Our commitment to you as a trusted client and friend is to continue upgrading and adding value to what we offer. We love hearing from and dreaming / learning with you.

Late last week Mark released a mapping upgrade to Google. You’ll notice familiar Google icons and functionality. Also, you can now enter a specific address under “Pick Your Preferences” and choose to see the groups within a radius of 1 to 100 miles. That means someone looking for a group can enter their address and both see and map groups based on the distance from their house. As you know you can zoom right to a specific house with Google maps. If you prefer greater security than that, click Customization Features, then Security and Accessibility. You can choose to limit the zoom to a neighborhood or area of town. Go to browse groups and take a look. Remember, you can customize your preferences by clickingCustomization Features, then Browse Small Groups Customization Options.

Several people have mentioned to us that they would like to be able to customize the email reminders that go to leaders each week. The goal is to leverage those emails as a way to communicate with and resource leaders. One person asked about being able to customize the webpage a leader goes to when they have finished their weekly communication. We loved this idea and feel like it accomplishes the same thing as the ability to customize the email reminder. So, last week, we also released the ability for you to customize the landing page when a leader finishes his/her report. Check it out underCustomization Features, then Email Reminder Options.

Is it just me, or is there a sense of excitement in the air about the potential of a new decade and what God is doing among us?
