It is recommended that you use categories for your members:


  • If they are intended for public or internal use and you wish to segment records into groups
  • If you wish to allow visitors to your directory, web content, events, etc. ability to filter to specific categories
  • If you wish to display the information publicly and in the Info Hub
  • If you wish to track specific information about a contact, and have it visible on the Profile tab. Similar to custom fields, but better visibility.
