If a church makes heavy use of the Connections system and has many different Connection Opportunities, it makes sense to separate them into different Connection Types.
Being able to tailor the settings for each Type to closely reflect the needs of similar Opportunities helps staff to work the Connection Requests appropriately.
Additionally, we use Connection Types to reflect how the Opportunities fit into our church Vision and Strategy. For example, we use the language of Christ, Community and Calling to help people become better connected. They are currently sorted alphabetically and we are looking at using multiple My Connection Request blocks to be able to arrange them as desired. Since we repeat that language so much, it would help if we could sort the Connection Types in the UI directly.
