    Pros
    I am so very impressed by the quality of the technical help I have received, which has enabled me to design a website with all the aspects I need in a short space of time.

    A perfect system and it is easy to use and easy to get a overview of the days. I will recommend it to other churches.

    A good presentation, the people who did the presentation clearly knew their product. They asked good questions to understand our needs and focused on possible solutions.

    Cons
    I am not an intuitive user of such packages and therefore value guidance at every step. This can be frustrating.

    Every room is blocked by the event you chosen.

    Maybe in the future there is a possibility to hide the contacts and show only the name of the mailing list.

    Becoming an essential way of managing activity and resoirces

    Reviewed 4 years ago
    Pros

    This is feature rich software that allows us to enter information once for dissemination to multiple channels, including our own website. It has a very good calendar and contact database. We like the cloud hosting and the general feel of the software/

    Cons

    Because the software is so comprehensive it takes a while to get used to using the features. More drag and drop would be helpful for Windows users so we could expand our registered users.

    Full Integration

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    We are still setting up and will be fully live on the first functions in early 2019 - having one reliable and authoritative source of information for our services, events and bookings makes this an invaluable tool

    Pros

    Getting all of our back office functions into one place with integrated database management has been central to improving communication across a dispersed team - we are on the way but the infrastructure of ChurchDesk is just what we have needed. Easy connection between our calendars and the website is also solving a lot of time otherwise wasted on duplication of data with the inherent need to check for coping errors.

    Cons

    Using the basics are straightforward but there is a need for steady regular use and the fantastic support from the team behind ChurchDesk to make the best use of its functions

    Church Website System

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    We have recently moved from an old (rarely updated) FrontPage website to ChurchDesk. The changeover was rather seamless apart from during the launch in church, our router crashed with the number of people trying to use the WiFi! The CMS is easy to use and reasonably speedy. Apart from a couple of niggles about not being able to import events from a spreadsheet and multiple clicking to change options which we are told ChurchDesk are working on; the system is stable and works well for us. We chose this to replace not just our website, but also our MailChimp email newsletter and event management. So far it seems to be doing the trick. It's still early days but so far I am impressed.

    Good Calendar/Homepage interaction

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Once the homepag has been set up it is easy to maimtainntain. You save time by avoiding to contact newspapers with advertisements as the Calendar includes a function that will, when chosen, send the relevant information. It is easy to call in relevant staff and should mistakes happen it's not due to ChurchDesk

    Pros

    Easy interaction

    Cons

    The frequent system changes
