After you create and save a card, you can make changes to it if needed in the Card Designer. You can also add fields to a pre-designed card.

 To edit a saved card
  1. Under Advanced Tools, click the Settings tab.
  2. In the drop-down list, select Edit Connection Cards and click Go .
  3. In the Card Designer window, click Open Card .
  4. In the Open Card window, select the card you want to open from the Card Name drop-down list, then click OK.
  5. Make the necessary changes to the card.
  6. Click Save Card . You have two options for saving the card:
    • To save the card as a separate, new card, enter a different name in the Card Name field. This preserves the original card as it was before the changes and creates a new card with the changes under a different name. For example, if you have a basic Bread Ministry card but sometimes need a card with additional information on it, you can modify the basic Bread Ministry card and save it under the name Bread Ministry 2. Then you will have the original, basic card named Bread Ministry, and the new, modified card named Bread Ministry 2.
    • To save the card as an updated version (all future uses of the card will have the changes on them), do not change the name in the Card Name field. For example, if you want to make permanent changes to your Deacon Contact card, you can edit the card and save it under the same name. All your future Deacon Contact cards will reflect the changes.
  7. Click OK. If you are updating the card without changing the name, a confirmation box displays to let you know the card already exists. When prompted to overwrite the existing card, click Yes.
