Status Change History
Each time the status of a membership record changes, whether manually, or via an automatic change based on status expiration settings (see Maintaining Status Codes for details), the change is recorded in the Status Change History.
The Membership History report uses this data to show the number of members who held each status in a given year.
Viewing Status Change History
|1||Choose File > Workspace > Membership List, or click the Membership List toolbar button.|
|2||Select the member for which you want to view status change history.|
|3||Choose File > Open Member. You can also click the Open toolbar button. This will open the Details window for the member.|
|4||Select the Status tab and click the Status History icon to open the Maintain Status Change History window|
Notice that the "To Date" is blank on the History list for the current status. This will be filled in by the system when the next status change occurs.

Adding or Changing a Status Change History Entry
You can add new entries or change existing entries at any time. This is helpful to remove an accidental change, or to add historical entries (things that happened prior to using MemberTies, for example).

|3||The following fields are available:|
Status - The membership status the entry is for.
From - The date the member was assigned the selected status.
