The Costumes Dashboard will provide all the information needed to manage the entire flow of costume orders in one central location.

Accessing the Costumes Dashboard

1. From the left navigation menu, click Classes > Class Admin.

2. Click Reports>Costumes Dashboard.

Using the Filters

  • Use the Search field to find Classes, Costumes, Vendors, or Members.

  • Use the Customize Filters button to narrow the search by Session, Program, Sub Program, and Class.

  • Use the dropdown options to search by Active, Past, or All Classes, Location, Reg Status, Vendors, and the Status of the Order(s).

Using the Dashboard

  1. The Costumes for each Class will appear on the Dashboard. Each member assigned to the costume will also appear.

  2. Several checkboxes are available to track the progress of the orders. These must be manually updated.

  • Ordered - When placing an order with the vendor, check the box, and today's date will populate, or edit the date manually.

  • Received - When receiving an order, check the box, and today's date will populate, or edit the date manually.

  • Distributed - When distributing the order, check the box and today's date will populate, or edit the date manually.

  • Invoiced - When "Create a Charge" is completed for the costume, this will automatically populate. Manually check the box if invoicing for the costume in another way, such as a payment plan or manual charge. If using the "Post Charge," option it is not possible to edit the date or create another charge, preventing duplicate charges for the same item. Learn more: How to Post Charges for Costumes.

  • Returned - For a returned item, check the box, and today's date will populate, or edit the date manually.

  • Notes - This is a freeform field to add any additional important details.

  2. Select the date the items were ordered.
