Integration, integration, integration
Must integrate Tithely and ChMS! People, Groups, messaging, events etc must be fully integrated as top priority!!!! All churches are supported by volunteers who do not have time to administer multiple databases. API imports from ChMS to Tithely is a start but we really need full integration! Any interaction with the system must update the whole system. If a visitor fills out a form, if a member updates their profile, if a group leader posts to their members, if a pastor posts to the church all should be in one fully integrated database. I appreciate that the integration is happening step by step but again full integration is far and away a higher priority then any other new feature!
registration tickets remaining - an option to turn off
Now that you've added so that people can see how many tickets are remaining when registering, it would be good to have this as an option to turn off also.
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
In-app messages with push notifications
I'm currently using SMS to send communications to some people and email to send notifications to others. I like SMS because of it's speed and accessibility, but email is more flexible and less costly. I'd love to have the option to implement some sort of in-app messaging with push notifications. It would mean I can freely send communications to the phone of a user; they will receive a notification and simply need to open the app to view and respond to it. It would need to have the option of two-way communication to be fully functional, but even one-way only would be a great start. You could argue that emails essentially do this, but email notifications are often muted or lost in the flurry of emails, whereas an app notification would be much harder to miss.
It would be great to be able to link registrations to services rather than an event during this time with restrictions.Then at check in, names are already listed. Plus church admin could 'register' Visitor 1, 2 etc to allow for visitors on the day. It would need to show how many places remaining before registration.
Allocated Seating Function
COVID restrictions are not likely to go away for some time. Currently, Churches are permitted to have full capacity seating if they have an allocated seating booking system that can identify who sits where - a bit like aeroplane allocated seating. I currently use an allocated seating booking tool called "Try Booking" for this purpose. This tool allows me to map out our own Church auditorium seating plan, apply seating rows and seat numbers and then create a Worship Service even, I then send the link to members - the members go online to book in for themselves and family members; I print the list for sign-in on the day - this also produces a QR code to register attendance on the day via their mobile phones, or I can scan their ticket QR code. I also print out the seating plan showing all booked and vacant seats, on the morning prior to the Service and anyone who turns up anannounced gets allocated an available seat. This product is powerful but very user friendly. I didn't need any training to use it. It gives me a report on who attended, etc - probably worth while looking into to add this feature - check out "Try Booking". Thanks, Wendy
We run quarterly statements and we need the memo line. I've been told that those can be run through ChMS but that the Memo line won't print from the ChMS side, only under Reports from Tithely side. We need memo lines with designations as well as quarterly statements. Can this be a possibility???
Request for Badges, Banners for Elvanto App
Hi, When volunteers are scheduled they are not aware that a notification is sent to their phones. Similar to how Facebook, WhatsApp and almost every other decent app has notifications on the home screen to indicate a new message, Elvanto needs to have this feature. Volunteers will not miss any scheduled requests and cause less frustrations amongst our department heads. Please see attached file. PS. We have just started using the app for volunteer scheduling and I think what you have is brilliant. Blessings! Lennon Naidoo
Assign group events to group calendar, not custom calendar
When I create an event in a group, it would be nice if the event would be assigned to the automatic group calendar and not a custom calendar. The reason is, when I embed our calendars in our homepage, I (of course) do not choose the group calendar but some custom calendars. But if the events are not assigned to the group calendar but to the custom calenders they are displayed on our homepage, which doesn't make sense. It would make sense if those events would be in the group calendar as well as the regular meeting events, that can be configured in the group editor. At least there should be the option to CHOOSE the group calender as an option.
Add Conditional rules to forms & registration
Would love if I could display/hide certain fields, based on certain rules or conditions. This would be very helpful for event registrations. It would also be nice if the price of a 'ticket' can be changed based on the conditions/options that someone selects in a form.
