Church Apps
Hello Church Apps Customers,
It is becoming more and more popular for applications requiring a login to offer email links, social media accounts and Apple/Google links to login directly to the application without resetting their user password. Tithely is continually working to meet/match industry standards so that our users can experience the same ease of use that other applications offer.
Your members now have several ways to log into their church account in the app.
Email and Password
- members inputting their user name and password can still use that method to login.
Email link
- users can input their email address and we will send an email to them with a link that when tapped will sign them in to the app. This is really helpful when members forget their password. They do not need to reset the password, we just connect all the dots behind the scenes and log them in as long as they use the email address that is connected to their account - they are logged in.
Facebook
- members can now log in using their Facebook account.
Apple
- if using an iPhone, users can now log in using their Apple ID information.
Google
- if using an Android device, users can now log in using their Google login information.

Church Apps
Hello Church Apps customers,
Our Beta and Early Access testing has gone really well and we are happy to announce we have promoted this feature to General Release. This means that every Church Apps dashboard now has Layout Editor in the left navigation panel of their dashboard.

We have updated the short how-to videos to make sure all of the user interface changes we made during early access are reflected - you can find those here.
Thank you to all of the Churches that joined us early to participate in Alpha, Beta and Early Access testing!
ChMS ELVANTO | Mobile Notifications Now Available for Elvanto Group Chat!
new
improved
Elvanto
Hello Elvanto users!
I’m so excited to share with you that we have released a new setting to our existing group chat feature that allows you to get mobile notifications on your device using the Elvanto app!
Screenshot 2023-02-08 at 3
Up until now, this chat feature only allowed for email notifications, which isn't as helpful in our fast-paced world of communication.
Enabling mobile notifications now allows you to get push notifications on your phone or tablet as long as you have the Elvanto app downloaded!
Screenshot 2023-02-08 at 3
Whether your leaders are using group messaging as a typical chat or a simple message board, by clicking on the notification, you'll be brought directly to the chat or message board for that group so that you can either reply or just stay in the know!
To learn more about group chat in Elvanto check out our article called Using Group Chat In Elvanto.
If this is your first time exploring this feature, there are also some admin settings to check out for group communicaton at the Group Category level. This is where admin can decide who can post messages (leaders or all group memebers) and whether or not you want a chat or a message board for your group. You can find out more about that in the article called Setting Up Group Categories.

ChMS ELVANTO | SongSelect 2.0 Maintenance
improved
fixed
Elvanto
Hello Elvanto Users!
Due to SongSelect phasing out the 1.0 version of their software, Elvanto has updated our integration with them in order to utilize their new 2.0 version.
Screen Shot 2022-12-14 at 7
While this will not change any functionality within Elvanto in the Songs area at this time, this update does require that you delete your integration and re-add it using your same login details for SongSelect if you plan to continue using the integration.
If you do not, you will experience errors when trying to import chord charts via SongSelect or when adding new songs via CCLI.
We hope this is helpful information! If you need a reminder on how to delete and re-add this integration, please refer to this setup guide, and as always, feel free to reach out to support@tithe.ly with any questions that arise.

