App v0.47: Create and edit appointments

Translations: Deutsch (Deutschland)

September has arrived and autumn is on its way. Unfortunately, this also means that summer and the summer vacations are over and also at ChurchTools the regular working day slowly returns. The new app release brings with it a long-awaited and important feature. We are very happy that we can finally present it to you.

Create and edit appointments

Version 0.47 brings the functions to create and edit appointments and appointment series. You can now quickly enter appointments on the go, add missing data or delete appointments altogether. And to avoid having to enter important information, you can also set up events, resources, meeting requests and registration groups directly in the app. We are very happy to finally have this feature in the app and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Download Files

Now you can download files. Whether documents, photos or videos – you have control. Your feedback has made this possible. Use this feature to optimize your work and improve your experience.

Service selection considers group

When selecting for a service, the filtered group is taken into account. This way, the right people are found more quickly and the duty assignment is faster.

Faster Group View

The group view in our app has been optimized and now loads faster than ever! Performance is an important issue for us, so we regularly look to make the app faster and more responsive.

Create People and Groups Faster

You can now create new groups or persons via a button on the start page. The small blue plus symbol on the start page takes you directly to the form where you enter the necessary data.
