Quarterly Report Bug?

Postby dannykos » Wed Jan 28, 2009 12:54 am

Has anyone else notice that on the Youth section of the quarterly report - when you click on the link of either YM or YW - the list it shows is incomplete?

It seems to only show youth who have been baptised - rather than ALL 12-17year olds who are on record!? Apparently we only have 13YW whereas there are actually 19 when you count them all up!

Surely this isn't right?!

From MLS help:

Total Members
A count of individuals whose membership records are assigned to your unit, including those:
- Baptized and confirmed
- Not baptized and confirmed, but are less than age 9 aand have a membership record
Individuals who are 9 years of age or older and not baptized and confirmed are not included in any Quarterly Report categories.


I don't see a bug.

This is correct, and by design. Only "Members of Record" count in those types of attendance calculations (see CHI book 1, page 145, for what constitutes a "Member of Record"). It is not a bug.
