Highlights include: 1. New Online Giving Reporting, 2. Simplified Refund Reporting, and 3. Free Text Message Increase.Breeze Updated Design
Things look a little different around Breeze. We’ve updated the look and feel of our navigation and menus.
This update was primarily design based to give Breeze a cleaner, more current style and feel. While most everything is still where it was before, the exception is the User and Account Settings menus. They’ve been combined into one easy-to-use menu item.
You can read all about these changes in our Navigation Changes support article.
Add Contributions (beta)
We recently made some improvements to the Add Contributions section in Breeze. The changes were designed to help churches more easily add a contribution to their Breeze account.
A few of the changes include:
- Quicker access to commonly used fields, such as contribution date and fund account
- Add family members at the same time as adding a new person for a contribution
To opt into the beta, simply click on the link in the green banner at the top of the Add Contributions page in your Breeze account.
To learn more, check out our Add Contributions article.
We’ve fully revamped our Extensions page to make it even easier to see what extensions your church has installed and discover new ones you may not have known existed! This redesign also opens the door for us to create some new, exciting Extensions, which we will be sharing very soon. Keep a watchful eye!
You can access the Extensions page by clicking on "More" then "Extensions" in the navigation of your Breeze account.
You can learn more in our Extensions article.
Additional Church Tools
In addition to sharing all the changes we’ve been making around Breeze, we wanted to share a few other ministry tools to help your church thrive!
Loop is a digital church bulletin platform designed to keep your people in the loop!
With Loop, you can easily share announcements, event information, live streams, digital connect cards, videos, online giving, and more in a format that’s easy for people to access, no matter where they are.
You can easily share your Loop digital bulletin through your favorite communication platform by adding your unique link to the body of an email or in a text message. Send it out before your service, or even mid-week as a newsletter.
We invite you to learn more about Loop and try a free 14-day trial.
You may recall last May we launched reopen.church–a free RSVP tool to help churches open safely amid COVID social distancing guidelines. Our heart, though, is to not only help the Church reopen amidst COVID-19 but to help it thrive for years to come. Because of this, we’ve updated the product name to match our larger vision, and we’ve added more free features to serve you and your church even better!
Additionally, for churches looking to do even more with rsvp.church, we’ve added a Pro Tier allowing for account customization and even more features.
Pro features include:
- Administrators can manually add responses
- Create customized questions to ask respondents
- Hide events from the sign up page
- Customize the confirmation email users receive
- Export sign up data to a CSV
- Change the color and content of the sign up page
We invite you to learn more and sign up for a free account at rsvp.church.
Improvements and Bug Fixes
We're constantly making improvements and fixing bugs that occasionally creep into our system. Our engineers are hard at work to make sure you love using Breeze!
We look forward to continue sharing product updates and enhancements as we strive to be the world’s easiest web-based church management software for small and mid-sized churches. Cheers to you for all your work in ministry!
