Editing Contact Information

Postby H4H » Mon Mar 14, 2011 12:08 pm

We cannot figure out how to edit contact information on the Contact page in CiviCRM under the Main Address field. How do we access that field?

  1. Search for the contact, for example "Conrad"
  2. Go to the result page for your search
  3. Under Conrad's name, there are 3 buttons: "Actions", "Edit", and "Delete"
  4. Click on the "Edit" button
  5. Scroll down the page, the 4th collapsed fieldset from the bottom is "Address"
  6. Click on "Address" to expand the fieldset, do your edit, and "Save"

I tried to delete a name from Harford County Public Library by following your instructions, I was unable to delete the name Vanessa Milio from the main address.

Yes, I didn't think that my answer was going to be anything new.

I checked the record, and the only way that I could see to remove the name was by going into the DB. Could not find a way in the GUI to remove the name. So it is now cleaned up.

Not sure how it got in there. Perhaps during the data import. If you find any more names in the 'Main address', let me know directly--not on the forum.

And don't forget to use the 'relationship' functionality to connect an existing individual with another individual, a household, or an organization (something you are already doing, just a reminder).

I am still having a problem getting the contact info in the main address to change. Fallston United Methodist Church; I am trying to change the contact name to Rev. John Campbell from Rev. Ditto.
