commented on Add ability to tag user when they complete a path
Given you can already filter for people who’ve completed a specific path, and you can view a person’s complete path history under [Signup] > Paths, I’m curious to learn you’d want to further duplicate that logged data in tag form? In other words, what underlying needs would a tag meet that aren’t met by the filter and path view?

commented on Choosing fields in Export
In the meantime, there is one workaround which may help reduce some of that spreadsheet cleanup work:

- Navigate to Finances > More > Export Donations, then click “NGP” (next to “Past Exports”)
- Click “Export Donations”

The export generated from the NGP view will include all donations since your last export from this view, and the CSV will only contain 34 key fields related to the donation/donor. That format is technically designed for compatibility with a 3rd party compliance software vendor used by many political customers in the US — but it may get you where you need to be.

commented on Issues with event filtering
Totally see the value of adding some sort of “relative date range” criteria for events. In the meantime, Michelle, I think there’s a more streamlined workflow you could use moving forward:

Create a catch-all tag for events during a given date range (e.g. “Event-Attendee-2018”, or “Event-Attendee-Q1 2018”), and then configure all your future events to automatically add that tag to folks when they RSVP or are marked as having attended.

And, so that you/your team don’t have to remember to add that tag whenever a new event is created — you could just set that up at the Calendar-level by navigating to Calendar Settings > Event Settings, checking the “Enable event settings for this calendar page” box, then entering the desired tag(s) there. Then, when the time period elapses (e.g. it’s a new year, or new quarter), you just need to update that configuration.

That way, rather than having to add separate criteria for every event you’ve organized in the last 12 months, you can just use a single “Tags” criteria. Hope that helps!
