An Overview of the Files Module

A safe place to share church files.

The files section makes sharing member-only documents safe and easy. Upload and store policies, minutes from church meetings, logo files and a host of others. It’s even possible to create private categories for a group, such as an administration team, council/session or a fundraising team.
Some features of the Church Social Files Module are:
  • A dedicated place for all your church files.
  • Create private group-only file folders.
  • Deleted files are saved in trash.
  • Bulk upload files.

Simple file access and management

In a world of Dropbox, Google Drive and iCloud, Church Social takes a simpler approach to making files available to your members. No new software required. Simply create folders, set permissions, and upload your files.

Sharing files using a link

You can easily share a direct link to files with other members of your congregation. This way you can link to them from a document or an email. To do so, click the 3-dot menu to the right of the file and then choose the Share option. This will pop up a dialog with a short link.

Note, a member must have access to the file within Church Social to be able to view it when shared using a link.

Warning: We do not recommend sharing the file URLs you see in your browser window since those links expire for security reasons.

Download multiple files

You can easily bulk download all the files in a specific folder in the files area. When viewing a folder, click the three-dot actions menu at the top-right of the screen, and then select the "Download files (ZIP)" option to download all the files in that folder.
