How to Add Extra Reporting Fields
Just like Services, you can add as many custom statistics as you like when it comes to Group Reporting. When your group leaders fill in their report, the custom statistics will appear below the list of names.
To set up Custom Statistics, navigate to Settings and click Groups.
On this page, you can drag and drop available fields into the ‘Reporting Fields’ column.
Important Note: Each field added needs to be given a name, otherwise it will not work.
Showing Custom Group Reporting and Notes Fields for Group Reports
Similar to customizing the Reporting template for Service Types, you can edit Group Categories and limit which fields will be included in the Group Reports for the particular Group Category. If you have custom statistics that are relevant for certain group categories, you can show or hide the fields in this area.
To show or hide a Custom Group Reporting or Notes fields, navigate to Groups > Categories in the Admin Area.
Click the ‘Reporting’ link under the category you would like to edit.
For each of the Custom Reporting fields you want to hide, click on the ‘Hide’ button. Once hidden, the link should be renamed to ‘Show’. A hidden reporting or notes field will also be greyed out.
