How to use Leo’s Tools

Leo’s tools are amazing, they give you a graphical picture of what’s happening with clubs in the district.  Caution:  By default Leo’s tools shows a color view of DCP status, not membership status.

This is really cool looking, but not real helpful.  We need to make some adjustments to get the true picture.  The rest of this article shows how to get the views that will be helpful to assess your Division / Area situation.

After launching Leo’s tools https://code.pachogrande.com/leotools/leoboard.html?district=39  you see what appears to be a periodic table.

Default view shows club order based on DCP points.

Problem, without membership, are technically not in the game yet.

Purple = (DCP 9-10)
Blue = (DCP 7-8)
Green = (DCP 5-6)
Yellow = (DCP 4)
Orange = (DCP 3)
Red = (DCP 1-2)
Gray = (DCP 0)

NOTE:  The thing you don’t realize is the smaller # is the membership qualifier.  0 or more is good.  -1 or less is bad.  But it’s not that obvious.

Do not use the default settings: Current DCP (desc), Grouping Disabled, Render(Change your colors)

To see the membership picture, we need to see which clubs are close to meeting the membership requirements and those that are in trouble.

By changing Render parameter to Membership we get the qualifying membership picture.

Green = (Membership/growth met)
Yellow = (-1 to -4 to meet membership/growth)
Red = (-5 or more to meet membership/growth)

NOTE: You can easily see that green clubs meet the membership.  Yellow clubs are close to membership requirement.  Red clubs need more help.

Use membership settings: Current DCP (desc), Grouping Disabled, Render (Membership)

To see the clubs that need the most help, change the view one more time.

Sort by Required Membership for DCP (ascending)

It will show clubs in ascending order from Danger in Red, to Getting Close in Yellow, to Doing well in Green.

Red = (-5 or more to meet membership/growth)
Yellow = (-1 to -4 to meet membership/growth)
Green = (Membership/growth met)

56 Red – Clubs in Danger
48 Yellow – Clubs close to growth numbers
54 Green – Clubs that are on track

This view helps Division Directors and Area Directors quickly see what they need to focus on.

Use membership settings: Sort by Required Membership for DCP (asc), Grouping Disabled, Render (Membership)

To see the membership view grouped by Areas, choose Grouping Area, Render (Membership)

Green = (Membership/growth met)
Yellow = (-1 to -4 to meet membership/growth)
Red = (-5 or more to meet membership/growth)

This view helps Division Directors and Area Directors quickly see what they need to focus on.

NOTE: You can easily see that green clubs meet the membership.  Yellow clubs are close to membership requirement.  Red clubs need more help.

Use membership settings: Current DCP (desc), Grouping Area, Render (Membership)
