I'm pretty new to civiCRM and it feels like I'm missing something obvious. The tags that are in tag sets don't show up in the Find Contacts search. They show up in Advanced Search just fine. Is this just how tag sets work or is there a way to make them show up in both search options? I'm using Civi 4.6.10 in Wordpress.

  • in future questions, it would help us all to help you if you add the CiviCRM version you are using? And (if applicable) what CMS you are using it with? Dec 16, 2015 at 14:43

Matthew, welcome to the CiviCRM community.

Have a look at http://book.civicrm.org/user/organising-your-data/groups-and-tags/ - there's a section on using Tag Sets.

It does say "adding them creates an additional search field in the Basic Criteria section of the Advanced Search" indicating that they are not available in the Find Contacts search.

  • Thanks Sanjay. I had read that section, but wasn't understanding it clearly. Your clarification is exactly what I was looking for. Dec 16, 2015 at 15:50
