I was asked recently if there was a way to find all members who have the 'Status Override' setting turned on. I didn't see an option in the advanced search or member search:

Find Memberships

As an alternative, I made a smart group that finds all Primary Members that have a Membership Status of "Current" and a membership End Date in the past (e.g. "Prior to previous day"). This should find all memberships that are hard-coded as "Current" although they are technically expired (right?) but is not actually finding all overridden memberships.

Is there a way to search on whether the membership status is overridden, regardless of what the status is?

CiviCRM has a search builder and the field Override status is available in the search builder.

  • Andrew, I'll give the answer to Jaap since he beat you by a few seconds. ;) Somehow I spaced out on the Search Builder -- thanks for the reminder.

Search Builder will do this. Select Membership Status Override = Yes and it'll return the contacts with that.


Yes, there is in 4.7/master. I submitted CRM-17364 with patches, but an alternative/tidier patch was accepted into master only.

  • It doesn't make sense to refer to a patch. And it doesn't make sense to refer to a version which is not even released Dec 1, 2015 at 16:17

    It lets them know that it's coming at least!
