Find out how to get organised when you're serving on a team
Church Suite is fairly intuitive. You can probably figure this out without following these instructions. But if you are the type of person who likes to have it all laid out for you - here are the step by step guides to help you make the most of your rotas in My Church Suite.
Logging onto My Church Suite
You should have received an invitation (via email) to My Church Suite. Please click on the link in the email to set up an account. If you haven't registered for an account you can do so in the Church Suite card on fbcnext.com
How to see when you are serving on a rota
Now you can see the upcoming dates that you are serving on a team (Next Serving); the dates you have blocked off as unavailable to serve (Unavailability) and all the rotas for the teams in which you serve (Rotas)
You can add these dates into your Google or iCal diary by clicking the iCal or Google links. It will automatically add any future dates into your diary for any rota on which you volunteer.
Not all of the rotas are set up yet on Church Suite, but they will be soon.
How to set dates that you are unavailable
If you are part of a Sunday morning team that has set teams (Week A, B, C & D) and you are unavailable for one of the weeks that your team is serving, we ask you to organise a swap with another member of the team.
How to swap a serving date with someone else on the team
If you are scheduled to serve on a date that you can no longer do, we ask that you try to organise a swap with another team member. Church Suite makes this a much simpler process than before.
* Find the date you want to swap and click the 3 buttons next to your name.
* Click 'Organise Swap'.
* Select the person you are swapping with and the return date that you are covering in their place. If no return swap is organised, select 'No Return Swap'.
* Click 'Save Changes'.
That's it. The system will send an email to you; the person you have swapped with and the person(s) coordinating the rota.
