1 Think of an at­tribute Se­lect a con­tact and click the + un­der its de­tails on the right. Note the ex­tra fields that are avail­able to add to it. Think of a way you’d like to group peo­ple that isn’t ad­dressed by these fields, then click inside your con­tact’s Note field.

2 Add it to the Note field We’re go­ing to cre­ate a group for Mac­For­mat mag­a­zine. For each con­tact we want to in­clude, we add to the Note field ‘Mag­a­zine: Mac­For­mat’ (with­out quotes). You can type any­thing, but be con­sis­tent with word­ing and gram­mar.

3 Group by note con­tents Make a Smart Group, set it to check the Note field con­tains the same text you used in step 2, then click OK. You could adapt this to group friends who also have chil­dren to make the task of send­ing out party in­vi­ta­tions eas­ier, for ex­am­ple.
