Support non-financial gifts?

As the next version of the program is under development, the "beta testers" help by testing the new program, finding the bugs, and making comments and suggestions on the new features.

Support non-financial gifts?

It would be nice to have a way of keeping track of gifts other than money that I want to thank donors for. Could be something as simple as a letter or email, hospitality, the loan of a car, a physical present. Of course you can't just make the "gift amount" field take any text, because for some reports you want to add them up. Maybe a separate input form for non-financial gifts? To be most useful, it should integrate with the tools for keeping track of thanks, especially the Unthanked Gifts mailmerge.

For this, I would recommend using the "touches" screen.

It's flexible enough to do this, I think. And you could set a follow up reminder there so you'd remember to say "thanks."
