How to move a child to the Address Book

When a child turns 18 (or younger in some regions) or is no longer eligible for your Children module groups because they are an adult, subject to your data processing consent ChurchSuite makes it easy to move their data from the Children module into the Address Book while still retaining all their important information and historic children group attendance history. Note that ChurchSuite never 'auto-moves' a child. Here's how to move a child...

Working within the Children module and viewing the child's profile page...

Scroll down past the Key Dates section to just above the Recent Activity section and click Move to Address Book.

On the Are you sure confirmation confirm that you're happy to proceed with moving the child to the Address Book by clicking Proceed, or click Cancel to abort.

The child is moved. All the child's details, communication options, tags, and key dates are retained, and event sign-up/invite history, small group membership and rota participation are unaffected. The child is removed from all Children module gatherings and groups. A Note is added against the contact's profile...

...And a Changes log is added too.

Having moved the chid to the Address Book you can now continue, perhaps editing the contact's profile to remove any irrelevant "child" tags that were carried across. Note the option to reverse the move by selecting Move to Children.
