Successful church management is about working together as both individuals and groups. This involves file sharing, communication and calendar management.
1. Go to Groups
Ensure you are on the Intranet.
Click Groups, located on the left side of your screen.
Tip: You can also go to the individual groups of which you are a member. They are located under the navigation menu on the left side of your screen.
2. About the Groups in ChurchDesk
Groups are a way of keeping files, communication and calendar planning separated between users. It involves:
Files: When uploading files to the system, you will have to associate them with a group. They will only be visible in the system for members of that group.
Calendar planning: Events and Absence will be associated with a group. If you are not a member of the group, you will not be able to see it in the calendar.
Communication: You will be able to communicate within the different groups. Write a message that automatically goes out via app notification, email or SMS. You will also be able to create a blog post that group members can comment on.
Tasks: Assign a group a task that they are capable of doing. Maybe members of the group "Choir" can handle "choir tasks" or a group of volunteers can cleaning.
