We are looking into sending out a mailing to our new contacts every once in a while. There does not seem to be a date associated with the creation of the contact record that would let me know when new contact was added. I did notice that there is a "Contact ID" field. This looks to me as if it might be incremented as contacts are added. I realize that a contact might be a volunteer or an adopter or whatever. That does not matter for our purpose. My thought is that I could run a report on the contacts in the system at this time and do a mailing. If I note the highest value of the "Contact ID" and then maybe 6 months from now generate the same report and only mail the contacts with a "Contact ID" greater that the last one noted, then that should work??
Save a Stray Medical,
Yes, your plan should work. Although it's not guaranteed, it should allow you to see which contacts were added since the date you noted the highest ID.
