NOW AVAILABLE: Turn on or turn off features that display in the Mobile App & Online Members’ Website.

Don’t use staff, activities or groups in your printed PDF and don’t want to display them online or in the mobile apps? It’s not a problem to turn these features off.

You can make these updates to your directory by going to Step 6 – Share Member Apps.

Church Directory Share Member Apps

Simply UN-check the sections you do not want to show. Your updates are saved automatically and these features will no longer appear in the mobile apps or in the online directory. The default setting is to show ALL.

Church Directory Dashboard

Keep in mind, your members will need the latest update to their mobile apps for this feature to apply.

Keep your eyes peeled for more updates to the directory apps in both the Apple Store and Google Play Store.
