The Events tab shows you a calendar of upcoming events for your group, along with some quick actions you can take on each event.
From the event list, you can quickly report attendance or cancel events. You can request RSVPs from your members for upcoming special events.
From the Settings tab, group leaders can modify group information such as name, description, and group image. Leaders can also update the meeting location, contact information, and group description.
There are currently two different types of reports. The Overview report will give you a bird’s eye view of how your group is doing as a whole.
The Attendance report will give you a closer look at the individuals in your group. As you take attendance during your events, this report will begin to populate.

Each week you will get an email before your weekly meeting asking you to record attendance. Check the boxes next to every member that is present.
