With attendance and messaging already in the Church Center mobile app and on the web, it’s becoming the central spot for Groups-related activities.
And with the release of new event management options, attendance alerts, and RSVP responses, we’re excited to bring even more of those day-to-day tasks to your fingertips.
Events: Add, edit, and cancel
Have you needed to update event details recently or perhaps an event was rained out, requiring you to cancel? Or maybe you finally decided on when your next event is and would like to add it straight from the app?
From the Events tab on either the app or the web, group leaders are now able to add, edit, and cancel any event.
Attendance: Alerts and Past Events
Taking group attendance is one of those things you’re either super on top of and do during the event...or three days later when you’re making a cup of coffee.
But, we believe taking attendance is a helpful way to measure the health of your groups and member participation.
So as a way to encourage leaders to take attendance, we are now alerting leaders on the events page in Church Center if attendance has been missed for any previous event(s).
And when leaders go to their past events, they’ll see a brand new Take attendance button next to any outstanding events.
RSVPs: From Email to Church Center
Leaders and members can now respond from Church Center (both app and web).
From any event, you'll see a "respond" or "change your response" button towards the top! And if you're a leader, you can edit your member's responses with the pencil icon to the right of each person.
That's all for new updates, but we're excited to continue bringing even more features to leaders and members using Church Center in the months to come.
