You can link TouchPoint Involvements to eSPACE events so that future event dates/times will sync to TouchPoint, creating future meetings for the Involvements. To enable this integration, follow the steps below:
Step 1 - Create a User Account with eSPACE¶
If you do not already have an account with eSPACE, create one for your church on the eSPACE website. Click here to go to the eSPACE website. Once you have an account, you will enter the username and password in TouchPoint settings.
Step 2 - Enable the Integration on TouchPoint¶
To enable the integration, you will need to configure a few administration settings on your TouchPoint database. All these settings can be found on the Integrations tab, in the eSPACE section.
Enter your eSPACE user name in the eSPACE User Name setting.
Enter your eSPACE password in the eSPACE Password setting.
Toggle the eSPACE Enabled setting to True.
Toggle the eSPACE Enable FullSync setting to True.
Enter the Division ID in the Set Division ID setting. This Division will be assigned to all Involvements created from the eSPACE sync.
Optionally, set the eSPACE Days To Sync setting. This determines the number of days into the future to search for events in eSPACE to sync to meetings in TouchPoint. If you leave this setting blank, it will default to 60 days.
The eSPACE credentials you enter in the eSPACE User Name and eSPACE Password settings should be for an account with admin rights. These credentials are used to access eSPACE to retrieve a list of upcoming events, so the account information you use in these settings must be for an account that has access to all the events you plan to link to TouchPoint Involvements. TouchPoint users who link Involvements to eSPACE events will not necessarily need an eSPACE account since the credentials stored in the settings provide the access to the list of upcoming eSPACE events.
If the Enable FullSync setting (Admin > Advanced > Settings > Integrations > eSPACE) is set to True and the Set Division ID field is populated, the nightly sync will create Involvements for any occurrences of eSPACE events that are in a category of Sync-to-TouchPoint and where the eSPACEID (chosen in the Involvement > Settings > General > eSpace Event field) does not exist on any Involvement in TouchPoint. (Note that you will need to create this category in eSpace and assign desired events to it.) If the occurrence is marked isFinalApproved=TRUE in eSPACE, the Involvement will be marked as Approved in eSpace in Registrations/Mobile/Sites. Lastly, eSpace Categories will sync to Registrations/Mobile/Sites so long as the category names in eSPACE and TouchPoint match.
