NEWS & TECHNICAL UPDATES
05/04/2019: Due to an ongoing internal system fault, district users of the consents site may not receive any Connexional project authorisation email alerts. Until this issue is fixed, we recommend regularly checking whether any projects in your area are awaiting authorisation by using the FILTER BY STATUS function. Apologies 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: When entering or amending telephone numbers for office holders, do not leave any spaces, otherwise the system won't accept it. The fault is being looked into.
12/12/2018: It has been brought to our attention that Worship Leaders are displayed as Local Preachers within the Local Preachers & Worship Leaders tab on circuit-level Statistics for Mission. We apologise for the inconvenience while we are fixing this. Don't worry if you have recently added any Worship Leaders; you do not need to add them again as the data is recorded correctly on our database. The problem is with how the information is displayed on the website.
