Posts are used to communicate with your congregation within the Member Area. They’re a great way to share updates, articles and any other other dynamically updated information you might have with your members or volunteers.
Posts can be locked down to certain people, and they can also be categorized for easy navigation.
Pages allow you to add static pages of content to the Member Area of your account. An example of a static page could be an ‘About’ page that displays information about volunteering in your church, or a page that is linked to your church website.
Like Posts, Pages can also be limited and restricted down to different people.
The Member Directory serves as a place where members can access a predefined list of church members and their contact details in the Member Area.
When setting up a Member Directory, admins can select which people categories or demographics are to be listed, as well as lock down the area to only show members and families connected to a person’s departments or groups. As an extra custom privacy option, individuals can select to hide certain fields in their profile within the My Account area.
Having a Member Directory available in your account can be useful for volunteers wanting to get in contact with different leaders or members within the groups they are a part of, and provides an easy way for getting details of the people they need.
For privacy purposes, we recommend hiding your ‘children’ demographic from the Member Directory.
Links allows you to add links to any other website you choose. This is useful if you want to provide a link back to a website or to a form. Links are viewable in the Member Area only.
