Library Table of Contents

susannasarahmarie 10 months ago • updated by Brad Brown (Answers in Genesis - Web Development) 10 months ago 2

I am trying to give one of my coordinators access to the assembly guide as that is her responsibility. She went on and noticed that they are not in any kind of order. Is there a way to put them in order of days?

Answer

We have corrected the issue that was mixing up the tables of contents. They should be usable, now.

Personalize Checklist

I may be missing it, but is there a way to add tasks to the checklist?

Answer

No, the checklists are not customizable. You can't add things to them.


Just to help us understand how you'd like to use the tool, what sorts of things would you like to be able to add? The more we understand about your use case, the better job we can do of updating the software to meet your needs.

Different start times of different days

Anglea 10 months ago • updated by Brad Brown (Answers in Genesis - Web Development) 9 months ago 4

On our VBS we have start Sunday Night and continue mon-thurs. morning. is there a way to put that on the website? On the main page it only looks like we can have one time frame. And we can't opt not to have that field appear. Maybe a per day hours if not the same?

Answer

It is now possible to hide the start times on your public page. When editing your public page, there is a toggle just above the times you can use to enable or disable the display of the times.

Schedule edit

Bro. Aaron 10 months ago • updated by Linda Suderman 10 months ago 4

Is there a way to edit the scheduling ourselves to create our own rotations? I ask this because we actually run three groups that are broke down in to three more groups. For Example our Pre-Primary groups is broke down into three ages that all have separate schedules. Yet all of our Pre-Primarys go to music at the same time.

Dinner

Bro. Aaron 10 months ago • updated by Arthur Lawson (Answers in Genesis - Support) 10 months ago 1

We provide a dinner prior to the start of our VBS I would like to include this in the scheduling and can not figure out how. It does not work out as a rotation seeing everyone goes there at the same time. It also is prior to our opening assembly.

Answer

The best you can do at present is make the opening assembly segment longer to accommodate for the dinner beforehand.

Thanks for the input; I'll pass your thoughts on to the rest of the team.

Grade and/or Age

Bro. Aaron 10 months ago • updated 10 months ago 2

You only allow for grades to segregate the groups. I preffer to use age becuase it is less confusing for everyone. So I would like it if both options where available.

Answer

Greetings Aaron, I am happy to report that we already offer this functionality. Navigate to the bottom-left of your screen to " Settings", click that, then click "Age Group Settings". From there, you can change the names of all your age groups.

What is Sort Order in the Volunteer Role Edit screen?

Sarah Hurley 10 months ago • updated by tgoldin84 10 months ago 2
Answer

That field controls the order that the roles are displayed on the settings page and the registration page. The lower the number, the earlier it will appear in the list.


We will be changing that in the next update. We're considering simply removing that field and always displaying the roles alphabetically. If we don't do that, we'll hide that "sort order" field and allow you to drag and drop the roles into the order you choose. We're trying to find the right balance between simplicity and flexibility. If you have an opinion about whether or not it is useful to be able to manually control the order these fields appear, let us know.
