Activities within the Command Center can have a different status depending on what stage you are in. Testing allows you to enter surveys without them being applied towards the report. The banner is yellow and users are notified that the Activity is in test mode.
Once the count has been switiced from training to active, the banner turns green and surveys begin to count. Those surveys that meet the criteria to be included in the report are included. The report will continue to exclude responses that are not eligible including those where the sleeping location is not an unsheltered response, and those who indicated that they had already participated.
