  1. Facebook as a video source

    Bringing in videos from YouTube works great. We have lots of videos on Facebook instead though. Any chance of bringing Facebook videos to Oikos?

      Great idea. We have had a few requests for that recently and will be reviewing this soon! :)

    • Reorder List Items

      Is there a way to prioritize certain items on the 'Get Involved' list? E.g., right now I think it's the latest ones that show up, which sort of makes sense. But at the same time, newer needs might not be the most pressing needs.

      We have been advertising for Play Group needs for a while, and I'd like that one to be featured as the first need, so that people can look at it even if they don't click on the 'get involved' section.

      • Can the Prayer Module have the option for private prayer so only Leaders / prayer team can see?

        Some people won't share personal prayers if they know everyone can see it, so an option for leaders to see it only or 'virtual prayer room' would be great! Thanks!

          Great idea.

          Under review right now but it seems like a very useful feature and we are excited to look into it.

        • Remove inline journal entries for guests

          Currently, Guests can take notes on Devotionals (and possibly other modules) which may be unintuitive for them as the notes will be gone since they do not have an actual account.

            • Make sermons searchable with overview / group / series overview pages (or 'folder' system)

              Particularly important for series', but important for any archive of sermons. It'd be good if instead of just showing all previous sermons on the first page, they could be grouped, so (for instance) YEAR > SERIES > SERMON

              It would also be good to be able to 'tag' sermons with key words, so people could find the sermon that dealt with an issue months ago, even though they don't remember which one it was or what it was called (common issue)

              Also, the Teaser line is only viewable once the sermon is selected. This should be visible before selecting.

                Cools.

                Can def see how this will help and we’ll have to thoroughly design it to do so.

              • Allow users to change font size

                Each user might have preference for different font sizes. This will be useful for text heavy items such as devotionals and study notes.

                • Rostering Module

                  We would like to know when the Rostering Module will be available as this would really help us out and avoid getting duplicate systems :)

                    Thanks for the suggestion. Would be a great addition!

                    If possible, improve the note-taking function to include options for varying font, colour and input e.g. drawing, writing, taking photos.

                      Send an activation email or SMS on signup. This helps verify that the contact method belongs to them. Also, contact should be unique. (only 1 instance of email in system)

                        Unique emails are enforced in the app.

                        The app is currently designed to make signup as simple and seamless as possible as well as allow churches that require authentication to use member verification methods to do so.

                      • Bible verses should auto-link everywhere

                        It would be great if we could write a bible verse anywhere (e.g. John 3:16), and it automatically linked to the Bible module.

                        • Can we have a publish date for videos and photos?

                          Is there a way I can post old videos but still have the new videos on the top? And post videos by categories or tags? Thanks!

                              • Allow users to post anonymous prayer requests

                                Some prayer requests might be sensitive but worth sharing. Allowing users to post them publicly but with it not linking to them (anonymous) would be a useful option.
