Frequently Asked Questions

https://wi.4honline.com

Can I e-mail directly from 4honline? Unfortunately, at this time, the system will not allow this feature for leaders or club managers, but you will be able to access the latest contact information for your projects and clubs and copy and paste that info into your own e-mail system.

Will 4honline e-mail me when new contacts are added or member information is changed?
No, you will have to log on and confirm members regularly. In addition, please remind members to let you know if they have entered any changes for your records. Best practices recommend using this system as a living document, rather than printing list(s) at the beginning of the year that you expect to use throughout the year.

Can I change member information if I see it is incorrect? Yes you are able to change some limited information, however, it might be best practice to send the enrollment back to the user so they are aware of any changes that need to be made?

Is there ANYWAY I can enroll on paper? We have decided at this time to limit enrollment to the 4honline system. There are numerous ways for us to be able to work with you to enter your information into the system. Some of these options include:

  • Utilizing a “club buddy” to assist you or your leaders with enrollment.
  • Scheduling an appointment with 4-H staff to get access and assistance.

Do I have to have an e-mail in order to enroll with 4honline?  Your family must have an e-mail in order to enroll. You can obtain an e-mail for free at google, yahoo, hotmail etc. If you do not want to obtain a functional e-mail address you may enter firstnamelastname@nomail.com, but please understand that some correspondence may not reach you timely or efficiently without a functional address.

I volunteered to be the club enrollment manager. How do I ensure I am enrolled as club manager? Once you enroll staff will assign you as club manager. Be sure to check the box indicating that you are a volunteer. This will provide you with access to all enrollment information for the club. As club manager you will confirm enrollment for each leader and member in your club.

Someone enrolled in my club and I have no idea who they are. Although rare, you may find that a new member has enrolled in your club without previous contact. Please use the contact information provided to touch base and ensure that they are welcomed and understand the club’s process.

I am/want to be a project leader how do I enroll for this project? Enrolling as a leader in a project at the club or county level is the same as a member enrolling in that project. The only difference is when you select a project you will select the project with letters LDR behind the project name. Do not select a leader type. Your status as a certified volunteer leader will not be approved until you have gone through the required Volunteer Leader Training.

How long will members be able to access and change project information?  Families will be able to access project information throughout the year, however, only projects enrolled in as of April 1 will be eligible to be shown at the fair for the upcoming year.

Is my information secure? Yes, 4honline uses a secure site that encrypts all data entered.

Can adults sign up without going through training? It appeared to me that they just need to enter their personal information. I can’t see where it’s verified that they are certified. Am I missing something?  They can enter their information into the system, but the county is in control of approving their enrollment after screening is completed just like before. The adult leader enrollment will be in a pending status until someone in the county approves it.

Do you need all of my child’s health information upon enrollment? While it is not necessary to enter all of this information for enrollment in the 4-H Program, it will be required for camp, trips, and other programs throughout the year. You can complete it at enrollment time, or will be prompted to complete it at another time for these events.
