Connecting CCB with TIC

1 - Go to Settings and Click on Integrations;

2 - Click "Connect" next to Church Community Builder;

3 - Provide Your API URL, and enter your username and password and click on "Save";

4 - Now, select the lists you want to sync.

Selecting Lists

  • All Groups available in CCB will be displayed on the "Your Church Community Builder Groups" page in TIC.
  • Select Lists that you want to sync with Text In Church. You can select one, multiple or all the Lists to be synced at the same time.
  • After selection, click on "Sync Now" button.
  • Provide permission to contact via email and sms.
  • All contacts will be brought across to a corresponding Text In Church group of the same name.

Syncing

  • If you have a large number of people to sync, the first sync can take a few hours.
  • After synced, the system will display the time and date of the last sync (check your Groups for updates).
  • You can sync your CCB account with Text In Church as often as you would like. 

Nightly Syncing

  • You are able to have all the Lists from CCB synced every night. All the contacts that were updated or added in CCB will be synchronized in the TIC.

Two way Sync

  • Not only does your CCB list sync to Text In Church, but any person with valid email account and phone number, you create inside of Text In Church’s synced group will automatically sync back to the designated group in Church Community Builder.
  • After adding a contact to a CCB Group, you can go to the Integration page and manually sync, or enable Night Sync, so all changes will be automatically synchronized.

Disconnecting

  • You can remove the integration with CCB at any time.
  • After disconnecting, the contacts will be kept in the TIC, as "Groups" (with the indication that is not syncing with CCB anymore) and they also can be found in the "People" page.
