Flocknote is an easy to use communication tool built for churches.

Flocknote allows church administration and leaders to communicate with their people on demand. It is a simple, straightforward, and cost effective solution made for churches.

Pros

The software is simple, straightforward, and cost effective. The software allows communication through email and text. It has analytics for understanding how the messages were received and red. Groups can be setup to communicate with specific people.

Cons

When people attempt to communicate back, you will have to manually look for these communication. Notifications are not given when someone communicates back. This is only a one-way communications platform.

Hi Benjamin, We're so glad to hear you're finding Flocknote helpful for communicating with your church members :) I do have some good news for you. There is a way to be notified via email when someone replies to a note. To enable these notifications, you can simply login and select the Purple Bell icon and click to highlight the speech bubble icon next to any group that's listed to be notified via email when a comment is left on a note. To see this process in action you can check out our training video on comments here: http://flocknote.com/training/comments-and-replies I hope this is helpful :) If you have any questions or if we can be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at help@flocknote.com God bless, Kaitlin R.

Excellent tool for communicating

We, as a church community and retreat center, need to be able to keep lists of different groups of people and to send them information in a stylish and attractive manner that also lets us communicate back and forth with them using multiple methods. Flocknote is excellent for this.

Pros

I love that I can keep track of all our families in one place. I love that you can email and text at the same time depending on what the users want. I love that you can choose multiple groups to send to and customize each note with style. I love that you can see who has opened your message and read it. I love that you can send polls, rsvp’s, and more.

Cons

I wished it could track people more like a database as well which they got closer to with added features but which cost extra.

Reasons for Choosing Flocknote

All the reasons listed above.

Reasons for Switching to Flocknote

We were using excel sheets, PDS, and Outlook to create lists and groups. None of these did all these things together and none did them very well. We still use Excel to keep track of certain things, but Flocknote has made life much easier.

Heya James! We appreciate your time and consideration leaving us a review. It's great to hear that you've been loving Flocknote so far and enjoy many of its features! We recently released Flocknote People (an add-on subscription) which is a smarter way to manage your members. If you have any suggestions or feedback about this new subscription, I encourage you to let us know at help@flocknote.com. We'd be happy to discuss how we could make this program a better fit for Our Lady of the Angels. :)

Stay on the Same Page with FlockNote

The scheduling feature could be tweaked a bit. I have had problems scheduling a reminder email. One time I only emailed myself. Another time, my link did not work for people to send payments through Paypal. So, I think it is something that can be improved.

Pros

It is easy to notify people in the day and age of technology with a flocknote, especially with a mobile device. It is really vital for updating students in religious education programs when there are important changes such as class times and reminders.

Cons

I am all for accountability, but notifying everyone (I mean everyone) when a change is made is not necessary. What is important is the new updated content.

JUST getting started

What I believe we will accomplish with Flocknote is reach and communicate with members of ministries and the members of our parish generally with information and inspiration as well as hear back from the same folks with suggestions going forward.

Pros

I have not actually implemented the software for our parish yet... I just met with the business manager of the parish along with the IT guy and presented why I think this will be good for our parish and got the green light to get started.

Cons

I can't really say yet as I am just now getting this up and running for our parish.

Reasons for Choosing Flocknote

It seems that Flocknote is very user friendly for low tech individuals like myself.

Handy tool for ministry

Overall, I enjoy using Flocknote very much. The crew is great to work with and the designers of the program are constantly working to add new products or to improve the product and welcome suggestions from their customers.

Pros

The feature I most looked forward to, and appreciate as I use it, is the statistics that are given after a message is sent. I can see who has opened the email, how many people have clicked on each imbedded link, & whose email kicked it back. It is also very easy to add links, videos, and images with this software. The staff is quick to respond, friendly, and eager to help their customers. Love their little punny remarks, too.

Cons

I like to use gifs but the gif program with Flocknotes is not the best. It only shows one image at a time, so you have to constantly click next and it takes a few moments for the next image to load. I don't think I have ever found a gif that I have liked or used.

Reasons for Choosing Flocknote

For me, ParishSoft email didn't work so I always had to use my google account. No other messaging software offered the ability to see the analytics (called Unolytics) of who opened the message.

Reasons for Switching to Flocknote

Diocesan wide option to work with Flocknote, which was also marketed with eCatholic. I would say this was a product that was much needed in the field, and Matt Warner and Matt Sewell presented the software well to a business of leery, older, tech scared people!

Thanks so much for this review, Judi - we really appreciate it. Also, if you prefer another GIF tool online, you can always find the exact one you want, save it to your computer, and upload it to your note via the Image Feature. Hope that's helpful! :)
