How to Retrieve Data Using CCB API and REST Client

I’m back with another tutorial for your today.

Unlike previous CCBTutorials.com tutorials, today’s video tutorial doesn’t use Javascript, PHP or databases of any sort.

In fact, today’s tutorial is in a NEW and different format. That’s right! I’m changing up things a bit with today’s tutorial by introducing video tutorials.

I’ve received a few emails here and there since starting CCBTutorials.com, asking if I would ever consider video tutorials of how to use CCB’s API.

Well, the day has come, and the first video tutorial out of the chute is how to retrieve data using CCB’s API and a REST client. Continue reading How to Retrieve Data Using CCB API and REST Client

Welcome back to this week’s tutorial. My hope for you is that these tutorials have saved you and your church time while increasing operational productivity beyond measure.

Although it’s a labor of love, I truly enjoy helping churches bridge their technical gaps.

How to Update a CCB Group

We’re back with another tutorial this week. Last week, you learned how to create a group using the CCB API service create_group.

And although I had another tutorial due to post this week, I had a few questions raised about the CCB API service to update a group’s data.

So in this week’s tutorial, I’ll share with you how to update a group using CCB’s API service. Let’s get started! Continue reading How to Update a CCB Group

A Simple Custom Group Search Display Using CCB’s API

Welcome back to this week’s CCB API tutorial.

Picking up from where we ended last week’s tutorial, today’s tutorial works to extend last week’s tutorial that displayed Group Areas, Meeting Days and Meeting Times Values as drop down menus.

Specifically, I’m sharing with you today how to create your very own custom group search display for your church website.

Of course, you can always fall back to CCB’s native group search functionality. However, there is a substantial loss in the ability to customize.

Nevertheless, that’s the very reason I’m sharing today’s tutorial. By the end of this tutorial, you’ll have an interactive group search that displays groups on your website.

And the bonus is that you’ll be able to apply your own CSS styling that matches your website, although custom styling is not covered in this tutorial.

Well, we don’t have time to waste, so let’s get started. Continue reading A Simple Custom Group Search Display Using CCB’s API
