Managing default privacy settings for your Address Book contacts
You can set the default public communication settings (privacy settings) that are assigned when new contacts are added to your Address Book. You can, of course, change the settings from the defaults on a contact-by-contact basis, and even make bulk changes to tagged groups of contacts or the entire Address Book - see related support article "Managing your My ChurchSuite communication options for large groups of contacts"
Setting default communication settings (privacy settings)
Head in to the "Address Book" module settings (the cog-wheels in the top right corner of the module). You'll need Manage module or Administrator permissions to do this. On the module options tab, scroll down to the "Contact Communication" section. Here you can set the defaults that contacts will automatically be assigned when you add or import contacts into ChurchSuite.
Remember to save your changes before navigating away from the module settings page.
