Double/Triple Point Night
« on: September 23, 2013, 07:25:43 AM »
Note: This post is applicable in the Legacy database as well as in the Cloud database's Windows App.

Hello All,

     I'm new to both the Approved Workman Software and the Forum here. I am currently tinkering with the Trail Version of the Software, and was wondering if it were possible to double/triple the points earned on a particular night of a Club Year. We have two Theme Nights that we do a couple of times a year titled Double/Triple Point Night. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I thank you in advanced for any assistance in this area.

Jerry

There is not currently a feature that will automatically double or triple the points earned. However, you CAN use the "Other" cell in the Check-in grid and manually enter a point value. Thus, it would be fairly easy to wait until all of the attendance, uniform, bible, book, etc categories and the handbook sections are entered, then start at the top of the list and manually enter the same number of points into the "Other" cell that appear in the Total Points cell and then press the down arrow to move to the next record. This way you wouldn't have to use the mouse at all, just type a number and then down arrow and repeat until you've edited all the records.  As you move from one record (row) to the next the Total Points value will be updated to include the "Other" points.

Could this possibly be a feature in the next (or a future)update?

Yes, we are always open to suggestions for future enhancements.  If anyone else reading this posting has an opinion about this feature, please jump in!

We do this theme once or twice per night but don't have the need to have it immediately calculated. Our secretaries will manual input the value in the "other" column once they finish entering the data.  For us, it is not a critical feature.

I can imagine though that clubs that may do a point contest each night may want such a feature where it is automatically done on the spot.

The double/triple points system would work for us. We hold a Fairmont Fair and clubbers build up point in order to be converted into cash for the fair. They get points on a variety of things including behaviour.

Doubling points is something we used to do a lot before starting to use AWdb. Now we solve this by having the bonus points and the two custom fields have three different sets of value. Then we stay within these options. Doubling the points for individual options would be great. We would use that capability.
