Search services options
The possibility to search through service content, not just the title as it is the case today. For example find all the services of a series or find a Bible that was used in a service description or a note. It would be so useful to use elvanto as the memory of past services and to have an easy way to search through this database.
color code items in service plan
It would be a real help if we could change the coloring of items in the service plan. With having multiple items in the service plan, it would be helpful to have different things stand out.
Organisation of Service Types (Templates?) and restricted access to them
At the moment someone with "Service Edit" permissions can edit services of all service types. A church with different age groups, events, conferences etc. has dozens of service types. Would be great to be able to organise service types in folders. And restrict Service Edit permissions to certain folders/service types.
Add files that are attached to specific people
Here in Pennsylvania, all child workers must have certain state clearances. It would be great if I could upload pdf's of those clearances to a person's profile, so that when they log in to Elvanto, they can view and download those clearances. The same would be true for committee minutes. I could upload minutes to a person's profile. That way, when a person leaves a committee, they could retain the minutes for the time they were a part of the committee, but they would not receive new minutes. As such, this would be a better method than, say, attaching minutes (pdfs) to a Group.
cc parent's email in youth comms
Hi, We have had a parent ask to be cc'd in all emails sent to their children until they are 18. This feature would allow scheduling emails sent to children/youth serving to have the option to cc a parent/guardian so they also are in the same email chain. (same function found in regular gmail emailing). It would not be the same as just adding a parent's email address as the contact email for the child or adding them as an extra volunteer on the same day just so they both receive the scheduling email. Perhaps the option to add multiple emails for the one person/account can solve this problem? Hope that makes sense, Thanks
Better Email Customizations
It would be awesome if features similar to Mail Chimp could be integrated into the emailing capability of Elvanto.
Secondary Email Address
In our church some people have an oggicial "internal" mail address that they use when they are writing/receiving mails in their special role within the church. We need to set these addresses as secondary mail addresses in the person dataset, so that every other church member can choose to contact this person either via his/her private mail address or via the secondary/official mail address. I know that I can set up a custom field for this, but I think there is no way to use this field dirextly as an email addressee. A custom field type "email" would be nice that automatically has the funtion to send an email to.
Sermon Series Planner
As the preaching pastor, I would love to be able to plan out a whole series with individual sermon titles, dates they relate to, and a short brief. These can then be applied to the service planning.
Provide a Print Nametags option for event guest lists
There currently isn't an easy option to print a set of nametags for all guests who have registered to attend an event and/or accepted and event invitation. In other areas of elvanto, the 'export' option provides a 'Print name tags' option. This would be very helpful in the context of event guests too.
