Note: This tutorial assumes you have already logged in to your church's SteepleConnect website and have administrator rights to your church. If this is not the case, you must first create an account
and then email SteepleConnect support
requesting administrator permissions. (You must be able to provide valid proof that you are allowed to be an administrator for your church.)
Ok, so you've been made the admin of a church.. now what?
The first thing you should notice is that when you go to the church website there is a small "gear" at the top of the page.
When you click on the gear, you'll be brought to an admin section where you can make changes to the website, including updating the church's basic info, modifying the appearance, adding and updating service times, etc.
You can also add events to the calendar
And do much more. Feel free to explore and make changes.
At any time, to get back to viewing the site, just click on the eye (where the gear previously was), and you'll be back where you started.
You may notice that "Connect with this Church" shows up at the top. This message will be displayed to anybody who visits your website when they are logged in. Clicking on it will send a request to become "connected" with the church's website, where they'll be able to have access to the church's online directory (of which they will now be a part), prayer wall, and other members only pages.
As an admin, you can approve (or not approve) these types of requests (including your own), by clicking on the gear and going to the "People" tab.
From there, you should see any pending requests with a red line next to them.
As you hover over the person's name, you'll have the option to approve that person, update their contact information, or delete their connection.
That's it for this tutorial, be sure to check the other tutorial pages
for additional insight in how to use SteepleConnect, and your brand new website!
