NEWS & TECHNICAL UPDATES
01/07/2019: +UPDATE+ CONSENTS SITE EMAIL ALERTS. The technology that drove these alerts has been superseded by Microsoft due to increased security and data protection requirements. This means that the Connexional Team (Conservation Office, Ecumenical Office) are not automatically notified of circuit or district actions on the consents site. In order to avoid any delay, we recommend direct communication with the relevant departments (contact details available in the project authorisation tab). A new internal system will be rolled out in due course. In the meantime, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
19/03/2019: The Help & Guidance pages for the consents site have been revised and updated and can be accessed here: https://propertyconsent.methodist.org.uk/guide
More information can be found on the Property Consents FAQs page.
11/02/2019: WEB USER AND OFFICE HOLDER CONTACT DETAILS. When entering or amending telephone numbers, do not leave any spaces, otherwise the system won't accept it. +UPDATE+ Please note that this will be resolved as part of the next scheduled update in September 2019.
