Six weeks ago we released the Member App. Many of our clients have jumped in with both feet using all of the features. Some have other systems in place that are similar and are still in process of evaluating how to best use the Churchteams App.
Still others haven't jumped in. If that's you, come on in! The water is great. You'll love the functionality for staff as well as members.
As is usual in a release of this magnitude, new insights and ideas come up as people swim around in it. We've already done several upgrades and just released four more. The first two add to the App. The last three are settings that hide extra parts of the app.
- Access Text-To-Chat from within the Member App
- Add a logo to login pages
- Remove Volunteer section, Chat, and Directory
- Remove active events
- Next Meeting Date removed when Meeting Report Reminders are off
1. Access Text-To-Chat access from within the Member App
For churches using both Text-to-Church and the App, we added Chat access to the App. When members login they will see the Chat bubble on the top left.
Clicking the bubble opens their texting app and enters the Text-to-Church number. They are now ready to communicate anything from prayer requests to theological questions using Text-to-Chat.
When staff login they will see the T2C Chat bubble they are used to seeing on their computer screen when logged in.
Clicking this will take them to the Chat area in the App to respond.
NOTE: By default this feature is OFF for current clients. Go to Settings > Accessibility to turn it on. (See image in the next section.) For new clients it will be on by default.
