In ADS you can/should mark your household members which are joining you at post or who stays at home. This is important information for the RSO, FMO, GSO, CLO, etc., and this status is also used on forms.

In this article you will learn where to find the place to edit/mark the family members joining you at post on orders and also without being on orders. 

We recommend to add every family member to ADS, if they come with you to post or not. That makes it easier for you with the next assignment, you just have to mark if they join you or not.
