The secretary (or his assistant) has full access to enter reports. Appointed users have VIEW ONLY access and non-appointed users have no access. If the secretary uses an assistant, the assistant will go to Settings > Scheduling and check the Service Reports box on his copy of KHS. But only one user can enter reports for the congregation so if you are the secretary and have an assistant entering reports, he will need to enter all monthly reports and share his data with the secretary via a data exchange.
Group overseers should never use this screen to enter reports for their group. Instead, ask the secretary to email you an invitation to install the FSG companion program (see below). The FSG entry screen is similar to KHS and allows group overseers to email their reports directly to the secretary for easy import into KHS.
|Report to Branch||
Displays the congregations field service activity to be submitted to the branch by the 20th of every month.
When closing this screen, you will be prompted to close out the current reporting month. But do so only after submitting your report to the branch. It is important that you close out a month because this will ensure late reports are properly recorded and will allow the current monthly results to be used in several reports.
|Meeting Attendance||Record meeting attendance for the midweek and weekend meetings. You can also print a report similar to the S-88.|
Display an electronic version of the Congregation's Publisher Record. Select a Service Year from the dropdown to enter past reports directly into the grid. Past reports will not be flagged as late. You can enter up to 36 months of past reports. Reports more than 36 months old will automatically be deleted.
The program supports the latest S-21 (12/18) and can be printed on standard paper. If your branch is not yet using the new S-21 format, you can print directly to the older S-21 publisher cards from this screen. The program supports both portrait and landscape tray orientations. Before printing to a S-21 publisher card, try printing a few sample cards to blank letter-size paper to determine exactly where the text is being printed.
Click the Layout button to adjust the position of the text.
|Reports||Display a list of available reports that can be viewed, e-mailed to another Elder, or exported.|
Email invitations to group overseers to download a companion program called Field Service Group Activity. The program does not require registration (see note below). Once installed group overseer can record field service reports for publishers in their group. They cannot add, edit, or delete publishers so the invitation email will include an attachment they must save to their desktop and import by clicking Import Publishers. If the service committee makes any changes to a group, the secretary must send the group overseer a new publisher file. The group overseers will click Send Report to email their reports to the secretary via an exchange file. The secretary will save the file to his Desktop and start KHS to import.
Note: Tech support is not available to group overseers who install Field Service Group Activity. The secretary will offer assistance if needed.
