That's it, you're finished. 

The CCB integration will work in the background. Here's what will happen during the integration: 
  1. Individuals will be downloaded from CCB into your Dime Giving database. Our integration will try to match individuals with donors that are already in your Dime Giving database. 
  2. Any donors that are in Dime Giving but not in CCB will be uploaded into your CCB database. 
  3. Transactions will be downloaded from CCB into your Dime Giving database as donations. 
  4. Donations that haven't been matched will be uploaded into CCB as contributions. 
From now on, whenever you enter a new donor or donation in Dime Giving, it will be uploaded into CCB, and vice versa.
