    Once the children/students move up a grade is there a way to make it that it automatically moves them into the appropriate tags e.g. from 5th graders tag to 6th graders tag? Or do you have to do that manually?

    My Youth directory wants to know the same thing.  This year I manually moved the 5th graders to the Junior High tag.  It would be great if there was a way to make a special kind of tag that would move the 5th graders to Junior High Tag and the 8th graders to the High School tag.

    We don't currently have a method to have someone automatically assigned to a tag.  However, this is what I do at the end of every school year and it only takes about 10 minutes.  I actually just did it last week!

    When the grades promote automatically I update the tags like this:

    I run a search for all high schoolers by going to the people tab > show more filter options > grade > check the boxes for 9-12.  Then I click 'assign to tags' on the right and choose "high school".  I then click "unassign from tags" and choose middle school.  This will put (or keep) anyone in those grades in the right tags and remove any that were in the middle school tag from that tag.

    Then I repeat the same thing for Middle School and then each class we have for elementary and lower (we do one class for grades 1-5, a class for 4-Kinder, a class for 2-3, and a Nursery class).  

    Hopefully this makes sense and will be quick and easy to implement!

    How do kids started into the grade promotion process if they are babies? If we input a graduation date for a 2 year old, will Breeze start assigning her grades as she grows? Or, do we have to find all of the 4 year olds and mark them in Pre-Kindergarten to start the promotion process?

    Hey James - if you change it from "grade" to "graduation year" then you can enter in any age.  For instance, I have a 2 year old and a 7 month old so I have their graduation year as 2034 and 2036 respectively.  When it's listed as that they will not appear to have a "grade" just a graduation year and you can search by graduation year.  In a couple of years my two year old's graduation year will change to "Pre-Kindergarten" automatically based on the year I have listed her as graduating.
