All of the these new features came about because of your suggestions from churches including: The Springs (AZ), Grace Community Church (CA), Immanuel Baptist (FL), and Eden Gemeente (Africa). When you, as the SimpleChurch community, make suggestions, we take them seriously - You help to make SimpleChurch better for everyone! If you have an idea or a criticism, we'd love to hear it.

New Mobile Site

With broader device support, more features, and filterable lists for members and groups, you'll be sure to get more accomplished while on the go with our newly designed mobile site. Add it to your device's home screen for faster access and full screen viewing.

Self Check-In

You can allow members with GPS-equipped smart phones to let you know they're at church by checking in from their device. If they aren't at church, members can submit a reason why they coudn't make it. Self Check-in increases member buy-in and accountability and can help you stay more in tune with your congregation. The checkin app can be added to a phone's home screen for fast access.

Reminders

Daily Interactions Digest: Now, we'll send you reminders when you have interactions assigned to you. You can choose to receive them daily, weekly, or never. By default, if you've logged in, you'll get the reminder daily. If a member has never logged in, he/she will receive a weekly reminder.

Groups

Now filterable: Many churches have a very long list of groups; now, when you go to edit a person, you can filter that long list by using the search field at the top of the pane.

Families

Update all at once: Instead of editing each member in a family, you can now update them all at once when you edit the primary member. Look for this option at the bottom of the edit form.
