Spring cleaning with CCB’s individual inactivate API service

Welcome back to this week’s tutorial.

Of course, it’s spring (no matter how short lived) here in Texas with summer to fast arrive.

Like most when spring arrives, we do a bit of spring cleaning around the house, ridding ourselves of things that once were the apple of our eye, yet we longer use.

In fact, we have a rule in our house that if we’ve not used it in 9 months, then it must go!

And as spring cleaning goes in our personal lives, we must also take a moment to do a bit of church digital cleaning to ensure that our church’s data remains updated and in tip-top shape.

Today’s tutorial focuses on helping you and your church quickly mark abandoned profiles/accounts, attendees, and members as inactive using the CCB API.Read This Tutorial

How to retrieve group needs and items list

It’s been one of those weeks.  Many personal and professional obligations to obliged, and only so much time to complete them all with and at a level of excellence to admire.

Today’s tutorial will focus on the Church Community Builder’s group needs.  Group needs are tasks associated with a group.

Needs could be anything from prayer requests, finances, meals and more.

Needs are a unique way to keep group members involved and engaged while helping keep group leaders and members organized.Read This Tutorial

Displaying a list of last run save searches

Today’s tutorial is a bit light since we’ve spent the last month or so doing a bit of heavy lifting completing the spiritual gifts assessment questionnaire.

Have you ever wanted to see when a saved search or report was last run? Or maybe you’re wanting another program to execute a CCB saved search.

I’ll show you how to create a list of saved searches, display the name, id and last run date, and use the CCB API service to do so.

Let’s jump in and get started.Read This Tutorial

Creating a custom spiritual gifts assessment questionnaire – PART IV

Hey there! We’re back, and the week has somehow gotten away from me. That’s good and bad, but mostly good.

Today’s tutorial will pick up from where we last left off. This has been a pretty intense or involved series. I appreciate you sticking around and I hope this tutorial series helps you and your church.

As a quick recap, review and follow along with the previous tutorials if you’re just dropping in on us:

As I stated last week, today’s tutorial covers charting a person’s custom spiritual gifts assessment questionnaire results via a column chart(see below).

It may not be the most visually appealing chart, but the charting software does allow decent chart results printing and downloading in various formats (i.e., pdf, jpeg, png, and svg).
