Hoping someone can help me out, attendance for EQ is recorded in tools app for this quarter. Tools app has been synced but no EQ numbers show up on the quarterly report in LCR. What am I missing?

A few months ago when I still did the quarterly report, I noticed that it took 10+ minutes for the attendance entries to get updated on the report. You may just need to check later.

Did you click the button at the top of the quarterly report page to import attendance data?

They changed the process slightly this time. The attendance numbers for second hour don't automatically sync to the quarterly report. If you want to pull them in that is an option in LCR on the quarterly report page (as scgallafent said).

It is not obvious but the user must first click the Edit button. Now the Update Attendance button will be accessible.

Awesome, thanks everyone 🙏🏿 I’m Logged in to the LCR on desktop, then reports tab-> quarterly report and just not seeing an edit button or update attendance option. Also not seeing it on the class and quorum attendance page either if that is where I was supposed to look. I’m one of two EQ secretaries for the ward. Is updating attendance something only the clerk can do?

Only a ward clerk, membership clerk, ward executive secretary or bishopric member can edit the quarterly report. Normally it would be a clerk responsibility. EQ secretaries can see the quarterly report, but they do not have edit access.

Question for somebody who knows: would be be correct to say that Best Practice for a ward clerk would be to always import attendance data when submitting the Quarterly Report, even if they already did it a few days prior? I'm thinking that often an organization may update attendance without letting the clerk know, and if the clerk previously imported the data, the report wouldn't have this new information. If the report auto-pulled the current data from the past quarter this wouldn't be necessary, but it seems like maybe now the clerk should/could take this additional step to sync any late-arriving attendance info.
I haven't interacted with the report generation, so perhaps I've missed something.

I would import the data again right before submitting the report.

Last quarter, the data was automatically updated when an organization leader made a change. That was changed this quarter for several reasons.
