Part 6. Organizing Your Life > Creating a Smart Group

Creating a Smart Group

Choose File, New Smart Group.

Type a name for the group.

Choose criteria for the group's members.

Click + to add criteria.

INTRODUCTION

You create smart groups in the Address Book, but your Mac maintains them. After you determine the criteria for a contact's inclusion in a smart group, the Mac makes sure that the right contacts are sorted into that group at all times, even after you've changed contact information or added new contacts.

What's It Good For?

Use smart groups to track contacts' birthdays, anniversaries, or other important dates; collect all contacts from a particular company into a single group; or look up which friends and family members live near your next vacation spot.


Click the box labeled Highlight Group when Updated to have Address Book highlight the group's name when it contains new members.

Click OK to create the group.

Click the group's name to see its members in the Name column.

Control-click the group's name to email its members or export their contact data.
