I can't seem to see the variable for adjusting a person from church member to new person via the api.
It would be great to be able to add "new people" or add contacts via the API straight up , but I can't see how to do that.
Does anyone know how?
For adjusting a person from church member to a new person, you'll need to add a 'category_id' of the people category for the person to be updated into. See our People Edit API docs for more info.
As for creating new people, here's some docs on how to do this too.
