Working with the Tithe.ly ChMS Live Interface
1 – Countdown Timer and Current Time
The Countdown Timer displays a few things:
- Counts down to the start of a service
- Counts down each individual item when it’s running
- Shows how far behind you are running with an item
- You can also click on the countdown timer to change how many minutes it will count down from.
2 – Service Information
In this section, you can view details about that service such as the date, time and service type.
3 – Controller Navigation
The ‘Next’ and ‘Previous’ buttons are only visible to the person in control. This is where the person in control can navigate through the service as different items from start and finish.
4 – Service Plan
If your service has a Service Plan set up, you can view the whole plan on the left-hand side.
The middle section shows you the current and upcoming service items in more detail (eg, you can view notes and attachments).
5 – Service & Personal Notes
Select ‘Notes’ to view Service or Personal notes.
Select ‘Service’ to see any notes written for the service. Service Notes are also locked down to departments assigned for the volunteer using Tithe.ly ChMS Live. Since a Super Admin has access to everything, they are still able to see all the notes written for the service.
Select ‘Personal’ to record any notes that you may have for a service. At any time, you can save a copy of the notes by emailing yourself a copy of the notes. Put in a valid email address when this window appears.
6 – Who’s Online & Chat
See who is currently logged in and communicate with other people logged into Tithe.ly ChMS LIVE. This is great to communicate to your service team regarding anything to do with the service – i.e. cues, issues or anything else.
