August 31st, 2022 "View changes" updates

We've changed how you can access the log of recent changes - there's now a "More > View changes" action button at the top of most pages. Previously, some pages had a Changes section at the bottom of the page, this has now been removed in favour of the consistent "View changes" action button.

August 11th, 2022 Granular Visibility Options for Small Group members

Small Group members can now control their privacy settings for each group they belong to through a new "Edit my visibility" option on the group page in My ChurchSuite. Members can optionally choose to override their default privacy settings, giving them granular control over which details are visible to other members of that group. Small Groups module users can also manage a group member's visibility settings on behalf of group members. We've also added a My ChurchSuite option in the module's settings, enabling you to further customise the message shown on the "Edit my visibility" pop-up.

July 28th, 2022 Suggested giving frequencies on Donate and Fund pages

Donate now allow you to pre-select a Frequency for the giver when the page loads. Simply adding ?frequency=X to the end of the Donate or Fund Page URL (where X is 'weekly' or 'monthly') will pre-populate the Frequency field based on today's date. This can also be combined with a pre-selected donation amount.

July 22nd, 2022 Group 'Embed Configurations'

We've done away with our old way of generating embed codes for small groups in favour of new 'Embed Configurations'. You can now generate multiple reusable and editable configurations and paste them into your website. Any changes made in ChurchSuite will be immediately reflected on your website helping you keep all of the controls in one place. Along side our new 'Labels' feature these new configurations will help you categorise and publicise your groups more effectively.

July 22nd, 2022 Small Group Labels are replacing Tags

We've launched a new feature to the Small Groups module called 'Labels', a more flexible and categorisable alternative to Tags. We'll be removing Tags from the system at the end of 2022 - you can migrate your tags data over using our 'Migrate Tags' action. Watch the video to find out more.

July 14th, 2022 Select/Deselect All when adding Small Group attendance

We've added a "Select/Deselect All" option to the small group add and edit attendance pop-ups in ChurchSuite to help alleviate unnecessary name ticking. For example, the "Deselect All" could be used to anonymise historic attendance names while preserving the 'number in attendance' for reporting purposes. Ideal where your data retention policy requires you to scale back attendance-related personal data when it's no longer needed.

July 7th, 2022 Default email templates

We've added an option to the Administrator Profile to choose a default email template that will be pre-selected when your users compose messages.

July 1st, 2022 Engagement tab updates

We've made some updates to the Engagement tab for contacts, children and givers. Not only have we improved performance, reducing page load times, but we've also make some small visual tweaks to bring better consistency across the whole system. Alongside this, we've added actions such as "Add to flow" / "Add to group", making it easier than ever to manage flow/group membership. Finally, we've added additional filters to some of the widgets, making it possible to view past/future group membership as well as filtering between the rotas/ministries someone is engaged with.

June 27th, 2022 Account first day of the week

We've moved the 'Week Starts On' Calendar module option to now be an account wide option which is set from the Administrator Profile. This setting controls the first day of the week on date pickers, and when viewing calendars in ChurchSuite, Embed and My ChurchSuite.
