The Clean-Up Utility will permanently delete any offerings and pledges that are dated 10 years ago and back from the beginning of the current year. While optional, this utility can be a good option to help you delete records that are beyond what your church is interested in seeing. To run the cleanup utility, follow the steps below:
- Make a backup of your database.
- In the Contributions module, click on Utilities in the menu bar and choose “Clean-Up.”
- After confirming that a backup has been made, the window will open.
- Check the box for deleting the offerings and pledges.
- Click OK to run the utility.
- During the operation the utility will tell you how many offerings and pledges it’s deleting.
