Front Porch

Front Porch Integration

Front Porch's Wi-Fi Presence uses your existing Wi-Fi technology to bring new visibility to church attendance, enabling churches to see individual attendance trends in a new way. Front Porch's integration with MinistryPlatform connects this data to real people in your MP database to better understand member engagement and connect with visitors!

Initial Setup and Requirements

An account with Front Porch must be established before the integration with MinistryPlatform can be configured. Once established, the integration must be configured and enabled by Think Ministry.

Please email Support to request your system receive the Front Porch schema and configure captive portal. Your church logo (preferably with a transparent background) for the captive portal must be provided as part of your Support request. Also, if you want the captive portal page to use content different than the provided stock instructions and Terms & Conditions, please provide the desired language as well.

Once configured, you will work with Front Porch to test the captive portal and set a go live date.

Cost

CloudServices subscription is required.

There is no charge from Think Ministry for configuring the integration. Fees from Front Porch will be assessed as per each church's individual contract agreement.

MP Changes

Once configured, you will see a new section (folder) for "FrontPorch Wifi" and two new tables in your MP database:

  • Wifi Devices
  • Wifi Device Sessions

See the field helps for more information on what each field in these records represents.

Currently, what each church does with this data is up to them! Engage with Professional Services to explore options like: adding Activity Log records for Wifi Sessions, marking attendance based on Wifi Sessions, custom view and reports, etc!

Front Porch's interface offers several reports for viewing trends based on type, location, day/time, etc.

For updates to your captive portal's logo, instructions, terms and conditions, email Support.

Coming Soon! Unknown User verification email. Contact created if not known and link clicked. See related MP template to customize content.
