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.

Response from Flocknote

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.

Flocknote People assessment

We have no Parish Registry and our recording of Sunday offering is done in Excel.

Pros

Ease of use. Well organized and stable.

Cons

I'm particularly interested in next development cycle (import, reports, receipts..) I would like to be able to duplicate batches from a previous month. We have electronic giving for 55 individuals who give the same amount monthly. Additionally I'd like to be able modify fund designations as well as remove designations where there is no $ amount. Renaming or removing batches would be helpful as well as exporting batches in its entirety. Recording of fund campaigns would be a nice addition.

Reasons for choosing Flocknote

Communicate piece. We are still evaluating Flocknote People.

Response from Flocknote

Hiya Brad -- thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review! Good news -- we are currently working on some new developments, including some of the features you mentioned you'd like to see. I will share all your suggestions with our development team as they work on those new features. I appreciate your feedback! :)

more time to really review

I didn't select or pay for it, the church administration did. I can see the potential for using this software but I need to understand it more.

Pros

Once the members are correctly entered it is marvelous at creating a professional notification and sending it to the correct people.

Cons

On my first excel upload to a subgroup, I learned that unless you have access to the EVERYONE group I won't know about persons who have already been entered. Thus I may overwrite data that I don't want to lose. There is no undue or 2nd warning before the update is done and permanent. I think the documentation needs a lot more work and functionality.

Response from Flocknote

Hi Michael, I appreciate the time you took to leave us a review and some helpful feedback. I'm passed along this feedback to our developers as they continue to improve the site. I'd also be happy to hop on a call with you to provide any additional training you might need for free. You can schedule that at a time that works for you at Flocknote.com/call. Or, if you prefer, simply shoot us an email at help@flocknote.com and any one of our Happiness Engineers would be glad to help. :)

my review

I like it and am trying to figure out where I can use it in my organization for a cost I can handle.

Pros

ability to reach people either by email or text, the ability to have a discussion, the ability to have an easy signup experience. Easy to generate notes and get them out.

Cons

The icons are somewhat confusing. What they mean and where they are located. The cost is our big tripping point only because we are not a parish, but a free standing social action ministry.

Reasons for switching to Flocknote

Insightly is too much for what we need and they are unresponsive to "all the pebbles in the shoe" issues.

Response from Flocknote

Hi Walter. I appreciate the time you took to leave us a review. I'm glad you've found it easy to generate notes and that your members have had an easy signup experience. You mentioned some confusion with the icons and price has been an issue, so I'd be happy to discuss this further and get more details to help you in the best way. Would you mind reaching out to help@flocknote.com? I appreciate it! :)

Communication Within the Flock

Overall I am very satisfied with Flocknote. The group that uses it numbers over 75 now, so we use the paid option, and it's worth every penny for the increased and streamlined communication.

Pros

Flocknote is a messaging app that allows you to connect with people in your church more easily. Since signing our ward up for the software, communication has become a breeze. There are people in my church I didn't even think to reach out to, but because we're all on the same system, I can find their contact info and let them know what's happening. It's made my life as a visiting teacher much easier.

Cons

My one gripe (if you could call it that) is a lack of integrated Bitmoji software. A lot of the kids in my church (and their moms) use Bitmoji in regular text conversations, so it'd be great to have that option built into the app. Other than that, it's great!

Response from Flocknote

Thanks for this fantastic review! Haha I'm a Bitmoji fan myself, so I've passed this info along to the team. Thanks for coming to us with your honest feedback and ideas. Feel free to reach out to us at help@flocknote.com if you have any others. :)
