4th option for importing existing data at Welcome

Postby toddho » Sat Mar 19, 2016 3:57 pm

On the "Welcome to the Donor Manager" dialog, there are currently 3 options:

- This is a new installation...
- I have existing data in DM5...
- I have information in another program

I wish there was a 4th option:

- I wish to restore data from an existing DM6 backup file

That would save me re-entering the general information, like: name, organization, address

Thanks for your consideration...

[By the way, I hadn't seen the DM website for quite a while - it looks really great! 8) ]

Good suggestion.

Actually, though, you don't need to re-enter any of the information.

Just skip through that "who are you" screen to get to the main menu.

Then when you do the restore (from a backup or a pack and go) it will fill in that data for you from the backup.
