If a donor pays more than the expected amount, you have the choice to treat the overpayment as an additional general gift or have it apply to the next payment due. The default is to apply it towards the next payment due. You will see the overpayment amount applied to the next row on the schedule.

 If you’d like to create an additional general gift instead, select “yes” in the “Treat overpayment as General Donation” field. Any amount in excess of the amount due will be created as a new general gift.
