Appearance

To add your church logo, drag and drop the file into the logo area or click Browse. This file must be either a PNG or JPEG file with a size no larger than 5 megabytes.

For the best display, we recommend …

  • A PNG file with a transparent background to make sure your logo adapts to any color changes or shades. (JPEG files do not allow for transparent backgrounds)
  • Maximum image width of 480 pixels

Select the 'Use Uploaded Logo In Header' checkbox for your logo to display on the login screen and in the top left of your screen after logging in.

To customize the header color, use the slider toggle to enable 'Custom Header Color'. Click inside the white box to activate the color prism to select a custom color. If you know the exact hexadecimal color code of the color you desire, you can type it in the space provided.

To revert to the original color, click REVERT. Click SAVE at the bottom to finalize your changes. If needed, a great site to convert RGB to hexadecimal is http://color.adobe.com.

Church Information

Add the church name, address, and other default settings that apply to many areas of the database. This information can be used for things like reports and giving statements.

Of particular consideration are the Time settings when it comes to the 'Giving Week Start Day' and the 'Default Timezone'.

  • Giving Week Start Day → An adjustment here changes the first day of the week for these different areas (Note the Dashboard widgets allow for their own start date to be set).
    • Labeling: The week should be labeled with the Sunday date, wherever Sunday falls related to the Week Start Day.
    • Monthly Counts: For a week that is between two months, show it with the month where Sunday falls.
    • Weekly Reports: The Giving Overview charts and Glance "Weekly Attendance" charts count all attendance or giving within the same week. Attending 5 times in the same week shows as attendance for one week in on a chart. “The same week” depends on the week start day.
  • Default Timezone → Determines time settings for reporting, scheduled times to send a contact, system log details, etc.

Click SAVE at the bottom to finalize your changes.

Campuses

Setting up campuses allows for splitting calendars, donation tracking, and member filtering. The following video is an overview of how easy it is to set up and enable for your organization.
