Set Up Your Group Structure

Before you create groups in Realm, plan your group structure.

Groups are vital to tracking attendance, using check-in, and measuring member involvement. So thoroughly setting up your group structure is essential.
  1. On paper, list all of the existing groups at your church.
  2. Combine the groups into logical categories.
  3. Give each primary category a name. These names will serve as your top-level ministry areas.
  4. Divide into secondary categories if needed.
