If you are getting ready for your next groups season, you can make bulk changes to all of your groups at one time. Filter and sort the groups to find the ones you want to change, then use the bulk actions to make the changes.
Filter and sort the groups to show the ones you want to update.
Check the first box to select all groups or the boxes next to the individual groups you want to update.
Click the pencil to open the bulk edit menu, where you can choose to edit, archive, or create events for selected groups.
Once you've selected the groups, click the pencil and select Edit from the bulk edit menu.
In the modal, update the Church Center visibility or the enrollment status of the selected groups.
Choose whether the groups should be Listed or Unlisted on Church Center.
Allow people to request to join or set the groups to Closed.
Click Update to apply the changes.
To archive the selected groups, click the pencil and select Archive from the bulk edit menu.
Click Yes, archive to remove the groups from your main groups list.
You can create a single or recurring event for multiple groups simultaneously, which can be helpful at the beginning of a season!
There is no way to cancel or delete events in bulk after you use the Bulk Create Events option. The created events must be managed individually.
To start creating events for your selected groups, click the pencil and select Create events.
Jump to the appropriate section below to follow the steps for creating a One time event or a Repeating event.
You can only create events in bulk for active groups. If you try to include an inactive group in your event creation, that group will be skipped.
In the Bulk create events model, select One time as the Event type to create a single event for the selected groups.
Fill in the event details and toggle whether you want to override the group defaults for location and reminder.
Click Create event to complete creation.
Use this feature when your groups have a Meeting Schedule set and still need to create recurring events using that schedule.
If events have already been created, this feature will create additional events for those same times.
In the Bulk create events model, select Repeating as the Event type.
Fill in the event details and click Create event.
Suppose there is a week all groups will skip, like a holiday. In that case, bulk create that repeating event in batches by creating one event that includes the date range for the weeks before the holiday, then creating a second event that includes the date range for the weeks after the holiday.
