We're constantly updating and enhancing ChurchApp, often building directly upon customer feedback to guide our development. The following lists some changes that were made to ChurchApp between 13th March and 10th April 2015.
09-Apr-2015 - Flows - send ChurchApp emails
You can now use the "Send email" action in your flow stages to send ChurchApp emails (My ChurchApp Invite and My ChurchApp Details Reminder) to your contacts.
09-Apr-2015 - Flows - archive contact
You can now add an action to your flow stages which will archive the contact.
09-Apr-2015 - Add contacts and children to tags
Throughout ChurchApp we are now allowing users to add contacts and/or children to tags on screens which list both contacts and children.
08-Apr-2015 - Export small group details to CSV
Details of small groups (dates and times, location, description) can now be exported to CSV, as well as details of the members within those groups.
07-Apr-2015 - Move back a Flow stage
When you're viewing a flow, you'll now find the ability to move a person back one stage from the actions menu - perfect for when you've accidentally moved someone forward and didn't intend to.
01-Apr-2015 - Day and date selection in Rotas Overview report
The Rotas Overview report now includes a date range selection, and options to filter by days of the week.
31-Mar-2015 - Record label communication for children
Within the Children module, when you generate a PDF for labels/envelopes, you now have the option to record the communication in the Communication Log in the same way that you can for contacts in the Address Book.
30-Mar-2015 - Leave line managers
You can now define "Line Managers" for each leave setup profile, who will receive through automated emails each time a user they line manage enters new leave.
24-Mar-2015 - Print badges for events with sign-up
If an event has sign-up enabled, badges can now be printed for people who are attending.
20-Mar-2015 - Better "forgotten password" processes
We've completely overhauled the "forgotten password" system so that you can now reset your password earlier in the process. The new user welcome email has also been tweaked slightly.
18-Mar-2015 - Check-in barcodes report
New report which lists all children that have barcodes for use in Check-In. When a barcode is selected, all children with the same barcode are listed.
16-Mar-2015 - Exclude Attendance group from totals
If you want to use the Attendance module to track a non-people metric such as the collection total or the percentage of chairs that were empty in the meeting, you can now select which stats should be "Included in Total" for each week.
13-Mar-2015 - Multiple email addresses for Areas of Interest
You can now set "Areas of Interest" emails to go through to multiple email addresses by editing the email address within the Address Book module options. If you want to send to multiple email addresses, simply separate them with commas.
30-Mar-2015 - Improved handling for embedded event pages
When you embed an event page into your website, once you submit the form, it will open a new browser tab with the ticket selection - this gets around a browser bug with third-party cookie detection.
16-Mar-2015 - Improved German translations
Across all of our member-facing systems (Connect, Donate, Events and My ChurchApp), we've improved the way we handle and translate dates and times into the relevant locales. German translation has been thoroughly reviewed and updated.
If you have any thoughts or suggestions for us, please let us know - we'd love to hear from you.
