Custom codes on JustGiving Fundraising Pages
JustGiving offers charities the ability to add custom codes to certain data, including Fundraising Pages - see this article (PDF).
When opting to use JustGiving custom codes these will override any settings that you have configured in your JustGiving Settings tab in donorfy or any Campaign specific mappings.
Donorfy has adopted the following convention for use of custom codes on Fundraising Pages, which will control how donations made via these pages are mapped to transactions in Donorfy.
Custom Code 2 - if defined, Donorfy will try to match this value to the name of a Department
Custom Code 3 - if defined, Donorfy will try to match this value to the name of a Campaign
Custom Code 4 - if defined, Donorfy will try to match this value to the name of a Fund
Custom Code 6 - if defined, Donorfy will try to match this value to a Constituent Number which will then be assumed to represent a Tribute Fund; donations against this page will then lead to transactions linked to the tribute fund
All other items, such as Product and Payment Method, will be taken from the JustGiving setting defaults which are configured in your Donorfy.

Note: Custom Codes in excess of 20 characters* in JustGiving will be truncated via the JustGiving API. In instances where this occurs, the code will not match a Department, Campaign, or Fund in Donorfy and will result in default settings being used.
If your Department, Campaign, or Fund in Donorfy is greater than 20 characters then it is suggested a new Department, Campaign, or Fund is created which is less than or equal to 20 characters in length.
* The number of characters includes spaces
