The Giving Dashboard provides a detailed snapshot of your church's donations, accessible to users with specific permissions. It doesn't update in real-time but refreshes nightly. Key features include total giving analysis, insights into donor behavior, and the financial impact of both recurring and one-time gifts. Sections on covered fees, top givers, and new donors offer valuable data, while filters allow customization by date or location. This tool is essential for managing and understanding your church's financial health and donor engagement.
Please Note: The Giving Dashboard is not updated in real-time. It undergoes a nightly refresh to provide the latest information. You can refresh individual widgets at any time to ensure you have the most accurate information.

Understanding The Dashboard Timestamp
- You will see a timestamp now listed on the top right corner of your Dashboard.
- The “Last Updated” line displays the most recent update made to your Dashboard. This means that the Dashboard will include all donations up to this time.
- The “Next Update” line shows the next day that this intends to update. You may see this date as the same day as the Last Update date. Since the Dashboard can update multiple times per day, you may see the Next Update date match the Last Updated date. This is normal and means that you can expect another update to your Dashboard before the end of the day.
