On February 28, 2019, we're saying goodbye to The City, but we have something even better for you in Realm.
The City's moble app allows people who don’t have a City account to request an invitation and immediately respond to it. For the member, signing up begins with a tap of the app's Help! button. Then, they enter your church’s City URL and their email address to receive an email invitation that allows them to finish the process.
In order for this to happen automatically, you must open your connect kiosk. If your kiosk is already open, you only need to provide people with your City URL and encourage your church to start using the app.
If your connect kiosk is closed, and you want to keep it that way, there’s a bit more preparatory work to do. All new invitation requests from the app need the approval of a church group leader before an email invitation is sent. Leaders and managers receive request-to-join reminders and can view outstanding invitation requests from the group. Assign one of your leaders or managers the responsibility of responding to invitation requests as they come in, so people who want to join your City can do so quickly.
