Master Updating and Managing Group Leaders

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.

Speaking of technical gaps, the technical gap we’ll focus on bridging today is updating and managing group leaders using the manage_group_leaders CCB API service. Read This Tutorial

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! Read This Tutorial

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. Read This Tutorial

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.Read This Tutorial

How to display Group Areas, Meeting Days, and Meeting Times values

Welcome back to another CCB Tutorial. Today’s tutorial aims to build upon a few different ideas from past tutorials.

Like most churches that use CCB as their Church Management Software provider (ChMS), your church likely has a great need for managing the growth and communications of small groups.

It’s also likely that your church may refer to “small groups” as home groups, life groups, community groups or a branded phrase of your choosing.

Nevertheless, all churches using CCB will likely encounter the challenge of choosing to implement CCB’s out-of-the-box groups display functionality or create a custom groups display that matches your church’s website look and feel. Read This Tutorial
