About Church Office Online

Church Office Online is a web based church management software with its own iOS and Android apps . Using Church Office Online’s mobile apps, users can add new members, edit existing member profiles, manage groups, review completed and incomplete follow-ups and tasks, assign interactions to staff, take event attendance, register visitors, communicate with members, and more. Integrations with Twilio and MailChimp allow users to send out mass emails and text messages to church members, notifying them of emergencies, cancellations, changes to meetings, and keeping them up to date with church news

Church Office Online empowers members to manage and update their own profile information, without allowing access to other members’ personal or sensitive information. Members can view and download annual contribution statements, search for other members in the online directory, see events on the church calendar, and be reminded of birthdays and other important church anniversaries.

Church Office Online’s child check-in feature allows parents to check their children into events using their mobile phones once they are within half a mile of the church. Name tags are printed automatically on check-in, with matching numbers for parents and children to increase security, and the option to include health and allergy notes on children's badges.

Church Office Online’s integrated online giving lets users create multiple funds to accept online, mobile and kiosk donations. Through the custom-branded online giving page, members can set up recurring contributions, which are automatically collected, and users can also enable Facebook integration to allow members to donate directly from the church’s Facebook page. There are multiple payment options available, such as debit card, credit card, and eChecks, and users can choose which forms of payment to accept. Church Office Online also enables users to view giving trends, high and low donation months, and month-to-month donation comparisons, as well as creating donor contribution statements and custom reports.

Key benefits of Church Office Online

Users can send text messages to individual members and groups for emergency notifications, changes to planned meetings, cancellations, or prayer alerts.

Integrated online giving allows users to accept online donations into multiple funds, as well as mobile and kiosk giving, with options for automated recurring donations, and social media integration to let members donate directly through the church’s Facebook page.

Parents can check their children in on their mobile phones before arriving at the church, and name tags are automatically printed with matching security numbers for parent and child, plus notes on health and allergies.

Members can manage and update their own profiles and contact details, download contribution statements for their records and taxes, search the online member directory, and view the church calendar, all without being granted access to sensitive information.

Through the Church Office Online mobile apps, users can add and edit member profiles, manage groups, review tasks and follow-ups, assign member interactions to staff for completion, take attendance and track absences, send mass communications, and more.

Best church soltware out there!

Overall a great program, tons of features, works for everyone who works in the church, user-friendly for members and reliable, with great customer service.

Pros

Our church has tried a lot of softwares/programs for church but after going through demos it settled with Church Office Online. We are able to operate every department from our computer and keep in touch with our members. The program allows for calendar sharing, mass communication, accurate child check and even links to their giving /donating platform.

Cons

It takes a few tries to fully learn the ins and outs of the program, but the customer service was very helpful.

Just what we needed

Reviewed on 2020/04/06

Pros

We are a small church, and the available options and features provided by Church Office Online are perfect for our congregation. It is especially easy to pull attendance reports and see trends in who we have not seen on Sunday mornings in a while. This has helped our task of shepherding the congregation each week.

Cons

I think the only “downside” is that it might lost functionality for a bigger church. It is not as user friendly in some ways (scheduling and viewing events as a user is a little confusing) and that would be a drawback for a bigger church that has more programming.

I would definitely recommend COO to a small to medium size church who wants to keep things simple for decent pricing such as my church.

Pros

The overall look of COO is pleasing and not intimidating. Thus far it is user friendly. The casual computer user would find it simple enough to use. This was VERY important in selecting COO. Many congregants/volunteers are occasional or casual computer users. It was important to find an application that they would find to be user-friendly and comprehensive.

Cons

Security:
The browser back button is active. No one should be able to use the back button and access member/child information. Right now this can be done.
Access:
We are forced to log out of one status and have to login again as another.

Having to change a person's password in order to change their access status. Example: from attendance taker to standard.

Main Menu:
Would be more comprehensive, if the modules were accessible AFTER login. Having those big boxes on the login page was just plain confusing. (child check-in, individual access). Allow users to login, but only access what they are assigned to.
The main menu s/b accessible from every page.

Delete or archive an accounting category and NOT delete the contribution records. We often have temporary fund accounts that no longer need to display in the list.

Be allowed to select our own "method of payment" default.
An Events Registration module would be helpful.

Response from Church Office Online

Hi Bert,

Thank you for your review and your thoughts about Church Office Online. We appreciate hearing from you and will take your suggestions into consideration as we add new features to Church Office Online.

We would like to specifically address your security concerns.

Security:
We take security very seriously; protecting church data is of utmost importance to us. We utilize industry leading security practices, infrastructure and encryption. You can learn about all of our security measures on the following page: http://www.churchofficeonline.com/Tour/Security

Disabling the back button would not improve security of our application and would have a negative impact on ease of use. If a single computer is shared by multiple users, each user should use the "Log Out" button when they end their session and close the browser. This ensures that the next person using the computer to log into Church Office Online cannot access any data their user role does not permit.

Thanks again,

Aaron
