Updates to COVID-19 Response Features Published Apr 30, 2020 As we prepare for life after COVID-19, we want to make sure attendees feel safe returning to church. With that in mind, the Spark team has been focusing our efforts on creating new features to support churches as we come out of this pandemic. Below are updates for the four features we’re working on: Ticketing: If you need to limit the size of your services when you begin meeting again, Sparkability Group has a solution ready to build for you: ticketing. Each ticket is individually numbered, but not tied to a person. This solution adds both the countdown and ticketing abilities to your external Rock site, making the administration simple. Request more information about this new feature at: https://sparkabilitygroup.com/#connect TV Apps: Sparkability Group is now able to build and publish Roku and Fire TV apps for your organization. This is a good solution for those who are still unable to attend services in person once church buildings reopen. Making your weekend services easily accessible across many platforms ensures that everyone will be able to stay connected. Request more information about these apps at: https://sparkabilitygroup.com/#connect Church Online Platform Check-in: This feature is already in development and it will be released in v10.3! The ChOP Check-In block allows a person to log-in to Rock and quickly indicate who else is watching with them, providing an accurate attendance count of your online viewers. A special thank you to those who donated toward this feature! Contactless Check-in: This proposed option re-wires check-in to use geo-fencing and mobile phones with a single-use QR code to print labels. Offering ministries, a safer check-in process as we return to in-person services. Initially, we heard a lot of interest in this topic, but haven’t yet received much response in moving the feature forward through funding. If this is of interest to your church, please let us know as soon as possible so we can create a go-forward plan. The intent would be for several churches to contribute toward the full amount, rather than for one church to fund the whole project. Through these challenging times, the Spark team will continue to provide flexible, robust solutions to meet the needs of the community.
