Entering Student Measurements

*For the purposes of assigning costume sizes DanceWorks Online only uses the Girth Measurement. While the other measurements may be useful in helping determine a proper size for kids whose girth measurement may fall between two costume sizes they are not required for the program to assign a size.

Tip: When entering measurements for a new year some studios prefer to clear all of the measurements from the previous year. While you can certainly just edit over existing measurements clearing them can prevent a bit of confusion as to what is new and what is old. Once a student’s measurements have been entered or updated in one class they are automatically updated in all other classes the student is enrolled in.

 

To clear student measurements:

  • Select the Admin option from the Main Menu in the top left corner of DanceWorks Online.
  • Select Clear School Data (2nd from the bottom).
  • On the Clear School Data screen check the box next to Clear Student Measurements.
  • Click the Clear Select button.

  1. Is there no way to just add letter sizes instead of the girth and the measurements? We are a mobile dance company and most of our students are itty bitty so we go by letter how would we change that to letter size instead? We do have older ones preteens but even with them we use letter sizes its much easier we also have a sizing kit that we use that is letter sized.

  2. Is there no way to enter measurements to students in a class as a table, similar to what was done before we moved to the online database? It is extremely time consuming and annoying to have to click on “enter Measurements”, enter then “save changes” on each individual student! Please tell me there is an easier way!

    1. Good Morning! In the desktop software you had to click or tab into each field to activate it and enter the measurement and then the field was locked once you left it. The nature of web based coding doesn’t work like that so you have to take an action to tell it to save/lock the fields which is why it works like it currently does.

      As we make changes to the entire studio database over the next year we’ll see if we can find a more streamlined way of making those changes.

  3. It would be so much easier if we didnt have to click on each student and click enter measurements and then click again to save the measurements…the desktop version was much more user friendly with entering measurements.
