The By date view lists all the event records by date and displays the attendance total for each event. If you want to enter just a head count for an event, this is the place to do it. This is an efficient method if taking specific attendance is not an option; however, this data will not be reflected on the profile for any specific person. You can also edit, copy, and delete records.
Event records are automatically created once a batch is posted. An event record cannot be deleted unless all related attendance records in the Attendance Detail view are deleted first.
» Event—A drop-down used to select the type of event a record is for.
» Calculate using—Changes how the totals for the event are calculated, either by using the highest number or adding the event types together. For example, in a worship service, you would use the highest number, which would be the worship event type. This is because not everyone who attended may have taken Communion.
