You have access to a database full of people who attend your church! We want to help you use the database to connect with people and continue to follow up with them.


If you cannot log in, follow the steps in this article.


From a person's profile, you can see their contact information, household, and social profiles or school information.


From the Activity tab, you can also see the last time a person checked in, attended a group, served on a team, or registered for an event. If you don't have permissions in a product, you won't see activity for it.

Click the product name to enable or disable that product from the list.


You can also see any notes left on their profile.



If you're an Editor, you can also add notes.


If you need to contact groups of people, you can create a list, and then use bulk actions or automations to reach out to them.

Check out our Common Lists to see which one you might need.


Workflows help you move people through a process. You might already be assigned to some cards, so make sure you keep up to date with the workflows by checking the tab or updating your notifications.



If you have permission, you can also create workflows.

These requests to Support can only be made by organization administrators:

  • Data removal or corrections you can't make yourself (undo old CSV imports, iCal imports, etc)

  • Request promotional pricing (legacy plans, church plants, Giving contract promotion)

  • Gain access to anything that was created and managed by someone else in the account

  • Restore or fully delete a canceled account

  • Disconnect a Stripe account

  • Request access to Giving (if there are no current Giving administrators in the account)
