  • Detailed is for collecting payments and when you need to know who will be attending.

  • Simple Signups is for when you don't need to collect payments and only need to know how many to plan for.

  • None is for an informational announcement to display on your signups page in Church Center.

Caution

Once created, the signup type cannot be changed. It will have to be recreated entirely.

Last, give your signup a name and click Save to create your signup.

By default, the signup will be:

  1. not included on your public page in Church Center. It can be accessed by anyone you share the link with, which is helpful for testing.

  2. open for registration. This allows you and anyone else with access via the shared link to register.
