Pending Members

Pending Members

This is a flag that is used during the Promotion Process so that students can be moved to another class and stay in a pending state until just before Promotion Sunday. When a student is Pending, their name will display on the Pending tab of the organization, and the Pending flag will be set to True in their Member Dialog. A Pending Member will not display on a roll-sheet and will not display for Check-In.

Other use: If you want committee members to be in a ‘pending’ state until a specific date you can add them to the Pending tab of the organization. This will give them a normal Member Type of Member, but will set the Pending flag to True. When it is time for them to become active members, just remove the Pending flag.


For Promotion, all of this happens using the steps outlined in the Promotion Process help articles.
