At least in the US the law mandates what year a donation is counted in. For a donation to count in 2020 it must either be submitted online prior to the end of 2020, be sent in an envelope which is postdated before the end of 2020 or is hand delivered to a member of the bishopric prior to the end of 2020. In no case can a donation be counted in the prior year if it isn't submitted in one of those ways before the end of the year.
For donations received by the bishopric (either by mail or by hand delivery) before the end of the year, the clerk can enter them in a batch for 2020 even after the end of the year. But that's only for donations received in the prior year. For online donations CHQ automatically assigns it to the right year.
