We are a trade union with several hundred members paying their dues on a monthly basis. They pay via their bank or through check-off from their employer. We have to keep their contributions and membership status up to date.
We have membership status rules set up so that we know who is a financial member and who has lapsed.
My question is this: how to bulk import contributions in a way that will automatically renew the membership?
Batch data entry seems to achieve this - but it requires putting in the names one at a time.
Importing a csv file enables bulk import of contributions, but does not seem to automatically renew membership.
Using profiles does not seem to renew membership either.
So ... suggestions would be much appreciated.
