Maintaining Involvement Information

This section provides an overview of involvement and discusses how to:

  • Add involvement records.

  • Filter involvement records.

  • Create an involvement roster.

The Involvement component of Contributor Relations enables you to maintain information about a constituent's activities, affiliations, interests, and awards and honors. When you create an involvement record, you identify the involvement type, a description of the involvement, a category such as charitable or political, an institution, and start and end dates.
