User ID (aka Member ID)
When a new contact is added to your database, they are automatically assigned a unique number called User ID (aka Member ID). This number is generated by the system and cannot be modified (even via import). It will continue to be used to identify the contact until the contact record is deleted.
When importing contacts in bulk from a spreadsheet, Wild Apricot will use the User ID (or email) to match the records being imported with existing contacts. If the User ID already exists, the existing contact record will be updated with the information being imported. Otherwise, a new record is created.
Both the contact and administrators can view the User ID.
Administrators can view the User ID from the contact details screen.
Contacts can view their User ID from their member profile.
