ChurchTools Most Helpful Reviews

After having tried other tools, I´m very contend with CT.

Pros: As I am the secretary of a small church, I work daily with the database of CT. I organize all our events and maintain our resources. It is a lot easier for me with one tool providing all modules. Bevor I used different tools for my jobs. Now I have all information in one place and can deal with information within one single tool.
Our Sunday service teams use CT, too. For them it is very helpful, that different team members have access to the schedule and can drop off their information like ppt slides, songs, video clips etc. right in the event within "church service". That makes organizing the church service a lot easier.
I was quite surprised how easily I got along with churchtools without needing tutorials etc. Most things work self-explaining.

Cons: I can´t print our calender in a nice set-up. Maybe because I am a mac user?
And as we don´t use "check-in" it seems, that I am not able to print labels directly out of CT.

Comments: All the people I ever showed it too are amazed about the opportunities. Even the price is perfectly affordable. Can´t wait for the next big things to come.

Pros: The bunch of tools in it. Didn´t find any comparable. All the big one like planingcenter are a joke in compare.

Cons: The way to give rights can be complex, but very good instructions though. Everything is possible, but could be more handy.

Highly recommended software for your church. Great quality!

Pros: When you start to use the software you realize that it makes a lot of sense. Once you start using it you and fill it with life you don't want to go back. The more people and teams use it, the more useful it is for everybody. You can manage your groups, teams, services, assign people, have built-in calendars and a powerful rights management. There is also a great community where you can share thoughts, ask questions, submit feature requests, read from others how they are working with the software.

Cons: You need to understand the concepts of groups, teams, the structures etc. and assign the permissions accordingly (who is allowed to do and to see what). This can be frustrating at the beginning, but I would think this is the same for every software which is implementing role and rights management.

Simplifies our processes, helps with the service planning, decentralized information for everyone.

Comments: Makes the church organisation joyful

Pros: Extensive rights management, great support, fast development, I am always looking forward to a new version.

Cons: Until now we haven't notice anything negative. The aditional tables must run over the support, which is really fast and surely does this way to keep the data base integrity.

The perfect software for church management

Pros: This is a great way to manage your church. With limited staff, the software allows a user to provide anyone accessing the data with just what they need to see.

Cons: It's difficult at first, but once you go through tutorials, it's easily understandable software. For medium to large parishes.
