Send "Reports To" notifications to the user who scheduled a volunteer on, when no other Reports To person exists.
If a volunteer declines a request there is a notification sent to either the "reports to" person on his profile or on this specific position. This means that all this "reports to" people must be configured. In a big church with many volunteers, this is a huge admin overhead. My experience is that most of the time the person who does the scheduling wants to be notified. So this should be default behaviour without doing any configuration at all. I roster someone, I get notified if he/she declines. For exceptions you can still add a "reports to" person...
Dark mode setting for webapp
It would be great to add a dark mode (or similar setting) on the webapp. I currently use dark mode on macOS Mojave and the blinding white of the new website branding is a disturbingly painful contrast to the rest of the OS and apps.
Reports / Mass Manage: add Sharing
The only action available now in Reports / Mass Manage is to delete a group of reports. It would be very useful when people's responsibilities change to be able to mass manage sharing of reports, too.
Categories for Email/Letter Templates
Hi Team Is it possible to create Sub folders or catergories within the Email/Letter tab? Regards Belinda
Attach a file to an event
It would be great to be able to attach files to a group event. Whilst it is possible to do this when contacting people having the file in the event would mean that if a file needs to be updated all invitees would be have access to the latest version without the need to contact them each time - which is doable but less productive.
Unique Attendance Stats for Services
I'd like to be able to see total individuals who attended our church services on a Sunday. We've recently started two services on a Sunday - and when we generate a Service Reporting (Statistics) line graph report, it either looks very 'hilly' (up and down if we run it for 'Each Service')... or our attendance number have skyrocketed (if we run it for 'Weekly') because it's double counting people who come to both services. We'd like to get a reading on total unique individuals attending any of our weekend services. This is the key metric for us (especially as we consider the impact of two different style services) ... ie do we actually have more people coming on a Sunday? In my dashboard I'm able to generate a report that shows 'unique attendance' for the past week (screenshot here) - but I can't find that functionality anywhere in Reports.
Add Individuals as Guests in Group Attendance Reports
When adding guests in a group attendance report, they are currently just a number. But it would be really helpful to us if we were able to add their name, so that their attendance is logged in their profile's activity. (much like the functionality available in mass adding individuals in service attendance reporting) We watch our group statistics and reporting closely... but we are often getting inaccurate numbers out of Elvanto. If someone tries out a different group to the one they were originally allocated in, they often attend several groups without that activity being logged. Then, if you generate a report of people who have or haven't attended a group in the last 3 months... the names and numbers are inaccurate. Also, we recently had an archived person return to church through one of our groups. The group leader just adds them as a guest, and there is no pathway in, to be reactivated simply from the group report. I'd also like to give group leaders the ability to direct people from the attendance report (like adding them to a people flow, or filling in a new person form, or volunteering form etc.) -- but any links I add into the custom text are not clickable. [maybe this is a different feature request altogether] That way, as soon as the meeting is finished, the group leader(s) can action whatever discipleship moments happened in the meeting.
Add additional "position" placeholder in built-in contact templates "Services & Volunteers"
In the built-in contact templates for "Services & Volunteers" there is a placeholder called %position%. A position is always part of a team and department - there is always 3 levels. E.g. Worship Team --> Instruments --> Bass. Today, if someone declines or accepts I only see the position but not the team and department in the notification email. But sometimes this is necessary, e.g. if I have the same position in different teams or departments. To distinguish the positions, I would love to see all 3 levels in the notification email. Therefore, I suggest to add an additional placeholder for the department and team. In the email I would love to have something like this: %volunteer_name% has declined the request to be scheduled on as %department_breakdown% --> %position% on %service_date% at %service_time%.
