Track Total Attendance

In some situations, such as a Sunday worship service, you may simply want to track total attendance numbers, without the need to place individuals into a group, manage the list of people, etc. Here’s how:

  1. Create a new Group (click Groups, then click the Add tab). For example, “Sunday 9:00am Contemporary Service.” You can configure the name and description if you want, but do not check the “Individual Attendance” checkbox. Click Save. The group will now be created, with 0 people in it.
  2. Count your attendees who come to your service/meeting/class. 
  3. Go to Attendance → Input → Add Session. Choose the date you recorded attendance, and the Group name you created in step 1 above, then enter the number you counted in step 2. Click Save.
  4. Over time, your attendance data will be stored and will build a report. You’ll be able to go to Reports → Attendance to view and analyze the data.

Pro-Tip: If your church runs multiple services and you want to record attendance BOTH in individual services, as well as for the weekend as a whole, then create an Aggregate. Once you have created groups for each of your separate services (step 1 above), create an Aggregate for "Weekend Services" (or similar). This way, you can run reports for your entire weekend as well as individual service times. Learn more about how to create aggregates for attendance.
