What is a Member?

In Neon, a membership is a transaction that is a property of an account. An account is only considered a "member" in Neon if that account has an active membership.  

Adding a Membership

Adding a constituent account to your NeonCRM is NOT the same as adding a membership. The only way that NeonCRM distinguishes between accounts within the system are between individuals and organizations. Adding a membership transaction to an account is what makes the person a "member."

You can add a membership to an account in two ways:

  1. Create a new account and add a membership at the same time. 
  2. Add a new membership to an existing account. 

You can add a new individual or organization member from the Membership tab. This allows you to create an account and a membership at the same time. 

Alternatively, you can add a membership to an account that already exists in NeonCRM. Navigate to the account that you wish to add a membership to. Scroll down to the Membership History section of their account page,and click the New Membership button.

Membership Settings

Membership Settings are the same no matter how you are entering the membership - with a new record or into an existing record. This is the Membership Settings screen:


Membership Term

The membership level the constituent should receive. These are set up in System Settings> System Settings Home> Membership Settings> Membership.
