting to experiment with the system to see how to implement things. I am using version 4.7.17 on WordPress. We want to specify whether a mailed donation came to the station or to our PO Box. I set up a custom data field for contributions (alphanumeric text). It's active and searchable but when I go to the New Contribution window, it doesn't appear. Have I missed something ?
(I know alphanumeric text may not be the best choice, but for now I simply want to figure out why it is not appearing)
