Pulling up new registrants for the school year

Is there a way to pull up only the new registrants for the school year using a search formula on the home screen? I know there is a function in custom reports, but I am trying to pull up the 'new' students for the 2018-2019 school year so I can make them the 'current list' and then modify the information I need in the student list fields. Thank you!

Hi @jkr503 

 

Thank you for posting your question in the PS Community! 

 

The only way to search for that group of students to make them the current selection depends on whether the District Entry Date field was filled out for your students. From the start page, you can search by DistrictEntryDate>=(The first day of the 2018 school year);DistrictEntryDate<=(The last day of the 2018 school year). This will pull a list of students that were entered in the District for the first time in the 2018-2019 school year. (Effectively, new students) Unfortunately if that field is not entered for the students, Im not sure of another way to search for those students. 

 

I encourage other Community members to share their experiences or advice for their own similar situations as well!

 

I hope this info was helpful!
