Ongoing Updates: 27th January - 23rd February 2016

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 27th January - 23rd February 2016.


  • 23-Feb-2016 Embed Calendar TweaksWe now only show 4 events on a date in our embedded calendar. The other events can be shown by clicking a "More/Less" toggle. This makes the calendar a lot easier to view for busy months.
  • 23-Feb-2016 Cancelling scheduled emailsWe've rebuilt our processes to cancel scheduled, which now provide much better progress to the user about how many have been cancelled and how many are still being processed.
  • 15-Feb-2016 Giving - Gift Aid reportsWe've consolidated the Gift Aid reports into a single report, which includes additional filter options to help you identify claimable/claimed/unclaimed/not claimable donations.
  • 12-Feb-2016 Children Attendance ReportsWe've added two new reports into the Children's module: attendance graph generator and attendance monthly breakdown. Making it easier to track attendance across your children groups.
  • 11-Feb-2016 Add to ministry from a rotaWhen viewing a rota you can now add members to a ministry team if they aren't already in one.
  • 10-Feb-2016 Duplicating EventsYou can now choose to duplicate the event photo (or upload a different one) when duplicating an event.
  • 10-Feb-2016 PNG ImagesThroughout ChurchApp you are now able to upload PNG images. This gives you more creative ability since PNGs support transparency.
  • 09-Feb-2016 PDF address label adjustmentsWe've adjusted how addresses are formatted when you generate an Avery label sheet, now centring them within the label height and adjusted font sizes for longer addresses.
  • 08-Feb-2016 Expanded custom fieldsYou can now have up to 10 custom fields for contacts, children and smallgroups.
  • 08-Feb-2016 My ChurchApp - Custom privacy messageYou can now edit text to appear above the Privacy Settings checkboxes within My ChurchApp - you can use it to outline who will be able to see a members' details or link to the church's privacy policy.
  • 08-Feb-2016 Change payment cardYou can now change your payment card through the Billing section. This will cancel your current subscription and take you through to setup a new subscription.
  • 08-Feb-2016 Personalise Flow emailsWhen processing someone through a Flow, if an action is to send out a preset email, you can now choose to "Personalise" the email for the recipient before it's sent. This doesn't make changes to the preset email, it simply personalises the email the recipient receives.
  • 08-Feb-2016 Givers ImportFrom the Givers index page you can now import from CSV all your givers. This functionality works in the same way that contact import works.
  • 02-Feb-2016 Smart tag postcode searchWhen using a smart tag to match people in a specific postcode, you an now use the underscore ("_") character to represent a space. For example "NG1_" would match "NG1 1AA" but would not match "NG11 2BB".
  • 02-Feb-2016 Slovak TranslationsWe have now added Slovak translations into our member-facing systems including; My ChurchApp, Connect and Donate.
  • 02-Feb-2016 Attendance layout/colour updatesWhen viewing attendance data in the Attendance module, the layout has been updated to include the colours assigned to each category, making it easier to distinguish between section.
  • 01-Feb-2016 Form field clarityWe've adjusted the padding and border colour of form fields to increase clarity and readability throughout the system.
  • 01-Feb-2016 Created time and userOn all of our edit pages we now display the created time and the user at the bottom of the edit form.
  • 29-Jan-2016 Multisite Colour CodingMultisite now has colour! Making location reports much more user friendly.
  • 27-Jan-2016 Rota team rotation optionWhen generating a rota, you're now able to select which teams for your ministry you'd like to rotate in the rota. For example, you could exclude one team entirely, if you use that team for a "Reserve List" or something similar, leaving the contacts within the ministry, but not on a serving rotation.

My ChurchApp

  • 09-Feb-2016 Email/SMS Opt-OutYou can now change your Email/SMS opt-out settings in My Details and My Children.
  • 29-Jan-2016 Event artwork consistencyWhenever event artwork is displayed within a list, for example as a Featured Event or within the My Events section, it is now displayed in 16:9 aspect ratio. When viewed on the event page it remains displayed in its original aspect ratio.
