As an administrator, you must complete these steps in the following order to set up Access ACS.
Before You Begin
The first step is to sign up for and sign into Access ACS. Then, you can upload records from ACS to Access ACS.
Setting Up Global Preferences
Next, it's time to set up global preferences, such as personal and community calendars, if you want to use them. You can also set up the administrator e-mail address, which receives e-mails when users within your organization report problems. Next, set up your online directory preferences, including the information that displays in online directories.
Setting Up Access ACS
Now, you can set up leadership positions, user profiles and users, group names, groups, small groups, and small group categories. You can also set up calendar locations and types, if you are using the built-in Access ACS calendar.
If you use online giving, this is the time to set that up, as well as setting up your merchant account.
