Group Management with ChMS Integration

When you integrate with your Church Management System, any list that is integrated will automatically become a group in your Gloo account. These groups will be flagged with the symbol of your ChMS to let you know they've been synced over.

If you want to add/remove people from these integrated groups, make the changes in your ChMS account and they will be reflected in your Gloo account once the integration is re-synced. Changes made to Groups in your Gloo account will not impact the group/list in your ChMS.

ChMS integrations are automatically synced every night. You can also manually sync your integration at any point under the integration tab in your settings.
