How to add Word on Fire Content to Your Flocknote
Flocknote’s partnership with Word on Fire gives you a proactive approach to engaging your busy on-the-go parishioners, even the ones who don’t always show up on Sunday. Your parishioners will get a simple email or text message with a short, amazingly-done video to watch on a particular topic of your choice. It’s pushed directly to them via the channels they most often check and read - email or text message. They receive it during the week when it’s convenient and easy to consume. And they can even reply directly back or jump into a discussion if they’d like.
Watch the video or follow the steps below to add Word on Fire content from the Flocknote Library to add to your Flocknote and send to your members.
If you are new to Flocknote, we suggest heading over to our training videos to learn some of the Flocknote basics.
Adding your Word on Fire Mini-Courses (emails and/or texts):
- Click on 'My Dashboard' after logging in to Flocknote. You will then see 'The Library' where all Word on Fire content will be stored for you.
Click on a particular mini-course to see the emails and text messages that comprise the mini-course.
To add the entire mini-course to a group, simply select the blue add to my network button and select a group from the list, or at the bottom you can click to create a new group that will use the title of the course as the group name. Adding this course to your network will pre-schedule all the notes into the group you specify. Once they are added, you can edit, delete, and reschedule any of them.
If you’d only like to add one note from a particular course to your group, you can simply open the note and select the ‘Copy this note’ button in the top corner and a draft of the note will open for you to edit, and save, schedule or send to a particular group.
You're all set! Your members will now receive their Word on Fire emails and/or texts at the scheduled date and time.
Creating your note from scratch and adding Bishop Barron Content:
The second option for sending out Bishop Barron’s content is to craft your own email or text message.
- Select the write a note button from the top left and then select whether you’d like to write a blank email, email newsletter, or a text message and which group you’d like the note to go to.
- If writing an email note, simply select the + icon from the right and select the video option. Once the video block appears in the body of your email - if your parish has access to Word on Fire ENGAGE then - you can simply select one of Bishop Barron’s videos from this drop down menu. From there you can continue to compose your email and save as a draft, schedule to send later or send it now.
- If composing a text note, you’ll see a drop down menu to select a Bishop Barron video at the bottom of the text message composer. When you add a video, it will add a link to the end of your text message so that when people open the text, they can click the link to watch the video online. You can also save this as a draft, schedule to send later or send it now.
