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.
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.
Save & Load Your Favorite Views
As shown in the section above, the filter functionality in the grids can simplify how you view your data. Once you have applied filters or clicked on a data visual to filter your data, it's easy to save a favorite and select the saved view as the default for your page.

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 the way 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.
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 theicon to add a new family. Although you can add a family 'on the fly' with just their name, location, and registration date, we recommend using the Quick Registration Form which allows you to add all information, including students, at the same time.
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 row menu 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 check box in the 1st column. When any check boxes (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
- Add a Note - opens the Add a note window
