Photo Directories

Directory Sample

Use eAdventist to print the photo directory pages for your church directory. All you need to do is upload the photos for each family, fill in the captions, and print! Here is how:

Upload Family Photos

Add Photo

On the Family Unit section of the Person page you can:

  1. Preview the family photo if one exists.
  2. Add, change or delete a family photo.
  3. View the photo caption. Click “Edit this person” to edit the photo caption.

Photo Directory Report

Reports Menu

Photo Directory PAge

To open the Photo Directory report:

  1. Click the Photo Directory link on the Reports menu.
  2. Select the desired organization to print. For most users you will only see your church in the list.
  3. Select the starting page number for the report. The photos will generally just be one section somewhere in the middle of your directory.
  4. Click View Report to download the PDF report.

Printing Your Directory

The photo directory feature is designed to work along with the existing Church Directory report, which prints just the names, address and phone number of each family. We suggest using Adobe Acrobat to make any last minute edits to the PDF as well as insert blank pages for proper printing. You can then use Adobe Acrobat or the free Adobe Reader to print in “booklet” format so the pages come out in the proper order to be saddle stitched.

As always, don’t hesitate to contact if you have further questions.

Church Directory now available in “vanilla”

eAdventist had a “Church Directory” report that provided the roster information “by family” — as exported data only. We didn’t include a printed PDF report since most churches want a layout that reflects their unique style and needs rather than a “vanilla” layout.

We have just added a “by person” option and included “vanilla” printed PDF reports for both options. If you like “vanilla”, your work is almost done. If you prefer more exotic flavors, use the “vanilla” layout for proofing. You can still mix your own flavor for publishing using the exported data and layout tool of your choice (e.g. Word, Excel, InDesign, Publisher).
