Baptisms are one of the most common metrics that churches record and track throughout the year. Many churches report their total baptisms to associations, and often have a goal number in mind that they want to meet annually. Tracking Baptisms performed is important data that many ministries want to know at a moments notice.
Did you know that you can use ChurchTrac to track and measure sacraments (like Baptisms), and have the total number of Baptisms displayed on your ChurchTrac Dashboard?
Here's a quick step-by-step showing you how to do it...
In order to have your Baptism total displayed, you need to be tracking them in ChurchTrac in the first place. If you have not done so already, create a User Defined Field for Baptism. This field type should be "Date (year required)
Navigate to SETTINGS > ADMIN SETTINGS > DASHBOARD SETUP. From there you can enable your Baptism User Defined Field to be displayed in your ChurchTrac Dashboard.
Note: You will need to have Admin privlidges to make changes in Admin Settings. Learn more.
You can have your total number of Baptisms be displayed from a previous time period or since a selected date. The most common we see is by a selected date from January 1st, as this shows you your total so far for the current year.
Once selected, your Dashboard will begin displaying Baptisms on a Dashboard Card. You can even rearrange your Dashboard Cards in an order of your choosing. Congrats! 🎉
