Status Change History

Table of Contents   Previous Page  Next Page    

Each time the status of a membership record changes, whether manually, or via an automatic change based on status expiration settings (see Maintaining Status Codes for details), the change is recorded in the Status Change History.

The Membership History report uses this data to show the number of members who held each status in a given year.

Viewing Status Change History

1Choose File > Workspace > Membership List, or click the Membership List toolbar button.
2Select the member for which you want to view status change history.
3Choose File > Open Member.  You can also click the Open toolbar button. This will open the Details window for the member.
4Select the Status tab and click the Status History icon to open the  Maintain Status Change History window


 Notice that the "To Date" is blank on the History list for the current status. This will be filled in by the system when the next status change occurs.

5When you are finished, click OK.

 Status - The membership status the entry is for.

 From - The date the member was assigned the selected status.
