Limit sensitive data to specific users

Collaborate securely on increasing your outreach

Now you can easily grant more people access to ChurchDesk People. With our new permissions, you can control who has access to sensitive data.

ChurchDesk People allows you to collaborate on engaging with your church community. We’re seeing many advantages in enabling more of your volunteers (as well as the clergy) working with member engagement.

You should always consider which information you’re giving other users access to see. However, with the GDPR it has become even more important. In ChurchDesk it’s easy to control what information is shared. Follow the steps below and continue collaborating.

Are you the organisation administrator? Here’s what you do.

  1. Navigate to ChurchDesk People
