Vital Stats

Vital Stats Report
This report is accessed under Reports in the header, and it has two sections. The first section reports counts of people and the second section reports Contributions. The Vital Stats report looks back 7 days and it not dependent on a date range. It is designed to give you a quick look at the activity in your church for the past week.

In the Contributions section, the calculations are a bit different. See below for an explanation

Each database should have the following Saved Searches named exactly as below (this is where some of the data is gleaned):

  • Stats:Members
  • Stats:Decisions
  • Stats:Attends
  • Stats:New Attends
  • Stats:Contacts
  • Stats:Registrations

These searches, in conjunction with the code found in Administration > Special Content > Python Scripts > VitalStats, will populate the Vital Stats Report. If these searches are not in your database, please use the Help link in the top right corner of your database and Contact Support. We will help you create these searches.

Also, if you need to see different information in the Vital Stats Report for your church, you can revise the Python script. If you need help contact Support.

The following is what is reported using the basic script. You can modify the script to report other items. You can also modify the searches that go along with the script.
