When a group is set to be visible to the App, it will appear in a list of Groups - this is like a group finder.

  1. Users will need to log into the Church App to view Groups.

  2. Users can view Groups they are a member of.

  3. Users can view all groups and search for groups.

Each group will have one of the following attributes:

  • Public - anyone can join (default)

  • Private - user would request to join
    In this case, a notification is sent through the app to the group leader requesting permission to join, a leader can approve or deny a request. If approved, members will receive a notification saying they have been added to the group.

Whether a group is private or public, Leaders and Group Members have the ability to invite others to join a Group.

    • Next, they will need to log into the Church App

      • If they do not have an account, they'll be prompted to create one

    • User will have to request to join or join the group that friend invited them to
