Prayer Requests

Prayer requests can be submitted via the free and custom branded TouchPoint mobile apps. The Prayer Requests option is found on the Profile page when not logged in (unauthenticated) or under the My Activity section when logged in.

Note

The custom branded mobile app also allows for creating a Tile by using the Prayer Request Tile Type option in the app portal.

Configure Settings

Navigate to Administration > Setup > Settings > Features > Prayer Requests. The following settings control how prayer requests come into TouchPoint.

AnonymousPerson

Set the Value to the name of the person (or record) where anonymous or unmatched prayer requests will be linked. If no value is set, the system will default to using User ID 1. If there is no User ID 1, it will use the record with the admin username. This person will be the About Person and the Owner if prayer requests are created as Notes. If prayer requests are created as Tasks, this will be the About Person.

Tip

We recommend creating a record named Prayer Requests in your database and using that as the AnonymousPerson record.

LimitToRoleForPrayerRequests
This will limit all prayer requests that are submitted to the chosen role.
MakeTaskOwner

All prayer requests are created as Notes by default. If you prefer to have prayer requests created as Tasks, set the value to the person who should own those tasks.
