Tips for Personal Information

  • Use the Given Name, the legal first name of the person, in associating a check from a person who goes by a different name. Use the Nickname if a person regularly goes by another name in addition to this one.
  • If you're editing a phone number or address with the type set to Home, you can update it for all members in the same household from the Primary person's personal information.
  • If there is no mobile number, it will show the first listed number. Mobile numbers will be shown on a mobile device and will take you to your SMS app.
  • The first home email address will open your email program to send an email to that address.
  • Age is shown in months until 2 years and is used in Check-Ins location filters.
  • If you want to add a birthday with no year, type it in manually rather than using the picker and use 1885 as the birth year, which will show no age.
  • A Child can log in but cannot make changes to their profile.
  • Managers can customize the marital status options.
2. Membership, Campus, & Background Checks

Use the dropdowns to change the membership status, campus, or run a background check.

If the background check has already been added and cleared, the symbol will be green; if it was not cleared, it will be red.

3. Settings

When a person leaves your church, set them as inactive, removing any permissions they have in any app. They will no longer be able to log in, but their history will remain intact.

The settings are only available to Managers.

4. Households

Select the pencil next to the Household name to add or remove people in the household.

Edit a single household
  1. Name the household. The last name will be the name by default unless you change it.
  2. The Primary contact for a household is denoted by the green label. Select the gear to make changes.
  3. When you select the gear, you can either remove the person from the household or make them the primary person in the household.
    Removing them from the household will not remove them from the database.
  4. Add a new person to the household by searching for people who already exist in your database.
  5. Delete the household from your database. No people are deleted, only the Household.

Select Save to keep your changes or cancel to remove any changes. Select Other Households in the top right to access or add the person to another household.
