Frequently Asked Questions
Who can see my email and phone number?
Your personal information is secure. Only the office staff and the leaders of any groups you join can see your email and phone numbers. Flocknote uses bank-level security to protect your information on its servers. We will never share your personal information to any entity outside of Saint Catherine.
Do I have to set up a login and password when I register?
No. We have chosen Flocknote in part due to its simplicity of use and that fact that it doesn't require you to create yet another account on yet another web site. You simply register your email address and phone number, and we'll take it from there.
However, we do recommend that you set up a login on Flocknote so that you can easily change your contact info, join or leave groups, and see previous messages that have been sent to your groups.
I didn't set up a password when I registered for Flocknote. How can I do that now?
It's easy to add a password to log into Flocknote after you're registered. Please follow these instructions from the Flocknote Help page.
What if I want to give you only my mobile phone number or only my email? Will I still get messages?
Yes. If you have registered only your mobile phone number and the group leader sends an email to the group, you will receive a text with a link that allows you to read the message on the Flocknote web site.
If you have only an email registered and the leader sends the group a text message, you will receive an email with the content of the message.
How do I join new groups or change my contact info after I've registered?
We recommend that you set up a password when registering on Flocknote so that you can change your group memberships and modify your contact information in the future.
After logging in to Flocknote, you'll see all of your current groups on the left. Scroll to the bottom of the list and click on "Show All Groups" to see all available groups that you can join.
Find the group that you wish to join and click on its name. On the top right of the group page you'll see a green "Join this Group" button. Click on the button to send a request to the group owner.
How do I see comments from other members of my group?
When a message goes out to a group, any one who receives the message may comment on it. If you would like to receive copies of these comments, you will need to make sure that you have turned on the feature for the particular group.
First, log into Flocknote: flocknote.com/stcatherinechurch. Click on the My Info button.
A panel with your information will appear. From the Groups tab, click on the comments bubble to turn the comment feature on for that group.
Remember: Gray is OFF and blue is ON. Enabling the comments feature is a personal preference (similar to the reply-all function in email). Some people like it, others don't. It can be helpful in some ministries when people are carpooling or organizing other events. It's up to you!
I don't want texts from a specific group, but I still want emails. What do I do?
Easy. If you respond "stop" to any text from Saint Catherine, that group will no longer send texts to your phone. You'll receive emails with the content of any future texts from that group. You'll also see a reminder at the bottom of each email with a link that allows you to re-enable texting for that group.
I no longer wish to be part of a group. How do I stop receiving messages?
You can unsubscribe from any group that sends you email messages by simply clicking on the "Unsubscribe" link in the bottom right corner of any message from that group. We recommend that you create a login on Flocknote to easily join and remove groups and to update your contact info.
Who can see comments that I leave to messages?
There are two types of comments that you can leave. If you respond using the blue "Add a Comment" button at the bottom of the email, then your comment is public and can be seen by all of the members of that group. On the other hand, if you reply to the email using your email program, then your comment is private and can be seen only by the group leaders.
If you reply back to a text message from the group, then your comment is private and can be seen only by the group leaders.
