MSP comes in two editions: Online and Plus. Use the chart and video below to figure out which edition is right for you - and learn more about MSP's many features.
A powerful scheduling engine enables you to quickly create schedules that keep all volunteers engaged taking into account:
|Online access for volunteers|
The Web Terminal allows volunteers to access their schedules and online resources from anywhere. It is easy to setup and administer and is hosted on our internet servers, so there are no special requirements.
|Service notes and resources|
|Attach readings, media, and notes to services for your volunteers to access online.|
|Automatically link to USCCB readings|
|Help Lectors prepare by automatically attaching the USCCB's daily readings and audio pronunciation guides to your Masses. With one simple click, Catholic Lectors will be taken to the USCCB's scripture reading and audio guides when viewing their scheduled dates online.|
|Online enrollment forms|
|Make it easy for new volunteers to enroll directly from your church website using a customizable online form. Plus edition users can also add their own custom questions. Forms completed by new volunteers appear right within MSP.|
An integrated communication platform that lets you:
|Quickly send personalized text messages to everyone -- or just a group of volunteers -- to keep everyone informed. Text messages are billed at $0.02 per text sent or received. Note: text messaging available in the U.S. and Canada only.|
|Reminders and calendar integration|
|Reduce no shows with automatic email and text reminders sent a specified number of days or hours before each volunteer's scheduled dates. (Volunteers can change the number of days to suit their preferences for email reminders.) Replies to text reminders can be sent directly to your phone, or forwarded to all the scheduled volunteers to keep everyone in the loop! Text messages are billed at $0.02 per text sent or received. Note: text messaging available in the U.S. and Canada only. Volunteers can also easily add their serving schedule to their Google, iCal, or Microsoft Outlook calendar!|
A mailing label generator for postal mailings.
A powerful Rosterizer to quickly generate lists of volunteers.
|Integration with management software|
One-click synchronization of volunteer's name, address, phone, and email with supported church management software:
|Simultaneous, multi-user access|
|Access your data from anywhere and share it between any number of administrators. Your church secretary can be working from the office while a volunteer scheduler is working from home! Note: Pricing is partially based on the number of administrators that need access to the program.|
|Mobile App for volunteers|
|Volunteers with smartphones can download a free mobile app to view their upcoming services, see the full schedule, request substitutes, and update their profile on the go.|
|Mobile and web-based scheduling|
Web Admins are a type of administrator that have web-based access to Ministry Scheduler Pro via the mobile app or the Web Terminal. Web Admins have the flexibility to work from a laptop, tablet, or phone. Web Admins can:
Track and report on any type of volunteer information by creating custom fields. This flexible feature allows you to track certifications, training, birthdays, t-shirt size, emergency contact, and more!
|Online access for Leaders|
|Grant your Leaders special privileges to manage just their volunteers and service times online. Leaders can edit and schedule volunteers, send emails and text messages, and edit upload documents or notes, with no need to install the full administrator's client. Also, Leaders are automatically kept up to date on any changes made by volunteers in their ministries through the Web Terminal.|
|Track attendance easily and accurately without having to print paper sign-in sheets every week. Volunteers can check in with just a few simple clicks or taps, and Leaders can see who has arrived - in real time! After the service, attendance records are automatically entered into MSP, so you can run reports, email no-shows, or send thank you notes to last-minute substitutes. The Sign-in Kiosk is available on any computer or tablet with internet access.|
|Keep your database organized by grouping your ministries by location, department or however you see fit. Once your ministries are grouped into folders, you can view schedules and create emails and rosters just for particular folders. Ministry folders make it easy to manage hundreds of ministries with MSP and still focus your attention on just one part of the overall picture.|
|An MSP database can always be reverted to the last time you closed the program, but Disaster Recovery restores your database back to a specific point in time. This feature is a last resort for extreme circumstances – when an entire schedule is deleted, for example. Disaster recoveries require manual intervention by the MSP programming team, must be done within 30 days of the time to which you wish to return, and take 24 hours to process.|
Use MSP data with any application of your choosing. A few examples of how to leverage our public API include:
|Included administrator installations||Four||Four|
|The number of computers on which MSP may be installed for each edition. Additional installations can be purchased as needed for all editions.|
