How do I create and/or edit a group member's position?

Describes how to create and edit a position group members or volunteers have within a group.

Updated this week

You will need to Limited Write Groups permission to perform this action.

One Church Software allows you to assign people to roles or responsibilities within a group. These are called positions. For example, you can assign a member to be a pianist, guitarist, or vocalist on the worship team.


​Adding a position to a group

Within the group, select the "Positions" tab, then choose "+ Add Position" button.

The position pop up will appear. If you would like people outside of the group to be able to apply for the position be sure to select Listed > Yes.

Once you have selected the appropriate group via “Groups” in the left-hand menu, open the group and go to the “Members” tab.

When group members are added you will have the option to indicate which positions they serve in by selecting the checkbox next to the position title.

You can assign existing or current members within a group to positions as well.

Editing a member's position within a group

Navigate to the "Groups" module, select the group you would like to make a change in, and select the "Members" tab.


Next, find the member you would like to change the position of, click the edit cog in the upper right-hand side of their box, and select "Edit."

Tip: If you are having trouble seeing the edit option, your browser width is likely too small; you will need to scroll the table to the right.

The "Edit" member pop up will then appear. Change the position by selecting the checkbox next to the position title. All positions for the group will be listed halfway down the pop up.


Editing a group position from someone's profile

You will first go to the person's profile you would like to make an admin or change positions of a group. Next, select the “Involvement” tab, find the group you would like to edit their position in and choose “Edit.”

If you want someone to be an admin in the group be sure to mark Admin > Yes.
