The Feedback Entries page in MinistryPlatform is found in the Communications section. Feedback Entries are most commonly used for prayer requests, praises or comments.
Feedback Entries can be added via:
- Directly on the Feedback Entries page
- On the Feedback sub-page of the Contact, Participant or Program record
- Quick Add
- Connection Card Tool
Feedback Entries can be organized by Feedback Type.
Some other creative ways churches have used Feedback Entries:
- Noting returned/undeliverable mail
- Documenting salvation stories

- You may want to create views based on the Visibility Level. This will enable you to create selections based on the visibility level and then print reports.
- If you want to ensure that only certain users are able to access certain visibility levels, you may want to create one of more Filtered Pages.
