Setting a password for the Giving module
With the Giving module ChurchSuite lets you accept and process online donations from your church members - as well as quickly and simply claim gift aid on those donations. As with any data stored within ChurchSuite, the financial information you enter into the Giving module is covered by numerous security procedures, including the option to set a password for the Giving module itself - providing an additional level of protection for your church members' donation information. These passwords are quick and easy to set up, so let's get started!
Setting your Password
Within the Giving module, click on the 'padlock' icon in the upper right hand corner of the page.
Next, click on the "Module Password" drop-down menu and change the setting from "Disabled" to "Enabled".
Then, enter and confirm the password that you would like to use for this module. A password strength and criteria indicator is displayed to help you create a secure password. Click "Save Changes" once you're happy with your selection.
After saving your new module password you will need to log out and log back in to ChurchSuite before the change can take full effect. Once you have done this, attempt to access the giving module. If the previous steps have been completed correctly you will be immediately asked to enter the module password and will not not be able to access the Giving module until you do so correctly.
If you ever wish to change or update your password, or if you decide that you no longer want to have to use one to access the Giving module, you can easily change these settings by once again clicking on the padlock icon.
You will then be able to either enter a new password or disable the module password altogether, but in either case you will first need to confirm your current module password before any changes can be made.
