One BIG factor that sets Flocknote People apart from other member management tools is that your data gets better with time, not worse. Intelligent Info Gathering (IIG) is one way we can ensure your data keeps getting better and better!

Okay, so what exactly does IIG do?

In a nutshell, IIG will ask your members to confirm their info in the footer of emails you send through Flocknote to ensure the information you have on file is up-to-date. You just have to sit back and relax -- trust the system to gather this information for you. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! 🍋

IIG is turned on by default for any profile fields you add to your network or group. Basically, the system will periodically ask your members to confirm their info is up-to-date. Here's what it looks like:

How often will my members see this?

We do not want this feature to feel intrusive whatsoever, so we've put some precautions in place to make sure your members don't feel pestered. 

Members will only be asked to confirm info once every few months. Our system is so smart that it will even identify sensitive words/notes, and we won't ask members to update their info if the system finds that the note may be sensitive (i.e. a funeral announcement or tragedy, etc.)

What if I don't want to use this feature?

No hard feelings - we understand! To turn this feature off, you'll simply want to make sure that your members are not able to edit a field when you're creating a custom profile field, by unchecking the circle, as seen below. 

Another option is to turn this feature on and off for a particular note when you're working in the note composer, by clicking on the Delivery button and checking or unchecking the Intelligent Info Gathering box. 

Please note: Like all of your member information in Flocknote, the information you gather and store in your network is solely for the use of your church or organization. We will never, ever sell or share any information gathered in Flocknote. You can read more by check out our full privacy policy at flocknote.com/privacy.
