Data Visuals - Key Information at a Glance

Data visuals provide an at a glance representation of key information about your families, displayed in pie charts. 

The elements included in the data visuals are predefined by Jackrabbit.

  • If you have multiple Locations in your database, this element will display and show the proportion of families in each Location.
  • The number of active vs inactive families is shown.
Accounts Receivable
  • The number of families with unpaid fees will display as a fraction of all families. The chart breaks those families down by the age of the fees owed, and links are provided to easily access the families with the highest (top 5) balances.
Policy Status
  • The chart breaks down all families by the status of their agreement to your legalese: Agreements dated w/last 12 months, Agreements older than 12 months, No signed agreements.
ePayment Status
  • Families are grouped by the ePayment method on file: Has both CC and ACH, Only has CC on file, Only has ACH on file, No ePay Methods

The All Families data visuals are interactive.

  • Hover over the sections in a chart to display information about that segment.
  • Click on a section to filter families listed to only those families who meet the criteria for that section. The number of families will change to reflect only those in the selected segment, and the filter will display in the breadcrumbs bar. Use the red x next to the filter in the breadcrumbs to remove it and reset the list of families.

  • Use the links in the Top 5 Balances section of the Accounts Receivable element to quickly access the Transactions tab of the Family record.

The data visuals can be hidden from the display and toggled back to showing using the Hide/Show Data visuals icon.

Use Filters in the Filter Drawer to Search for Specific Families 

Select the Filter icon to open the Filter Drawer which houses various criteria to help you drill down to specific families, for example, to list all inactive families or to 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 look to information located in the Family record, on the various tabs. 
  • 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.

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 the 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 about working with grids.
