Keyword search - Contacts

You can filter your contact list by entering a keyword or phrase. Only those records that match the word or phrase will be displayed.

Members are listed on the Members module while all contacts (which includes members, donors, email subscribers, etc.) are listed on the Contacts module. You can search for members from either module, using simple or complex search criteria.

You can use a keyword search to filter the contacts you want to email, export, or archive.

In the  Search  field, start typing the word or phrase you want to find.

Only those records that display the word or phrase on the contact list will appear in the list. Information displayed elsewhere will not be searched.

The records are automatically sorted by last name. If the last name is missing, then records will be sorted by first name, then organization, and finally by member ID (aka User ID).

Your entire contact list is searched, but only 100 records are displayed at a time. You can use the Paging drop-down list to view additional results.
