Text In Church’s Digital Connect Card (DCC) is just what it sounds like: a connect card that is digital. What makes it so fantastic, though, is when you set up a DCC in Text In Church, you do so within a specific group(s). This means, anytime that DCC is filled out, that person’s contact information goes directly into the group you’ve selected. The information is organized in your groups without you having to lift a finger.
This is also perfect to use on tablets before or after service and at community events as a check-in station.
To start, click on the Groups section.
Next, click on the Group you want to add the DCC link to. On the Group overview page you will see the blue words "Connect Card Links;" click on that.
Inside you will see options for each of the Digital Connect Cards with a blue hyperlinked "Link" word next to each. Click on the one you want to see to open a new tab.
This will open a new window with a preview of the card. Then, you can simply copy and paste the URL from the address bar for use on a tablet, or computer. Each link is unique to the group you are in, so be aware of this as you copy to use.
You can email this link to a volunteer who doesn't have access to TIC but is helping enter paper connections into a group. This can also be sent out to volunteers bringing their own tablets to use at a community event for check-in or registration for a giveaway. Use it in the lobby to get RSVPs for upcoming events, or even at a hospitality station for new guests.
We also give you the option to have Smart Connect Cards added to your website. Click here to learn more about the Smart Connect Cards.
