Ready for Easter.  Capacity control through reservations.

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

It's great to see how the vaccinations and our new habits seem to have turned the tide on Covid-19.  But, as you're planning for Easter, 2021; do you wish there was a way to do a better job of managing the numbers of people attending services.  Maybe our Covid lessons from last year can help.  Here's a slight reworking of the blog post from May, 2020 on how to use Churchteams to set up a worship reservation system.

How to recruit volunteers for Christmas Eve services.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 12/1/20 10:15 AM

I remember from my church staff days that it was all hands on deck for Christmas Eve  services.  I see the staff at my church today all working together to cover volunteer spots for these services just like we did.  Because it is such a special time for families, I doubt  this stretch for volunteers on Christmas Eve will ever change.  But, we can help.

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.

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.

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.
