Hadn't used this app in over a year (when it was called Youth Ministry Tracker), but just updated it, and LOVE the improvements! Have now experimented with it and looked through every utility and option- just amazed at its thoroughness. I can already tell it will be a great tool in connecting and organizing my team, my youth and parents, as well as keeping track of attendance and contact info (being able to share such in PDF format and import data from excel will be huge for me). It is finally much more than just an attendance tracker, but a tool for collaboration and connection... Helpful and exciting for those like me who have struggled in (but continued to work at) maturing their ministries into a team approach rather than solo. (With the ability for other connected leaders in my ministry to also access and update the data, even keeping up with this database doesn't have to be a lonely effort!) Who knew the administrative end of youth ministry could actually be so much - dare I say - fun???
I've used this app since its launch and love it. I've even bought it for all of my youth workers so that they could have access to student information, take attendance, create custom groups, etc.
I use it to send messages to specific groups and to be sure I have all of the students' and parents' data with me all the time...
It NEEDS search capabilities for phone numbers and birthdays however... Since I send out mass messages using the app, I don't have all of the phone numbers in my contact list... So if a student replies (or someone else who now has that number... Which happens more often than I thought possible) I don't know who the person is when they ask questions (or ask me not to message them anymore). If o could search, that would be HUGE!
Also, when multiple students have birthdays on the same day it notifies me I have X students with birthdays today... Not helpful really. Sometimes I like to know who has birthdays for a specific month - SEARCHING would be HUGE!!
I've emailed these requests... nada... But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make these additions!
not for big groups
it kept freezing and when we would put new people in the system, we would find that it didn't save. we also had a hard time syncing our iPads. they weren't seeing each other when we tried to sync. we've emailed the company a few times trying to get help and was told to start over with everything. we did what they said and had a hard time recovering our data. eventually we did. we tried to email them about issues (since there was no number to call), but never got a response twice. we were pretty disappointed.
