MPDX Status, MPD Phase

An MPDX Status is used to track how your contacts progress through each MPD phase and how they will partner with you in your ministry.

Status includes:

  • Status Type, i.e. Partner - Financial.
  • Commitment Type and Amount, i.e. $35.00 Monthly.
  • Commitment Received (yes or no).

  • The Financial Status (colored dot) indicates whether the commitment is:
    • On Time - Green
    • 0 to 30 days Late - Gray
    • 30 to 60 Days Late - Gold
    • 60 or More Days Late - Red

Change Status for Multiple Contacts

You can also change statuses of multiple contacts at one time. To do so, follow these steps:

  • Click on Actions button and then Edit Field.

  • Locate the Status field and click the dropdown arrow,

Note: A contact's status affects multiple things within MPDX. One of these is the MPD monthly progress bar.

Monthly Status Bar

The Monthly Status Bar is based on the monthly financial goal set in Preferences. This status bar is located on the Dashboard in the Monthly Goal section.

  • Contacts with Partner-Financial status and Gifts Started are displayed in gold.
  • Contacts with Partner-Financial status with Committed (not started) giving are displayed as Commitments outlined in goal. 
  • One-time gifts or commitments will not show up in this bar and those contacts should be labeled as Partner-Special.
Is It Possible to Assign More Than One Status to a Contact?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to assign more than one status to a contact at a time. However there are other options to accomplish this function.