Elvanto

ChMS ELVANTO | SSO for Tithely Admin Phase One
new
improved
Elvanto
Hello Elvanto users!
If you have a Tithely subscription plan, we are incredibly excited to announce that we have released the first phase of Single-sign-on (SSO) from Tithely to Elvanto for
Tithely Admin
users!
Additionally, we have given Tithely Account Owners and Tithely Admin the ability to trigger Super Admin creation and removal of that status for Elvanto profiles. Details below!
Why did we make this update?
Up until now, only one person from each Tithely account subscription (the Account Owner) could use the "ChMS" button in the Tithely Dashboard in order to get to Elvanto. During the initial setup of the account, the Account Owner had not only to add Admin users to Tithely but then also create profiles and designate those profiles as Super Admin in Elvanto. Additionally, they had to share a separate Elvanto login and URL with this user, and they would have to log in separately to Tithely and Elvanto moving forward.
Now
when an
Admin
is added to the Users area in Tithely, they are automatically added as Super Admin in Elvanto (or linked to their existing Elvanto account). Tithely Admin can also now use the "ChMS" button to navigate into their Elvanto account directly without a separate login for Elvanto!
Screen Shot 2022-11-30 at 2
What about phase two?
In phase two, we will expand this functionality to Limited Access users as well. More to come on that in 2023! For now, Limited Access users will still need to have their profiles created in Elvanto and access Elvanto directly.
If you have any of the following questions, please check out our article resource below.
  • How do I set up Tithely Elvanto Single Sign On?
  • Who can utilize the Tithely to Elvanto SSO?
  • When does a profile get added to Elvanto and upgraded to a Super Admin in Elvanto?
  • What about existing Tithely Admins, are they now super admins in Elvanto?
  • What happens when I remove an Admin or Account Owner in Tithely?
  • What happens when I remove an Admin or Account Owner in Tithely AND delete their people profile from Tithely?

ChMS ELVANTO | NEW Group Finder and Groups Area Enhancements!
new
improved
fixed
Elvanto
Hello Elvanto users!
I am pumped to announce several improvements our team has made to the Group Finder and the Admin Area for Groups!
First I'll start with the smaller tweaks below:
Language Updates
  • Bug Fix
    - We had a bug that was causing an extra " 's group" to be after the group name (ex. "Bethany's Small Group's group"). Now all names displayed for the groups in the Group Finder should reflect what was set in the name field for the group in the Admin area.
  • New “Meets Online” Label
    - Prior to this update, the list view of groups in the Group Finder would either say “No meeting information provided” or “Meets in city” based on the city specified in the address. Now if you enter a Digitial Meeting link on the Edit tab of the group in the Admin area, the group will be labeled as one that “Meets online.”
Screen Shot 2022-08-26 at 10
Now on to the bigger stuff!
New Map Setting
- The map now can be hidden by default with a new Group Finder Setting! This also applied to any Group Finder that is embedded, and you can find this setting under your global Group Finder settings.
Screen Shot 2022-08-26 at 10
New Group Capacity Settings
- You can now set a capacity that will automatically prevent people from continuing to request to join. Once the capacity is met, the group will still display in the Group Finder as an active group, but the “Request to Join” button will be replaced with “Group at Capacity.”
Screen Shot 2022-08-26 at 10
New Automatic Emails/SMS Settings and Templates
  • Group Finder Request Response
    - Under your Built-in Contact Templates, you’ll now find a new email/SMS template that shows what will automatically be sent to those who request to join a group as a confirmation of their request. You can enable these automatic followups under your global Group Finder settings.
Screen Shot 2022-08-26 at 10
  • Automatic Reminders to Attend Group
    - Before this update, you could only automatically remind leaders to submit attendance, but now you have the option to remind your attendees to come via email/SMS! The templates can be found under your Built-in Contact Templates as “Group Reminder to Attend”, and the setting can be found under your global Group settings. This will only be applied to groups that have been enabled to show in the Member area.
Screen Shot 2022-08-26 at 10
New Pending Request Tab in the Groups Admin Area
- Before this update, the requests to join a group lived solely with the designated Group Leader in their email/notifications. Now any person who has the access permission to add people to groups can see who has requested to join, respond to those requests, and even notify the person who requested to join about the decision via email.
Screen Shot 2022-08-26 at 10
I hope all these enhancements really improve your experience of the Group Finder! As always, if you have any questions or issues, do not hesitate to reach out to our support team at support@tithe.ly.
We are here to help in any way we can!

Messaging
We're excited to announce that there is now an email option included with Follow Ups!
With our latest release, you can choose whether to send automated Follow Ups via text or email. Before, text was the only option offered.
When choosing the email option, you can create the follow-up using a simple email or drag & drop email. This allows greater flexibility and customization for churches as you create the drip sequences for your Follow Ups.
