Basic Components of CiviCRM
Contacts are the important components of CiviCRM. There are generally three types of contacts – individual, household and organization, and each contact contains information like:
- Title, first name, last name, nickname
- Contact number, email, website
- Physical addresses
- Contact preferences
CiviCRM also allows you to create and define custom contact types.
Relationships are a way to link two contacts with each other. Alongside nearly 14 types of relationships that can be defined in CiviCRM, you can also create custom relationship types based on your requirements.
Activities are the core concept of CiviCRM. They are meant to record interactions between the clients and organizations at any instant of time. This feature of CiviCRM is widely used in tracking activities like member registrations, email subscriptions, record donations, even attendance and soon. You can also create custom activity types based on the tasks that your organization performs.
Groups are a very useful component to distinguish two or more members that play common roles or perform common activities. For instance,a managing board of members can be declared as a group. Groups are also necessary if you have a list of email subscribers. Creating a group of all and then sending the email to all at once will reduce your efforts to a great extent. Groups can also be useful for managing access control. You can assign different access controls to different groups rather than assigning access to individual member.
