A little splash of colour

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” [Genesis 9:12-13 NIV] 

Contact List

Colour helps bring a little clarity to a long list of names. Notice the difference between the list with colour (left), or not (right).


Quick tips about the Contact list colours:

  • Right-click inside the contact list to Color Code the Contact List. Using the TNT Phase, this makes financial partners Green and Not Interested/Never Ask Gray.
  • Go to Tools | Options | Contacts to turn on/off the strikethrough for the “Not Interested” TNT Phase
  • The coloured Status Dot will always appear whether colour is on or off
  • The “Undeliverable” newsletter preference will always be red… because not communicating with your partners is a very bad thing!

Unreviewed Account Info

In the Name & Address bar and/or Address box, you will see contact info Bold & Orange when your information in TNT does not match what your organization has for this partner AND you have not told TNT which one you want to keep.


By default, TNT always chooses YOUR data over your organization’s info (the assumption is that you know your partners better than the ministry office does).

A bold/orange address is a hyperlink, so click on it to see the disparity—then you can choose which one to keep. (Or, select Lookup | Unreviewed Account Info to see all contacts like this.)

Note: TNT does NOT automatically update donor addresses or even automatically download them from your organization. YOU have to initiate the address check using Tools | Update Donor Info.

Note: If your ministry does not link directly to TntConnect, you can quickly and easily enter gifts every week or month. Learn more here.
