How can I delete a particular commitment date, or assign it to another adorer?

When a committed adorer won't be at adoration and you've already worked out a solution offline, you have a few ways to inform the system about this arrangement.

Do nothing

You actually don't need to tell the system that the adorer won't be at adoration. Yes, the system will automatically create a visit for the adorer at the time the commitment begins. However, if nobody checks in for the visit, it will simply exist on the website as an unconfirmed visit (which you can delete or ignore). Or, if another adorer checks in as a guest substitute, that also works just fine.

But you probably want a cleaner solution. Thankfully, it exists.

Assign the commitment date to another adorer

If you found another adorer offline and you simply want to assign this particular date to a different adorer, you can either request a sub and then quickly claim it (see here), or you can visit the adorer's dashboard and assign the date to another adorer. Here's how:

  1. Visit the dashboard of the adorer who can't make it to adoration.

  2. Find the commitment in question and click the little dropdown arrow next to the respective date (this dropdown is only visible to administrators and captains).

  3. Click "Assign to another adorer" and complete the form that appears.

And that's it! You just created a substitute request and immediately assigned it to another adorer, thus bypassing the automated Sub Finder system. You'll find the new one-time substitution commitment on the other adorer's dashboard, and you'll find a claimed sub request on the Admin » Substitute Requests page.

Delete the commitment date

If an adorer can't make it to adoration and you don't need a substitute (for example, if you know that other adorers will already be there), then you can simply delete the date from the commitment. Here's how:

  1. Visit the dashboard of the adorer who can't make it to adoration.

  2. Find the commitment in question and click the little dropdown arrow next to the respective date (this dropdown is only visible to administrators and captains).

  3. Click "Delete this date" and complete the form that appears.

And that's it! You just informed the system that the adorer won't be there, which means that no visit will be created automatically. Nice and clean.

And—if you later need to restore this date, it's easy. Just click on the "Restore" button next to the commitment date.
