best way to group people in households?

A primary need we have for this household data is for snail mail. When sending mail we only send one piece per household, and the mail needs to be addressed properly (for when married couples have different last names etc). Additionally households are useful for kids in foster homes and when parents are divorced.

I've had different ideas about grouping people in households:



  • redhen organization type of household (with a relation to connect contacts to it)
  • household vocabulary and term reference field on contact

    RedHen Replaces Drupal Username with Contact Name

    This is weird. Please let me know if this is expected behavior or if I should create a bug report. If it's expected, can someone explain why?

    I am building a website for a non-profit and hoping to use RedHen. I'm trying to integrate Drupal user registration with RedHen so as to capture some RH contact info during the sign-up process. My user registration page captures fields for RH including First Name, Middle Name and Last Name and also the Drupal username.

    A test user signed up. As administrator, I approved them and the system sent the usual message:

    Link a New Contact with an organization


    I'm new to Red Hen, and I have had a lot of experience with CiviCRM, but I am ready to jump into the Red Hen flock (I raise chickens too, so it's a good match). Enough of that.

    I hope someone can help me with the following flow: A new user signs up. During registration, RedHen contact info is collected. One piece that is also collected is, using check boxes, s/he can select one or more organizations that s/he is affiliated with, and that already exist as organizations in RedHen.

    RedHen and Ubercart?

    I am looking at RedHen as an alternative to Civi on a site that is in development but not yet public. I currently have set up using Ubercart for products, but need to develop a system for paid event registration.

    If I use RH instead of Civi, I understand that I would need the Entity Registration module and a commerce module to handle paid event registrations.

    What I'm not sure about is, could I do this with Ubercart or does it have to be Drupal Commerce?

    Migrating from CiviCRM

    As a long time user of CiviCRM who has been interested in migrating to a native Drupal solution, I have a few questions about RedHen.

    there is a list of features that were being explored. Is there a roadmap that might indicate when some of these features should available? Also, what about some features like contact change logging? Recurring events? Self-service modification of event registrations (with some limits as to what and when changes can be made)? Is there a plan/timetable for a D8 version?

    Gathering contact data when a new Drupal user record is created.

    One thing that is quite easy with CiviCRM is enabling a CiviCRM "profile" (group of custom and standard fields) for use with new Drupal user account creation. Is there a way to do this with RedHen that does not require that we write custom code?

    We are interested in migrating from CiviCRM and that is one of our requirements.

    Thanks in advance.

    contacts without email address - (children as contacts)

    Hi! Wondering how (or if it's possible) to handle children without email addresses as contacts. For the site we're developing we need parents to be able to register their children for programs and events. We were planning on using CiviCRM but Redhen looks like a much more graceful solution if it can do what we need.

    RedHen CRM case studies needed

    Hi RedHen users,

    I just got back from NTEN's annual Nonprofit Technology Conference. There is a ton of interest in RedHen and a few larger nonprofits as well as a handful of larger Drupal shops interested in leveraging RedHen on large-scale Drupal-CRM projects. It's great to see RedHen gain traction and ThinkShout is very interested in supporting other developers who seek to contribute to the project.

    Evaluating for Overnight Website Challenge: Twin Cities 2013

    Hi everybody, I've been looking into RedHen's progress and there is a lot to like. I love the entity-based approach.

    I'm putting together a team of 10 Developers to compete during this year's Overnight Website Challenge in the Twin Cities: . We'll have 24 hours to make a website for a local area nonprofit and we're looking to leverage the power of RedHen + Drupal to accomplish that.

    Currently, we're in the pre-event planning phase and we're running into some confusion on how to fully use Redhen to our advantage.

    RedHen Contact names appearing site-wide

    For every Contact I have (linked to a user record), their user record is showing their FirstName LastName and ContactType from their RedHen record -- sitewide wherever their user name should be displayed.

    I do have the RealName module installed but that should be displaying fields from the user's profile fields.

    I'm not totally opposed to this feature that RedHen seems to have introduced to our site, but...

    (a) I want to know how to control it and/or disable it if I want to use RealName's settings instead; and
