20-21 ONCORPS START HELP
Bringing members over from OnCorps from the previous year.
This is a simple process. Go to TOOLS>COPY PROGRAM RECORDS. Start by reading the information and then watch the video tutorial. The tutorial will walk you through the process.
Once you bring the selected members over you will need to go into the MEMBER PROFILE and reset:
REMOVE ANY HOURS ADDED in the MEMBER PROFILE
Member logins and passwords do not need to be recreated.
Time sheets need to be completely recreated. Make sure you add extra months if you believe there might be a chance that you’ll request a no-cost grant extension. There are two steps (both are available under TOOLS>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS):
Timesheet Dates - If you need different date ranges for your time sheets, please reach out to the OnCorps help desk for assistance.
Timesheet Set up – you’ll need to choose from STANDARD, HYBRID or ENHANCED time sheets.

To set up a site supervisor, you’ll need the first and last name, the service site, full address and phone. Then you’ll set the login and password.
Please enter this supervisor approval language:
By clicking submit, the member certifies that the time reported as program service, training and fundraising hours are true and correct and did not include any service activities prohibited by law, regulation or grant provisions. Further the member understands that a knowing and willful false statement on this form can be punished under federal law (Section 1001 of Title 18, USC).
To set up a new member, go to the Member Profile (MANAGE RECORDS> MEMBERS>ADD A NEW AMERICORPS MEMBER). Add information in all the areas that have a red asterisk. Additionally, the area entitled “STATUS”. If you do not change that area from blank to ENROLLED, members will not be able to login to OnCorps. The areas in the Member Profile are optional. If you choose to use the Accompaniment option, member
Make certain that you provide site supervisors and members with a link to the new years’ time sheets or to the main Iowa OnCorps page
