Whether it's a new staff member or children's ministry volunteers, churches regularly perform background checks on their people to keep their ministries safe. In many states, regularly performing background checks on individuals serving in children's ministries is a requirement by law.
Create a User-Defined Field called "Background Check" with a date field (year required).
On your new Background Check field, begin recording the dates on all of your people for when they had a background check done.
Create a new Smart List called something like "Needs Background Check". For your criteria, you'll want to select your Background Check field, select "Before", and choose a date that that coincides with the expiration period of background checks. For example, if you want to do new background checks every 2 years, you'll want to choose a date of two years ago today.
Your newly created Smart List will now display every individual who has a background check that is currently past the due date which you've selected. In our example, we have a list of individuals whose background check is past 2 years.
