Accessing and Displaying Group Profiles By ID

In today’s tutorial, I’m sharing with you how to access and display group profiles by id.

Not to be confused with the group_profiles API service — which allows you to pass in a given date and have all groups created or modified since that date returned to you, today’s tutorial will access group_profiles_from_id API service.

So instead of focusing on returning ALL group profiles, we’ll focus on accessing and displaying a specific group by its group id (as shown below).

 

That stated, let’s get started with today’s tutorial.  Continue reading Accessing and Displaying Group Profiles By ID

What’s the average number of groups persons belongs to?

If your church is loving, living, and leading from Christ-centered community, then this very question has crossed your mind at some point, if not at the forefront of your mind in this current season of ministry.

How to Create a CCB Group

Of course, what a response received from last week’s tutorial in regards to displaying CCB groups on your website using CCB’s API.

I had a feeling there were quite a few of your churches wanting to implement such functionality. And if you hadn’t been currently pondering it, you had at some point wished for customization of the native CCB group search functionality.

In this week’s tutorial, I’ll share with you how to go about creating groups. Of course, most of everyone using CCB likely already has groups created.

If you’re new to CCB and migrating from another church management software solution, then you’re likely hoping and strongly desiring a way to avoid the manual labor of entering groups into CCB.

In fact, it’s quite easy to use the CCB API to create new groups. Ready to begin? Let’s get started. Continue reading How to Create a CCB Group
