The events view in Church360°® Members is a basic calendar in which events can be created, managed, and organized similar to an Outlook calendar. Like in Outlook, events can be repeated, locations can be assigned, and notes can be added. However, in Church360° Members, events are also used to keep track of attendance, Communion, and offerings for record keeping, and a list of regular attendees can be added.
Note: Attendance cannot be entered unless an event has the “Attendance taken” checkbox marked. Similarly, offerings can only be linked to an event for which the “Offering taken” checkbox is marked. This is important for reports.
The main events view is a simple calendar that displays events that are selected in the “Calendars” drop-down in the upper right corner. Clicking the drop-down will display all the calendars that are active on your account. You can select and deselect calendars to find the ones you want to view. Next to the “Calendar” drop-down are toggle buttons to change the view to monthly or weekly. Above this are options to print, download, and save the view as a report. You can change the month or week you are viewing by using the arrows under “Events” in the top left corner; clicking the dot in between the arrows brings you back to the current month or week.
Managing events is easy in this view. To create an event, you can either click “New” in the upper left corner or click on the day you want the event to be on. A window will appear with additional fields that need to be filled in. Hovering over an event with the cursor will display a brief summary. Clicking on an event will take you to the edit view, where you can edit or delete the event.
