Setting up church tools to fit your ministry’s needs is easy. You’ll find most of the setup options in the Admin Menu.
This menu is only visible to users that have been assigned to a User Group with the appropriate permissions.
Foreign Currencies Tool #
This tool allows you to set the currencies you can use in Gift Entry.
If your church accepts online donations, these currencies won’t show up there. Only Canadian dollars are accepted in online donations.
Church Life Events #
This tool lists the possible events that can be recorded for each contact.
This is also where you can also set up expiring church life events. When editing an event, you can set the time the event is valid, who to email when the event is about to expire, and how many before the expiry you would like the email to be sent.
Contact Status #
You can set different attributes for contacts here.
- Marital and membership statuses are set in Contact and can be used to filter your contact lists.
- Directory statuses are set in Contact and show up in the church directory.
