You can customize the Donations Tab to have the Donation Details be the default tab.
Go to any donor profile and click on the Customize link at the top right
Click on the "Tabs" tab
Click on 'Donations' on the left (do not uncheck it, just click on the word Donations)
You will then see the sub-tabs listed
Click on the Donation Details option (do not uncheck it, just click on the words Donation Details)
Click on the Up button to move that option to the top
Now click on the Donations Tab in the Donor Profile - Donation Details will now be the tab that opens first.
***NOTE- this customization will need to be done by each GiftWorks user if you have more than one User Account.
