The content section is a series of options that you can turn on or off. Options that are turned off will not appear in the directory.

Option Description
Children's Names Controls if children's names (if any) are to be printed. Note that if this option is on, adult children's name will not be printed separately. Normally, adult children's names are printed separately from their parent.
Include Address Controls if the directory includes the address line.
Use Full Address Normally printed address include details up to Suburb name. This is usually sufficient for reports. To use the address for posting (e.g. creating mail address), the complete address would be required. In such cases, select this checkbox to produce full address line.
Include Email Controls if the directory includes the email address line (if any).
Include Hidden Records Determines if member records marked as "hidden from directory" (see Member details) are to be printed in the directory.
