Create Custom Lookup Tables for a Registration
This article provides steps to create custom lookup tables.
Mission Suite has a number of standard lookup tables to try to capture attributes about a person, including lookups for strengths, interests, spiritual gifts, and others. Additionally, you can create up to 5 lookup tables custom to your needs. You have complete control over the values of the lookup tables. You can add, change and delete the values as needed.
A Lookup can be added to any registration form for the registrant to answer when registering for an event. The custom lookup can become a part of each parishioners' faith journey giving you additional insight on how you can help them in their walk.
