Ongoing Updates: 29th October - 11th December 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 29th October and 11th December 2015.


  • 10-Dec-2015 Approving Booking clashesThere's a new module option for the Bookings module that allows you to select whether it's just Admin users or anyone with Manage permission who can approve a booking that clashes with another.
  • 09-Dec-2015 Improved Word paste detectionWe've updated our email editor to improve "paste detection" from Microsoft Word. Pasted text is now automatically cleaned up to prevent common formatting issues. We've also added in a "Clear formatting" button to further help.
  • 27-Nov-2015 Booking ChangelogWe now log and display changes to bookings on view of a booking
  • 26-Nov-2015 Markdown support in NotesNotes throughout ChurchApp support Markdown formatting, allowing you to add basic text formatting throughout the system. https://help.github.com/articles/markdown-basics/
  • 26-Nov-2015 Statement of Donations Notes columnWhen generating a Statement of Donations, you can now choose to include the donation Notes column, if you wish.
  • 26-Nov-2015 Giving batchesWhen adding in a new batch of donations, you can now choose the fund for each donation, rather than having to create separate batches for separate funds. You can also click through from a donation to its batch to see the full details of the batch.
  • 24-Nov-2015 Stripe Transfer ReportsWe now have a Stripe Transfer Report for the giving module, which links to the Calendar Stripe Transfer Report if the user has the correct permissions.
  • 16-Nov-2015 North American churches - Tax deductible givingFor North American churches, you can now specify whether a donation is tax deductible or not, which carries through to statements of donation and also My ChurchApp.
  • 12-Nov-2015 Rota - multi-line notesYou can now add multi-line notes to your rota dates.
  • 12-Nov-2015 Disabled communication actionsWhen you're viewing a contact, child or giver profile, if you're not able to send them an email or SMS since they don't have an email address or mobile number listed, those actions are now disabled from the "Communicate" drop-down list.
  • 12-Nov-2015 Giving ReportsIn our Giving reports, where applicable, you can now filter by multiple Funds as well as add the givers in view to a tag.
  • 10-Nov-2015 Small Groups Advanced SearchYou can now search custom fields in the SmallGroups module advanced search

  • 03-Dec-2015 Visitor auto-deleteThrough the Children module options, you can now select the time period after which Visitors are deleted from the system. The default setting is that if someone hasn't been checked in for 3 months, their details are removed, but you can extend or reduce that, if you wish.
  • 01-Dec-2015 Check-In visitor notesThrough the Children module options, you can now enable a "Notes" field that is shown when checking in a visitor. You might use the field for contact details, notes of siblings being in other groups, etc.
  • 20-Nov-2015 More customisable check-in badgesThrough the Children module options, you can now choose which field of information appear on room and child badges. For example, you can choose to exclude a child's last name and the check-in code if you wanted.
