Data Visuals - Key Information at a Glance
Data visuals (charts) provide a quick view of key information about your families. The elements included in the data visuals are predefined by Jackrabbit.
The All Families data visuals are interactive and can be hidden. Use the Hide/Show Data visualsicon to toggle back and forth.
If you have multiple Locations in your database, this element will display the proportion of families in each Location.
The number of active vs. inactive families is shown in this data visual.
The number of families with unpaid fees (Accounts Receivable) will display as a fraction of all families, e.g., 11/31. The chart breaks those families down by the age of the fees owed.
The chart breaks down all families by the status of their signed legal policy agreements:
- Have agreed to all current policies
Families are grouped by the ePayment method on file:
- Has both CC and ACH
Use Filters to Search for Specific Families
Select the Filter icon to open the Filter Drawer. The Filter Drawer houses various criteria to help you drill down to specific families, for example, to list all inactive families or find families with more than two students.
Each filter you select will narrow the results down further.
- Once filters are selected and applied, they will appear in the breadcrumbs. Use the red x next to a filter in the breadcrumbs to clear it and refresh the displayed families.
- Filters are grouped and organized into sections for ease of use and pull information from the various tabs in the Family record.
- Use the arrow (>) to expand a section to see the filters within, or use the Expand All/Collapse All option at the top of the Filter Drawer.
- Search for a filter by entering a keyword in the search box at the top of the Filter Drawer. For example, enter "ePay" to quickly locate and navigate to the ePayment Method filter in the Financial Details section.
- Select date fields by clicking on the calendar icon or manually enter dates.
Save your Favorite Filtered Grid Views
Save time and effort each time you open a grid page to view your data! After you have applied filters or clicked on a data visual, set the grid column widths, and you can save the filtered data as a Favorite.
Saved favorites can be set as a default view and shared with other Jackrabbit Users in your organization. There is no limit to the number of filtered grid views you can save.
Save a Favorite
Once filters are selected, it's simple to save your favorite views:
|Open a Favorite|
Load or open a saved favorite:
If you opened a saved favorite grid view and would like to make it your default view, resave it as a favorite and toggle the Make this your default view? to the right. Click Save.
|Delete a Favorite|
If you created a Favorite, you will be able to delete it:
Contact Jackrabbit Support if you want to delete a Favorite filtered view created by another User.
Work with the Information in the Grid (Table)
Jackrabbit grids, located throughout the system, are very powerful and allow you to group and sort your data to customize how your results are displayed. Each grid has core features, such as grouping data by dragging a column to the grouping bar. Row menus and column menus offer different options depending on the grid.
Learn more about working with grids.
Use Column Search to quickly find information in a column. For example, enter a family last name or part of a name, and all the matches will populate in the grid. Use the red x to clear the information in the search field.
Add a New Family
Use the Add New Family (icon)to open the Add Family window. We recommend you always select the Use Quick Registration Form button whenever possible. This allows you to add all the new family information, including students, and sign them up for classes at the same time.
You also have the option to add a family account 'on the fly' with just their name, location, and registration date when you click on the Enter Family Name Only link.
To accommodate different workflows, the Quick Registration form can also be accessed directly from the Families (menu).
Take Action for an Individual Family
Use the rowmenu to edit that row and access options for working with an individual family. Click on the icon, and a new browser tab or pop-up window will open depending on the action you select.
Click directly on the row menu for the family you want to work with; do not use the checkbox in the 1st column. When any checkboxes (for use with mass actions) are selected in the 1st column, the row menus are deactivated and won't display.
- View/Edit - opens the Family record
- Post Fees - opens the Make Sale/Post Fees page
- Accept Payment/Post Credit - opens the Payment Transaction Entry page
