Shepherd's Staff WebTools is a separate portal that you can log into through a web browser, and it allows you to complete certain tasks in Shepherd’s Staff when you are away from your church computer.
- WebTools makes it easy for volunteers to help out with basic tasks like entering attendance and offerings, and this saves time for church staff.
- No confidential data is stored online, and the data from the web easily syncs with what is stored on your computer.
- Access these WebTools from anywhere with an internet connection, even on a tablet or a Mac.
WebTools is only available in the 2017 version of Shepherd’s Staff and requires a support contract.
