About this app

The "Sacrament Meeting Program" app provides users a quick, easy way to create their sacrament meeting programs. Then it gives them the option to (1) print traditional paper programs, or (2) give members access to a digital program on their phones.

Wards/branches can use this app to create and print traditional paper programs, or they can go 100% paperless saving literally hundreds of trees.

Benefits
This app offers many advantages over the old traditional paper programs, these include:
o Automatically formats and creates weekly sacrament meeting programs.
o Create both traditional paper programs and digital programs (visible in the app).
o Ward and auxiliary leaders can collaborate to add/manage the agenda items, calendar events and announcements in next week's program.
o Last minute program changes go live instantly in the digital program.
o Hymns and music deep link to the "Sacred Music" mobile app.
o Missionaries deep link to the "Called to Serve" mobile app.
o Pictures of recent stake/ward activities can be uploaded by auxiliary leaders for members to view and download from the app.

Traditional vs Digital Programs
1. Paper Programs – Once the program is created, a PDF version can be downloaded and printed in a traditional, two-page layout.
2. Digital Programs – The digital program can be viewed by scanning a QR code on the bottom of the printed program, or by downloading the Sacrament Meeting Program app and searching for your ward/branch.

Each sacrament meeting program is organized into content blocks. The app helps Admins create each block, one at a time. Then it does all of the formatting to create beautifully printed programs. Each week, your Sunday programs are available to print or view digitally.

This app is a wonderful paperless solution in the era of Coronavirus. It saves paper and links directly to the hymns! It has even more functionality than a paper program. I like the pictures and links to Ward leaders and missionaries. Direct-input is a nice time saving feature. Like that of Stake and Ward announcements. It can be updated on the spot. It can also be printed with a nice standardized format. As a church service, there are no advertisments in this app and its free!

It's a great start, but it's not there yet. This is on the right track, and may work for a ward just getting in to digital bulletins. App is buggy and interface could be more simple. Can't edit after creating each section. Can't add photos, even though it shows the option to. Hymns don't open in other app, even though it says they will. Can't add my own page of info. No musical number option. I'll continue using my own QR code and a PDF file... until this improves or I learn to code..

Initially we had some issues. But I contacted the help page and the owner addressed all of the issues that kept us out of our award and made the app very glitchy. The idea is wonderful and will make life very easy. I'm giving it a four-star because of the service rendered. Hopefully the glitches have been worked out.

What's new

Your Stake or Ward – Now if your Stake or Ward isn’t listed, you can add these yourself. Open the app, (1) tap the Menu (top-right) to access the Left-Menu, (2) select Ward Admin, (3) tap the Stake Profile button, and (4) use the green “+” Add button (bottom-right), and (5) add your Stake first and then add your Ward.
