You can add or delete any voting preference by selecting Classification Codes from the Argenta main menu on the left hand 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 "Voting Preferences."

 

 

This will bring you into the full listing of your voting preferences. Next you will choose "Add New."

 

 

This will open a screen for you to add a new voting preference.

 

 

Choose a name for your preference and click "Add This Classification Code" to add this new preference to your list.

Above the list is a records total that displays the total of all items currently displayed in the list. This is a quick and easy way to count list items.

Search The List
All classification code lists can be searched by the code’s title. Enter the title of the code you are looking for into the search field to search the 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 your data anyway you want by exporting it to Excel. Every List in Argenta has an “Export To Excel” button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.

To Remove A Voting Preference

In the voting preference list, click the corresponding “Delete” button to remove the voting preference from Argenta. Voting preference's that are already in use cannot be deleted. You will receive an alert indicating that you cannot delete the voting preference because it has been used to classify a Constituent. If you still want to delete it, you can find the Constituents associated with it and reclassifying all associated Constituents, then trying again to delete it.
