Take Attendance

Created on:
Updated on:

Attendance can be a key indicator of group health. Leaders can take attendance from the Admin side or in Church Center as early as 10 minutes before the event.

Tip

If attendance isn’t something you’re interested in tracking, an Administrator can disable the reminders on the group settings page.

Request Attendance from Leaders

Administrators can request attendance from single events.

Tip

If you want attendance reminders to be sent to leaders before every event, set this up in the group settings.

On the event page, click Request attendance from leaders.

An email will be sent to the primary email address of each group leader.

When the leader clicks Report attendance now, they will be taken to the attendance form for the event.

Take Attendance on Church Center

Leaders can take attendance by following the link in the email they receive, or they can go to Church Center directly to take attendance.

From an Event for a group you lead, tap Take attendance.

Take Attendance on the Admin Side

A group's event tab shows the attendance status for each event. Events are listed in chronological order and show the date, name, and attendance if it's already been taken.

Click Take attendance to be taken directly to the attendance roster.

Check the box next to members who were present, and search for others who attended.

If attendees are not listed on the roster, use the dropdown and choose Member, Visitor, or Leader, and then enter the names of additional attendees. Members and Leaders will be shown on the roster permanently; Visitors will need to be added to the roster each time they attend.

If there are visitors mentioned in the event note, you can add a visitor count here so that your total numbers are accurate.

Warning

If you are a Leader and you are not seeing the search bar to add a new member, reach out to your Administrator to give you access.

Click Submit to record attendance, which may add new members and leaders to your group.

Change a Visitor to a Member

From the Admin side, change the visitor's status from Visitor to Member.

Go to the attendance roster, and click the star to promote the visitor to a member.
