The Growth History Overview is part of the 2014 Corps Review process. This document is generated from SAMIS based on the statistics you have entered for your location. To make sure that your GH Overview report accurately reflects all ministries at your locaiton, make sure you have entered all your relevant 2014 statistics.
Some of the changes to the report include: reflection of Music and Gospel Arts activities, more Children & Youth activities have been included in the calculations, a reflection of Community & Family Services statistics.
To run a sample of your Growth History Overview report log in to SAMIS, choose CREATE REPORTS, choose the 'Growth History Overview' report, set the dates to Jan 2014 - Dec 2014, choose submit. View your report on the View Reports tab. The system generates an Excel document, however, fields are locked and cannot be edited.
It is important that you make sure all your 2014 statistics are completed as soon as possible, since SAMIS will be closing soon for 2014 entry.
