Ongoing Updates: 22nd July - 26th August 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 22nd July and 26th August 2015.


  • 24-Aug-2015 Improved ReportsWe are improving our reports and now you can download the majority of the reports as a PDF as well as CSV.
  • 21-Aug-2015 Embeddable Donate formYou can now embed the ChurchApp Donate page into your church website; for security reasons, when you click through to proceed with the donation, you're taken away from your church website and to the secure ChurchApp servers where the transaction can proceed.
  • 19-Aug-2015 Re-designed SMS popupThe SMS popup that displays when you select to "Send SMS" has been redesigned so that it fits better with the look and feel of the email popup. We've also added in the ability to personalise SMS messages with merge fields.
  • 19-Aug-2015 Advanced search added to Giving moduleGiver index now has advanced search, so users can now look for givers based on name, address, bank or giver reference numbers and postcode.
  • 13-Aug-2015 Email/SMS opt-outAgainst each contact and child, when editing their details, you'll find two new controls that allow you to opt the person out of receiving email or SMS contact. This is a global override and will prevent them from receiving communication under all circumstances - both communication from ChurchApp and My ChurchApp.
  • 12-Aug-2015 Inverting tagsA handy new feature that lets you see everyone who's NOT in a tag. Just click through to view a tag and then tick the "Invert" box and filter.
  • 11-Aug-2015 Households reportList of all households and number of contacts/children living at that address.
  • 10-Aug-2015 Improved app loginThe account field on our apps now auto-suggests your church, making it even easier to log in.
  • 28-Jul-2015 Ministry IndexThe ministry search now has auto-suggest
  • 27-Jul-2015 Rota remindersOur Rota reminder emails now send out with a footer containing the following information; rota name, serving date and time, serving notes (if applicable), serving roles (if the contact has any) and the ministries description.
  • 24-Jul-2015 Event Details ReportThe event details report, in the Calendar module, is now much more versatile. We now include the week day in the date titles as well as give you the option to display the event locations and overseers.


  • 26-Aug-2015 Check-in visitor genderWhen checking in a child through our child check-in system, you're now given the option to record the child's gender.
  • 05-Aug-2015 My Details auto-response emailThrough the Address Book module options, you can now specify a preset email to be sent automatically through to someone when they complete the My Details form in ChurchApp Connect.
  • 31-Jul-2015 Application switchingWithin ChurchApp Connect, you can now switch easily between the applications that are available to your user. When you're logged in, in the lower-left corner you'll find a menu that you can use to switch between My Details, Connect and the main menu.
  • 29-Jul-2015 Update contact details through "My Details" formYou can now edit existing contacts in addition to adding new contacts through the "My Details" form in ChurchApp Connect. Once the edit mode has been enabled, at the top of the page, you're able to switch between adding a new contact and searching for and editing an existing one. When editing an existing one, key portions of the contact details are masked out for data security.
