Coming soon - Customize CSS templates
Edit naming conventions to match your organization
Here are some examples:
Change Top level entity from "Church" to "Community"
Change Second level entity from "Campus" to "Satelite location"
Change Third level entity from "Group" to "Team"
Change User entity from "Me" to "Dashboard"
You are a unique organization and therefore have a wide-range of different types of groups, teams and sub-communities.
Now edit the group categories on the Table to better allign with your organiztion's structure.
Edit all the staff roles in your organization. You have uniqe positions and titles and we want the Table to reflect them.
Instead of using our subdomain, such as mychurch.tableproject.org use a URL of your choosing. A custom URL represents your brand better and makes remembering your Table community address a little easier.
The App directory is a collection of useful communication apps, blogs, podcasts and video streams. Now you have complete control of it.
Choose which apps are visable in the app directory, what categories they belong to and which ones are default for every page.
Not a fan of the "Christian Post" as a default app on the "Me" tab? No problem, now you can change it.
Table Pro FAQS
How do I get it?
Currently, you must first create a free Table account before you can upgrade to Pro. Once you have a Table Account, go to the "Manage" section and you will see a "Go Pro" button along the main navigation.
Why are you releasing a Pro version?
Over the last couple years, organizations outside of the church have been itching to utilize the Table software. Many non-profit organizations, ministry networks, schools, associations etc. are interested in connecting their constiuents, volunteers and employees on a social platform to encourage collaboration. Up until now, we have had to either say no, or put our focus on customizing one instance of the Table for their use. With Table Pro, these organizations can customize everything they need to without needing to interact with us. Table Pro will also be beneficial to churches that desire a greater level of flexibility than what the current free option offers.
Table Pro will also help fund further developent of all facets of the Table Project. As a non-profit organization, generating revenue is secondary to ministry impact. However, we still want to be good stewards of our resources and believe that offering a "subscription" based product will put us in an even better position to serve the church long-term.
Why isn't it free?
We still believe in the free model and will continue to focus on making the free verion of the Table better. With Table Pro, we recognized a win-win opportunity: build out functionality that would benefit a wider range of organizations and create a revenue channel to fuel continued growth. And we still made sure to price it so that churches could take advantage of the new features without a huge commitment.
Is the free version going to suck now?
The Table Project has always been commited to "gifting" our community software to churches and nothing has changed. We feel strongly about not polluting our free version with banner ads and such and continue to stick by that. We also are making the free version better than ever with recent updates such as the email digest, Discussion Board for iOS, calendar exporting, and future releases like the What's New app. We believe the addition of a paid version of the Table will only strengthen the free version in the future.
Will going "Pro" interfere with our F1 integration?
Upgrading to Table Pro will not interfere with any of your current integrations. It is a seemless process and your users will not even know it happened until they see the cool customization you have added.
If we upgrade, will we loose any data?
No. Your data isn't effected at all.
Do I have to sign a contract?
No. We hate contracts.
We are a large organization. After we pass 2500 users, is it really only $100/mo? What's the catch?
No catch. We want our pricing packages to be easy to understand. There are only two levels: $50 or $100. And it is based on real users, not the "size of your organization". We rather have many organizations at a relatively low price point than going after a few big fish. If you want to pay more...we are a 501-(c)(3), so you can always donate if you think it is too cheap.
This week on the Round Table webinar we covered how to populate apps. We'll show you how to add a video feed, set up a podcast and import an RSS feed. We'll also dive into the some of the unique features of our custom apps, like the discussion board. It'll be a practical, get your hands dirty kind of session.
