Candidates have at least 2 records in the system, a Candidate Record, and an Individual Record. When a candidate is entered, both records are created in the system, unless an Individual Record can be found. If the Individual Record is found, it will be updated with current information (address, phone, etc).
Use the Search Article to find and edit people, candidates, and affiliates.
Activities and Notes for the campaign can be found by Saving or Canceling the Edit session, or by clicking View from the Search results. Then select the appropriate tab.

Candidates can be exported to a spreadsheet. After the search comes back with a list of candidates, select all or just the ones you want. Then select Export from the Action dropdown. Select Custom fields and then the CO_Candidates model. Click Export.
