Add tags to individual contacts by selecting a tag or clicking +Add in the Contact Tags section.

Click Save when you are done adding a contact.

Bulk Add Contact Tags

You can also add Contact Tags to multiple contacts at once using the Bulk Add Contact Tags… tool.

In Contacts, click on Tools and a drop down menu will appear.

Choose Bulk Add Contact Tags….

Click Select all (you can deselect any contacts you don’t want to include or hold shift to select a range)

Select the contact tag(s) you would like to add or click +Add to add new tags.

Then click Add Contact Tags. (The number that appears in the Add Contact Tags button refers to the number of contacts that tags are being added to.)

NOTE: Tags can be added to a maximum of 150 contacts at a time. Repeat the process to add tags to the remaining contacts.

    Can I make a member inactive?

    1. Barbara

      I think I just answered my own question. I made a contact tag labeled “Inactive Member” and removed the “Member” designation from all those who haven’t paid their annual dues. Would that be the best solution? I think it will work for me.

        That’s one way to do it! 🙂

  4. How to I transfer contacts from one fiscal year to the next?

    1. Cyndi Meuchel

      Hi Laura,

      In order to copy contacts from a prior year, your Contacts area must not already have any contacts in it. I can see 1 contact there right now. If you were to delete that contact, you would then see a button to Copy Contacts from a prior year.

    I copied my contacts from 2019 to 2020. If I delete a contact in 2020 Financial Year, will there information stay for previous years or will all their data disappear?

    1. Cyndi Meuchel

      Yes! Contacts records are stored by year. So you can delete a copied one in 2020 without having to worry that it will disappear in 2019. Try one and see! It means that your 2019 Contact list will stay intact and that your 2020 Contact list doesn’t need to carry forward Contacts (forever) that don’t apply anymore. It’s a handy feature. Hope that helps.

    Should a husband and wife have a single address be listed as one contact, or as two separate contacts? If they are listed as one contact, can notifications go to both email addresses? If two separate contacts are made, would one have to be marked as not having dues?

    1. Teri McIntyre

      You will want to create just one Contact account for husband and wife. You have the ability to add as many email addresses as you would like. When you are ready to send a statement, Bulk emailing will only be sent to the primary email address. However, you do have the ability to go in to the Member Activity for the Contact you would like to send a second statement to. Go to Member Activity > compose statement. You will now see, near the top of the screen, all email addresses associated with this contact account. You can click on the email address you would like to send a statement to and then click on send statement. Let us know if we can help with anything else!

    Can the search function be extended to search by address in addition to name?

    1. Teri McIntyre

      MoneyMinder has the ability to search for name. However, you can use your computer search command (CommandF for Mac users and CtrlF on all other platforms). A search box will appear in the upper right hand corner of your screen and you can enter the address. When there is a match it will highlight.
