Pros/Cons
  • Pros

  • We have been blown away with all the functions available even on the free plan. It's so well-made, very easy to use and the customer service is very responsive and friendly.
  • Planning center is such great tool to inform and prepare volunteers in advance so that they can perform to the best of their ability.
  • Cons

  • It's a little awkward to block out multiple days in the calendar that aren't consecutive.
  • As a user i several times had problems with logging in, as system did not recognize i was registered by admin twice, with the same email. So it is running 2 profiles with the very same attributes.
  • Pros

  • Two features stand out in their ease of use and helpfulness in tracking and identifying Parishioners. First, the search feature, and second, the reporting feature.
  • Realm is a great database resource to house all of the information for our members to easily access.
  • Cons

  • I have found that it frustrates our users as well.
  • I still struggle to find where things are located every now and again even with 2 years experience.
