The ChurchSuite summary page
The Summary page is the landing page shown when you first log in to ChurchSuite, giving you a quick overview of your ChurchSuite account. Wherever you are in ChurchSuite you can always return to this page by clicking the ChurchSuite logo in the top left hand corner of the screen.
This section shows you the five most recently-edited people in the Address Book and Children module (for the Site being viewed). This can be quite useful for maintaining an overview of what has been happening, especially when you are part of a team of users.
You can quickly Search the Address Book and Children modules - these searches search for contacts and children across the active, pending and archived sections of the respective modules.
This section gives you a quick overview of the events calendar for the next 7 days for the site being viewed. You can also search the calendar from the Search box.
This section provide shortcut links to other parts of the ChurchSuite ecosystem - My ChurchSuite (the member-facing platform for the currently logged in User), Connect (the Sunday service member-facing platform) and Donate (the Online giving platform).
Note that the My ChurchSuite quick link is only surfaced to a user whose user account is linked to their underlying contact profile in the Address Book and for whom Allow My ChurchSuite login is enabled.
The Summary page includes an Updates feed that shows the five most-recent updates we've been making to the platform. You can filter to view updates from the previous six months. Clicking on an update opens a 'pop up' with a link through to the relevant support article or blog post that explains more.
And for important updates, Users will see the "update" pop up as soon as they log in to ChurchSuite...
Latest news and important announcements
From time to time you may see the latest news banner at the top of the Summary page. We use this section to surface important announcements and upcoming training events.
