Contacts, Tasks owned by Inactive Users. Task and Contact Records owned by Inactive Users.

The Conversion Utility does not move Cases – so after the Converter is completed, those cases still reference those One-to-One Accounts. Run this report to identify which case these are.
Deb first wanted to understand why she should upgrade to NPSP 3. She started researching in the Power of Us Hub. What excited her the most were some of the new tools available in NPSP 3: Health Check, multiple/seasonal addresses, automatic address copying between contacts and household, and improved grant management.
Why Convert Your Account Model?
Deb learned in her research that the NPSP 3 includes a new Account Model called the Household Account (HA). Wanting to make an informed decision about converting to this new model from the one-to-one model, she turned to the Hub. She arrived at two main reasons why a conversion would be beneficial.
Following the sage advice of all those who came before her, she started with a Sandbox. She entered a little data, upgraded the packages, and ran the health check. She had no errors! Then, she updated her production instance and ran the Health Check again. There were a few items that needed to be fixed prior to converting to the HA Model.
Household Account Model Conversion
After installing the NPSP 3 packages, her next big step was to convert to the HA Model. Database Sherpa provided her a framework of tasks which included data cleanup tasks, reports to create and steps to migrate the data from production to the sandbox.
Benefits to CLF
Deb has already begun to see the benefits for her organization. Reporting for mailing lists is much easier. Development staff are able to enter and track grants easier. Donation tracking is more straightforward. There are fewer steps to ensure addresses are accurate between household members.

I know it’s old, but I don’t feel like this has gotten much love, so I just wanted to echo. I’m not sure if this is the same as #346 or not. My experience:

Aaand after having looked for a while, I just found the little workaround with “self”. For anybody else struggling here: if you make the Company “self,” on conversion, Salesforce will create a Household account as you’d expect, rather than a Company account. Even so, I stand by my feedback:
kbromer commented on Nov 29, 2014
Agreed on the issues you’ve identified @bhalpern
A complete rewrite of the NPSP lead conversion interface and backend process is on the roadmap for this FY (here’s a quick blog post by a Foundation partner outlining the high-level roadmaps for both Foundation products this FY: http://cloud4good.com/announcements/npsp-ngo-connect-product-roadmaps/) I’m guessing we’ll start that project after the new year at some point, likely in the mid-winter/early-spring time frame based on the current load..
bhalpern commented on Nov 29, 2014
Thanks @kbromer for the helpful response! I’ll stay tuned, and will wait to implement Leads in my org until this is complete.
