What is a Static value in the mapping wizard?

Sometimes you need to add a single value to a column to be included in your import file. A good example is phone type. Every phone number, emails as well, need to have a corresponding, “Phone Type” the static value helps enter this.

Note: Remember if you type something in as a static value it much match what is in your database. For example if you want to add a static value of the constituent code, “Online Donor” and you only type in, “Online” you will receive import exceptions stating that value, “Online” does not exist.

Review the screen images of the entire wizard on the Home page as we created a number of static fields that we use often.
