When using the online registration system, families submit new or revised information for their students' emergency contact information. Office staff then review each emergency contact submission and decide whether to accept it into the student's record or reject it. If approved, the emergency contact information will become a part of the student's records.
In jmc Office, navigate to jmc Family > Online Registration > Merge Data > Emergency Contact Data to start approving emergency contact submissions.
Step One: Select an emergency contact from the “Modified/New Emergency Contacts” list in the upper left to review submitted information.
Helpful Tip: When selecting an emergency contact, the contact changes will be displayed in the "Proposed New Emergency Contact for Student: (Student’s name)” list for easy review.
Step Two: Select an existing contact from the "Possible Existing Contacts" list if the submitted emergency contact matches a contact already created in your jmc Office data to to avoid creating duplicate contacts.
Fun Fact: By selecting an existing contact, jmc will associate that contact with the student to avoid duplicate contact records.
Step Three: Click the “Accept” button to save the emergency contact changes to the student’s record.
Helpful Tip: Click the "Reject" button to ignore all proposed changes to a student's record.
