What is a Property?

A Property is a label that can be applied to a Person, a Group, or a Family. Separate sets of Properties are defined for the three different record types, and new properties can be created as need. A record can be assigned an unlimited number of Properties.

Additionally, Properties can have values which contain information related to that Property. For example, a Property for a Person record might be “Hospitalized.” A person with this Property is currently in the hospital, and the value of this Property could contain the name of the hospital and the room number.

How do I know what Properties have been assigned?

On the Person, Family, or Group View, you'll find a section called “Assigned Properties” in which will be listed all the Properties assigned to that Person, Family or Group along with the Property Values, if supported by that Property.
