I am not receiving Group notifications, why not?

There are several things that need to be in place for Group notifications to work.  

  1. Are you signed into the myParish app with the same account that you joined the group with?
  2. Do you have notifications turned on within the phone settings for the myParish app?
  3. Do you have notifications turned on for the specific group within the myParish app “My Account” tab?
  4. Is your phone’s operating system up to date?  Check your phone settings for operating system updates.
  5. Is the myParish app up to date?  Check your app store for updates.
  6. Do you have a strong internet connection?  Check WiFi and Data.

How do I join a group?

Go into the Groups button of the myParish app and tap the Join button.  If you don’t already have an account you will be prompted to create an account.  Once you have an account your join request will be sent to the moderator of the Group.  The moderator will either accept or decline your join request.

When creating an account how do I change my birth year?

Different phones do this differently.  On many phones you will see a calendar with today’s date hi-lighted.  You will also see at the top of the display the year, day, and date.  You need to tap on the year and set the year FIRST.  Once the year is set you can easily change the month and day.
