Ongoing Updates: 8th May - 28th May 2015

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 8th May and 28th May 2015.


  • 27-May-2015 Add sign-ups to key dateYou can now add people who have signed up to an event to a key date from the Event page in ChurchApp.
  • 21-May-2015 Child communication by school yearFrom the "Years" report in the Children module, you can now select to communicate with all the children in a given school year - perfect for communicating in advance about an upcoming change in age group before the new term.
  • 21-May-2015 Once in a FlowWe now ensure that a contact is only able to appear once in a flow.
  • 20-May-2015 Administrator tagsYou can now assign tags that don't necessarily exist to new contacts and children from the module edit screens.
  • 20-May-2015 Children gathering maximum ageYou can now specify the upper age limit for a gathering, giving you more control over the children who will be suggested for check-in groups.
  • 18-May-2015 User Index UI amendsTo maintain a consistent UI across ChurchApp, the column on the User list page in the Administrator section which shows whether a user is active on the system or not has been replaced by a View Active/All link at the top of the table.
  • 18-May-2015 User management changesThe form to add and edit a user in ChurchApp is now more logical and clear.
  • 15-May-2015 Flow examplesWe've added in 5 example flows that you can choose to install as a basis from which you might build your own flows. The examples include Newcomer Integration, Join a Group, Become a Member, etc.
  • 13-May-2015 Ministry Members ReportWe have added statistics to the top of the Ministry Members report in the Rotas module so that you can easily see how many contacts and children are being displayed.
  • 12-May-2015 Children Attendance ReportingWe now have an Attendance Summary report in the Children module. This report shows recent attendance inline for each child on a single page.
  • 08-May-2015 Filter by dates and tags in Statistics report in Address Book.Within the Statistics report in Address Book, users can now filter by date and tags.
  • 08-May-2015 Duplicated Children ReportWe now provide a report, similar to the duplicated contacts report, which allows you to easily identify possible duplicates in the Children module. /modules/children/report_cleansing_duplicates.php


  • 20-May-2015 Check-in without a PINIf you click on an "Unlock" button in the check-in system when there's no PIN number on the session, you're no longer asked to enter the PIN - it just performs the unlock action immediately.
  • 20-May-2015 Check-in group notesWhen in the Admin area for child check-in, you can now record notes against each group - perfect for recording an incident log or even a summary of what the session's topic for historical records.
  • 18-May-2015 Connect session suggestionsWhen selecting a session name from the "Suggested Sessions" list we now set-up all the options with the same settings used the last time the session was created.

‚ÄčIf you have any thoughts or suggestions for us, please let us know - we'd love to hear from you.
