Customising the My ChurchSuite home screen
While the majority of the member-facing My ChurchSuite content is driven automatically by the underlying modules in ChurchSuite, it is also possible to customise certain elements of the member user experience to use language and terminology familiar to your members.
Customising the My ChurchSuite home page welcome message
You can customise the My ChurchSuite home screen welcome message that members see after they log in - shown at the top of the Home page above your Featured Events.
Head into the Address Book module's settings via the cog wheels icon in the top right-hand corner of the module and select the My ChurchSuite Options tab.
To override the default message simply add you own custom Welcome Message in the space provided. A wide range of text formatting and HTML editor tools are also provided allowing you to add links, images or other embedded content if you wish.
Save your changes before navigating away from the module settings. You may need to refresh your My ChurchSuite browser page to see your changes reflected on the Home page.
Customising the My ChurchSuite menu names
You can customise the default menu names used in My ChurchSuite, perhaps to suit language and terminology familiar to your members. For example, maybe you call your small groups 'life groups', or maybe you want to change 'My podcast' to 'My sermon messages' - no problem, here's how!
For each My ChurchSuite menu name you wish to customise head in to the corresponding module's settings within ChurchSuite as follows...
My ChurchSuite menu
|Home||Cannot be customised|
|My Communication||Address Book|
|My Details||Cannot be customised|
|My Groups||Small Groups|
|My Podcast||Address Book|
|Search for Others||Address Book|
Each module's settings are accessed via the cog wheels icon in the top right-hand corner of the module. In this example we're in the Address Book module's settings. Select the My ChurchSuite Options tab.
Locate the Navigation settings. In the space provided overtype the new menu name you would like to use (up to 20 characters). Deleting a custom entry will restore the default menu name. Note that it is not possible to change the icons associated with the menu names.
For example, here we've changed the Search for Others menu name to Church directory...

Remember to save your changes before navigating away from the module settings and before moving on to the next module.
