How To Configure The Progress Bar In A Campaign To Use Historic Giving

The Progress bar that shows in the Campaign detail page when a Goal Amount is set, by default, is getting the data from Contributions. However, this can be configured so it gets the data from Historic Giving instead. This is useful for cases where gifts towards the project are imported manually as historic gifts.
