Subgroup Resources #

The existing Ministry Group Leader Resources feature in Church Tools has been extended to allow leaders to share resources with their members. These resources can be uploaded both from Sunergo Church Tools and Sunergo Connect by leaders with the correct permissions. Resources can be either files or external links and are shared throughout the whole Ministry Group.

Leaders have the option of restricting resources to only display for other leaders when creating a new resource.

Adding a new resource page with the leaders only option.

If you are an existing Church Tools client the current Resource Groups will all be set to No for the new Is Public option. This default behaviour will avoid any sensitive files being shared unintentionally to new congregant accounts. Please set the desired Resource Groups to “Public” in Church Tools.

Subgroup Members #

Leaders can add a new member, take attendance, and send a mass email to the subgroup all under the Members Tab.
