About

Description

Inactivating Accounts

Inactivating an account clears the Active checkbox on the patron's Account Info tab. Inactive accounts do not appear on POS terminals.

Student Accounts
The Account Management Wizard inactivates Student Accounts when a student does not have a current active or future-dated active enrollment. The wizard searches for an Enrollment End Status Code and/or Enrollment End Date depending on the criteria you select. However, if you use the Ad hoc tool to select student accounts, the wizard inactivates all accounts regardless of current or future-dated enrollments.

Staff Accounts
The Account Management Wizard inactivates staff accounts when the staff member has a District Employment and/or District Assignment record with end dates and no active or future-dated District Employment record or District Assignments.

Family Accounts
The Account Management Wizard considers the enrollments for all patrons on the account. If ANY patron on the family account has an active enrollment or an active staff record, the account is NOT inactivated. All patrons on family accounts are inactivated with the account if there are no active or future student enrollments or staff employment records found in Campus for the patrons on the account. However, if you use the Ad hoc tool to select accounts, the wizard inactivates all accounts regardless of current or future-dated enrollments or employment records.

Removing PINs

This option removes the PIN from patrons who have an inactive account in Campus. For example, an account where the Active checkbox on the patron's Account Info tab has been cleared. When a PIN is removed the Location School field is set to "Default" on the Account Info tab.

Family Accounts
If a family account is inactive and you select Student in the Type field, the PIN is only removed from the student on the family account. To remove staff PINs from family accounts, select Staff or Staff and Student in the Type field. If there are any patrons on a family account with no enrollment or employment record, you must manually remove the PIN or use an Ad Hoc filter.

Food Service Cashier and Food Service Manager
The Account Management Wizard only removes personal PINs from an account. If an inactive staff account includes Cashier and Manager PINs, these PINs will no longer work on the Point of Sale Terminal; however, these PINs will not be removed from the account. Cashier and Manager PINs must be manually removed.

Report example for inactivating accounts and removing PINs

Report Section

Description

Summary

This section reports the total number of accounts inactivated.

  • If the district uses Family Accounts, the number of accounts reported in the Summary may be different than the number of patrons listed under the Patron Detail section.
  • If the district uses Family Accounts and Enrollment End Status(es) are selected as criteria, the Total # of Accounts inactivated (in the Summary section) may be different than the total count of Enrollment End Status(es) (in the Patron Detail section).

Patron Detail

  • This section is sorted alphabetically by patron names and includes the following columns.
    • Student Section: Inactive Account #, Grade, PIN Number Removed, Enrollment End Status (if any), Enrollment End Date (if any) and # of Patrons on Account. 
    • Staff Section: Inactive Account #, PIN Number Removed and # of Patrons on Account.
  • The # of Patrons on Account column is intended for districts using Family Accounts. If a district uses Family Accounts, the account is only inactivated if at least one of the patrons meet the criteria selected and all remaining patrons on the account have an ended student enrollment or ended staff employment record. The PIN is only removed from the patron(s) who meets the criteria and only that patron is listed in the Patron Detail section.
