Mailing Labels from Contact list

i would l to be able to create various lists from the contact table. I want to pull out Vendor contacts. I want to be able to create Mailing Labels for Christmas Cards. Separate list for Newsletters, etc. Can I use the Field “External ID” to do this. I want to create four or five “IDs” and then be able to sort on this field.


The correct way is probably to setup Mailing Groups. Check out the Segmentation tab of the Contact Card.

What you are asking for is exactly what the “Segments” in the Marketing module is providing.

Together with the mailing groups you can draw lists of customers/vendors or just other contacts.

So you cannot / shouldn’t draw the lists directly from the contact list but use the functions provided in the marketing module as this also provides activity histories to later analyze which contact has been part of which mailing.
