Would it be possible to add a selection for printing name tags on Avery 5160 labels? We use those as our go to labels. Also I don't see a button to export the registration data, am I missing that? We send out a mailing after VBS and find that field very useful.

Answer

The ability to export your data to a CSV file is now available. There is a button on the Student and Volunteer pages.

I just Printed the Team Roster from the Manage Student Page. A couple of questions/concerns. First - and most important, I have a child registered with medical concerns but NO WHERE on the team roster does it indicate that. I feel is we are using that to keep track of teams allergy and medical information should be present on that. I haven't been able to find where that information imprinted so I can give that to team leaders and classroom teachers.


Also, we don't use all the check boxes for those purposes. Is there a way to customize them?

I would like to be able to add more than just the date and location to the VBS web site and I can't edit the one paragraph that is pre-written.

Answer

That paragraph is editable. Just go to the Edit Public Page option under "Promote." You can type whatever you want in that section.


There is a known issue that is being corrected in the next update. The save button doesn't appear when you make changes only to the content section. You'll also need to change something else to get the save button to appear. An easy option is to flip the "Show video on public page" toggle back and forth to trigger the save button to appear at the top.

Our church has moved away from grade grouping to age groupings. We also include preschool in our VBS. Is there any way I can create teams to meet my criteria?

Answer

Absolutely. You can change the age groups to be whatever you want. Just go to into the settings section (there's a link at the bottom of the left menu) and select "Age Group Settings." You can rename the existing groups, delete any you don't need, and add whatever additional ones you do. You also can reorder them by dragging the icon at the left of each age group field.


Once you have your age groups defined, you'll probably want to go to the "Team Settings" to be sure ages are being assigned to teams the way you want,

I added my coworker as a coordinator for our VBS, but once she went through the process of making an account, she has no access to the event. I resent the invite, but it still isn't working.

Oklahoma still does not show up after "Meno," on the webpage https://newhopedale.myanswers.com/operation-arctic/ and it still says "Select state" not Oklahoma on the drop down box on the "Manage Organization" page. Thanks for looking at this.

Answer

The site should now properly support holding your event at a different address than the church. The setting is controlled under Event Settings.
