When a group includes children or youth (who may not have an e-mail address to use), the younger group members do not receive the message. This creates a communication challenge for children's group leaders. Is it possible to have a group News/Event e-mail message sent to the parent's e-mail address, similar to how a staff e-mail to a child will auto-send to the parents? idea 61201 61201 pending 16 21 30 comment 7866190 Would like to have a back button in the Realm Accounting program itself. 2019-03-19T21:26:02Z 2019-03-19T21:26:02Z Willa willa_14iy7ma4005ud idea 0 1 1 create 7774357 Realm Check In Screens 2019-03-19T21:12:04Z 2018-08-06T18:58:43Z Linda Hayes linda_hayes_7790386 Why does the&nbsp;on&nbsp;screen&nbsp;Keyboard not show on kiosk screen for all&nbsp; levels of check in, Check In Only as well as Check In and Sign Up?&nbsp; If going the extent to have a kiosk screen, you have to bring up the keyboard for check in and sign up.&nbsp; Not ideal for scrolling when adding a guest.&nbsp; This needs to be changed! idea pending 2 3 2 comment 7782161 Notifications for Updates to Connect App 2019-03-19T20:32:29Z 2018-08-23T14:19:37Z Tom Williams tom_williams_4u7a0w66whrtj I have spent an hour on hold just to be told you must remove and reinstall the IOS Connect app to get it working.

There are staff members that need to be able to see fund/distribution and accounting report totals; however, they do not need to see individual giving. Individual giving is often private and not everyone needs to see specifics. I would venture to say that many pastors want to see overall totals and account balances and even dashboards showing giving by week, but not see individual giving. I know that our pastor would prefer not to have this access, but wants the other information. Our financial board would benefit also from reporting without individual giving accounts. Individual giving privacy is of utmost importance and so is having financial oversight and integrity. <br /><br /> Please consider this in the development of access levels.<br /><br /> Thank you. idea 52611 52611 active 55 61 100 comment 7866163 Send email "on behalf" of someone and change the "From:" address in an email. 2019-03-19T19:57:38Z 2019-03-19T19:57:38Z Dave Bower dave_bower_echqo1gvurv3y We're new Realm users (2 weeks) so sorry if that is available or already requested. I did search and could not find the answer.<br /><br />We would like to do our church emailings from Realm which are usually sent from one of the pastors but sent by one of the office staff. But we need the from address to be from the pastor, not the person posting it from Realm.&nbsp; Sometimes it is a personal message from the pastor, and other time we're afraid if it is sent from an unrecognized email address people will consider it spam.<br /><br /> Thank you,<br /> Dave idea 0 2 4 create 7651367 Features to Improve Check-In 2019-03-19T19:55:14Z 2017-12-19T21:32:25Z Ryan ryan_hxzmjpoie35s3 I am a children's pastor at cfa Church and after setting up all the groups, events and check in kiosks we came away with some suggestions from the process:<br /><br /> 1. It would be nice to have the ability to set the order of events as they show up in the check in mode, after clicking 'Add to Event.' We would like to arrange the order of the groups from youngest to oldest so it's easy for parents checking in to realize the pattern and find their child's group quicker.<br /><br /> 2. From the check in screen, after clicking 'Add to Event' the Event tilte is the header in bigger, bolder font with the group name as the sub-header in small gray font. This would be nice to flip flop. Put the group name as the header and event time as the sub-header. Reason being, we have multiple events using the same event time, and parents look for their child's group, not necessarily the event time/title. I can work around this by going to each of our 100 groups and changing their event title to their group name, but this is very tedious.<br /><br /> 3. A feature for filter the roster from the Dashboard screen would be helpful, I understand you can order it by group or location, but as a kids ministry, we only need a roster of kids checked in, not everyone using a check in kiosk at that time.<br /><br /> 4. Another feature that would be helpful is updating a guardian's phone number at check in. I see that we can update name and allergies, but a parent is most likely to update their phone number when they see it incorrect on a check in screen and not go back later in the week to update it on their Realm profile. Since the phone number is a vital way to contact them during service, it's helpful to have a way to update it then and there vs. later in the week from.