When querying on memberships, there is an option for Current or History of a membership. Users would like to understand the difference between the two options.
The current membership refers to the most recent transaction (joined, renewed, rejoined) on a membership regardless of status (dropped, active, lapsed). If the current membership has been dropped, the standing field will be dropped but it is still current.
The history membership refers to the prior transactions on a membership regardless of status. The status on the history transactions will reflect the status on the current transaction.
