Notes on Eventbrite Data Integration
Gifts processed via the Eventbrite events will also push to Crimson. Below is how Crimson will determine the Source Code for those gifts.
Clients can link Crimson Source Codes to Events under the Source Code’s setting.
If no Source Code is linked, then Crimson will create a new Source Code based on your event name.
You must select a Fund Code option for your Crimson Event settings. This will allow Crimson to determine the correct code to apply to the gift information received from Eventbrite.
Gifts received through Eventbrite will have a default batch # of EVBR, and money type of “EB”.
One Source Code can be linked to multiple Crimson Events. One Eventbrite event can only be linked to one Crimson Event.
