This feature of the Community Check Box (CCB) allows you to track demographic information (at an aggregate level, not an individual level) about people being served by your program. This demographic information can be related to any accomplishment you are entering into the CCB. For example, if you are entering information about a session you held as part of a program (a Service Provided), you can use the Participants Description (PD) feature to enter information related to important demographic characteristics (e.g., age, ethnicity, place).
Participants Description data is entered when creating or editing an Accomplishment entry. You can:
Click on the View Data or Add Data button on the dashboard.
If creating a new accomplishment, you must create the accomplishment first and hit
Save. This will save the accomplishment and stay on the page so you can enter PD data.
If adding PD data to an existing accomplishment, double-click on the existing entry to open the edit window. Or, if you are on a mobile device, click the existing accomplishment once and then click Edit from the top bar on the page.
Total Number Served and
Total New Participants. If there are no categories, skip to step 4.
If categories are included, enter the data for each category. Be sure that the totals from each category equal to the Total Number Served and Total New Participants. If they do not match, you will receive an error.
Save on the PD entry.
Save and Close on the accomplishment.
