In the dialog when I Accept changes from the CCC donor info, I change the phone location to Home2. The button changes from Overwrite to Add, but it still puts it in the default field and overwrites what was there.

I like the new Gift download button, and the new Google Maps button.

Thanks, Bob and Jason.

Mike, I'll get that fixed in TntMPD 3.0.3.  I'm so glad you discovered that bug and reported it!

Bob and or Troy,

I am doing my first MailChimp Sync in TNTMPD.

I have several questions about how to get each contact with the correct newsletter option.

First, what is the meaning of Paper (w/ email backup) intended to mean?

Next, I have a large list of people I email the newsletter to from Mailchimp.

How I can get all the people I send email newsletters to from Mailchimp to have the Email Only marked in TNTMPD in version 3.0?

Also as a follow up on the newsletter options in TNTMPD.

Can you add the different options to the "Group Actions" menu in "Mass Change a Field" option? Currently it only allows for True or False.

Nicholas, "Paper (w/ email backup)" means that you'd prefer to send a paper newsletter, but if their mailing address ever becomes undeliverable, you'll use their email as a backup (until you discover their new address).  In contrast, "Paper Only" means that if their mailing address becomes undeliverable you don't send them an email even if they have an email address.

In the "Mass Change a Field", you can also change the field "Newsletter Media Preference".

With MailChimp, the new default is to only sync with contacts in TntMPD that receive an email newsletter (the alternative is to sync anyone who even "allows email" ... i.e. not "Paper Only")  If there are still emails in MailChimp that fall outside this criteria, you can import them into TntMPD.  The "Import Action" tells you what this means for each email address.  It might mean adding a new contact, marking an email address as preferred, or it might mean changing the newsletter media preference to allow/prefer an email address.

After you sync w/ MailChimp, if you synced w/ the option to only "Sync Email Newsletter Recipients", then you could [Lookup | Newsletter Recipients | Receives EMAIL Newsletter] to see all the contacts synced w/ MailChimp.  Theb, you could mass change the "Newsletter Media Preference" to "Email Only" if you wanted.  If you have any financial partners in that lookup, however, you might want to set them to "Email (w/ paper backup)".

> Email (w/ paper backup)

oh it would be sooooooo cool if Tnt would actually send the newsletter itself and use the bouces to switch that automatically to paper ;)

that will be a feature in TntMPD 4.0 :D

New 4.0 features? How about the "Auto Generate New Referrals from Existing Contacts" button? Perhaps it could use the integrate White and Google Maps to do it... :)
