Mark the Constituent is inactive checkbox to temporarily or permanently suspend a record. This would be used in the event that the organization can no longer contact the donor but wishes to keep them in the database. The program does not recognize the constituent as active until you unmark the checkbox, allowing you to retain the record information without including it in processes such as mailings and reports.

When a constituent record is marked as inactive, you have the ability to include or exclude them from mailings, exports, queries and reports. You can also eliminate them from the search screen by unmarking the option to Display Inactive Constituents.
