Getting started with your We Adore Him site

Getting started with your We Adore Him site

Body

If you haven't already, please review Next Steps before proceeding.

Your We Adore Him website is ready for you to get it all set up. Let's go!

  1. Review your site settings. After you login, visit Admin » Settings and review the many customizations available to you.

  2. Set up the schedule. Out of the box, your site is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. If you need to close some hours (or days), visit your Schedule page and edit away.

  3. Import your adorers. Now that your spreadsheet of adorers is ready (you did that, right?), it's time to import them. Follow our step-by-step guide and you'll have everyone imported in no time

  4. Add your adorers to the schedule. Now that your schedule is accurate and your adorers are imported, it's time to create adoration commitments for them. You have two options:

    • Do it yourself. You can manually create each adorer's commitment by clicking on an hour to create a new commitment, and selecting the appropriate adorer to assign them to that particular hour.

    • Let your adorers do it. In this case, after your site goes live, your adorers can login, visit the Schedule page, and create their own commitments. (Either way, new adorers can do this at any time.)

  5. Set up your chapel kiosk. Finish setting up the kiosk that you installed by following the rest of these instructions.

  6. Go live. Your site is delivered to you in "Onboarding mode". Switch it to "Live mode" on Admin » Settings » Website status.

  7. Send your welcome email. If you haven't already done this, it's time to let everyone know that they have an adoration account. This email includes a one-time login link, like what you first used to login and change your password.

    • Also, it's a good idea to encourage your adorers to add your unique We Adore Him phone number to their address book so that they'll recognize it when the system sends them automated text messages and phone calls.

  8. Spread the word. It's a great idea to promote your new site as widely as possible. Here are some ideas:

    • Link from your parish website. On your parish website, add a link to your site so folks can sign up for adoration online and see what hours are most in need of adorers.

    • Post it in the bulletin. We have an editable flyer that you can customize to include in your bulletin, or post on a bulletin board, or hang on the wall outside of the adoration chapel. Get it here.

    • Tell surrounding parishes. We recommend that you notify surrounding parishes so they too can link to your We Adore Him site on their respective parish websites and create an announcement in their bulletins.

    • Broadcast on social media. You can easily share the link to your We Adore Him site on social media where many adorers (and their friends) spend way too much time. 😉 This generates buzz and will get shared with everyone.

All done! Now, sit back and watch your chapel run itself. Almost. 😇
