Who should attend:

Course Option #3: Contributions Management Training

Description:

Built for folks who are already comfortable with the basics of MinistryPlatform and who also happen to be financially minded, this course will take a holistic approach to handling the Contributions Management process. Not only will it cover the best practices for donations entry and processing, but also how to distribute the effort as well as getting the data out of the system to report to leadership.

Course Option #4: Extending MinistryPlatform

Description:

Learn how to extend MinistryPlatform by adding custom fields, pages and sub-pages without writing code. Find out how to create filtered pages to focus your users on their data. Follow along step-by-step as we create a workflow process. Your church has a unique Gospel ministry. This is the class to help you make sure MinistryPlatform is tailored to that ministry.

Who should attend:

IT Staff, Web team members, and Database Managers who want to eliminate spreadsheets, track new ministry efforts, or save time when building custom applications. Administrators who want a better understanding of what is possible will benefit from this training, but it is designed for those with access to the MinistryPlatform Setup Area. A few topics focus on those who have direct access to the MinistryPlatform database server.
