Network & Individual Group Settings

This article outlines how to modify both network and individual group settings. While Super Admins can modify the network settings and all individual group settings, Group Admins can only modify the group settings for groups they are an admin for. Group Admins can jump to the second half of this article to learn how. 👍

To modify network settings (for Super Admins only): 

1. Click the gray ( ---) icon. 
2. Select Settings from the dropdown. 

3. You can also find the network settings by going to the "Everyone" group since changes to the "Everyone" group affects everyone in the network. 

4. A popup will slide in from the right allowing you to edit the following: 

  • Network Name – This is the name that will appear when members sign up for your network. This will also be the "From" address when you send emails to the "Everyone" group. You can change it at any time by simply typing in the white box. 
  • Network URL – This is the unique web address that you can direct your members to visit to join your network. We recommend setting it to what you prefer once and then leaving it the same so that members can easily find and bookmark this link. Notice that you can type in the white box and it will preview the full link below it. 
  • Network Type – Choose whether you want to keep your network open (anyone can join) or closed (requiring approval by a Super Admin). We almost always recommend keeping your network (also known as the "Everyone" group) open so that people can find your church and join it easily. Rest assured that your network is still safe and secure and regular members never see private information or have admin privileges. Learn more about group types with the articles at the bottom of the page. 
  • Website –  Add or update your official church or ministry website at any time. This will appear at the bottom of any notes that your network sends. 
  • Address – Add or update your church address at any time. This will also appear at the bottom of any notes that your network sends. 

To modify individual group settings (for Super Admins and Group Admins): 

1. Click the group from the left-hand sidebar. 
2. Click the gray "cogwheel" icon in the top right-hand corner. 
3. Select Group Settings from the dropdown. 

4. A popup will slide in from the right allowing you to edit the following: 

  • Group Name – This is the name that will appear on the list of groups (the lefthand sidebar when you log into Flocknote) and also in the list of groups when members sign up for your network. This will also be the "From" address when you send emails to this particular group. You can change it at any time by simply typing in the white box. 
  • Group URL – If you want to get members automatically added to this particular group (in addition to the "Everyone" group), you can share this link. We will auto-fill this for you (usually a shortened version of the full name of the group), but you can change it at any time. ~ For example, the full URL for this group is holycrossaustin.flocknote.com/volunteers ~
  • Description –  Let your members know who this group is for or what types of messages they can expect from this group. Please note that this is visible to all members and admins. We recommend keeping it short and sweet! :) 
  • Group Type – Choose whether you want to keep your group open (anyone can join), closed (requiring approval by a Group Admin or Super Admin, or hidden (only current members and Admins see). Learn more about group types with the articles at the bottom of the page.
