On February 28, we released several enhancements to Engage that make it easier than ever for members to give, update contact information, and register for events. Here is more information about what's new.
Engage now supports Text Giving, a new service available for CDM+. With Text Giving, making a gift to your church or organization is as easy as texting Give from your smartphone. Contact CDM+ Sales to find out how you can get started with Text Giving.
Update Contact Information
Now your Engage users can manage their contact information from their Engage account, right on their smart phone, tablet or computer. This feature will make it easier to keep current contact information in your database with less data entry and administration time.
The ability for Engage users to make changes to their contact information has to be enabled in the Engage Administration section of Web Ministry Tools. At your discretion, staff members can receive notification of changes and one or more email addresses can be set to receive those notifications.
Using their computer or mobile device to log into Engage, members can register themselves for events. Engage Registration will pre-fill the registration form with information from their individual record. Engage users can use their phone to register themselves, and they can also register others, easily and conveniently from their mobile device.
A new setting in the Single Event Registration Tool determines whether an event is published to Engage for registration.
Enhancements to Engage Giving
The Giving menu in Engage has been reworked, making it easier for online donors to manage their giving. From Engage Giving, donors can review their scheduled gifts and see their most recent online gifts. The Give Again button makes it easy for them to sustain their generosity.
At the same time new tools are available to Engage users, system administrators have enhanced capabilities to manage these functions. Administrators have the ability to choose whether members can update their own contact information, to receive notification regarding what changes have been made, and which events are available for Engage Registration.
