For our membership, using computers, the online reporting capability is a major step forward and is a huge timesaver. Data does not have to be passed from one paper trail to the next within your post or department. You, your post and your department leadership are able to also view the data anytime they wish and even edit if necessary. At the end of each six-month reporting period, the National Programs Department “rolls up” a national report and resets the reporting period date for the next six-month period. However, the data from the previous period will be retained and can be recalled at any time by entering the previous reporting period ending date in the “analyze reports” screen. A great tool to compare progress and also be able to track the individuals associated with making those reports. The system provides a digital trail, for everyone to see, identifying who entered the data.
