Handy Hints – PastPerfect Rename List A

Within Contacts of PastPerfect there are several ‘ready-made’ sections:

Membership, Volunteers, Docents (Tour Guides), Donors (Monetary) and more.

There is also two main lists – A List and B List.  Many museums use these for different categories.  In my experience, I have seen several organizations use the A List and B List for their Artifact Donors and Artifact Lenders.

Did you know that you can change/update this name label for these Lists?  For instance – A List can be changed to Lenders.

It’s simple:

Select Setup, Custom Fields, Contacts – on the right hand side you’ll see A List and B List. Here you can over-type and rename the label. You can use up to 12 digits. Be warned, however, from the main Contacts Page, only the first 10 letters are shown. It is a good idea to choose the new name with this in mind.
