July 2020 Updates

It’s officially Summer, and we’re jumping in — literally! Many of us are staying close to home, swimming in nearby pools, and searching for drivable getaways.

We are also diving into new TouchPoint features to serve you better. There is a greater need for contactless communication. I hope you’re taking advantage of the tools that enable that kind of outreach via mobile. Features like two-way SMS, push notifications in the TouchPoint app, deep-linking, and other features encourage safe communication with your church community.

Indeed, your safety is our top concern. That's why TouchPoint Summit is going virtual this September. We’ll share more details about the new format in the weeks ahead as we remain busy crafting content to help your mission.

We are eager to share TouchPoint’s new tools for online giving. It’s exciting, so come and see! Join the show-and-tell giving webinar at the end of the month to learn what’s new, empowering you to get a head start on planning your giving campaigns!

Until then, we hope you’re taking the time to recharge, refresh, and respond in new and challenging ways. Let’s rise to the occasion… and jump in!

UPDATE: TouchPoint Summit

TouchPoint Summit 2020 is going virtual! 

Mark your calendar for Thursday, September 17. Based on your feedback, this year’s Summit will be condensed into a half-day on Thursday morning. The day will kick off around 10 AM central time to accommodate our churches in as many time zones as feasible. 

Summit in Memphis will convene in September 2021. We look forward to seeing you in-person then.

We’re grateful to everyone who provided their comments in the survey. 

In August, you will receive pricing information, a new registration link, and an updated agenda that includes breakout session topics. 

If I’ve already registered myself and a guest to attend Summit, will I get a refund? 

If you have already registered for Summit, you will be automatically registered for the virtual event, and your registration fee will be deducted from what you have already paid. The remaining balance (including event passes and guest registrations) will go toward next year’s Summit in Memphis. If you would like a full refund, please submit your request by Tuesday, September 1, 2020.

New Features

Two New SQL Recipes

We have recently released two new SQL scripts that can be added to the blue toolbar. One shows donor giving totals by quarter for a three-year period. The other lists people who are enrolled in multiple Main Fellowship classes. Read more.

Deeplinks Redirect to Web Browser for Desktop Users

What happens if a user is on a desktop or laptop when clicking on a deeplink? Now, when possible, the link will redirect the user to the corresponding web page. Read more.

Tips & Tricks

  • Are you trying to drive more people to your mobile app? Try out our new Deeplinking features. These are special links that drive users straight to your app if they’re using a mobile device.
  • Replacement codes are now available in SMS! You can now personalize any text message the same way you would an email using replacement codes such as {first}.
  • Have you ever needed to adjust the Programs and Divisions for multiple Organizations at once? Rather than go to each organization, try going to the Organization > Search page. From there, you can access the Management View tab and modify Programs and Division en masse!

We are grateful for your partnership. Because our clients are often our biggest champions, TouchPoint wants to say thank you in a BIG way!

Introducing the TouchPoint Referral Program

We understand the value of word-of-mouth advertising. We appreciate so much the positive feedback you give to churches looking to make their Church Management System the best it can be. Now, your church can directly benefit by making those connections for TouchPoint!

When you refer your peers to TouchPoint, you’re not only helping us serve more churches with what we believe is the most comprehensive enterprise solution on the market; you are also helping us accelerate the development of new enhancements. As you’ve seen, we all benefit from one church’s initiative to build upon our platform, which is shared by all. But there’s more!

We want your church to benefit from the connections you make for TouchPoint. We are offering a credit on your account OR a direct donation to your organization, totaling 25% of first year subscription revenue by these new clients.

This program is scheduled to conclude on December 31, 2020. There is no maximum number of referrals you can submit. 

Email us to learn more.
