Please click on this link to watch the video or see below for written instructions. Gabriel Mass Counts

If you are not currently using our Ministry Schedule Module you will need to set up all your Masses. The solution article in the link includes how to add your minister requirements which you can disregard if you are not using the scheduling module.   Ministry Scheduling - Setting Up Mass Schedule (Service Maintenance)

Once the Masses are created Mass Counts can be entered.  Scroll to Scheduling > Service Maintenance where you will see a list of your Masses.  Click View next to the Mass that you wish to add your Mass Count to.

Click on the Count tab. Click on Add Service Attendance.

The Add Service Attendance box will popup.  Add the DateLocation (optional), and the number of parishioners. Click Save.  If you are going to be using the Location field create standard entries that you will use consistently so that the data can be sorted by location.  

To download all your data that you have entered click on Download and an Excel .csv or .xlsl file will be created.  All reports generated in Gabriel will automatically default to your Downloads file on your computer.  If you want the ability to sort your data quickly you can convert the file into a Table (How do I convert an excel download into a table?).  This data can be used to create graphs to view trends in Mass Attendance and files can easily be sent to your Diocese.

In addition to the download you can go to the Report Library to generate the Mass Attendance Count Report. Mass Attendance Count Report

Giving Access To Usher's for Entering Mass Counts

If you would like to give your ushers access to entering Mass Counts and if your usher's have access to a smart phone or other device that can be connected to the internet then you can set them up so they can enter Mass Counts in real-time while at Mass.  This is a time-saver for the Parish Office staff. The ushers can use their personal email (only if it is not currently connected to the Member Portal) or the Parish Office can create emails for the ushers.  For example, (jb being the usher's initials).  Once the email is created by the Parish Office login credentials will need to be setup for the email. User Registration for Accessing Your Gabriel Database  Once the user has created login credentials and the Parish Admin approves the email they can be given an access level of Service Manager only.  

The ushers would access Gabriel by going to  

Once logged in it will take them directly to the list of masses and they would proceed as defined in the previous steps.
