There is a report template called "Child Relationships" which useful for creating classroom rosters, youth group rosters, or other listings organized by the child/student. This report can be reached by clicking "Reports ... Create Reports from Templates." This report template is loosely based on "Adult-Child Relationship search" which is parent centric. The main difference is that this new report template is child-centric (ie: there is one row per child). The report also allows for inclusion of custom data from the child's record.
You have a button in Advanced Search that allows you to create custom search result columns for your class roster(s). This feature relies on the profile(s) you've created in your back office that are used for "search views". To read more about creating profiles CLICK HERE. Once you've created a custom profile with the columns you'd like to see on your class roster, go to your Search/ Advanced Search and choose the profile from the select bar "Search Views". This select bar is found in the basic search criteria area of the Advanced Search. Click Search. Viola! Your search results show a column for each field you chose in your profile. Here is an example where we used this feature to create a class roster (profile) for the group "First Grade"
