The CRS data comes from CRS tables.
Other data is stored in a Google ctrack spreadsheet.
d-portal attempts to only reflect what is in the data and does not make corrections to data or information published to IATI, with only small exceptions to make the site user-friendly*

Not using either Disbursements or Expenditure in transaction type field.
Dates in incorrect format in the data.
Illogical dates such as activity end date before activity start date.
No data relevant to the year being viewed on a pie chart or table (eg where a pie chart shows 2016 data and data published only relates to 2015).
If updating your Registry profile only, changes will show after the weekly full import (each weekend) as d-portal only updates nightly the data that has been changed in the xml.
Dashes show that that donor/organisation is not currently an IATI publisher.
CRS data is downloaded annually and then stored in ctrack.
