MPDX Quick Reference Guide: Contacts
The Contacts Tab
To do a search for a specific contact, click and start typing a name in the Search Contacts box.
Three Contact ViewsThere are three ways to view your list of contacts: List View, Flows View, and Map View. MPDX defaults to the List View.
List View: This view is helpful for seeing a filtered list of your contacts, editing contacts in bulk, and preparing mailing lists.
Flows View: This view is helpful for creating a visual of your contacts by status type (i.e. Contact for Appointment, Partner - Prayer, Partner - Financial, Ask in Future, etc.) and moving contacts through an MPDⓇ “workflow.”
Map View: This view is helpful for creating a visual of contacts who live in a particular city, region or metro area. This can be useful when planning an MPDⓇ trip to connect with ministry partners.
