If not, how are you including DAF Direct widget or link, Freewill, ect on your website donation page so that the information is easy for both the donor (one click type interaction) and for the donor's information to flow into Raider's Edge's database (not having to take the information from one site and enter the information into the donor management software which takes time and can lead to user error)
