Family Registration Module

The Family Registration Module will automatically import new family member registrations from your eCatholic website into your ChMS database. Once added to your website, the Family Registration Module appears as a form with pre-defined fields that collect the necessary registration information. 

How to add the Family Registration Module

  1. If not already synced, connect your eCatholic website and ChMS account (view instructions here), as this module will only appear once your technologies are integrated. 
  2. Click the Add Content button in your page toolbar. The Family Registration Module is located within the Add-ons tab (pictured below).

  1. Drag-and-drop the module on to your website (pictured below).

  2. Click the green Publish button to save your changes.

Are there notifications available for new form submissions?

Yes, notifications of new form submissions may be sent to multiple email addresses. To add an email address to receive alerts of new registrations, click on the gear icon in the top right corner of the module to open the Registration Settings (pictured below). Then, add in your email addresses under Alert Email Address. Emails that are listed in this field will receive alerts when new submissions have been completed.

How can I find new submissions in my ChMS database?

When a new submission is sent through the Family Registration Module, a new record is automatically added into the ChMS. A "thank you for registering" email is promptly sent to the family who registered and the Parish Administrator.  

After a Parish Administrator has received a new family registration email, they can search for the new family in the ChMS database. To find the new registrants, navigate to your blue toolbar and twirl down the Families tab and select Family Search. Select a status of New Register and click the orange Search button. New submissions from the Family Registration Module will appear in your results. 

Once the new family is reviewed and activated by the Parish Administrator, the family is then invited to the member portal so they can update the rest of their family information (e.g. members, busy weeks, etc.).
