User Guide


Every group must have at least one organisation – but organisations are designed to be flexible entities. An organisation can be a church, small business 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.
Start a new carbon footprint for an organisation.
Edit an organisation's name and details.
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.
