CAN I EDIT THE INFO ON THE TEAM ROSTER? I NEED TO HAVE A PICK UP PERSON FOR EACH STUDENT

Answer

Yes, you can edit the info on the team roster by going to People -> Students -> Manage All Students. You can customize the registration forms to add a custom field, if desired, under Settings -> Forms.

Answer

No, the current functionality is very limited. It is only possible to make changes to the current day's attendance records. There isn't currently a way to make changes or corrections to previous days. We will be adding additional functionality over time, but wanted to get something available as quickly as possible.

Our VBS just completed, and I was wondering if there was a way to track decisions that were made during our VBS. On previous programs that we've used, there has been an option on each child's profile that has a "decision made" field and the options matched the decision form that we gave the children. Is there a way to do that in this program? thanks

Answer

Yes, there is a way to track that here. Go to Settings -> Forms -> Student Information -> Add Form Field -> Create and populate the "Decision Made" form field and make sure the "Hide this field on public registration forms?" box is checked. That way, it will only be available for administrative use, and you can edit the student information later by going to People -> Manage All Students -> Click the student -> Click Edit.

I am wanting to enlarge the font on the name tags, to make it stand out.  Is there a way to do this?

Answer

No, we don't currently offer customization of the printable name tags. If you would like to further customize them you can order a pack of blank name tags from our web store here: https://answersingenesis.org/store/product/operation-arctic-vbs-nametags/?sku=11-5-015.

We have 16 students registered for VBS so far, but when I click "manage all students" only 3 show up.  The only way I can see all the students is when I click "download full student list".

This is my third year using answers for VBS and I must say, I have been very frustrated with this new website. It is not allowing me to print. I am currently trying to print the Team Rosters and it is not working. Could you please help or give me a number to call?

I love the attendance tracker option. My only question is that I checked in the kids for day 1 (we weren't able to do it during the actual check in) and it marked them all for day 2. Not sure how to fix that or if its possible at this time but wondering why it might have done that? Is it because Day 1 was technically over at 12 and I put it in hours later?

Answer

Hi Shannon, glad to hear you are using and appreciate the attendance tracker. From your description of the issue, it does seem like it was due to you entering in the kids after the fact, after the day was technically over at midnight. We don't currently support going back and adjusting check-ins for past days, but that is definitely something we want to add in the future. Thanks for your feedback!
