You can use attributes on people records for descriptors like "Donor," "Staff," "Volunteer," and many other things. Your people attributes can be configured from Configuration (General Shelter > Processing > Attribute Manager.)


There are a handful of system-generated attributes for your use that you cannot edit or delete. These include:

  • "Foster (active)" - automatically added to people records when they have a foster animal in their care
  • "Willing Foster"
  • "Warning! -- Safety Note"
  • "Do Not Adopt"

You can add attributes to a person's record using the "Attributes" tab on the record.



You can filter the main People tab on the home screen using people attributes.



You can also use attributes as a rule and/or customized column on the person entity custom report.



If you'd like to add your own custom attributes like 'shy dog foster' or 'bottle baby kittens,' see Where can I add statuses and attributes?
