We are new to CiviCRM and have consulted both this forum and the book + videos. Still at a loss for a solution.
We have multiple publications with different people titles associated with it. (e.g. Publication A + Editor, Author, Reviewer, etc.). The titles can also be connected in another way (e.g. Editor + Publication A, Publication B, Publication C).
We attempted to set up smart groups with the Title + Publication (A,B,C) but then when we wanted to create a second smart group with Title2 + Publication (C,B,A) and have it connect to a mailing list, it said "error- that group already exists."
Q - How do we achieve the need of having to connect these titles and publications using groups or memberships?
Q - Can memberships be a smart group?
Q - Do we make Publications as a group, and Titles as a membership? Or use fields for one or the other?
Thanks in advance.
