Adding Activities

Postby thasten » Thu May 12, 2016 5:43 pm

Hello,

I am new to PC and still trying to figure things out. I have a question about adding an activities to a member. I want to add when they are here for Sunday Service (activity #10). When I go to Fast Data Entry and put the date and click ok, I get an error message. The message says No Records were found for Activity 10. I know there are no records, I am trying to add the records and the system isn't letting me. What am I doing wrong.

Thanks,
Theresa

Take a look on the Maintain Activity/Skill Descriptions screen under Membership > Activities & Skills > Setup. Use the Locate button if necessary to bring up your activity #10.

There is a check box option labeled "Record attendance". If that is unchecked, that activity will not show up in Attendance reports or data entry screens.

Thanks for responding. I looked and the box is checked and I still get the error message. Is there something else I can try?

Fast Data Entry is the screen you use to enter attendance once you have added the member TO the activity.

What you need to do is to head to Membership -> Activities & Skills -> Maintain List of Attenders and add all the people you want to track in that activity TO the activity first. Then when you bring up the Fast Data Entry you will be given the list of all people assigned to that activity.
