It's only a few weeks since we released our embeddable church website calendar powered by all the event information that's stored in ChurchApp, and today we've got another related update to release, making it even easier for church members to sign up for events through ChurchApp Public.
Your church members could already browse your church calendar through ChurchApp Public, and we're delighted to announce that we've refined the whole process, making it even more user-friendly and bringing it inline with how the embeddable church calendar works.
ChurchApp always allowed your church members to sign up for events, but it's now even clearer which events can be signed up for, and there's even a handy list that shows you which events you've signed up for too. When viewing the calendar, if an event can be signed up for, there's a small icon of a box with a tick in it; if you've signed up for the event, the box is filled with colour.
The "My Events" list shows you all events you've signed up for (either through ChurchApp Public or by sending in an SMS). Clicking on the event's name brings up the details for the event in the same way it does if you click on an event inside the calendar.
Signed up for an event you're no longer able to attend? No problem — we've got that covered too! Just click on the event you need to cancel your sign-up for and you'll be able to cancel the sign-up, removing yourself from the event attendees list.
As we work towards our goal of helping the Church go paperless, we're convinced that these enhancements will go a long way to encouraging church members to sign up for events online, alongside helping them keep on top of what they're due to attend.
We've got significant updates planned for ChurchApp Public over the coming months, enabling online rota swapping, management of church online giving and much, much more.
This is just the beginning.
