When integrating Text In Church with Planning Center, Church Community Builder, RockRMS, or MailChimp, users can set the Sync Destination to create a new group in Text In Church or connect the integration to an existing Text In Church group.
This process seamlessly transforms the existing Text In Church group with its Keyword, Connect Cards and Automated Workflows into a syncing group!
When setting the Sync Destination to an existing TIC Group, it's important to note that it is a One-to-One Relationship:
A single list or group from the integration can be connected to a single Text In Church group. This means that:
Multiple groups from the integration cannot be connected to one single Text In Church group (many groups syncing into one TIC group).
A single list or group from the integration cannot be connected to multiple Text In Church groups (one group syncing into many TIC groups).
