How to Print a Church Directory

In Elvanto, you have the ability to create a church directory using the Reports section. This directory can be exported in formats like CSV, Excel, and PDF. This article will guide you through the process of creating a church directory and exporting it for printing.

Steps to Create a Church Directory:

  1. Log into Elvanto as an Admin.
  2. Access the Admin Area in Elvanto.
  3. Navigate to Reports > Add Custom Report > Standard Report.
  4. On the new page, give the report a name and description, such as "Church Directory."
  5. Select the option Use Only as a Report.
  6. Choose to display the report as Families and select the relevant criteria for the directory, including the people categories you want to include.
  7. Customize the columns you want to display in the report by dragging and dropping the fields into the Display Fields column. For a church directory, consider including fields like "Last Name" and "Family Contact Details" to include contact information for the entire family. If you only want contact details for the parents and list the names of family members, use the "Primary and Spouse Contact Details" and "Family Members (Names only)" fields.
  8. Once you're satisfied with the customization, click the Save & Generate button.
