We’re introducing a new web app to our members that will allow people to look up people in the member directory, keep their own information up to date, give online and look up their giving record, register for events and more.
You can get to this tool at: stjames.family or by scanning the QR code at the bottom of this post.
If you’ve previously been using the Instant Member Directory, that is going to be going away at the end of February and so we’d encourage you to add this to your phone straight away so that you can get used to it.
You need to do two things to make this work for you:
- You need to create an account.
- You need to add the webapp to the homepage of your phone.
When you’re at St James’ Connect, there is a ‘Sign In’ button at the top right. On that sign in page, there is a ‘Create an Account’ link right at the top. When you first use this web app, don’t try to sign in – you won’t be able to until you create an account. Creating an account will send you a temporary password that you can use to log in and set your permanent password.
Because this is a web app, and not an app from the app store, you need to add it to your Home Screen yourself. On an iPhone you must be using the Safari (default) browser to do this. You use the central button at the bottom of the browser to pull up the sharing options, and scroll down to ‘Add to Home Screen’. On Android, you do the equivalent thing with the three dots at the bottom right of your browser.
