Have you ever wondered how to put content in the left or right columns of your pages?  If so, this web session is for you!  Content panels can be used to place content in the left or right columns of your pages as well as display and remove content at certain times – without affecting the rest of the page.  Attend this web session to learn more about this along with other tips and tricks of the Panels manager.  We'll also take a look at how to make the best use of a new feature in E-zekiel – the Community Content Portal.

HelpRoot Launched

HelpRoot is officially up and running.  And that means, with the HelpRoot Volunteer Manager in E-zekiel.com and HelpRoot.com, your church or ministry has the ability to assess needs, identify volunteers, assign tasks and manage volunteer projects online.  E-zekiel customers with Silver, Gold or Platinum plans have immediate access to the HelpRoot Volunteer manager, so look for it in your Control Panel.  Or visit the public site at www.helproot.com.

User Names to Be Updated

Friday, October 03, 2008 View Comments Comments (0)
On October 1, we began the process of updating user names for E-zekiel customers.  Your email address will replace your current user name.  To make that happen, the next time you log in, you will be asked to update your profile,  including adding your email address. Once your profile is updated, you will be able to log in using your email address and existing password.

We are moving toward this log-in method so that in the near future customers will be able to use the same log-in to access multiple E-zekiel-related websites.  This will simplify the log-in process and the management of user profiles.

We trust this minor inconvenience is worth the effort in the long term.

Take Several Breaks

Friday, September 05, 2008 View Comments Comments (0)
Taking a break away from your computer display every hour or so can help reduce eye strain as well as other "comfort" issues that can develop with constant computer use.  Frequent short breaks are likely to be of better benefit than infrequent long breaks.  So take a moment to stand up and stretch – or simply to step away.  Need a reminder?  If you can't remember, set a timer.
