Data Outage & Loss

 

Fix

  

Due to a server replacement with a third party company, Church Online Platform experienced a data capture outage March 1st at 3:20am CST until March 3rd at 1:30am CST. For services ran within this window, there is loss of data, which will impact Analytics.

Our team has addressed the root cause as well as added additional monitoring in place to prevent an issue of this scale occurring in the future.

We know data is a big piece for online ministry & an issue like this can have a significant impact. Please reach out to Support if you have any additional questions.

Google Analytics Update Coming

 

Improvement

  

💻 Update coming! We know data can play a valuable role in ministry and many use Google Analytics to answer key questions in online engagement. We are aware of the update that Google is requiring for all users to update their systems to include Google Analytics 4 (GA4). An update is currently underway to transition to GA4, as we continue to equip your church to better reach people & lead them in their relationship with Jesus. Stay tuned for updates on this in the coming weeks!

YouTube URLs

 

Fix

  

🚧 In progress! We’re working on fixing a few bugs to help church leaders and pastors just like you around the world. One fix we just rolled out is for you if you use YouTube as your streaming provider! YouTube live URLs containing /live now accepted when adding content to a service. Stream away!
