Crimson 2 FAQ: How to Link an Event to a Source Code

In Crimson, Event Codes can be used to help manage event details and invitees.  Event Codes are applied at the People Record level, whereas Source Codes are applied at the gift level to help identify where money is coming in from.  The two codes can be linked together to help enhance event tracking.
