Use Group Aggregates for Total Attendance

Aggregates Total Attendance of Multiple Groups

An aggregate is a group of groups used for attendance purposes.

Attendance is usually taken by class. But, you often need to know how the sum total of all people at that attended a given series of events. As an example, you can create an aggregate for all of your weekend classes, and it will easily total the attendance for you. 

Make an Aggregate of Aggregates!

For instance, let's say you already have a Children's Sunday School Aggregate that contains all the children Sunday School Classes. Additionally, you have an aggregate for adult Sunday School which contains all the adult classes. Combining these two aggregates into another allows you to see attendance totals for children, adults, and overall attendance.

There is a report for these under Reports → Attendance.


Create Aggregates

  1. Navigate to Groups and then click the Aggregates tab.
  2. Now, click the Add tab.
  3. Give your Aggregate a name, and choose whether or not this aggregate will use groups that collect individual attendance or total attendance.
    1. NOTE: Aggregates can contain groups that either collect individual attendance or total attendance, but not both. After you choose which kind you want to include, a list of all your groups and aggregates that meet that specification will appear.
  4. Select the groups and/or the other aggregates that will comprise this aggregate.
  5. Click Save.
