VFW Reporting Description
– Written by Cdr. Glenn Della-Monica in Hudson. VFW specific but most of it also applies to the Aux.
District Presidents and Program Chairs, scroll to the bottom for specific information.
IMPORTANT, You MUST check the “Auxiliary” box when entering your reports in order for the Auxiliary to get credit. If nothing is checked, the system will assume that the report is a VFW report.
VFW – Don’t select the Aux. box. Otherwise the system will assume it all an Auxiliary entry. Auxiliary will enter the auxiliary reports, making sure to click the Auxiliary box each and every time! If a VFW member enters their auxiliary reports, don’t combine reports with the VFW. Do the VFW report with your members, then do the Auxiliary report with their members and check Auxiliary!
I would suggest before you submit any reports, you open each program and view the drop downs in each to familiarize yourself as to what is to be reported where. For example:
Veterans and Family Support:
VASH donations – The Hospital Chair knows about these needs and puts out the email, VASH donations should be split and reported under Veterans and Family Support and Hospital. However, VASH is a drop down in the VFS program section.
Homeless Veteran Assistance (Stand Down for instance, donations to Liberty House or Harbor Homes, etc.) should be reported under the VFS program, Homeless Veteran Assistance drop down.
There are a lot of drop downs. These are things that people do for folks who are NOT veterans. So visiting sick folks who are not veterans would go under here instead of “Hospital”.
The $2 Cancer donations they want us to give has a drop down under Community Service, as does any donations to any Cancer organizations (such as Relay for Life, any Cancer Walks like Susan Kolman, etc.) Any Senior Citizen assistance (when you’re not sure if they were all veterans or not), Blood Drives should go under here, church activities, etc.
REVIEW WHAT’S LISTED UNDER EACH PROGRAM’S DROP DOWN MENU TO CORRECTLY ENTER REPORTS!!
We will be working on setting up training sessions soon (hopefully by telecon or Webinar) so that we can train a bunch of people all at once in the comfort of their own home. Information to follow.

It’s concise, easy to understand, automatically totaled and I’m looking forward to seeing this improve our reporting numbers for both the Auxiliary and the VFW.
DISTRICT PRESIDENTS AND PROGRAM CHAIRS
We are adopting the VFW’s login and password info because our online reporting system is now incorporated into theirs.
Therefore, in order to see the numbers by District the user names and passwords are as follows:
dist1cmdr password – d1
You select the Auxiliary. It’s going to still be the heading of “Post” instead of Auxiliary, but if you click on “show” under the Auxiliary, it will be Auxiliary only numbers you see.
User name and Password For all programs
username is progrd
password is prog
Everyone will be able to access all the programs, but find
- Auxiliary All State Totals
- then click on “Show”.
You can then click on YOUR program and see who’s done what.
I hope this will be easier for everyone to remember. Again, these user names and passwords cannot be changed. It’s what the VFW has been using and now we’re using the same ones since we’re accessing the same system.
If anyone has questions, let me know.
