Return To The Knowledge Base

Counties can be attached to your constituent addresses. Counties are considered a classification code within Argenta. Your iteration of Argenta will need to have your organizations county list added, or you can add them as you go.
 
 
You can add or delete any county by selecting Classification Codes from the Argenta main menu on the left side of the screen.
 
 
 
 
This will bring you into the full listing of all customizable classification codes that are within Argenta. From here you will choose "Counties" from the codes listed.
 
 
 
 
 
This will show you your list of Counties. From here choose the "Add New" button to add a new County.
 
 
 
 
This will open the, Add A New County, where you will enter a name for your new county.
 
 
 
Enter a name for your new county and then click the "Add This Classification Code" button to add the new county to your list.

Export The List to Excel
Argenta contains many reports, charts, graphs, and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can work with you data anyway you want by exporting it into Excel. Every list in Argenta has an "Export To Excel" button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed into Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the resulting records from the filter will be exported.

In the County list, click the corresponding "Delete" button to remove the county from your list. Counties that are already in use cannot be deleted. You will receive an alert indicating that you cannot delete the County because it has been used to classify an Address. If you still want to delete it, you must find the related constituent address records using the county, reclassifying those records, then try again to delete the county.
