Sorting students by "New" results in "You have no students."

It would be really helpful if this worked by sorting students by how recently they were added. I can't print name badges for just my newest students, I have to print them for EVERY STUDENT because this feature doesn't work.


They're assigned to teams automatically based on age group. So this feature is basically useless.

Hello Justin,

The sort by 'New' feature is meant to show Students before they are assigned to a team, so you do not have to scroll through your Student list to find newly registered attendees. This feature does not check to see the most recent Students registered to your VBS. When the Students are not yet assigned to a team (new) you can print name tags for just those Students, use the drop down next to the Search Students field, select New then click the check box to select all the new Students then select the Actions drop down Print Selected Name Tags.

You can turn the Auto Assign function off here: https://myanswers.com/vbs/manage/3130/event-settings/

However once they have been placed in a team they are no longer new. To print name tags for these Students you will need to either locate the team they are assigned to and click the check box next to their name, or search by the child's name.



In the future, I would suggest you turn off auto-assignment for your teams once your VBS is about to start, so you can first print off all the students that have been registered, and then easily see the new students that register after that.
