Discussion: How do you determine when a user should be deactivated?

Post by ccbug_admin » Wed Nov 04, 2015 2:17 pm

This thread is for discussing when one should deactivate users in CCB.

Should one ever deactivate a user?

If so, how does one determine that a user is no longer active within the church?

It all depends on the respective church's bylaws, etc. For instance, obviously death, removal of membership or move of member should and would make you inactive. There could also be a period of 6 to 12 months of inactivity. Our church currently bases inactive status on inactivity of 6 months to help keep membership records current.

Thanks! This is helpful. Question: Do only members get CCB accounts? Or can regular attenders get them? If so, do you use the same 6 mo. of inactivity rule?

No, anyone can register, but if there is no activity after 6 months (i.e., attendance, events, registration, giving, etc.) then the profile is set to inactive. We also perform a check for active and inactive profiles with same data or same name.

Got it! So what about communications - e.g., invites to participate in the Christmas or Easter service? Do you use a system separate from CCB to manage who receives these or do you not sed out communications once an individual is inactive?

No, we use CCB and have a list of categories/steps to follow when sending mass communications.
