To manually enter your existing family data, and whenever you need to add a new family to your database, the most efficient method is to use the Quick Registration/Add Family form.
This form is essentially the same as the Web Registration Form your parents will use to register from your website, but this form is used internally by your staff. Settings for the Quick Registration form follow the settings you choose for your Web Registration Form from the Tools menu > Online Web Registration Settings.
When you are getting started, it is not necessary to customize the Web Registration/Quick Registration form. However, at a later time, it can be edited to include the fields that are important to your organization. See the Online Web Registration section for details on editing and customizing your registration form.
- Point to Families in the menu bar and click Quick Registration/Add Family.
- Enter the information for the Family and Student(s). Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory fields.
- You can submit the form without selecting class(es) for student(s) or you can choose to select classes and enroll the student now. For more detailed information on enrolling a student during Quick Registration see the Help article Enroll a New Student into Classes using Quick Registration.
If you did not enroll a student during Quick Registration, there are several other ways to enroll students. For more details see our Help article Methods for Staff to Enroll a Student.