<br /><br /> 5. I kept running into a problem in which I couldn't edit the groups of an event time after I created it. I would have to delete the whole event time just to add or drop a group with the same event time. It would be great to have a feature of editing the groups with the assigned event time from the event time window.<br /><br /> 6. In creating our 100 groups and our soon coming multiple pathways, it would be beneficial if there was a duplicate option. Duplicate a group or Duplicate a pathway. Many of our groups and pathways share common features and it would be faster to duplicate, then edit one or two features then to go create a new group/pathway and re-type the same info in most of the catergories.<br /><br /> 7. When setting up the groups for a check-in kiosk there is no way to individually select a name badge template for a group if I selected to add a whole sub-ministry area. So I would have to created a mixed group of 4 out of the 5 groups just because one of them didn't need a name badge and the other did. It would be great to have a feature to import a whole sub-ministry area into a check-in kiosk and still be able to select the name badge template for each group. Right now that feature is only available if you import groups individually which takes more time.<br /><br /> 8. I noticed after creating a new group or event, I would always have to go back and click on 'ministry areas', then drop down and select my area, then select the sub-ministry area drop down and then select the next group I wanted to edit just to get back to the place I was before I edited or created a group/event. It would be nice if after creating a new group or event and clicking 'Save' the window brought me back to the window I was on before I created the new one. I.E.- when I shop on Amazon, I click on a product and when I go back it takes me to the same page number and spot in the list I was at instead of taking me all the way back to page 1 and having to catch back up to where I was.<br /><br /> Sorry for all this info but I hope it can help in improving this great product. I have worked with KidCheck, The City and now Realm so I am familiar with different types of check in systems. As of now, Realm has all the features but there is a lot of leg work in setting it up and it's missing features that can save time in set up and make it appear less confusing to parents. <br /><br /> Please call me and I would be happy to walk you through the following suggestions and I'm sure we'll have more as we continue to test and use Realm.<br /><br /> Ryan Florke<br /> cfa Church<br /> Associate Children's Pastor<br /> <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a><br /> 704-425-5342 idea 93855_check_in 93855_check_in, 81307_copy_group, 93856_for_item_8 pending 3 5 8 comment 7866161 Inquiry 2019-03-19T19:53:16Z 2019-03-19T19:53:16Z Willa willa_14iy7ma4005ud Would like to be able to search by vendor in the Inquiry Tab idea 0 1 1 create 7832139 1099 Vendors 2019-03-19T19:24:54Z 2018-12-20T21:12:56Z Diane Rabold diane_rabold In ACS, I simply coded the vendor as 1099, and it would print a 1099 for any who earned over $600. Now I am forced to remember which vendors are 1099 and then code the associated GL accounts, which seems like backwards logic to me. The vendor needs a 1099, not the GL account!

We find that it only shows the primary phone, which is often the home number. Of course, a majority of people are not home during the day when folks need to get in touch with them, plus they can't send texts to a home phone. Our first request is that the app show both the home and mobile numbers. That would be the most helpful thing. Our second request is to be able to mass change the primary phone to be the mobile number so that it can always be seen. Our elders, as well as others, have especially asked for the mobile numbers to show up. Thank you for your consideration of these requests.<br /> Joyce Livingston idea 81850 81850, 89873 pending 20 27 46 comment 7057930 Family Notes 2019-03-19T19:21:21Z 2016-07-21T14:21:30Z Michael Harris michael_harris_7758739 It would be great to have a Family notes section not just individual.&nbsp; There are times when I want to make notes that would be for the whole family unit, but right now I've got to go to each person's profile and make duplicate notes, so that I cover them all.&nbsp; This was a great feature of ACS People, and would love to see it make its way here.&nbsp; <br /><br />Thanks,<br />Michael idea 75387 75387 active 31 28 45 comment
