With ChurchTrac, there are multiple ways to track attendance. Below gives you an overview of our Quick Entry method, as well as how to Add a Name to the database. For detailed information on how to enter attendance using our various ways, click on the articles below:
To take attendance for an event, select the event in which you would like to take attendance on the Attendance & Check-In Tab. Click the Tag(s) that you want to enter/edit attendance for.
Once you click on the tag you are wanting to track attendance for, the names associated with that tag will appear on the right.
You can then click on names individually or utilize the "Mark All" feature at the bottom of the list if everyone is present.
This mode also allows for you to enter in a "Guest" count too. If you have guests that you don't want to enter into your database, this is a good place to record their attendance.
The Search box at the top of the Attendance Entry section can be used to search for a name. When typing letters (minimum of three) into the search box, any names that contain those letters will be displayed on the screen. Or you can type in the name of a Tag, and all the names associated with it will show. Once the correct names are on the screen, click the box next to the name of each person in attendance. A blue highlight and checkmark in the box indicates "present," and a white box indicates "absent."
There are two options available to add guests or new member names to the Attendance Screen.
