User Guide


Every group must have at least one organisation – but organisations are designed to be flexible entities. An organisation can be a church, synagogue or charity that is located in a certain place.

To add a new organisation, click/tap “ Add a new...” on the Dashboard to open a menu:

Using Organisations

  • If your church has one main meeting place and no additional buildings, the church itself is the only organisation that you need.
  • If your church has a meeting place and additional buildings there are two options. Which option you choose will also depend on how you have set up your groups:
  1. The organisation is the church and each building (e.g. Main Building, Church Hall and Minister's House) is simply added to the organisation: This approach means that only in the Energy section is it possible to track per-building footprints.
  2. Or, each building can be its own organisation. In this case you would have a single “Main Building”: This would mean that you can track the footprint of each building across all calculator categories (Energy, Travel, Food, Expenditure, and Waste & Water).

Group Member Access

Depending on the type of group member you are, different options will be available:

View an organisation's details and carbon footprints – click/tap the organisations's name.
Edit an organisation's name and details.
Start a new carbon footprint for an organisation.
Rename a footprint.
Delete an organisation. If the organisation has footprints those will also be deleted. This cannot be undone!!
Add new organisations.

The permissions from Organisations “trickle down” to Footprints – if you can edit or delete an organisation you can also edit or delete its footprints.
