November 2018 Updates

First published on: 12th November 2018

These are the latest updates being released to iKnow Church which all our churches will benefit from. As part of using iKnow Church, your church receives all our latest releases at no extra charge.

Communication Suite

Last month we updated the Communication Suite to make it easier to personalise the emails that are sent out from iKnow Church.  We've added a new tag {iKnowLink} so that you can include a link to your iKnow account within these emails.

GDPR for churchesGDPR

Within the GDPR area there is now a badge to show how many Data Subjects are listed within each section.

The screenshot on the right shows the GDPR area where Data Protection Officers or Data Protection Leads can see how many people do not have a Lawful Basis recorded. 

Within People, the Data Protection box now appears for children when viewed in the People module. Someone with access to People can record if that child has a Lawful Basis for their data being stored.  All of these actions are audited within iKnow Church to track when a Lawful Basis is recorded and by whom. 

Teams, Circles and Groups

iKnow Church will now show the data that someone is added to a particular Team, Circle or Group when viewing that persons profile in People.

Church teams


Processes help with Pastoral Care and make sure that people are followed up within the church. They have been a key part of iKnow Church for years.  We've added a new Trigger Point so that a process can be started when a Home Group Leader adds someone to their Group as a visitor. 

Room Booking

We've updated the Room Booking module to improve the speed for churches with large numbers of rooms or bookings. You should now see this module has been given the Red Bull treatment.

Coming Soon

We are just putting the finishing touches to our next major release which will go live in the next two weeks.
