NEW! Advantages Of Being Agile.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 6/16/20 11:00 AM

One of our advantages in the church management market is our agile culture.  There is just one degree of separation between clients and our development team.  As soon as a need or even a suggestion is vetted by a support team member, it is shared with development. 

Development keeps a running evaluation of these suggestions.  Some are as simple as a software edit and are immediately addressed.  They don't even make it to the list.  Others need affirmation, thought and evaluation.  As they come up again and are mulled over, they make their way to the investment of a few hours or days.  Others are much more involved and may take months or years to rise to the level of investment of weeks or even months of coding.  This set of releases fit into the first two categories.

New!  Menu Make-Over

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 6/2/20 7:00 AM

We have an incredible team.  For a number of months now, in addition to all the Covid 19 upgrades we've done, we've been working on upgrading our Navigation Bar buttons to make them more user-friendly.

If you are a long-time Churchteams user, you know what the software does, so you will be able to very quickly re-route from older paths to these new ones that we hope are more direct and more intuitive especially for new users.

After months of social-distancing and live-streaming-only worship, it is exciting to hear the conversations about safely re-opening.  Two weeks ago we started getting calls about using our registration system for reservations to help manage re-opening at 25% to start.

Upgrade: Groupfinder Embed

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 3/3/20 10:15 AM
Communication coordinators are sometimes concerned about using hyperlinks that move people away from the website to other applications. 
 
Link Builder (under Communication tab) creates links or code to display a set of groups; like a small group groupfinder, list of mission opportunities, or upcoming youth events.  You pick the set of groups / events using the group profile questions and it builds both a link and iframe embed code for that set of groups.   See arrow below.

Check Scanning & Image Archive (New)

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 2/25/20 9:45 AM

We recently released an upgrade to our contributions system that includes the ability to archive the image of a check that is scanned into Churchteams.  We now offer this service to our clients for an additional $15 / month for up to 7 years of check storage.  The video below shows you how this service works.  But, let's start with some context.

Upgrade!  User / Leader Login for Giving and Activity

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 12/3/19 10:15 AM

Most non-staff attenders and leaders use Churchteams by completing a form, responding to a push notification (email or text) or by using Text-to-ChurchTM.  However, we've had a lot of requests for non-staff level access through a more traditional (email address with a password) login.  We released an upgrade yesterday to address this need.

Dashboard:  More tweaks for fewer clicks

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 11/26/19 10:32 AM

We've found that no matter how detailed we get in the development stage, there are always things to sharpen when upgrades go into production.  This has been true of the Dashboard release we did at the end of October.  I already shared about the Search and Legal Name additions.  Here are a few more tweaks that we released just yesterday. Take some time to master them and you'll be more efficient with Churchteams than ever before.
