Creating Tracking Fields

Tracking Fields
A Tracking Field is a new type of custom question that can be answered when taking attendance. Tracking fields can be assigned to any attendance-enabled report. Once assigned, the field will be available for use as part of all attendance sheets created from the assigned report.

NOTE: A report must be attendance-enabled in order to assign Tracking Fields to it.

Click on the Organization tab.

Select Tracking Fields from the menu on the left.

Here, you can view your existing Tracking Fields. To create a new Tracking Field, select Create Tracking Field on the top right corner of the page. You can create as many Tracking Fields as you'd like but only eight fields can be assigned to a single report at any given time.

In the pop-up box, enter the name of the Tracking Field and select the field type. There are 3 types of field types:

  • Numeric (Whole Numbers only): Only numbers can be entered in the text box.
  • Text Field: a small text box for one line of text
  • Single Choice: Select only one answer from a pre-defined list

Once done, hit Save.
