Link Accounts from Multiple Churches

Created on:
Updated on:

If you volunteer with multiple churches and would like to easily switch between accounts and even view both schedules in one screen, link your accounts by using the same email address or phone number, password, and name.

Benefit: Services Scheduling

Besides the ability to easily toggle between accounts, the biggest benefit is being able to see your scheduled plans for all linked churches.

Under My Schedule, view when you're scheduled for both churches.

When scheduled for the account you're not viewing, you'll see the account name above the plan card. Availability and scheduling preferences are shared, so you won't be double-booked in two places!

Blockout dates, however, can be specified to one church or to all linked churches.

Tip

If you link your accounts, Services generates conflicts for the linked churches. They will only see the conflict when trying to schedule you for a time you're already scheduled in another church; the conflict is not shown in any other place.

1. Update Profile Information

From your profile in any app, edit your information to be the same for both churches.

  1. If you use a nickname in one church but your full name in another, change your name to be exactly the same.

  2. Add the email address or phone number from the other church. You can use a multiple in your profile.

Select Save to update your profile.

2. Reset Your Password

Once your name and email address or phone number is the same in accounts you want to link, log out and reset your password to be the same.

All accounts associated with the entered email address or phone number will be available for a password reset. Use the checkboxes to choose which accounts need a new password.

Checking the boxes does not link the accounts. You can have the same password for many accounts without linking them.

If an account is missing from this list, try another email address or phone number.

Reset Errors

If you try to reset your password and receive an error, try a different email address or phone number, or ask your leader to make sure your profile is still active.

3. Link Accounts

Now that your password is updated, log in with the new password. Accounts with the same name and email address or phone number are in the same box. If the accounts are linked, the churches will show in the same box.

If they're not linked already, click Link these accounts.

Accounts listed separately have a different name and cannot be linked. To link them, log in and change the name in the profile.

When you click Link these accounts, choose to log in to one, and you can toggle to the other. Click your name in the upper right to easily switch to the other account.

If you don't want your accounts to be linked anymore, click unlink, which will unlink the accounts and leave you logged in to your current account.

My Accounts are Unlinked!

When the name or designated email address or phone number of your profile is changed--through a form, registration, or profile update--your accounts will become unlinked. You'll need to log in and update the profile information again in order to link your account.
