Version 1.10.0December 21, 2020
On the twelfth day of Christmas, My Well brings to thee: support for giving by text message!
(Sorry that didn't rhyme - we make software, not music!)
We're so excited to end the year with the release of this major new feature that many churches have been asking for. When we first launched web giving earlier this year, we focused on making the experience as quick and easy as possible. But, givers still need to know the URL for giving a gift! Now, your givers can easily get your church's unique gift URL sent to them via text. Here's how it works:
- Compose a text message to 40101. In the body of the text message, include your church's unique short name (e.g., mywell).
- Send the text.
- Tap the link you receive in response to give a gift!
We've also created pages that advertise the feature for your givers while they're on our site. Check out https://www.mywell.org/give/mywell/text-to-give, for example, or swap out your church's shortname in the URL to see your own version.
We hope this feature will make it even easier for you to communicate with your potential givers about how they can give with My Well!
Besides this major feature, we also shipped a few stocking stuffers 😉. Many of the pages in the web app got a performance boost to make them even faster to load. We improved some of the transition animations when giving, signing in, or registering a new account. We made sure that when people share links to your giving page on social media or via text message the preview shows your church's logo and color scheme. And, we fixed a bug we discovered when trying to "share" a link to our app from iOS, which always made it redirect to our home page.
All of us at My Well wish you and your church a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
