New:  SERVICE VOLUNTEERS. Top Tier Upgrade.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 6/7/21 10:30 AM

Six years ago we released an initial version of our volunteer scheduling feature.  It has been updated many times since then, but nothing like we are rolling out tonight.  Tonight's release of SERVICE VOLUNTEERS fills in the gaps to elevate this feature to the very top tier in the industry.

Our Volunteers feature lets you create a group and then schedule that team to serve.  With SERVICE VOLUNTEERS you create Templates made up of all the groups serving during a given service. 

Using the template you can schedule volunteers across all teams, see blocked out dates, potential conflicts, email or text everyone, and choose from 3 options for volunteers to get their own substitutes.

Our relationship with you guys is the secret sauce to Churchteams truly being a software that we are building together!  Here are 10 upgrades in the past 2 months.

New!  Automate promotion and birthdays.

There are a ton of administrative details related to your ministry.  These feel like tedious, repetitive tasks that have to be done each day, week and month.  On top of the important tasks, urgent ones keep screaming for your attention.  It can make you feel overwhelmed and stressed.

New! Charting ministries. Reports_Save_Me_Time

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 4/20/21 11:00 AM
Last week we looked at our upgrade to the Group Summary report and talked about why consistency is helpful for identifying groups that need extra attention.  This has huge value for the pastor in charge of that ministry.
 
Similarly, a summary of various ministries gives the Sr. Pastor, Executive, or Leadership team the ability to identify the make up and relative health of the various ministries that they oversee.  They want to see the consistency of children's ministry compared to student ministry, or the consistency of adult small groups compared to worship.  It helps them have a feel for where the wind is blowing and which ministries need attention.

Group consistency, a report upgrade, & automation.

In discipleship discussions, we often quote 2 Timothy 2:2 as a pillar text for understanding discipleship that multiplies disciples.  The idea, of course, is that Paul invested in training Timothy and was encouraging him to invest in other people who would invest in others.  

Notice the adjective that Paul uses to describe the people in whom Timothy was to invest his time.  Depending on your translation, the word is generally reliable (NIV, NLT), or faithful (ESV, NASB, KJV).  It is someone in whom you trust.

New! Roundtable releases.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 3/30/21 10:30 AM

Another huge benefit of the Roundtables that we've been doing the past couple of months has been the amazing ideas for upgrades and tweaks we've gotten as we interact with our most engaged users.

Many of the upgrades in this post came from that environment.  Some came directly through support.  All of them are a picture of our commitment to build the best software for churches in the context of community.

New! Upgrades to meet post-Covid expectations.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 2/9/21 3:00 PM

The story of 2020 will always be the global pandemic of Covid-19.  All of us are different.  It's worth the time to log what we've lost and grieve it well.  It's also worth the time to examine what we've gained and how to build on it. I hope you're doing that personally and as a church. 

The upgrades we've released the past few months reflect insights gained from working closely with clients in 2020.  Some of these are really minute, but the first one in particular positions us well for the post-Covid expectations of performance at the peak time of Sunday mornings.
