Keeping directory photos up-to-date in Church360° Unite is an important task to help your members connect with one another online. Read this blog post for some different ideas on updating and maintaining these photos for your church.
Photos from Church360° Members Automatically Added
Last night, our developers released an update that allows individual profiles photos from Church360° Members to automatically copy over into Church360° Unite. To see the photos, just head over to the directory page on your site.
We hope that this update will save you time since now you will only have to upload your member photos once, in Church360° Members, rather than upload them in both programs! We also just released an update that allows you to crop photos in Church360° Members, so hopefully the entire process will be improved for those of you.
Please note: This syncing is not a two-way street. If you start off by updating your photos in Church360° Unite, they will not automatically move over to Church360° Members. So, best practice is to do all your photo uploading and editing in Church360° Members and let the software do the rest of the work for you in Church360° Unite!
Uploading Photos as an Administrator
We also wanted to provide you of a few quick reminders of best practices with member photos for those of you who aren't using Church360° Members. Church360° Unite administrators have the privileges to upload directory photos for every member of their congregation. To upload these photos, simply go in to the built-in directory page and click on the name of the person whose photo you wish to upload. Then select the photo for your computer and click "Open". Finally, click the blue "Update Profile" button to save your changes.
Updating Photos as a User
Individual users can also upload their own profile photos or choose to use their Gravatar as their own profile picture. To do this, users just need to locate their individual profile and edit it. From within the individual profile, the process for uploading photos will be the same as outlined above.
We hope that this post will inspire you to update the photos within your directory! If you have any further suggestions or questions, please contact our support team firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 800.346.6120.
