A group category is a collection of groups or classes that you want to track together. Most churches keep records for Sunday school, discipleship groups, worship services, or ministry teams. Each of these would be a separate Group Category in ChurchTrac Online. Click on Config Group Categories on the toolbar to create new Group Categories or to edit existing Group Categories. This will open the Group Category dialog box.
When you create a new Group Category, you must also select a method for tracking the group's attendance.
The attendance tracking method you choose for a Group Category applies to all the groups/classes within that category. In other words, you can't have a Sunday School class that uses the Detailed tracking method and one that uses the Count method.
