Since our last update we have been busy working under the hood improving code efficiency and preparing the code base for a number of feature updates.  We just wanted to take a couple of minutes to tell you about some new features, tools, and design elements we have implemented this past summer.

You may have already noticed some these features in your Council Website Dashboard as we have been soft launching them for the last couple of of months.

New Features

  • Add Custom Images to Homepage
  • Officer Report System

Updates

  • Removed Google+ from Social Icons (Google has discontinued this service)
  • Revised the layout of the Members’ Area for ease of use
  • Added the “Charter, Constitution and Laws” of the Order to the Members’ Area
  • Allow multiple 4th Degree Assembly Affiliations
  • Turn off the “Recent Images” section on the council homepage
  • Ability to set images as “public” or “private”.  Private will not display in the recent images block
  • Prayer requests can now be marked as public or private
  • Prayer requests can now be displayed on the Homepage and/or Members’ Area
  • Ability to add a second Outside Guard to the officers listing
  • Major update to the automated minutes generator to reflect changes to the order of Business made at the 2018 Supreme Convention
  • Added a “Site Maps” box to the Dashboard to show your site’s search engine submission history and stats

And those are just the changes you can see.  We made 100’s of updates and changes to various modules to improve performance and usability.

We have also updated our Frequently Asked Questions to reflect these and other updates.

With the introduction of Faith in Action as a replacement for Surge in Service some updates to council sites were neccessary. We have now completed these updates and the Programs page of our Knights Hosting Platform now reflects the new Supreme programs.

Additionally, the Fraternal Activities Survey has been updated to reflect the changes made to it by Supreme as a result of the change to Faith in Action.

Completing the Annual Survey of Fraternal Activities is an important part of council administration. Collecting data from your members can be tedious and time-consuming.

Our Knights Hosting Platform now includes a built-in Member Submission form for the fraternal activities survey. From your members’ area, they can submit the survey. Your Grand Knight receives notification of the submission. Authorized members can access the aggregated results by year from your site’s dashboard.

Members’ can remain anonymous and submit the survey multiple times throughout the year. Since the form can only be accessed from the members’ area, only your members will be able to submit it.

Check it out our Knights Hosting Platform today.

We have made a few updates to our KofC Platform!

We have updated all council sites with the Supreme Council “Everyday Heroes” video series. You will find a section on the home page featuring episodes one and two. Additionally, we have added a whole new page to every council’s site featuring all nine episodes. You can see the link at the top of each page!

Finally, we have added a new email newsletter template. With this template you can quickly tell your council’s members about the “Everyday Heroes” videos, and encourage them to share them with others!

These videos are excellent recruitment and community outreach tools. You may even want to consider sharing one each month at a council meeting!

Keeping your members informed is critical to the success of your council’s programs.  You spend time creating content for your council newsletters, but do your council members get the newsletter?  How about important announcements and other council communications.

Professional and reliable email communication is an absolute must in the digital age.  Ensuring your messages are delivered to your members’ inboxes every time is more complicated than you might think.  Our new Enterprise Grade Email System helps with all of the following:

  • 99.9% Delivery to Inbox and not Spam Folder
  • Protects your personal email address from being blacklisted for sending to large numbers of recipients
  • Track deliverability, bounces, opens and clicks
  • Ensure all members authorized to send messages have the same email list (no more trying to update your own list to find old, new, and updated members!)
