The new “Involvement” field has been added to help pastors and their churches serve the various groups within their members better. Typical categories that many churches use include:
- Moved away
The pastor or clerk of each church can choose the categories that will best suit their needs, in the new Church Admin section of eAdventist.
Once the categories have been created, you can set the “Involvement” for each person (members and nonmembers).
The Member List layout has been updated to include the “Involvement”, both family and mobile (personal) phones, as well as email address.
Each church chooses their own “Involvement” categories. When a member transfers, their new church will not see the “Involvement” entered by their previous church. The new church can replace it with one of their own “Involvement” categories.
If you have been using Tags to track involvement, we’ll be happy to migrate them to Involvement for you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the near future, you will also be able to use “Involvement” in labels, directories, maps and messaging lists. Let us know which features you would particularly find it useful in.
