A transaction in Causeview is the same as a transaction in the general sense - any instance where money is exchanged. There are several ways to create transactions, depending on who is giving the money to your organization - an individual or organization - and what transaction type you are processing. Transactions may be gifts, grants, event registrations, or product purchases. Gifts are the most common type of transaction for most organizations, and are further divided into gift types, including one time gifts and recurring gifts.
A transaction saved in Causeview is connected to an allocation and a payment, as well as a constituent and in some cases a recurring gift or event registration.
