Once your ministry’s account is live, everything your staff needs for managing and updating your account can be found in your manager dashboard. This resource shows a bird’s-eye-view of the powerful admin tools.
Here’s a summary of what you’ll find in each section of your manager portal.
On the left-hand side of your manager dashboard, you’ll see the following categories:
Dashboard: High-level insights into your ministry’s giving, broken down into meaningful time increments (giving from the last 30 days, last 12 months, and all time).
