Activity Types

Table of Contents   Previous Page  Next Page    

Activity Types enable you to quickly identify certain kinds of activities, by using types like "Fundraiser", "Party", "Luncheon", etc.

An activity type is not required for every activity, therefore you are allowed to delete a type that is in use.  If you choose to delete the record even after being prompted that it is in use, the value will be cleared on any records that were using it.
