Create an online form that ministers use to register at your parish. You can then pull their information into new minister records or update existing records.

Creating a Web Registration Form

Create a registration form for your parish's website. When ministers complete the form, the registration data is saved to our secure web server.

  

 To create an online registration form
  1. Navigate to Ministers > Processes > Minister Online Registration.
  2. Select Create Web Registration Form, and select your site management option. Click Next.
  3. Read the process description, then click Next.

    Useful Information

    Note that this process creates a Read Me file, as well as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files. Copy these files and send them to your website manager.

  4. Enter the form name and brief introduction to display at the top of your web form.
  5. Select the sections you want to display on the web form, and click Next.
  6. If you selected to show user keywords, enter the information. Click Next.
  7. Select the fields you want to include on the form. You can edit field names in the Edit to Show on Form column. Click Preview the Form to see what the fields look like on your web form.
  8. Then select which of those fields you want to require the minister to enter. An asterisk (*) displays on the form beside the required fields you select. Click Next.
  9. Enter the email address of the person to notify after a minister registers online. Typically, this is the person who processes registrations.
  10. Compose the confirmation email that each registering minister receives.
  11. If you want to redirect ministers to another webpage after submitting their form, enter the URL. Enter the number of seconds to show the confirmation page before redirecting.

    Tip

    Enter 0 seconds to go directly to the webpage without showing confirmation.

  12. Click Next.
  13. Select whether to store or transfer the files, and enter any necessary information.
  14. Click Finish or Transfer.


After the files are created, copy them and have your website manager put the form on your website. As families fill out the form, the person you entered as the Notice Email Address for Your Church receives an email.
