Group Types

Table of Contents   Previous Page  Next Page    

Each group record can be assigned a specific "type."  The group type can be especially helpful to categorize similar groups.

For example, a common use of group records is for committees. A group record is a convenient way to group members together in a way that can be easily used on search windows. So if groups have been renamed to "Committees", you might setup group types for "Fundraising", "Social Planning", etc. Then you can easily find all of  the members on the committee by simply using that group name and type as search criteria.
