Composing an Email Message


When creating an email message, you'll use the text editor to create the body of your message. You will be able to type or paste a message into the text editor.

This content box houses features very similar to an email client so you can compose the message directly within the Church360° software.

These features are denoted by buttons found at the top of the text editor.

The first group of buttons has actions you can use for specific text in your message.

  • Text buttons - The first three buttons (Bold, Italic, Strikethrough) pertain to the formatting of your text. Simply select your text and click the button for your chosen task to apply the action.
  • Link - When clicking the chain-link button, enter the URL for the link you desire into the pop-up that appears and click "Link" to add it. Your link will show as orange in your message. To remove the link, highlight the linked text, click the chain-link button, and click "Unlink".

The second grouping of buttons affects entire text lines.

  • Heading - Click this toggle button to change the entire text line into a heading format. 
  • Quote - This button will indent a text line with a bar denoting a quote. This can be helpful for scripture readings or direct quotations from the church pastor or president.
  • Bullets - This action applies bullets starting with the current text line. Bullet points are best for listing things that have no set order
  • Numbers - This action applies number bullets starting with the current text line. Numbering bullets are best for listing things with a set, or preferred, order.
  • Indenting buttons - The next two buttons (Decrease Level, Increase Level) are greyed out and are only available when currently on a line with either the Bullets or Numbers action being applied.

The final grouping of buttons is located on the far right of the text editor.

  • Undo - This will remove the last action or revision to your message.
  • Redo - This will reapply an action that had been undone.
