About the app

Now you and your members can sync your church's directory right to an iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini, Android device or Kindle Fire!

Members can search for a family or member, and then email, call or text — right from their device. Plus, any change you make to the online directory is immediately synced with their device.

Where to download the app

To download the app, click the appropriate image for your device:

Enable Mobile App Access

To enable the app feature for your members:

  • Log in to your Account
  • Choose Step 6 - Settings
  • Enable Mobile App Access

Who has access?

You’re worried about security and privacy, and so are we. Members have to register each device and directories can’t be shared. Further, only members you authorize can gain access and directories are automatically “wiped” from all their devices if you revoke access.

This upgrade provides a unified login experience across all platforms and devices without sacrificing security. See below for information that will help you and your members.
  2. View all Groups and see the members of each Group.
  3. View a Birthday list by month.

While you cannot send mass text messages through the app to the entire congregation, you can send another member within the app a personal text message from the App.


This will act as a regular text message, so standard text plan costs will apply.


 


For iPhone:


 


Versions 8.3 or above – Simply press and hold on the phone number of the member you are wanting to text. This will allow you to either or call text that number.


 


Versions prior to 8.3 – Simply click the phone number and a new text message window will appear.


While the administrator login is different than the member login, you can opt to use the same password, if it is within the password requirements of at least 8 characters, one number and one capital letter.

No – since their username must be their email address the only way it can be changed is if they request to change their email address altogether.

  1. Download the app from the App Store.

  2. Be sure they are on the page that says “Request Access”.
