March 8, 2022: A new “Include in myEADVENTIST” option provides separate settings for the online directory (myEADVENTIST) and the printed directory (Church Directory).
The People section of the myEADVENTIST app provides church members with a digital church directory, so it’s important that it provides privacy options that you can apply if a member chooses not to have some of their information included in the directory. These same privacy options also apply to eAdventist’s Church Directory features for creating a printed directory.
The simplest and most commonly-used option is the “Include in myEADVENTIST” checkbox (see #5 below), which applies to all of the people in the Family. It determines whether they are included in both the online directory (myEADVENTIST app). The “Include in Church Directory” option applies only to the printed directory (Church Directory in eAdventist).
The family’s shared address and phone can also be omitted from the Church Directory using the “Confidential” and “Unlisted” checkboxes (see #3 and #4 above). This will also prevent these fields from being included in any Officer lists. The “Confidential” setting is primarily intended for situations where the member’s address needs to be protected for safety reasons.
Each person’s email and mobile phone can be kept out of the Church Directory using the “Unlisted?” checkboxes (see #1 and #2 below). This will also prevent these fields from being included in any Officer lists.
