How do adorers request a substitute?

As long as there is enough time for the Substitute Finder to find a substitute, adorers can request a substitute through We Adore Him.

Customize this time frame with the Threshold to prevent requesting a substitute setting at Admin » Settings » Substitutes.

However, if there is not enough time for the automated system to do its job, adorers need to find a substitute offline (see below) or contact an adoration coordinator for assistance.

There are several ways to request a substitute.

1. Dashboard Page

Adorers can log in to their Dashboard page to view their adoration commitments. Next to each upcoming adoration date is a Request Substitute button which they can use to request a substitute for that date.

Administrators and captains can also request substitutes on behalf of adorers in the same way by visiting an adorer's Dashboard page.

2. Texting the We Adore Him Phone Number

Perhaps the easiest way to request a substitute is to text the word SUB or SUBSTITUTE to your automated We Adore Him phone number.
