Elvanto has 3 people statuses:
We use the concentric circle model to help us classify the status of our people:
Thanks for reaching out with this!
The three People Status' is strictly for classification of the different people in your account, which helps in relation to pricing. I'd encourage you to put those custom statuses you're wanting to implement in as People Cateogries instead.
Hope this helps you,
I get your point. I am not requesting to change the 3 classifications. Let me expand:
Everychurch is looking to move people from no/low knowledge of God to Fully devoted follower. Which ever scale they use to measure this movement (like the concentric circles we use) this is a key info - Where is X person on that scale? How many people are in each one each stage?
We currently are tracking this as a demographic, I guess it could be tracked as a custom field too. However, in order to answer this questions I have to run reports for each one of these. When I look at the table of categories which is a great way of looking at it, it is structured based on relation to pricing - "Active", "Contact", "Archived" this is the relationship to Elvanto, the program. I care about that relationship because I am the coordinator with Elvanto. However, leaders and the pastors don't look at it that way. They look at it based on the church's strategy "Circles of Commitment" or "Statuses" mentioned in the last email. This is the info that makes sense to them and affects the way they look at ministry. We can get to this info, through several reports and then placing them in a table in excel and then sending it over email.
My idea was to combine the two purposes in one table:
This may not be possible. But we would benefit to make the status of their christian growth easier/more accesible/more automate to report. I though this might be a possible way to merge both views/interests.
Yes, I can see how your lockdown workaround is complicating the designed use of people categories. I'd say that most of your current people categories are better facilitated in demographics but I know why you've set it up this way as we work on better lockdowns for minors. I'll be sure to record your feedback for future updates.
