Automated Group Registration (Based on Form Responses) - New Release!

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 6/19/18 6:30 AM
Problem:  When someone registers for something, the system simply puts them into that group (event, class, etc.).  In many cases responses people choose require manually transferring or copying them to another group for additional follow-up.

Best Practice w/ Feature Upgrade:  Check-in Everyone & Auto-Print Youth/Volunteer Name Tags

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 5/15/18 7:02 AM

The best place to connect with parents on Sunday morning is when they check-in their kids.  This is just as true for your members and regular attenders as it is for your guests.  You may already be using that time to start the follow-up process.  If not, see section D in the check-in view.  But, why not use the same opportunity to capture attendance for everything everyone in the family is attending or serving in that morning?

New! Browse Groups UI

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 4/24/18 7:20 AM

Helping people connect to groups has been a core feature in Churchteams since the beginning.  We started using the term Groupfinder for this feature back in 2001.  You customize the search options to fit your church and the questions you would ask to help someone find a group.  Then categorize the groups accordingly and people looking for groups can find a match themselves. This removes staff from being the bottleneck for connection, but notifies staff when connections are made to keep them in the loop.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 4/17/18 9:42 AM

Many churches that receive hundreds of checks every week use check readers and scanners to help with data entry. We recently did some research on these systems and built then released what we believe is a much more streamlined approach. Here is what we learned and our application.

NEW!  Registration, Volunteer, RSVP

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 11/21/17 7:03 AM

We've offered Event Registration and Volunteer Scheduling for years. But they have been far less obvious than most of our features and we wanted to elevate their visibility.  Late last week we released an upgrade to the Group Info Page to make what was less visible more visible and add a new RSVP feature.

What is Text-TO-Church?

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 10/24/17 7:30 AM

Text-TO-Church TM is a new User Interface concept.  It combines texting ideas that have been the domain of specialty platforms, with the functionality of a full church management system.  For over a decade people have been able to send a text to donate to an online giving platform.  In recent years applications were developed to text to register for something like an event or a content drip.  With Text-TO-Church, all the functionality of your church database is now just a text away.  Here's the list of current features that fit under the Text-TO-Church concept.  Click the link for a more complete explanation of each one.  The Text-To-Church Innovation post was written to help you actually experience everything except Text-to-ME which wasn't done at that time.

Text-to-ME!

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 10/10/17 7:54 AM

I have done several blog posts the past 4 months related to texting.  The response has been incredible.  We are excited to see this innovation engage guests, regular attenders, members  and staff in a new, extremely relevant way.  The more we have worked with it, the more we realize the potential of texting as a tool for simple and user-specific interface with your Churchteams database.
