Learning Opportunities

December Crossings Webinar: Data Forms 101

Join Paul Schneider at 1 p.m. EST on December 7 for a basic tutorial and Q-and-A session on creating data forms. Data forms allow people to submit content or contact updates directly to your database. They power member portals, such as the People Portal and Church Dashboard, and form the foundation for UMC functions, such as clergy comp and fund balance reports. Add it to my calendar ?

Did You Know?

Brick River has a user community on Discord. Previously, we utilized Basecamp to facilitate conversation between users, take product suggestions, and solve the world’s problems. But Basecamp sent too many email notifications, so we stopped using it. Now, we’re inviting you to join our Discord community where there are separate conversations for different UMC modules — like appointment tool and clergy comp — as well as a general channel for idea-sourcing and problem-solving with your fellow Brick River users. Wanna join? Hop on our Discord server here.
