There are four ways for a person to be added to a group at the same time that they’re added to Text In Church.
The first is having them join up via keyword. This enters them into your TIC account and they join the group the keyword is assigned to.
The second way is to have them fill out your Digital Connection Card, which you place on a tablet or computer, with their contact information. This creates their record and adds them to the group connected to that link.
The third way is to import an existing list from a CSV file and select a group you want them to go into. This will allow you to quickly add existing people to a new group, but not duplicate their record.
The fourth way is to manually add a New Person and in the prompts to do that, you have the option to choose which group you want to add them to.
If the person record is already in your system but you simply want to add them to an additional group, you have two options to do that.
Within the People tab, you can see the list of people already in your account. To add multiple people, select the check-box next to their names, and then select the “Action” drop-down. On this menu select “Add to Group.”
This will bring up a pop-up where you can select a group from the drop down menu. When you’ve chosen the group, click the blue “Select Group” button.
If you only want to add one person to a group, you can just click on their name, and then hit the small plus symbol in the lower half of the page, next to “Groups.”
This will bring up a pop-up where you can select a group from the drop-down menu. When you’ve chosen the group, click the blue “Select Group” button.
